superstarcareers-logo1 I got 6 job offers using these techniques! I had minimal success in obtaining interviews until I met Michelle Braun and she educated me on key factors to succeeding, specifically during times of an economic crisis.

I can’t say enough about working with Michelle. I don’t think I will attempt a career move without her going forward.

I started working with her after the initial job application process – once I started interviewing. She helped me cover all my bases in preparation and research. She’s a great sounding board for ideas (and super knowledgable about the industry). She’s got tactical chops to streamline the job hunting process and knows how to take you from *impressive candidate* to *exceptional candidate that we can’t live without.*

Michelle helped me through the decision process when weighing opportunities for multiple offers. She walked me through a comprehensive debrief after every conversation I had regarding an opportunity – which has been completely invaluable. Even when an interview, conversation or negotiation didn’t go the way I would have wanted, instead of brushing it aside and pushing forward (like I normally would do) – we examined why the conversation didn’t go the right direction. Which increased my own self-awareness and knowledge.

She helped me get the salary and benefits I want. I have no uncertainty about the decision I’ve made going forward and Michelle got me here. One of the best things that came out of working with Michelle (outside of getting exactly what I want in my next job) is that my level of stress throughout this process was probably half what it would have been without her.

If you don’t give her a call to get a free consultation, you’re making a big mistake. OH – and she works with people applying for promotions. So you don’t necessarily need to be in a job search. Basically, if you want to grow in your career – she can get you there.

forest-featherston I can attest to how great this “Resumes for a Richer Life: Stand Out from the Crowd” workshop is! Michelle has a strong background in HR and she knows the “inside scoop”. I’ve hired resume writers before, but learning to do a great job yourself is a much better a deal! The class flies by and you leave with real knowledge.

Michelle’s SuperStar ReCareer Revolution “Boot Camp” is just that – you’ll receive in-depth training but it is going to be work! (hence the phrase “Boot Camp”)  You don’t get to just sit back and absorb, you become an active participant in the experience. 

You learn from the other participants as well as Michelle.  This sharing is one aspect of the often dreaded word, “Networking” which suddenly isn’t as over-whelming as you might have thought. It gains a whole new meaning after this event – and it works! 

In fact when I thought back over my career, I discovered that even a network of 1 can be amazing.  Years ago, that one person took me to my next job, where a new person sent me along to the next and even once more after that.  Just one person “chain reacted” my next four positions.  Imagine if I had cultivated a network of even a handful of people.  It doesn’t have to be quantity, but it does help if it’s a quality network.

You are going to discover a lot of things about the job market and hiring strategies being used these days. However, what I felt was most important for me (if you do the work), is that you’re going to learn a lot about yourself along the way – which, surprisingly, may just change what you were originally searching for.

The surveys, materials, and information Michelle provides thru this experience will focus you in the right direction for your job search.  You won’t be spinning your wheels using old and outdated search methods that bring you dismal – if any – responses. You will be using statistically proven methods to get you the appropriate responses to your job search, allowing you to pick and choose among these valid and promising ones.

If you are truly interested in furthering your career – whether it be upward, sideways, or brand new – you can’t go wrong with this event.  It’s a solid investment in yourself, as well as your future!

superstarcareers-logo1 Words cannot express the gratitude that I have for Michelle Braun.After attending her workshop on Resumes for a Richer Life: Stand Out from the Crowd, I began immediately using the techniques to revise my resume. Within two months, I not only got the opportunity to interview, but received a job offer too!

– Shay Williams, Health Insurance Charlotte, NC

miranda-hairston It is been a pleasure working with Michelle Braun. Michelle is insightful & strategic. She constantly provides invaluable information on making S.M.A.R.T. goals. Michelle uncovers and addresses the challenges that can prevent anyone from presenting their best self. I encourage you to attend a Super Star Careers workshop to get the tools to position yourself for your next level.

superstarcareers-logo1 Michelle is exceptional. As soon as we began SuperStar Career Coaching, my professional game went to another level.

Michelle and I began working together because I found myself in a situation where I had to get out of my current job. It was just too much. It was too much for me personally, professionally, and too much for my marriage.

I always thought I was good at what I did, but I can’t say that I was as confident as I should have been. She helped unlock a side I’ve always wanted to have, but was never able to tap in to.

Through our work, I’ve been able to make some very challenging changes in my company that management has resisted for years. Michelle guided me through very clear steps in how to negotiate and make critical changes and how to stand by them.

