I have had the good fortune to have Rosalinde as my career coach. She quickly became my friend, advocate, mentor, and sanity checker all in one by providing perspectives and viewpoints that helped me better prepare for each step of the interview process. Ros enabled me to look at the content through the eyes of the interviewer and tailor my responses accordingly. In our sessions together, she helped me discover hidden strengths and assets I brought to the table and showcase them appropriately. Rosalinde genuinely cares, and her dedication comes through in the extra time she spent to prep me or check in to ensure I was ready for the interviews/discussions. #advocator, #empowers
First, let me express my gratitude for the impact that Rosalinde has had on my life and the lives of my family. I cannot thank her enough for everything she has done that has contributed to where we are today.
Now, the reason why I am so thankful – Rosalinde is a rare individual who is equal parts professional and empathetic for what her individual clients are experiencing. From the time I was first introduced to her to the call where I got to tell her I had accepted a new position, she never once forgot to ask how I was doing and how the family was holding up in light of everything that was happening. She worked tirelessly to help polish me into a marketable product and brand, teaching me how to effectively network and present myself to prospective employers, all while promoting me to her own circle of peers. Through everything from interview prep to employer negotiation strategies, she offered expert assessments and advice that never had me settling for less than what she thought I was worth. Ultimately, that was her most valuable service – getting me to buy into myself and realize what I had already achieved and all that I had to offer.
Again, many thanks, Rosalinde. You come with my highest recommendation.
It felt divinely appointed to meet Rosalinde. Having been in the same industry for a number of years, I was burned out and numb. I knew I needed change, but I didn’t know what I didn’t know! What did I want to do? What suited me best? What avenues should I pursue with the experience I had? Rosalinde shined a light on who I was and what I wanted in ways I never could.
Through a series of helpful coaching sessions, assessments, and questionnaires, Rosalinde helped me sort through my past and present, gaining a clear understanding of where I wanted to land with my future. This wasn’t a simple reworking of a résumé and a personality test. Rosalinde is gifted. She is able to look at you and see who you are and what you offer. I had a lot of trouble gleaning good things from my past when all I could see were the tired old things I had always done. Rosalinde applied her experience, intuition, and fresh perspective to draw out the gems in what I thought was a barren wasteland.
Beyond being immensely helpful with tools and guidance for moving forward, Rosalinde helped me redefine my perspective of myself! That was actually the most encouraging and compelling part of the experience of working together. Rosalinde is the kind of person who doesn’t help you once and forget about you. She cares about each person she meets. Her clients are also friends. I anticipate sharing my professional pursuits and personal gains with Rosalinde for many years to come. She’s a treasure. If you’re looking for more than the cookie-cutter, assembly-line approach to your future, then Rosalinde is where you’ll find what you need.
I reached out to Rosalinde while I was having issues that were affecting my professional and personal life. Within the first 10 minutes of speaking with Rosalinde I already felt as if this is what was needed to elevate my quality of life. The intensive class was very tedious on top of normal work schedule but was gratifying every step of the way. Every lesson resonated with me and my ‘then’ negative attitude slowly began to quiet itself. Along with the class Rosalinde took the time to re-evaluate some of my professional goals which turned out to be mildly comedic. After completing the assessment the documents displayed to me that I was right where I was supposed to be. Rosalinde is an absolutely professional who takes her time and let’s you come to the conclusion you seek rather than pointing it out. Her no nonsense approach aid you in filtering the fluff and really get down to the hard issues. If you are struggling with work life or home life, look no further. This entire evolution was an A+ and 10/10 would recommend to everyone.
I’m a registered nurse for a health organization in Puerto Rico with 7 years of experience working as a client services specialist. When I lost my job, I sought out help from Rosalinde, who impressed me from day one. She improved my knowledge of interviewing and responding to potential employers by role-playing situations in both English and Spanish. Within weeks, she was a tremendous support as a coach. It was not only her skills as a coach that impressed me, but her amazing positive attitude and eagerness to stick tightly to my goals. Rosalinde is an excellent resource and brings the kind of experience one is looking for in an expert. As a coach, she’s an asset to your life and career.
I have had the opportunity to experience Rosalinde’s career coaching skills in two very different and important ways, a LinkedIn profile overhaul and a role-playing experience.
