I knew the importance of networking. But it wasn’t until I was coached by Garland that I realized how many opportunities I missed for not utilizing networking as a tool to connect with people in the CRE industry. She taught me the tools necessary to network effectively and encouraged me to apply to a program to expand my knowledge and network. When I had to unexpectedly re-enter the job market due to a layoff, I was able to secure an offer that increased my salary by 27%. If you need someone to coach, cheer and give you the confidence to take the next step in your career, she is definitely what you need!
