Sam, Loyola University


“Thank you for helping me find exactly what I was looking for.

I could not have done it without the constant guidance, invaluable advice, and emotional support from you during these past few months. I appreciate you always thinking of me, and making the extra effort to connect me with people within the marketing industry!”

Victoria, Yale University


“We are so very happy for our son and excited that he will be working in his chosen field and location! We would like to thank the Priority Candidates team that supported our son throughout this process. It was amazing to see how his job search really took off and the interviews started to trickle in after a relatively short time.

Working with you gave him that most valuable tool, confidence, and he started believing he could succeed. We could see his resolve build day by day as he developed more clarity about what he really wanted to do. The prior months were so hard for him and to see him now is heartwarming.

As they say, it takes a village and you were the right people at the right time. It is good to know that he will enter the next stage of his life with Priority Candidates in his back pocket!”

Sam, parent of Syracuse University graduate


“I was officially offered the position! I’m so excited.

Thanks so much for all your help and coaching along the way. I really feel like the coaching and advice in tandem with the interview practice got me to where I am. It’s been a hell of a year and process, but this feels right…

I’ve already started making my list of folks to reach out to that helped me along the way, and you were first.”

You’re the best.”

My job search over the past few years has definitely had its ups and downs and was not the most straightforward path, but I am so grateful for the new skills and perspective I gained. And the end result makes it even better!

You all truly made this process so much easier and made me more confident along the way.”

“Lesley, Cheryl, and Sarah provided the best possible support and guidance during my internship search and application process. You have been my rock through all of this and I really appreciate everything you are doing. I finally feel that I am receiving the well-informed help I have needed, from a team that believes in me and my potential. This has been essential for my success in acquiring my ideal internship for the summer of 2021. While the COVID-19 pandemic limited the scope of employment opportunities worldwide, Priority Candidates turned such an uncertain undertaking into a growth moment and were indispensable in minimizing the stress inherent to the job search. I especially found their team collaboration an incredibly powerful tool that offered consistency throughout the process— the philosophy being conducive to a passion for their work and desire for their clients’ success unparalleled by any other career company. I will forever be grateful for having found such an amazing resource!”

Emily, Brown University


“Thank you so much for all of your help and for the information you shared with me. I’ve found this entire experience to be hugely helpful and so clarifying on finding a path going forward and seeing some real opportunities. I am so grateful for all that I have learned!”

Sally, Haverford College


“Priority Candidates provided me with all-around top-tier career coaching guidance as I navigated a competitive job market post-graduation. They helped ensure I would stand out from the rest, with a laser-targeted LinkedIn profile and resume; they helped source appropriate job opportunities, and thoroughly prepared me for my interviews through multiple sessions.

Immediately after they revamped my resume, I began noticing I was landing more interviews. I was eventually able to land an amazing entry level job at a leading e-commerce company, and I’m thrilled to be working and growing here a year-and-half later! Without the help of Lesley, and the Priority Candidates team, I would not have been able to jumpstart my career and be where I am today.”

Jennifer, New York University


“I just wanted let you know that I have just received an offer for a full-time position.

I am beyond excited to work there and it is the job I’ve always dreamed about! I wanted to thank you for all of the help and guidance along the way; this has been an incredibly difficult process and I could not have done it without your help!”

Sam, Emory University


“Thank you for the level of professionalism and care that you gave our son. I think he learned a lot from his sessions and assignments and has the knowledge and confidence to move forward…”

Nancy, parent of University of Denver graduate


“I can’t thank you enough! You have been a great resource and I value your time and opinions tremendously. I appreciate you and all of your help!”

Jack, University of Wisconsin


“It’s such a very difficult transition, regardless of the school one is coming from. You helped my three kids so much and I’m very grateful. The universities don’t seem to prepare them for this challenge.”

Amanda, parent of Brown University, University of Southern California, and University of Chicago graduates


“As the mother of a recent college graduate, I was absolutely thrilled with Priority Candidates! Lesley was consistently smart and savvy, as well as professional and supportive to both my son and me every step of the way! I witnessed firsthand how they carefully and innovatively guided my son through the entire job application process - from research, to resume building, to submitting applications, to the interview process and follow-up - and I was incredibly impressed by the transformation of a hard-working, fun loving college student into an accomplished, professional young man!

I am very happy to say that my son was offered a coveted post graduate position in sports, the field of his choice, (before he finished school), and I am convinced that this would not have happened if we had not engaged Priority Candidates to help him navigate the process. Lesley was absolutely fantastic, instilled confidence, and taught him life-long job search skills and strategies that were instrumental in his success. I recommend them wholeheartedly!”

Gerry, parent of Syracuse University graduate


“As I come up on my first day at the new job, I wanted to thank you for all of the help you gave over the last 10 months. We, together, went through one of the craziest years possible, and it means a lot that you saw me through to the end of it.”

Paul, New York University


“Even before beginning a search for a summer internship, I felt the stress and pressure of finding the perfect fit. The world of internship applications can be incredibly intimidating and anxiety-inducing. I could not have been more relieved and excited to have found Priority Candidates. They provided an exceptionally personal and customized experience that not only helped me get a fantastic internship offer but also taught me essential skills that will last a lifetime.

Working with a personal consultant, going through a quick and efficient career assessment process, I was able to determine which field of work aligned with me — that I would most enjoy and excel at. They then provided me with a personalized list of companies that would benefit from my specific interests and skillset.

The Priority Candidates team and I worked together to make sure that my applications were in the best shape and that my interviews would go as smoothly as possible. As a result, the stress of a job application is incredibly reduced as you feel calm, cool, and collected throughout the application process knowing that the team at Priority Candidates have your back and will rigorously work until you receive a great offer.”

James, Columbia University


“We are truly grateful for everything you did to help our daughter. This process has made her mature and become more independent. We are so proud of her. She is on Cloud 9. This job has been her dream for years. We all appreciate everything you and your team did to help prepare her and find this position.”

Samantha, parent of Chapman University graduate


“Thank you so much for all of your help these last few months! It has been much appreciated and I definitely wouldn’t be here without you all!”

Amy, Yale University


“Even before beginning a search for a summer internship or job, students feel the stress and pressure of finding the perfect fit for them. The world of internship applications can be incredibly intimidating and anxiety-inducing as students have likely not been prepared for the sometimes difficult and confusing process of an internship search. Further, as the COVID-19 crisis hit, students found themselves in an even more difficult spot as companies themselves had to change their application process to fit the new world of remote work.

As one of these anxious students myself, I could not have been more relieved and excited to have found the consultants at Priority Candidates who helped guide me through the complicated world of job searches. They provided an exceptionally personal and customized experience that not only helped me get a fantastic internship offer but also taught me essential skills that will last a lifetime. Firstly, by working with a personal consultant and through a quick and efficient testing career assessment process, I was able to determine exactly which field of work aligned with me and that I would most enjoy and excel at. They then provided me with a personalized list of companies that would benefit from my specific interests and skillset.

Finally, the consultants and I worked together to make sure that my applications were in the best shape and that my interviews would go as smoothly as possible. As a result, the stress of a job application is incredibly reduced as you feel calm, cool, and collected throughout the application process knowing that the consultants at early-stage careers have your back and will rigorously work until you receive a great offer. Additionally, I learned essential skills and professional behavior that will stick with me for years to come. I could not be more grateful and happy to have worked with Priority Candidates and would easily recommend them to anyone who is hoping to not only find a great internship but also learn life-long lessons along the way! Thank you!!!!”
