“In this day and age, it’s hard to find a company you can trust. Virtual HR Masters was recommended to me by a friend, and now I know why – the quality of service I received was outstanding. Keep up the good work!”
I found Angela to be an extremly professional career coach. Having moved to Boston from the UK, with no professional network to rely on, Angela worked with me to develop a plan on how best to find a job in a new country.
Under her direction I was able to clarify my priorities; confirm exactly what kind of role, sector and location I was looking for. Very shortly afterwards I was offered two great jobs in the same week!!
Angela is a natural communicator with a very positive outlook. It's a pleasure to recommend her!”

“My wife and I would like to give our highest recommendation to Angela Blackledge as a career coach. When our daughter was trying to clarify her goals and make a transition from graduate school to a teaching career, Angela put her in touch with some of her extensive contacts in our daughter's field. She also made specific and very useful suggestions about interview techniques that turned initial interviews into invitations from schools for more extensive conversations. The process is still underway at this writing, but our daughter is confident she will receive a job offer. Angela was warm, knowledgeable, and completely professional. We're very grateful and again, can't recommend her highly enough.”
