When I reached out to Richard, I couldn't believe how helpful he was. He reviewed my resume and suggested some changes. He forwarded my resume to some of his contacts. While I was conducting various interviews, he provided guidance, insight to the companies, and tactics to use while interviewing. His knowledge, calm demeanor, insights, professionalism and compassion are what Richard can provide to an individual who is going through difficult times as I was. Simply awesome service!!!

With graduation looming on the horizon, I was feeling extremely anxious, uncertain, and overwhelmed by the mere thought of my career path after my undergrad. Richard provided me with a wealth of personalized guidance that has proved formative and invaluable, and has helped to steer me towards concrete educational and career goals. Furthermore, he was pleasant, personable, and an overall joy to work with, and as such, I would recommend him to anyone feeling uncertain about their next step in life in a heartbeat.

Richard was a tremendous help to me as a recent graduate of Brock University’s BSM program (Bachelor of Sport Management).

He encouraged me to follow what I truly wanted to do in my career. Richard also recommended a website “teamworkonline” which I knew about before, but it was his urging that encouraged me to continue to use it. This landed me interviews with The Phoenix Suns, Chicago Cubs, Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Hawks, Jacksonville Jaguars, Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment (MLSE), just to name a few. This ultimately led to the job here in Edmonton with the Eskimos. Richard was extremely generous with his time in helping me explore my options, both locally and further away. Even after I got the job and knew I was going to Edmonton, he shared his past experiences with the city, explained their street grid system, and truly went above and beyond. I will be forever grateful for his help with the biggest decision of my life. I wouldn't be where I am today without his help.

I have been out of high school for four years now, and before meeting with Richard felt a bit “stuck” in my career path due to uncertainties about which direction was best for me. It was a great experience to have Richard explain what career fields would complement my personality and which type of work would not. After meeting with him I felt more confident that pursuing a career in the field of Nutrition was the right choice for me. I highly recommend Black Eagle Career Counseling!

Being in high school I had many different paths to explore and decisions to make. Sometimes this was overwhelming. Richard showed me all my options and taught me things about myself that I had never known about my personality as a worker. With Richard's guidance I was able to navigate successfully through this difficult time and focus on my education goals.
