“Karen has been writing a monthly career column for Long Island Business News since 2010 and it is a valued addition to our print and online product. Her expertise and passion for the subject comes through in her writing and it is with a very light hand that I edit her work.

I have come to know Karen fairly well over the last couple of years and appreciate her insight, intelligence and compassion. She is committed to helping job seekers land in the career for which they are best-suited. Her warm and approachable demeanor must surely play well with clients.

One of the things I appreciate most about Karen is her curiosity. She is always eager to learn about others' careers and companies, and she always looks for ways to serve her clients more fully. I look forward to a long and productive professional friendship with Karen and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of career refocusing.”

    “I became unemployed back in November 2010 after an 18 yr career with a company. In December 2010 I contacted Karen and hired Karen-Careervision to assist me in my new job search.

From day one it was a pleasure to work with Karen. Karen is a fantastic person, very friendly, very helpful, extremely knowledgeable, understanding and a great career counselor. She always puts her clients first.

I am happy to say I have returned to work and my many thanks to Karen ! I would highly recommend Karen/Careervision for any job related services, i.e Resume, Cover Letters, Interviewing techniques, job search, career change guidance etc. When you hire Careervision you are getting the best!.”

  My career counseling sessions with Karen McKenna are responsible for my pursuit of both a new career and independent entrepreneurial ventures.

Unlike previous career counselors I'd met who gave me only "Here's how you search for a job online" and "cookie cutter" advice that really wasn't a match for me, Karen really listened to me and almost immediately
intuited the type of approach that would work for me.

She proposed possibilities rather than limitations, which inspired me, and she encouraged me to go back to school to pursue a new career as well as to turn a serious hobby into a real business. I would highly recommend her services to anyone who is facing a job or career transition.”

  “Karen has gone way above the call of duty. She is a person who cares deeply about people and has the ability and skills to get the job done from beginning to end.

Karen's professionalism makes you feel that you are part of a team. She understands the business environment and has shown nothing but a positive and professional approach when it comes to helping people.

I highly recommend Karen her approach and understanding go far beyond what I could ever imagine. By far the best career counselor out there.”

  For the 1st time in my working life, I needed a Career Consultant and did I hit the jackpot with Karen. Karen is such a caring professional. She helped me navigate the unemployment landscape.

Karen gave me direction and confidence. She was always available when I had questions and concerns and I always left our meetings feeling really good about my future. Without Karen's help, I would not have successfully transitioned back into the working world as quickly as I did.”

    “I would suggest everyone take advantage of career counseling. My job was eliminated in November 2008; this is when I met Karen McKenna. At first I was skeptical about career counseling, but I am so glad I took advantage of it.

Karen was not only a valuable coach/advisor, teaching me new tools and skills to conduct a job search, but she was also a cheerleader and was always there even when I just needed to vent.

I was unemployed during one of the most challenging job markets but I can honestly say working with these new tools and skills, learned from Karen, help me land a job.”
