You’ve got questions - we’ve got answers

And if it turns out we haven’t answered one of your questions below, feel free to contact us



why are you not considered career coaches, consultants, or recruiters?

When we originally started elarie, we referred to ourselves as ‘career consultants.’ But after working exclusively with clients only on a one-on-one basis, we realized we needed to stretch our reach of knowledge on job seeking strategy and systems. By creating these online programs, we can help job seekers learn how to best approach combing through job descriptions and forming search plan, putting together a resume and cover letter, optimizing a LinkedIn profiles, and practicing interview and follow-up techniques. You can learn more about what we do and how we do it over on our About page.


Currently, we are only offering our self-study programs. However, almost all of our programs come with additional 1:1 assistance to help you finalize your resume and cover letter, LinkedIn profile, or interview questions. We also offer online webinars, workshops, and seminars to give you more face time with us!

what hours do you work?

Any emails or inquiries will be responded to Monday - Friday between 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM (EST). Please allow up to 48 hours response time for any inquiry.

Where did the name ‘elarie’ come from?

It’s actually a combination of both of our middle names - Elizabeth and Marie. And in case you’re wondering about pronunciation, it’s (ella-ree).


what computer skills/requirements do i need to work through these programs?

We try to make everything as user-friendly as possible, but to get the most out of these programs, we suggest:

  • Having a stable internet connection

  • Having a desktop, laptop, or tablet computer

  • Basic understanding of downloading content from the internet

  • For Resumes & Cover Letters: Microsoft Word or Pages and ability to use either of these word processors

what program should i start with?

It will depend on where you are in your career journey! However, if you want to really just start from the beginning and cover your basis, we suggest our free program, Building Your Career Roadmap.

do you ever offer in-person events outside of michigan?

Even though we’re an online business, Michigan is our main home base and is easiest and most cost effective (for you and us) to offer in-person workshops here. This is why we do our best to also offer as many online workshops and seminars as we can. However, we’re definitely open to traveling and willing to discuss options!
