Ellen Reeves has entered the depths of young job-seekers’ minds, answering the questions most are afraid to put into words. If people
are smart enough to listen to her, I may have fewer bloopers to add to my collection from interviews-gone-bad!

I indeed learnt so much from your very precise, effective, and hugely informative session that I can't help repeating it over and over again.

Your talk was everything our Career Services Office should do (but didn’t).

I will never forget your advice or your energy.

We began our Tuesday with Ellen Reeves. She is a wealth of sarcasm and fabulous job advice — she is in charge of helping us edit our bios and résumés, building "unassailable" job application materials.

She advised us to be Lily Bart from Edith Wharton’s House of Mirth. Lily Bart knew how to turn her impulses into intent. I can’t tell you how happy I was to hear an Edith Wharton reference before 10 AM.

I’m a huge fan of your book, “Can I Wear My Nose Ring to the Interview” and I refer to it regularly in my work. Thank you for a great presentation full of humor, real life examples and concrete doable action suggestions everyone can do…I hope you plan another book soon!

Today’s seminar was awesome. Your ability to deliver valuable nuggets and guidance to your audiences in

of fresh air.

All of my staff attended your session and raved about it afterward. Our staff appreciated the great advice you had to offer and also enjoyed hearing a different perspective on career development.

I got more invaluable tips from you in four hours than in four years of visiting the college career services office. I can’t wait to see your book.

I feel much more confident and prepared to deal with the job-searching process.

Your help was invaluable and it has definitely made me feel less nervous about the job search.

The most helpful part was when you taught us to answer tricky interview questions without lying or being pretentious.

The advice you gave was so helpful about things I never really gave much thought to before.
Columbia Publishing Course Student
Constructive criticism…frank and funny…Great advice… practical…straightforward, funny, insightful.

“The down-and-dirtier your job experience,” she said, “The more I like you. If people trust you with their kids and dogs, I can trust you to transport a manuscript on the subway.”

She also quoted Twain: “Don’t write ’the lady screamed’ — bring her out and let her scream.” We were instructed to show that we were organized by citing an example of redoing a company’s filing system, rather than describing ourselves as “organized.”

Reeves is hysterically funny; I highly recommend her  book on job-hunting, interviewing and résumés. Beyond all of the impressive experience she has in the field, she did a project in graduate school on irony and sarcasm. You have to buy the book of anyone who has that sort
of qualification.
