" I'd like to personally thank Mrs Carmen Peter for the very valuable professional coaching and support she provided me during the Auditor AD7 Competition I underwent in 2016. Mrs Peter is an highly qualified and experienced professional coach, with broad expertise and mastery in both the Private and Public/EU context. Understanding how the different contexts operates, she effectively coached me on how I should have prepared my CV and structured the Talent Screener to best address the requirements and criteria of the Competition. She also supported me for the Assessment Center helping me understand the overall framework and how to best demonstrates my soft skills and unique personality. As result, I successfully passed the Competition and entered the Reserve List.

Mrs. Peter has been equally important for the preparation of my job interviews with both the Recruiting Panel and the Director General enabling me perform at my best and successfully get offered the new position.

I highly recommend Mrs. Peter to anyone who wish to start a new career journey in the EU as well as to those who wish to continue to professionally grow and expand their own self-awareness and confidence, both in the public and private sector. The return of the investment is guaranteed! "

"First and foremost I would like to wholeheartedly thank Ms Peter for the serious, direct and effective manner she carries out both her individual coaching and also assessment centre simulations. I managed to attend both types of training and each had their own distinct yet related effect on the way I approached the assessment centre. The methods presented by Ms Peter are unique in their way as they take a completely different route to tackling the day at the assessment centre, which at a first glance is quite daunting. On the day, as tense as one might be, you feel that the approaches taken are very adequate and had it been otherwise the same result might not have been guaranteed. Thanks Ms Peter, I am grateful for your role in my success."
