I wanted to thank you for your services and support over the last few months. I wanted to let you know I was offered one one the two jobs this year.  I truly believe that I would not have been successful this time around if it wasn’t for the time I spent with you preparing. Your advice and insight into the process was invaluable to me. I will be sure to recommend your services to any and all future applicants that I meet.

Hi Karen,  Just wanted to thank you again for all your help with my interview preparation. It paid off and I was offered a nod with Surrey Fire Department and will be starting in May. Thanks again.  March 2018

I am now one of Surrey’s newest Career Fire Fighters. I start in July . Thank you for all of your coaching and experience, I know that it really helped me nail the interview…

Thank you Karen for all your help throughout the past year. Your help with interview skills helped me get my dream job at Delta fire, thanks again!

Karen was very professional, friendly and provided outstanding work. 
She had a wealth of knowledge of the fire industry. Anytime I needed to update or change my resume, communication was excellent everything and was complete.
She is so very professional, and supported my journey to becoming a career firefighter.

I highly recommend her services .
Thanks again for everything. I wouldn’t have gotten hired without your help.

Thank you so much for doing a session with me. It was such a massive help. I felt sharp and prepared for what was presented at the interview.

Thanks again, Karen. Have a great weekend

Hi Karen, I got hired by Surrey and starting on Monday!!! Thank you for your interview prep tips, clearly helped!

As the Fire Training Officer with Sun Peaks Fire Rescue, I looked to Karen to provide interview prep / training for our Work Experience Candidates. Because of her proven and effective training methods, 85% of our WEP firefighter candidates successfully earned full time firefighter positions in departments across Canada. I would without a doubt recommend Karen and Destiny Career Planners if you are pursuing or advancing your career in public safety.

Hi Karen,

It’s with great pleasure I am writing to let you know I have finally achieved my lifetime goal and dream of becoming a structural firefighter. I have worked continuously for nearly a decade building the best resume I could but was missing a critical piece and that was my interview skills.  You successfully taught me how to prepare and formulate answers which led to improved interview score and my confidence.  I cannot thank you enough you have contributed greatly to my journey and life passion.
