Consultation Services

Michelle Allen worked for five different State agencies and was on-loan to the governor’s office during her tenure with the State. In addition to teaching classes and conducting workshops for client groups, she provides two types of customized consultation services for those seeking employment with the State. Both consultation services include a comprehensive review and evaluation of your experience and education in order to direct you to the exams and the jobs that go with them. 




Why Hire Michelle?

Michelle offers the following Consultation Services

In person: You will meet with Michelle in East Sacramento to discuss your opportunities for a career with the State. In addition to explaining the State’s hiring process, you will receive a folder with information on exams and jobs to take with you at the conclusion of your consultation. There are no time constraints on this meeting and no additional charges for follow-up questions via emails or by phone after your consultation. 


Cost: $299.00

By phone: If you do not live near Sacramento she will call you, and while you are in front of your computer, she will explain the hiring process and direct you to the exams and jobs on the state’s CalHr website. There is no time constraint on the phone consultation. Within 24 hours of your consultation by phone Michelle will send you a recap of the exams you discussed along with information on how to prepare for an oral interview. There is no cost for additional questions via email or by phone after you consultation is concluded.

How The Process Works

After receiving your request for one of the consultation services Michelle will confirm your order and ask you to send her your resume and the most convenient times/days for you to meet with her or talk by phone while in front of your computer. Michelle will research the exams she feels you are eligible to take based on the information provided on your resume. Most clients are eligible for many exams though they rarely know what those exams are or where to locate them. Exams and jobs are discussed in detail and your questions about career planning with the State are answered. Additionally, any questions or issues that come up after your consultation either in-person or by phone can be discussed via emails or phone calls at no additional charge.

  • Where are the jobs listed and how do I find them?

  • How can I maximize my chances of getting a job with the State?