Thanks to the work we did together, the changes I had only dreamed of and hoped for, have been executed and it has never been more awesome.

Her work literally saved my career, my position with my company and my marriage. Thank you, Michelle.

Working with Michelle was truly an eye opening experience in the best way possible. She was able to guide me through my job search in a new city, improve my resume, and realize my full potential through market research and negotiation.

With her advice I am much more empowered and knowledgeable regarding the entire career searching process. Having an expert to run all my questions by was invaluable and helped me land a great job! I highly recommend working with Michelle.

barbara-bapst This “Enticing Elevator Speeches: How to Increase Your Income 30 Seconds at a Time” course really got me thinking about how old patterns of presenting oneself can keep a person stuck (i.e. If I don’t sell myself, then who will?) The class was well developed & well presented. I loved the creative examples – very helpful!

Barbara Bapst, Wellness Coach/Yoga Teacher Charlotte, NC

superstarcareers-logo1 Michelle Braun worked with me on my Resume Revamp. She took time to discuss in detail my prior work experience and accomplishments that we wanted to highlight on my resume. She made certain that the final product met my expectations, and that I had all formats necessary for on-line job applications and for making revisions as needed.I recommend Michelle to anyone looking for professional assistance developing a resume that will stand out amongst the competition.

Michelle helped our organization with strategic project planning and helped develop key training for an important project. She’s an expert in honing in on priorities and was an incredible thinking partner. Her partnership was crucial to our success.

-Diane Yarborough, HR Director,  Charlotte, NC

superstarcareers-logo1

Michelle and her staff came highly recommended and did not disappoint! I had attempted to create my up-to-date 26-year resume, which was 5 pages long. It failed to convey my brand and lacked brevity. Michelle’s expertise and vision allowed her to create a two-page resume that brands me as a professional, focuses my accomplishments and will definitely create interest. I highly recommend SuperStar Careers to anyone seeking a new career!

-Stewart Taylor, Sales & Marketing Executive,  Charlotte, NC

As a result, I have taken a deeper dive into my past occupations, explored different my different strengths and skills, learned many different strategies to enhance my job search, narrowed down the companies that I would like to work and gained a ton of invaluable tools to use in the future for my career. Michelle really delivers!!!!!

Looking to advance your career? Then you must work with Michelle Braun with Super Star Careers.

As women we sometimes get in our own way when it comes to advancing our careers, but Michelle’s advice is honest and relevant to get the roles and career you want.

I met Michelle through aLean In Charlotte networking group, and right away I knew she was someone I needed to get to know better. With more than 20 years of experience in the corporate world, she gives a perspective that only hiring managers would know. Now as the CEO of Super Star Careers she is able to take her knowledge and experience and share it with those looking to take his or her career to the next level.

 After several webinars with Michelle I was able to make changes to my resume and the way I navigate my job search. As opposed to applying to whatever I job I saw, I am now focused on the right position to get the career I want.

Additionally, her review of my resume has helped me to streamline it in a way that recruiters want to meet with me. Out of all the resources I have tapped into in the past, Michelle’s insight has been the most effective and I recommend her to anyone wanting to take his or her career to the next level.

-Angela Coleman, Accountant,  Charlotte, NC

superstarcareers-logo1 I was laid off from a company where I had worked for almost 10 years, I knew resume writing has trends and Michelle is on top of them all!

Michelle helped me get back into the workforce after almost two years at home with my children. She inspired me to pursue opportunities outside my comfort level.

karen-cynowa I recommend Michelle’s workshop, Nice-n-Easy Networking 101: How to Engage People & Increase Your Income. The course covered multiple dimensions of what is involved in the arena of Networking.There were useful demonstrations with live role-playing on what you should expect when walking into a business-networking gathering. It will make anyone fearless entering into any business atmosphere.Don’t think twice, about signing up. This workshop has true value.

-Karen Cynowa, Real Estate Broker Charlotte, NC

superstarcareers-logo1 The Enticing Elevator Speeches class is a great course for anyone who may need help with selling themselves or their business.

It offers a great deal of perspective and examples on how to have a short, yet compelling conversation, which can significantly improve your life.

Whether you are a new job seeker, a current employee wanting to grow, or an entrepreneur seeking new business, this course offers great tips and techniques in having a truly effective conversation by distinguishing yourself from everyone else.

I don’t have a lot of experience with networking, and I liked that there were many examples of how to do this successfully. I’d definitely recommend this course because it helped me rethink my current elevator speech, and gave better guidelines to greatly improve it.
