Carla Vastine worked for eight years at Career Consultants Inc., starting as a Sales Recruiter and, ultimately, as Branch Manager and Major Accounts Representative. While at Career Consultants, Carla collaborated with people seeking all levels of employment, from entry level positions for recent grads to higher level sales management positions for experienced sales professionals. In addition to matching job seekers with client companies for interviews and, ideally, job placement, Carla advised job seekers on how to create compelling cover letters and resumes. Carla's direct contact with hiring managers throughout the interview process allowed her to get an "insider's view" about what companies seek in resumes and cover letters as well as in interviews. The hiring manager perspective, combined with her coursework in Counseling and Master's Degree in Education, enable Carla to effectively counsel prospective job seekers about successful cover letter and resume writing strategies.

Sam Sorensen taught college writing for six years, tutored in a university writing center for five years, and worked as an editor for online publications and freelance hire before coming to Tredyffrin as the Adult Programming Coordinator. They have taught previous workshops on crafting resumes and cover letters while helping job seekers navigate the intimidating job-hunting landscape. Their extensive background positions them as a kind and knowledgable coach for writers of all skill levels.
