Tracy Brisson and members of The Opportunities Project Meetup“Tracy’s career advice was very helpful!”- Larissa, Research and Psychology

“Tracy is a great career coach. I have attended three of her NYC workshops  and learned a lot about successful job searching and networking from them. She gave me great tips from everything career-related, from successful interviewing tips, ‘elevator pitching’ tips, and effective resume writing. I also learned a lot of useful information about LinkedIn, especially about how to use all the features for free. She also helped me network with important people at a recent event I attended. Finally, she recommends great books that would help you achieve your professional, as well as personal goals.  She’s definitely the real deal.”- Alex, Communications

Speaking

“I recently worked with Tracy to develop and deliver a career support pilot for corps members and young alumni of Teach For America. Tracy directly delivered a session to about 250 audience members, and was also instrumental in helping to develop a series of follow-up events and resources, all of which have garnered rave reviews from participants.

From the moment I reached out to Tracy, she was incredibly responsive – in saying this I mean that she was both extremely timely and clear in communication AND that she truly listened to and understood our needs. Tracy developed a highly customized presentation for our large-group session, and has also continually plugged in with other resources and advice. Tracy is particularly effective at specifically understanding what young professionals need to manage their careers and be successful. She is able to talk about career management topics both broadly and in depth, and is especially savvy at utilizing social media to share her knowledge. I personally check out The Opportunities Project on a regular basis!”- Cara, Teach for America

She engaged the audience, shared innovative ideas for pursuing jobs, and provided useful feedback to participants. As a result, the session was incredibly well-received and we plan to have her work with other groups of Fellows. I highly recommend Tracy. She is deeply committed to coaching and supporting individuals as they seek job and has the expertise to help them.”- Audra, Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation
