“CCE Quick Questions is a great resource that I will be sure to use again. In the ten minutes I was there, I received efficient service and helpful advice. It took fewer than 15 minutes of my day to pop in and out of there, but it made a huge impact on the interview I was preparing for.”

“Great overall experience. Was really helpful to have professional eyes look over my resume. Left with a few new ideas that will help tighten up my credentials. Thanks!”

“Talking over my thoughts for even a few minutes helped to replace my stress with useful information and clear, actionable steps. I feel ready now and have all my next steps.”

“My counselor was absolutely amazing. She took her time to answer my questions, it did not feel rushed at all. She made sure I felt comfortable and was able to help me figure out what I needed to get from my session.”
