Meghan Johnson
Career: Human resources in the legal field

There is a misrepresentation that people will 'find' themselves in high school or college, and know what kind of career they are destined for. getInsights helped me find direction towards my career through interviews, card sorts, games and brainstorming on what I really liked and disliked about my former and current jobs and interestes. I would recommed career coaching from getInsights to anyone in high school, college or beyond that doesn't really know what kind of degree or career that would be interesting and challenging for them.

Through their sequenced program, getInsights helped my daughter identify her natural inclinations and talents.

I liked the detailed information on the chosen professions that Alison researched... Alexa really enjoyed working with her.”

Educators

Jacque Barker
Career Center, Foothill High School

“Career coaching is a valuable resource for high school students today. Students have a very difficult time looking at all of their options. Career coaching is a vital part of their life journey. getInsights is an excellent resource that will allow students to determine where they should begin their career exploration.”

Business Education Instructor, Cal High School

“Trying to get our young people today to think about what they want to be and how they want to spend their life is a difficult task at best. getInsights can get even the most seemingly disinterested students to think and reflect about their future. The content of the workshop from getInsights is one that all people need, not only our teenagers.”
