The session with Chaperone was amazing! I’ve got a lot of insights and I feel like I know more about myself and what I want to do in life! Absolutely mind blown! Thank you so much!
I had two sessions with Chaperone, one to prepare a competitive CV able to make me stand out, and another to prepare for an interview. Both sessions went really well, with the advice being clear and very useful, with an emphasis on the small things which ultimately made a big difference.
My session was very challenging and clarifying. The consultant was a very intelligent and open minded specialist and defied me to push my limits while understanding my reality, and helped me to organize my thoughts regarding my doubts, empowering me to make a clear and fundamented decision. I highly recommend Chaperone.
