Arlene was incredibly helpful in highlighting my core capabilities and broadening my resume to better reflect my desired path. She is empowering and provides constructive comments. I am happy to have Arlene in my back pocket when questions or need for advice arise throughout the job hunt!

Amanda S., Publicist

I had the privilege of benefiting from individualized coaching sessions from Arlene Newman and learning from her guidance, expertise, and coaching. A close friend recommended Arlene with glowing reviews about her and her business' reputation, and from my initial conversation with Arlene, it was evident how passionate she is about what she does and her desire and willingness to help you meet your goals!

Of note, the coaching sessions are very tailored to fit the individual. I came to Arlene with a specific aim, needing assistance on how to broaden and communicate my skill set and background in government affairs to a career more applicable to universal global business and industries beyond government affairs; Arlene was very perceptive and provided me the tools and resources necessary to feel confident about how to move forward and best approach the job search, networking, and interviewing process. Prior to working with Arlene, I felt very 'stuck' in my current outlook on career opportunities and she was so creative in helping me think outside the box, which was a key turning point in my experience and shaped my search going forward.

Arlene really has a natural gift for what she does, and having benefited from working with Career Bound Success and seeing the impact it made, I would highly recommend Career Bound Success to individuals looking to progress and see results in any stage of a career or interview process. It was such a positive experience and it goes without saying, Arlene is a delight to be with, always encouraging, positive!

Catherine R., Global Business Program & Project Management

Arlene is a fantastic career coach! She provides excellent guidance on interview preparation and resume improvement. Her interview strategies proved to be extremely effective during a difficult job search. I would highly recommend Arlene's services. 

Michelle D., Market Research Professional

Arlene was a very significant help in my process of job searching. Having just graduated from college, I had never been on a formal interview before or had much experience writing cover letters and a resume. After applying for months and only getting a few requests for interviews, I came to Arlene, who completely turned my resume around. After that, I was receiving interview requests almost every day. After prepping me for interviews, I went from being very timid and apprehensive to feeling comfortable interviewing with five or six people at a time, which is what I had to do for the job I landed now. Her detailed and personalized suggestions and instruction made our sessions invaluable and I would recommend Arlene to anyone who is looking for a job, internship, or just to further improve their personal brand and network.

Madeline M., Healthcare Industry

Arlene has been a truly amazing mentor and coach to me. I'm so glad to have had her guidance and support through this challenging process. During my senior year in college, I began searching for a full-time position for the future. Arlene helped me revise my resume to make it as strong as possible. She worked with me to ensure that all my strengths were communicated and together, we created a winning resume. Next she helped me strategize my search. With her guidance, I felt the stress of the job search process melt away because I knew I had a solid plan with action steps and goals.

When I began scheduling interviews, Arlene helped me by doing mock interviews with me and we created clever and well thought out responses to critical interview questions. It took the edge off my nerves and the more I prepped with Arlene, the more confidence I felt. Arlene's coaching was critical to my success and searching for a very short amount of time, I received an amazing opportunity from Macy's, one of the top retail companies in the country!

Her passion to help others is clearly apparent in her efforts and her energy is contagious! I would highly recommend her to any professional seeking to take their career to the next level.

Nuzhat S., Marketing

I met Arlene about two years ago during a career consultant seminar at Baurch College. Recently, when I needed to update my resume, I contacted Arlene for her expertise and guidance. Arlene's guidance and coaching were critical as I have not been in the job market for a number of years. She was very encouraging and supportive, and her advice and coaching provided me with a professional as welled improved resume - positioning my experience, knowledge and competencies in ways that I did not feel qualified to do myself. Arlene was incredibly helpful in emphasizing my core capabilities and broadening my resume to better reflect my desired path. I find her to be very empowering and provides constructive comments. Thanks Arlene for all your help.

Althea C., Human Resources

Arlene has a tremendous understanding of the employment marketplace for today's creatives. My resume needed tweaking, and she helped me create a re-vamped and vastly improved resume. She also is a great coach when it comes to prepping for the interview.

I truly believe that her assistance in those two arenas very much assisted me in landing the job I have now. She is top notch!

She was a trusted resource whom I know I can always rely on.

Isabella N., Medicine

I have had the pleasure of working with Arlene two times, and she truly an amazing Human Resources Professional and Career Coach. As her intern at The Leading Hotels of the World, she provided me with great exposure to HR operations in a corporate office, and she took the time to ensure that I was learning and doing meaningful work. She helped me find my passion for HR.

I worked with her again as her client at Career Bound Success, and her expertise helped me develop a strong resume and strengthen my networking and interview skills. I believe my work with her helped give me the confidence that I needed to be successful in job interviews and switch from hotel operations to HR. I received my current job offer one month after my sessions with her!

Arlene is dedicated, caring, and passionate. She truly wants to help her clients achieve their goals and be successful. I would recommend Arlene to anyone looking for a career coach. I would gladly work with her in the future!

Rachelle B., Hospitality

Arlene is an excellent career coach. She is so attentive and truly cares about the needs of her client. I recently reached out to her for assistance with the job search and I am so glad I did. Arlene's strategies for resume preparation, self-pitching, networking and interviewing are exceptionally effective. When an opportunity presented itself, Arlene was there for me from start to finish. Even while on vacation, Arlene made herself available to me to provide useful pointers. When I first contacted Arlene, I had a less than positive outlook on potential career opportunities. During our initial meeting, Arlene stated that she wanted to help me turn my negatives into positives and this is exactly what she did.

Now I am starting a brand new career opportunity, satisfied, with a positive outlook and a hope for endless possibilities in my new role and I arrived at this new place through the positive encouragement, support and guidance of Arlene Newman, my career coach.

