REVIEWS

I recommend Susan of Student to Career to help your child if they are struggling to find their place in the world and what their next steps should be. The testing is complete and detailed. It gives a very accurate picture of the child’s strengths and how they can be enhanced and applied in practical and exciting ways. However, even better than the report is the value that Susan provides. I found her to be dedicated and invested in my son’s progress.  The results we found, we could have come up with by ourselves. I am grateful that we meet Susan and went through this process.

Joanne

Parent, College Junior

Ms. Thrower and the Highlands Ability Battery helped discover many traits that I never knew I had and determine what career path I should follow.

After analyzing my skill sets together, she helped me decide which career path, major, and colleges I should follow if I want to fully utilize my natural talents for my career.  This experience was very helpful for me.

HS Sophomore

I found ‘Student To Career’ invaluable for finding my best career path and landing a job in my field. After college, it’s tough to navigate your career. If not for Susan, the trajectory of my career would never have moved toward long-range advancement potential.

Susan leveraged her deep knowledge and experience in the business world while applying my results from the Highlands Ability Battery (HAB) Test. After we started from the basics: industries, specific firms, and the types of jobs to apply for. Thanks to Susan, the interview request doors opened quickly as she mentored me through the process until I received job offers. I am now confident I’m on the right career track and can look forward to the future!
