As an undergraduate, fearful of the outside world and the daunting career choices, Janet’s advice was always reassuring and provided me with both direction and confidence in my abilities. I cannot recommend a consultation with Janet more to a budding young professional as the few meetings I had with her changed my career outlook indefinitely.

I have nothing but glowing things to say about Janet. Her skills and expertise in career counseling are truly invaluable. She was an incredible resource, sounding board, and guide during my recent job search. She had great tips for everything from resume writing and design to interviewing and correspondence. I really appreciated her ability to be a source of sanity and knowledge through an otherwise chaotic and stressful time. I feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her and will continue to seek her counsel in the future.

Janet is a fantastic career consultant, and she was a stellar source of support during my time with Springboard. I found her to be an excellent listener. Janet was also quick to offer sound practical recommendations, ranging from marketing tips to better sell my skills online for potential employers to insightful strategies to enhance my responses to behavioral interview questions. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Janet, and I always left our conversations feeling encouraged, helped, and better prepared for strategizing my job search and, ultimately, my career.

Janet was a guiding light for me through every single large and small question I had about setting up my career. I came to her with questions with some of the most obscure and situational questions, and she never once failed to provide a graceful and enlightening answer. She guided me through making my resume more competitive, selling my weaknesses during an interview, negotiating salary, deciding which job offer would suit me best, and general life advice. For me and many other... students, she was a crutch for all career-related advice.

Among students, she is well-known as a great resource to prepare students to succeed at career fairs, networking events, interviews and really any professional situation. She also goes above and beyond, for example, she sent out her research on companies attending an upcoming career fair in order to give students a starting point for their own research. If you’re looking for someone who goes out of his/her way to make your clients feel comfortable and to offer guidance or mentorship based on his/her knowledge, Janet has proven that she has the organization, commitment and drive to make it happen.

Janet Matta is smart, reliable and a consistent voice in the world of career development working with young adults in particular. I can always count on Janet for sage and balanced advice. She is a highly competent career advisor and her love for the work is reflected in her dedication and service with students. These qualities, combined with her passion and involvement in helping to balance inequities in vocation as it relates to race and class, make Janet a role model for me as well as colleagues I have spoken with who have also benefited from her dedication and professionalism.
Recently, Janet received one of our highest ratings for a guest speaker at our College Internship Workshop. Our college students were engaged and had fun while learning valuable tools about conducting a strong internship search that aligns with their interests, values and strengths. Needless to say, Janet is one of Rainier Scholars strongest partners in career services.
