What People are Saying
“I was pleased to see that Margaret wrote a testimonial. She should update it, though. She was accepted by every graduate program to which she applied except one. The last is extremely selective: 12 spots for 350 applicants. They encouraged her to apply to their masters program, which offered her a place. She has decided on [name of university withheld] and is very excited about the program, the campus, and the community. Thank you again for your help with her personal statement!”
“Working with Heidi was a real pleasure! It was crucial for me to work with someone who could help me along every step of my application process to four highly competitive graduate programs for mid-career professionals. As a former admissions officer, she gave me strategic insights and accordingly coached me in order to set forth the aspects of my personal life and professional experience that could make my career goals and purpose statement outstanding and appealing to the eyes of the admissions committee. Thus far I have been admitted to my top choice. I am very grateful to Heidi for understanding how important these applications were for me and for how committed she was to assisting me even in the middle of the holidays. I strongly recommend her!”
“Heidi has transformed my writing. Specifically, she helped me with applications for summer research fellowships. The impact she made on my applications was huge, and for proof, I got accepted into all of the ones she helped me with! With her editing, I became a competitive applicant as my applications were much stronger, clearer, and resolute. She helped me make the points that I was trying to convey, and my voice shined through. Let your hard work be expressed to the degree that it deserves! Tell your friends too!”
“Heidi was kind, patient, flexible, and professional. She did a marvelous job on my resume and letter of interest for my fellowship application. I actually learned how to write a letter of interest from Heidi. Her feedback was very helpful and she has always tried her best to accommodate me. My revised resume and letter of interest is now focused, professional, and tailored for the competitive fellowship for which I’m applying.”
“Thank you so much for all your help. I feel so much more confident in my personal statement because of your advisement. I was honestly very stressed about the quality of my application. Now, I am more positive about getting in the graduate school of my choice. Thank you again for your help.”
“I recently produced an ebook and sought Heidi’s expert help to edit it and give me feedback about it. Working with her was a fantastic experience! She is so personable and human; you can see a genuine desire to support you, guide you, and help you succeed through her actions and words.
Her editing reflects that humanity! My ebook came back full of personal and encouraging comments beyond the editing scope and pointed to possibilities for me to choose, besides technical explanations and resources to understand the writing processes aspect and the grammar behind the issue.
It was not a process limited to the here and now, but one that encouraged self-development and learning for sustainable change that will improve my writing in future projects.
I recommend her services! She is the best!”
“Looking for a book editor you can trust? Someone with integrity and a strong work ethic? Someone who honors your voice and experience/expertise, while helping you create quality written work that achieves its goals? If so, I recommend Heidi Scott Giusto, Ph.D.”
“I’ve worked with Heidi Giusto on five books (so far). She’s an incredibly versatile editor capable of “copy editing” as well as the incredibly difficult “developmental editing.” I have written more than two dozen books and I can say that she is the best book editor I have ever worked with and I would recommend her without hesitation.”
“We partnered with Heidi Giusto of Career Path Writing Solutions to offer a fresh perspective on our company’s website. From our messaging to clients and candidates through to our blog posts, Heidi did an outstanding job of helping us fine tune our message and our content. I particularly liked Heidi’s approach of review, suggest, and collaborate. She first took the time to understand our needs and objectives. Then, she reviewed our existing content with an exceptional level of detail, made suggested edits, and offered different paths to consider. Most of all, Heidi took the time to listen to what we were trying to verbally espouse to our audiences and helped us to paint a picture and tell a story, in words.”
“I hired Heidi to teach a series of writing workshops to a highly international group of engineering students at Duke. She was a dream to work with! She’s among the most organized people I know. She provided relevant content, customized her materials for our group, and constantly sought ways to improve her sessions and drive efficiencies. She delivered more than was promised and was very well received by our student population. I would be delighted to hire Heidi again and it’s a pleasure to recommend her.”
“I cannot recommend Dr. Giusto highly enough – she is the epitome of professional, highly effective at any task she undertakes, and will take any meeting, presentation, or consultation to the next level – producing a polished, valuable product for you or your organization. If you want an exceptional return on your investment, you are in the right place – Dr. Giusto and Career Writing Path Solutions will provide customized solutions to meet you needs.”
“An Aerospace Member Association organization I worked for was hosting a 3000+ attendee conference. I was looking for someone who was an expert in resume building and professional development – she fit both bills. Heidi was pleasant to speak to, insightful, smart and funny … I hit the jackpot! We had unprecedented enrollment in each Leadership Development course. She had presented in a way that was easy to grasp, take hold, and put practices into action. I was grateful for her partnership and knowledge in helping me build something that was not only educational, but also meaningful. I trust and believe in Heidi and would absolutely hire her again to present, lead a course or to help me personally.”
“I reached out to Career Path Writing Solutions to provide a workshop that early and mid career participants would find useful. I had a few discussions with Heidi in which we talked about the audience, the focus of the workshop, and how ensure that participants get direct feedback on ways to improve their resume. Heidi was able to make a customized workshop as well as a personalized resume review and feedback for over half of the participants. The workshop was engaging and left many of the participants with an updated resume that effectively captured their accomplishments and highlighted their strengths. Several of the participants followed-up with Heidi to get more in depth 1-on-1 resume and professional development advice.”
“Dr. Giusto is a fantastic speaker and an insightful career counselor! I work at North Carolina State University with various leadership programs, and Dr. Giusto has worked with two of these groups. The first one involved a group of professionals who wanted more time with Dr. Giusto given her guidance regarding etiquette and skills for business communications. They told me afterwards that they got A LOT out of her session and wished we had scheduled a longer session with her! Dr. Giusto also served as a career counselor for a group of Ph.D. students who participated in a leadership program that I manage. They, too, were grateful for her insights and assistance with their CVs, cover letters and career searches. I look forward to a continued working relationship with Dr. Giusto as she is very knowledgeable, a stellar professional and a wonderful person who truly works to help and support those who seek her services.”
“Dr. Heidi Giusto has provided professional development and career coaching services to NC State University’s Global Luxury and Management program for the past year. Despite the complexity of our program, student population and industry, Dr. Giusto was undeterred. She provided invaluable guidance to our students in writing and developing luxury oriented resumes, cover letters and reference lists and to our program in strategizing and packaging completed resumes into a book that reflects our program and the luxury industry. Dr. Giusto is a pleasure to work with and continues to help our program develop a strategic framework for addressing the unique needs of our students and prospective employers.”