Ros completely changed my opinion about the value of role play as a tool to prepare for an upcoming conversation. My professional training, both as a Speech-Language Pathologist and as a Coach, involved interacting with practice clients in a real way–– there was no acting. And frankly, until recently I didn’t see the value of creating a ‘contrived’ situation. Then I was given the assignment to engage in a coaching conversation with an organizational leader who was seeking a narrative coach. Ros stepped into the role of a leader so I could practice. It was an amazing experience –– real, helpful, revealing of my strengths and needs, and ultimately confidence building. I do believe that life gives us many opportunities to practice and learn in real-life situations. For those situations where there’s a lot riding on the outcome of a future conversation, I highly recommend Ros as a coach.
I also had the experience of Rosalinde’s mastery of LinkedIn through a group webinar she gave. Ros is now my ‘go to’ person for anything LinkedIn. She’s knowledgeable, strategic, and a breath of fresh air. I needed to update my LinkedIn profile, and I kept putting it off. Working with Ros made it easy. Not only did I feel great about my profile when we were done, but I had also learned about many useful features I wouldn’t otherwise have known about.
Rosalinde and I are in a Mastermind Group for Coaches. There were approximately 12 people in our group from several countries. After only about 4 sessions together, Rosalinde created a poem that captured the personality of every single individual. We were dumbstruck with the accuracy and proficiency demonstrated in the poem. A real talent, not just for writing but for capturing the unique essence of 12 individuls in such a short time. Rosalinde has been a generous and compassionate group member. Anyone would benefit greatly from having her behind one’s efforts to get connected and hired.
Ros can, within mere minutes, hone right in on a deep truth and help you shift with a question or two. I walked away from a conversation with her with several ideas and tools to help me see something deeper and more profound than I expected. I left feeling more open, aware, and empowered in a way I wasn’t before. She is an incredibly gifted, warm, and insightful person to work with.
It felt like magic! You asked a question right away that I didn’t know I had given you enough information for that shifted things powerfully for me. I know what seems effortless or magical is simply the result of a very high degree of skill and giftedness.
As a professional Purchasing/Supply Chain Manager, I am not a professional career/job Human Resource type person. When I re-entered the job market, I felt it was wise to get professional assistance. I chose Stewart, Cooper, and Coon consulting firm, and I was assigned Rosalinde Rosado (Ros) as my career coach. I am happy with my decision. Ros was such a professional, sincere lady to work with.
Ros was very thorough and worked at my speed. Some of the projects she gave me were eye-opening. They reminded me of portions of my career history I had forgotten many years ago. Ros as a professional coach, has such insights into the job search process that the day-to-day working manager has no clue. She pointed out the best practices and the techniques which were most successful for other professional-level managers.
I honestly feel Ros had my best interest in mind. I would recommend that other managers who find themselves in the job market hire a professional to assist them. Rosalinde was exceptional in how she helped me.
Working on your LinkedIn profile can often feel like a daunting task; it did for me. When it comes to writing your LinkedIn profile, you want to consult with someone well-experienced on the social media platform.
I contacted Rosalinde, and she walked me through the process with her skillful coaching questions and expertise in story writing. She did not rush me through the process; in fact, we went through a few drafts until it reflected my professional experience and the services I offer in my own business, Gracious Space, LLC.
Don’t let writing your LinkedIn profile get you frustrated. Instead, show your best self and contact the expert, Rosalinde Rosado. You’ll be glad you did!
I worked with Rosalinde to prepare for a series of interviews for an executive role. She spent several hours coaching me for the difficult questions that could come up throughout my interview process. In addition to the rigorous question preparation, Rosalinde assessed my remote interview location and recommended appropriate lighting based on the meeting platform (WebEx, Zoom, Teams) used during the remote interview. She also made recommendations about my interview attire. She explained how important it was that I looked ready for the interview and asked that I wear shoes to reinforce the formality of an interview even though I was interviewing from home.
I must say I have never been more prepared for an interview despite the pandemic circumstances. Rosalinde is well versed in what’s happening in the recruiting industry. She stays on top of industry best practices and helps her clients focus on what’s most important to seize their next career opportunity. Her communication style is straightforward and professional. I plan to work with her again when I decide to look for my next career opportunity.
Extra note: Rosalinde, thank you for sharing your skills and talent with the world. I could not have done it without you!
Rosalinde was spectacular in helping me. I worked with her to prepare for multiple interviews. She helped me through many mock interviews to practice my answers. Rosalinde was committed to helping me no matter the time of day. Her help paid off I ended up getting my dream job. I can’t recommend her enough for guiding me through the process.
