I have an extensive background working on a wide variety of career topics including career direction, job search and applications and interviews. I have listed the most popular topics here but, if you are interested in a career topic that you don't see listed her, please feel free to ask!

All of the packages below can be provided as workshops (groups of 10 or more) or individual, private appointments. I am available selected daytime and evening hours and appointments can be conducted in person or remotely.

Career Topics

Meds 101
For the keeners (a.k.a. the wise people) who are thinking about medical school in the future. Learn how to start preparing today to increase
your chances of success down the road. (1-hour workshop)

Private appointments - many applicants tend to use approximately 1 hour of individual assistance on this topic including pre-requisites, application overview, MCAT planning, strategic volunteering, and information interviews.

Applying to Meds
For those applying this year or soon (I can see the excitement and nervousness from here!) Detailed information and guidance on the application pieces including advice on where to get information to assess your GPA/MCAT scores; writing personal statements; autobiographical sketch; references. (2-hour workshop)

Private appointments - many applicants tend to use 3-5 hours for strategy and reference advice, plus review of autobiographical sketch/CV and personal statements/essays/short answers.

Medical School Interviews
Learn about and prepare for icky/nasty/scary medical school questions as well as the different types of interview formats including the fabulous MMI, panel, and one-to-one. (2-hour workshop)

Private appointments - many applicants tend to use 3 hours for strategy advice along with a couple of mock interviews with feedback.


Applying to Residency
Still recovering from the trauma of applying to get into medical school? Let me help you survive and thrive during the CaRMS match. Information and one-to-one assistance with application strategy (how many? which specialties?), personal letters, CVs, CaRMS form, references. (2 hour workshop)

Private appointments - many applicants use up to 4 hours for strategy advice and review of CV, CaRMS form and personal letters.

Residency Interviews
While you're travelling around the country visting programs, I can help you feel calmer about the conversations you'll have once you finally arrive at your destination. Learn about what questions to expect, how to prepare for them, how to connect authentically with programs that aren't your first choice, how to deal with impertinent or illegal questions, and learn from the common concerns of many medical students. (2-hour workshop)

Private appointments - many applicants spend approximately 2-4 hours with me working on interview strategies and doing a couple of mock interviews and getting feedback.

Terms of Service

What I do is an investment in your future, so it's important that you understand how I work. I will not teach you sneaky tricks to get into medical school or residency or help you mislead yourself or employers. I will, however, use my experience with hiring and admissions to assist you to understand the other sides of the equation you're facing. I will also help you to harness your potential so that you can portray yourself authentically but positively.

Due to conflict of interest, Career Cupid does not work with current Queen's University students.
If there is a conflict of interest with my other work, I will relay that to you as soon as I become aware of it but it may necessitate that we terminate our relationship (with you receiving the balance of your payment back, of course).
