"I worked with a CareerEngage mentor to learn what I needed to do before I asked my boss for a raise. She suggested I make a list of my accomplishments over the last 6 months and coached me on how to present it to my boss."

"Working with a mentor from the CareerEngage network gave me the confidence to look for a new job and provided me with language to use in the negotiation process where I was able to get a salary increase above what I was earning."  

"Jayne and CareerEngage have been an integral part of my early career, from helping me to develop a knockout résumé to connecting me with professionals in my field.

She always ends every meeting with take-away advice to help me work through future issues on my own. Anytime I have an issue that I am unsure of how to handle, Jayne is the first person I reach out to and she always has useful advice for me."

"Being involved with CareerEngage and working with Jayne gave me the tools and motivation that I needed to really take control of my career. During a recent workshop and meeting I learned what my goal for 2015 was and what I needed to do to reach that goal. A few months back I had started to feel I was ready for a career move, however, I was unsure where to begin. I had been at my current job for 5 years, started as an intern and moved up through the company. It wasn't until I heard from other CareerEngage members that I realized that I wasn't the only one who had all these mixed emotions about job search, career changes, what to do and not to do, etc.

"I found that sitting down and talking with people my own age about our likes/dislikes, struggles and successes, made me feel more comfortable and confident entering into the 'job search environment.' I wasn't the only one who was dealing with common situations such as how to talk to your manager about a raise/promotion, knowing if your in the right career, and how to negotiate when offered a job.
"Thanks to Jayne and CareerEngage, I felt very confident going forward with a recent interview process, which turned out to be a great success!" - Carly Sternberg, Healthcare Informatics Associate at New England Quality Care Alliance (NEQCA)

"Not only is Jayne an amazing coach and mentor, but she is also an amazing person. She went far above and beyond what would be expected of any career coach to truly help me find myself -- and a great job! When I met Jayne I was in a job that probably wasn't the best fit and she helped get through the painful process of leaving that organization and moving on to a new job that I love. From getting through the initial shock of leaving my job, to entering the job market and interviewing to helping evaluate offers, Jayne was there with great advice for all of it. She was never too busy to help and was always around when I needed her the most. She has the most positive attitude which is truly inspiring, and I really can't give her a high enough recommendation. Thank you Jayne!" - Melissa Castan, , CMP, DES Account Manager at PAI Management Corporation,

​"I have reached out to Jayne Mattson several times for various career- related advice. Each time, Jayne scheduled a phone call and was extremely willing to lend guidance. We've discussed how to brand yourself when interviewing for positions that involve a career transition, how to address a layoff in an interview, and tactics for salary negotiation. Jayne has been a fantastic resource and her advice was helpful in securing a higher salary in a new job I'm starting next month. I am excited to attend future events and would highly recommend attending a future event to anyone who hasn't had the chance yet." - Brittany Smith


"After working for the same company for almost 8 years, I needed advice navigating the current interview scene.  Jayne stepped up and helped me prepare for all aspects of the process from discussing salary ranges in early conversations to preparing for the on-site experience to negotiating the initial offer.
"Leveraging Jayne's knowledge of a company's perspective was invaluable.  She guided me through developing relationships with recruiters and I specifically learned how to close conversations in ways that set expectations for future follow-ups.
I really enjoyed working with Jayne; her passion for helping others proactively manage their careers is inspiring.  I highly recommend CareerEngage for professionals looking for a personalized approach to career development." ~ Lauren Pizzi, Marketing Professional


"I was introduced to CareerEngage after two years of working professionally here in Boston for a consulting group. It was such a breath of fresh air to have a group I could go to when I had questions about how to address job-specific and career concerns. I feel fortunate to have met the CareerEngage team and all of its members. It is always fun to catch up when we meet for professional development programs or just for a bite to eat. I feel more confident in my current role, particularly in working with management, and have a better sense of my next career steps."