Kim H., Director, Revenue Management - Hospitality Corporation

Arlene Newman is a wonderful career coach! Her professional and comforting demeanor helped my daughter greatly in preparing for the job market upon graduating from college. As a result of Arlene's changes to the resume, her mock interviews, and her constructive comments, my daughter had the confidence that was needed to succeed throughout the entire process! The net effect was that the first series of interviews she was called for landed her the position with Ideeli! She was then called from other retail organizations and did equally as well!

Arlene made my daughter feel so good about herself that she was able to put her best foot forward and land the job! I highly recommend Arlene to anyone looking to obtain a position and or move forward with their career!

Marcia A., Real Estate Sales Associate

There is no greater career coach than Arlene Newman! Arlene was a tremendous help to me as I resolved to stop walking out of interviews unsatisfied with my performance. I met with Arlene who immediately helped me to define my goals, outline my strengths and helped me to redevelop my resume. Arlene took the time to talk through the points of my resume, pull out key accomplishments and crystallize who I was as a professional. It was a relief to have someone on my side to work with through the job search process. In conducting a mock interview, Arlene helped to boost my confidence and sort through challenging questions.

I have secured a new position and I am eternally grateful to Arlene, as I know it was our work together that was instrumental to my success! I highly recommend Arlene as a career coach!

After all, I work in Human Capital Management and interview people all the time. I know how you should conduct yourself and what employers are looking for in an interview. The reality is, I had been working in a very challenging situation, and really needed to jumpstart my job search, and most importantly really needed a career coach with a strong and gentle hand to guide me through this process.

Benjamin S., International Marketing Manager

I first met Arlene as an intern at The Leading Hotels of the World, two years ago. Ever since then, her guidance and wisdom helped me develop both professionally and individually. With Arlene's tremendous amount of help and insight, I was able to secure intern positions at a prestigious financial services firm, a renowned medical college and luxury hotel. For each internship opportunity, Arlene thoroughly reviewed my resume and cover letter. She gave great recommendations and critiques and made sure that both the resume and cover letter aligned with each job description. Before any interviews, Arlene conducted mock interviews that prepared me for critical questions and gave me confidence. Above all, Arlene is exceptional because she cares greatly about her clients' success and well-being. It truly is a privilege to have a chance to work with someone like Arlene!

MiJi K., Human Resources - Financial Services

I cannot thank Arlene Newman enough for all the wonderful work she has done for me. I was an intern at Leading Hotels of the World on my last semester of college unsure of where my career was going to take me. I went to Arlene hoping that she could guide me in the right direction and that she did! She reviewed my resume and gave me feedback on how to enhance it, we did mock interviews, which gave me much more confidence to do well on the actual interview, and she listened to my interests and goals to help me narrow down the right position for me within the hospitality industry. I couldn't have asked for such great advice and assistance. And as if that wasn't enough, she also connected me with my first job out of college in a hotel!

Thank you, Arlene, for all of your dedication, sincerity and attention to detail. You are truly amazing at what you do and anyone would be privileged to work with you.

Naomie B., Guest Services, NYC 5-Star Hotel

Arlene demonstrates not only expert knowledge in her field and a genuine concern for the well-being of her clients, but also tremendous versatility. Although her primary experience is within the fields of business, human resources, marketing, and management, I came to her when I needed coaching and preparation for medical school interviews. After reviewing interview questions, Arlene was able to accurately pinpoint numerous topics related to medicine that might come up in the interviews, and she provided essential support as we worked through the issues together. I have since successfully interviewed and been accepted to 4 medical schools, and am extremely grateful for Arlene's resourcefulness and dedication.

Sam K., Georgetown Medical School

Arlene Newman has been a tremendous influence in my life. I first met Ms. Newman at The Leading Hotels of the World, where I was interviewed by her. Once I was hired for the receptionist position, she continuously helped me grow as an individual and employee. Ms. Newman helped me obtain an internship that added to my growth by allowing me to explore different departments of the company. Part of the internship program, that Ms. Newman created, consisted of bi-weekly meetings with other interns, that allowed us to discuss our growth, ideas, and daily hospitality functions within our individual roles with department leaders. For each meeting, we would have a different department head that would discuss their job title and what they do for the company. Graduation was approaching quickly, and at the time I was working part-time for the company. Considering we were in a recession and it wasn't very easy for a college graduate to get a job, I asked Ms. Newman for assistance in finding a job in the hospitality industry.

Arlene Newman assisted me with preparing for an interview within the New York Helmsley Hotel. She guided me through the interviewing process, along with updating my resume. With her countless help and support, I was able to attain the position as a front desk coordinator.

Laura K., Coordinator - Hospitality

I had the pleasure of meeting Arlene during my master's degree program. I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to intern at The Leading Hotels of the World, under Arlene's supervision. My internship was a great learning experience and opened so many doors. Arlene is truly passionate about working with students and recent graduates to help them develop professionally. Over the years, Arlene has continued to be an invaluable resource for me. I highly recommend her and I look forward to working with her again in the future.

Les-Ann W., Account Manager - Travel Management

I had the pleasure of working with Arlene Newman at The Leading Hotels of the World. I worked with Arlene in the Human Resources Department as an intern during college and following the end of my internship, Arlene helped me find a job in my field of interest. Arlene provided guidance, worked with me on my resume and interviewing skills and as a result, I felt prepared and confident for my interviews.

Thanks to Arlene, I landed my first job after college graduation at an International Cosmetic Firm! When looking for a new career opportunity, Arlene again assisted me in preparing for a new job search and landing a position as Global Talent Associate!

During the time that Arlene and I worked together, she provided me continuous support. Arlene helped guide my personal growth and expand my career potential by providing me with new opportunities in my position. Arlene has been a great mentor and has helped me to embody more confidence in myself.