I felt ready to send my information, knowing my resume and cover letter would expertly reflect my skills and personality. When I received the offer for my current role, Rosalinde Rosado was one of my first calls.
She is an innovative thinker whose holistic method of professional profile building – resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn – helps you to show your best self to prospective employers and contacts. She loses as much sleep as you do, if not more, throughout the process and follows up frequently to check on your progress. Working with her feels like a conversation between friends as she coaxes out your best qualities and presents them in a way that demonstrates just how effective you were and will be in the future. I truly appreciate all of her hard work and diligence and am so grateful for her incredible help.
Rosalinde has a deep understanding of government, the private sector, as well as media and the arts. She is able to use all facets of her knowledge to help move your career forward. She can help you transition into a different role seamlessly by elevating your professional and personal strengths. Rosalinde is exceptional and I know that you can trust her skills to help you with your future success.
Rosalinde is a real professional. Her work is outstanding. She was very responsive, detailed and accurate. She always responded to my phone calls, emails and texts immediately. She was very patient throughout the process and a pleasure to work with. My new resume is awesome! I would highly recommend Rosalinde if you need to update your current resume/cover letter or if you need to create a new one. I am very happy with my new resume and you will be too. Rosalinde is the best in the business.
Rosalinde is a fierce and inspiring coach, that I would highly recommend. Her passion for coaching shines through with the energy she brings to each session. Due to her background in acting and pursuing the arts, she brings a uniqueness that is unparalleled. Her encouragement led me to pursue goals and dreams that I otherwise did not think possible, and I am forever grateful for her guidance.
I reached out to Rosalinde because I needed help transitioning into a new career. I wanted to be an analyst but did not have any prior experience. I knew I needed to speak to someone who is knowledgeable about career changes, and who could also help me create a killer resume. Rosalinde was so kind to respond to my LinkedIn message and arrange a phone consultation. During the one-hour phone conversation, I got to learn about her own career switch experiences and how she had helped others make the transition. The conversation left me feeling inspired and motivated to pursue what I was after; I became very hopeful of the future. Long story short, as a result of Rosalinde’s resume critique and motivation, I was able to put together a resume that not only got me an interview a few weeks after our conversation, but also got me the job. I would personally recommend Rosalinde as a career coach and resume developer; she is skilled and knowledgeable in what she does; she will get you results.
I reached out to Rosalinde during a critical point in late 2019. I had to walk away from some business investments along with personal situations that really required a 3rd party perspective to move quickly through. She stepped into my life consistently over the course of the months that we worked together remotely by zoom. Our work was centered around immediate solutions that I could take into my day. She helped me find useful tools to reclaim the mental space I needed to make the right decisions. She is a kind, funny, intuitive listener who is well trained in gently bringing her clients to their own resolutions. She was able to bridge each session together and tie a consistent theme for success. I highly recommend her as a coach during a chapter that needs guidance.
Great experience from start to finish. Rosalinde is very knowledgeable and able to consolidate work experiences in a concise and intuitive manner. I felt as though she cared about success in my career, not just pleasing me during our interactions. Highly recommend for anyone looking to revamp their brand on LinkedIn or enhance their resume.
Rosalinde was such a great help with my résumé and interview. She went above and beyond in guiding me and showing me what a professional resume needs to look like. Not only did she help me with the resume, but she also helped me when I was looking for positions that would be most beneficial with my background of study. Any time I had a question or needed her help in something, she has always been available and ready to help me out in any way. The resume she created for me is above and beyond, which is one of the reasons why I’m at my current position. When I went for my interview, my now manager was so impressed with the layout and information added to the resume, which she said was one of the main things that caught her attention. It was not overpowered by words but included just the right amount of information and detail. Before my interviews, Rosalinde would also roleplay as the interviewer and myself the interviewee so I could have a better sense of the type of questions I would be asked pertaining to the role. This boosted my confidence and lowered any type of nervous feelings I had before walking into the interview just because I already knew what type of questions to expect. A great resume makes employers want to meet you in person and offer that interview and possibly the job. I am so grateful for all the help she gave me and to this day still does. Rosalinde’s approach to coaching and writing a résumé got me my job!
