Karin ValentiNovember 1, 2022.College Careers Consulting was a pleasure to work with. They helped us every step of the way, and found the best Universities for our son based on his grades, major, University size and personality. Using a college consultant saved us time and money, and made the stress minimal. I highly recommend them!Eric JoobNovember 1, 2022.Kal was a wonderful help to us in getting our daughter’s common app done by the deadline, along with all essays, other college applications, & college scholarships. I’m amazed by how intuitive she is & how she was able to bring the best out of our daughter & her experiences. I highly recommend working with Kal & her team if you are looking to get your common app done quickly & if you want your student to stand out! Thanks Kal!🤩Sue GemuendOctober 30, 2022.Thank you Kal for helping our daughter with the entire college application process. Kal went above and beyond what we initially hired her to do. Highly recommend College Career Consulting.Clarissa VazquezOctober 25, 2022.I met with Kal soon after I turned 21 & I still think about our meeting every day. When I met with Kal, I went into this session not fully knowing what to expect, however any doubts were quickly cleared. She was detailed & direct, and made sure any questions I had were answered. Being in my 20’s and being able to better equip myself with my new learned insight, has given me an advantage. Thank you Kal ♥︎Gabriel BucataruOctober 20, 2022.How can I say this? It's almost like when you get to that part in a movie when everything starts making sense while up to that point all was a nebula.| All this to say that Kal gave priceless advice to our oldest daughter who's ready to launch off to college next year. This is a critical time in their age when they need to be confident and clear about the path they're taking in their life. I wish I would have had this advice when I started out. it would have saved me a couple of decades of trying to figure myself out. Having an analytical definition of what makes sense (and what doesn't) for her to pursue, according to her aptitudes, abilities, and character is worth the world. So yes, absolutely I do recommend Kal's services. She's one of those rare counselors that do listen.Jennifer SchumanJune 3, 2022.Are you looking for a career counsellor for your teenager? We hired to Kal to assist our two daughters and now they have greater confidence in their futures, thanks to Kal’s exceptional process. They are now motivated to take on a concise career direction, visit colleges, establish goals and work toward excellence, which is truly what we want for our children. In all honesty we cannot think of a better way to invest in our children. Giving them this gift of insight has boosted their confidence exponentially, and will continue to give clear direction as they make informed decisions for themselves over their lifetime. Kal, you are invaluable!Angela FitchMay 23, 2021.My son began working with Kal Otis for most of his Junior year in high school. She works along side him through, what began as, a tenuous college preparation process. Both he and I feel supported and have more self confidence, which has helped ease stress that otherwise is invariably part of the college admissions process. I recommend College Careers Consulting if you are looking for knowledgeable, supportive and caring people to help your high school child on that exciting next step.kim petersonMarch 28, 2021.Kal’s assessment tools, professional input, and ability to help my daughter analyze what the different career options would truly look like has had GREAT impact! My daughter bravely reconsidered what she always thought she wanted. While looking at the different programs colleges offered, and the price tags that were attached, my then senior daughter was able to more accurately articulate what she was drawn to—what she was passionate about. We had already begun making plans and decisions, but with great confidence, my daughter made a change in college choice and career choice! She is almost done with her freshman year now, and has no regrets. She absolutely loves where she attends and loves to talk about her future classes. We are so grateful for the time invested with Kal. Our next son, who is a junior in high school, is also going through the assessments. We are so excited for him to match his interests and strengths to a career that he will enjoy and find satisfaction in. We are grateful for Kal’s experience and wisdom. We highly recommend College and Careers Consulting to all families with high school students!Danielle Prouty TransitionMarch 28, 2021.I can't speak highly enough of Kal and College Careers Consulting. I started the process around 4 months ago with my daughter, who is a junior in high school. In the last four months, I have noticed a significant increase in her focus and preparedness towards her college research and degree interests. As a mother of two teenagers, I'm sure most Mom's can relate to the vast amount of work required in getting your child ready for the college and degree interests and the winding complicated path ahead of them! There also exists the dynamic of your child wanting their independence in this process which can create a challenge in having your teenager want to listen and embrace guidance from their parents. In just the last four months working with Kal, my daughter has gone from not knowing what careers she was interested in, to being very close confident with the research and knowledge gained through Kal's processes. This has propelled her to start making decisions and developing solid options regarding her future. My daughter was much more engaged with Kal, and working together with her to increase her awareness of her strengths and potential weaknesses in various subjects and possible degrees and future career planning. Kal's communication on what these tests and tools provide in terms of gaining a general understanding of her interests and strengths are very clearly explained throughout all of their work together. Kal also facilitated introductions to people working in the career fields that my daughter showed interests and strengths in and these introductions provided real experiences for her to learn from through their meetings. My daughter even stated something that truly brings concern to light, when she shared that many of her friends are struggling trying to sift through college mail, feeling pushed to consider universities without considering what majors are a good fit! We still have another year ahead of us, and I am more than confident that with the guidance that College Career Consulting is providing will vastly improve the odds of choosing the best college and degree path for my daughter. I also have a son that will be a freshman next year, and am hoping to start the process much sooner with him.
