Don't Take Our Word For It

Ray helped me realize my full potential. He showed me how I process information and what I'm naturally good at. You can tell that he loves what he does and it shows in how he helps people.


Ray is an excellent career coach. Within 4 months of working together, he was able to help me gain the clarity that for years I struggled to find on my own regarding the next steps in my career!


The degree I was pursuing was too broad and Ray helped me to narrow down my focus and place me on the right path - one that took into account my talents and interests.


Ray Giese is a talented career coach. His feedback is sincere, concise and smart. He genuinely cares about your career aspirations and guides you on the path to success. I highly recommend Ray