When I made my decision on leaving the U.S. Navy, I sought out an expert resume writer that took the time to understand my position, my goals and ultimately, what I wanted to look for in future employment outside the service. I was fortunate enough to be connected to Rosalinde through a mutual friend. We discussed several of my goals and experiences in which she, in turn, produce an extraordinary resume along with several cover letters based on the jobs I wanted to apply to. Rosalinde’s talented writing skills and meticulous attention to detail afforded me the opportunity to land several interviews with some of the biggest aviation companies in the country and ultimately landed my dream job. Rosalinde and I have continuously worked together on updating my resume over the last year which not only keeps me one step ahead of the competition but only proves her endless support towards my success. My smooth transition to life outside the military is immensely owed to Rosalinde’s ability to take military experience, translate them into “civilian terms” and through a piece of paper, help me gain the confidence the workforce demands. Also, much of my success would not have been possible without her ability to guide and advise me through my job searches. There is no doubt I will continue working with Rosalinde for years to come and will recommend her services to anyone that seeks better employment. I am extremely confident she will deliver the highest quality career coaching and resume writing which will help their careers grow.
Highly recommend Ros! She is a very gifted career coach and comes from a powerful background as an actor. This vantage point can help anyone improve in their “performance” in the job search process and business in general. Always engaging with a tremendous heart. Ros is a top-notch professional.
Rosalinde was one of the most helpful and professional people I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with in finding a job. From day one until the conclusion, she helped me every step of the way with my resume and the whole job acquiring process. First, she built a professional resume from scratch, which would be picked up by the technology systems businesses use in finding job applicants. For each job I applied for, Rosalinde would tweak my résumé and cover letter to market myself to that given company positioning why I should get an interview and what I would be able to offer that company. I received an invitation to interview for each company I applied for, which is where Rosalinde spent a fair amount of time with me in person as well as over the phone preparing for each one. Eventually, I was offered a position that I’m happy with and it fits me very well. I would rate working with Rosalinde an absolute 10 / 10!
Rosalinde was a personable, committed and knowledgeable career coach. I had the pleasure of working with her to prepare for an interview during a time I was changing careers. We engaged in a mock interview in which she helped me practice my answers, posture and helped me learn how to better express myself. She told me what to expect and built up my confidence significantly. She also helped me with some unique interview questions which amazed my interviewers. I got the job I was interviewing for and I would highly recommend her.
Almost 3 1/2 years ago, I was contemplating a big career change. I was working as a Cosmetics Executive, and looking into starting a business that would incorporate my love of creative expression, as well as allowing me to have a more flexible schedule to accommodate my toddler’s needs. Rosalinde was a constant source of support, and helped me wade through the pros & cons of my personal situation, and led me through the steps one by one. Her instincts and keen insights proved to be invaluable as I rode the roller coaster of emotions associated with making such a life-altering decision!
To this day, I still seek Rosalinde’s counsel – whether I need assistance with a business decision, or a word of encouragement, she makes herself available. I will always be grateful for the role Rosalinde played in my successful path to my new career…
Rosalinde is a real professional, Her work is outstanding. She was very Responsive, Detailed and Accurate. Rosalinde always responded to my phone calls, emails and texts immediately. She was very patient throughout the process and a pleasure to work with. My new resume is awesome! I would highly recommend Rosalinde if you need to update your current resume/cover letter or if you need to create a new one. I am very happy with my new resume and you will be too. Rosalinde is the best in the business.
Rosalinde was on point in prepping me for my job search and the interview process! I prepared for the questions they asked and knew exactly how to phrase my answers thanks to the time we spent on the phone conducting mini mock interviews. This was another bonus, she had no problem working over the phone with me because my busy schedule did not allow for business hour meetings.Her style made me so much more relaxed and comfortable during the whole experience. I would not have gotten this interview if it were not for the detailed critique she did on my resume as well. Not only did she perfect the technical details, but she was able to pull my strongest points and make them stand out. Needless to say, I got hired with the first job I applied for! I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Rosalinde assisted me in writing my resume basically from scratch. I had been with the same job for 12 years and was moving out of state, so I was very out of the loop with current employer expectations when it came to writing resumes. I was able to email her what I had and she responded quickly and detailed. She not only demonstrated expertise with wording and phrasing, but also the proper format and page layout. She was very good at making our exchanges of corrections via email very quick, easy, and painless for an older person such as myself. I got hired out of state before I even obtained the new state’s license!
