“Claire is a very helpful and caring coach. I am a new business owner and had no idea how to navigate LinkedIn as a business. Claire not only helped me with creating impactful posts, but she also educated me on how to set up my business LinkedIn account. Claire is also very passionate about engagement and generating leads, and all of this knowledge has helped me make new contacts that I didn’t have before working with her. I would recommend Claire to anyone who is looking to find ways to build their business via a platform like LinkedIn because she knows what she is talking about. If you are on the fence about hiring— Don’t! She is worth every penny and then some! ” – Shantey Brown


“I am thankful that I met Claire at my first BNHRA Network and Chill event. Claire was super supportive and encouraging in my decision to transition from the insurance field to the HR field. I was a bit nervous and Claire gave me some great insight on my approach. Claire introduced me to LinkedIn and showed me how it would help my transition into the HR field. I can honestly say I have become obsessed with using LinkedIn! When the position of Sr. Hiring Specialist became available at my current employer, Claire helped me prepare for my interview. If it wasn’t for Claire, I would not be currently working my dream job in HR.” – Marib Dhalai

“Claire is a knowledgeable, dedicated, and inspiring coach. I joined her coaching program to learn of ways I can leverage technology to reach my full potential. I was part of a three-month program with homework and biweekly check-in calls. The pace allowed me to fully grasp the concepts we were learning and get feedback on the recommendations I implemented. At the start, Claire shared how her professional life was transformed when she tapped into LinkedIn and started to actively engage on the platform. She reviewed my Linkedin profile and provided recommendations to make it stand out and shared with me best practices about what leads to successful engagement on Linkedin. She is truly a LinkedIn expert. Claire is dedicated to her clients and can gauge where they are and provide appropriate guidance on the next step. I recall when I shared how I wanted to consistently share my reflections on the platform, she was encouraging and helped me find the balance that would work for me. Above all, Claire is an inspiring coach who walks the talk. When I look at her Linkedin profile and the successful journey she is on, I see at work all the strategies and skills we covered in the coaching program.” – Mo Muhire

Her training covers all the basics and advanced techniques. I whole heartedly give her my highest recommendation. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Claire, you won’t find anyone more qualified and more genuinely invested in your success.” – Ellin Sidell, PMP

“I’ve been following Claire for over a year, but never had the opportunity to speak with her directly. Last week I had the pleasure of connecting with Claire via Zoom and she’s an absolute JOY. I am drawn to people that are authentic, transparent, and present which is probably why I started following Claire. She’s extremely funny, responsive, talented, and refreshing. Claire was fully prepared for our meeting, ready to provide me with strategies, feedback, and guidance based on my goals. Far too often coaches lack the ability to provide customized solutions that work for their clients. I am pleased to say that Claire knows how to engage with her clients, ask the right questions to help them accomplish their personal goals. I am already seeing the impact of implementing just a few of her recommendations and I am excited to continue to collaborate with her as I work towards my goals. I highly recommend Claire to anyone looking to grow and manage their social media presence and career goals.” – Kimberly Bozeman, PHR, SHRM-SCP

“I’m so thankful to have connected with Claire. A consummate professional, she took time to ask all the right questions to ensure her presentation to the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) Buffalo Niagara Chapter would hit the mark. She was eager to share her knowledge with our members, and best of all – you can tell she genuinely cares about the success of her customers and clients. Her presentation was outstanding for both new and seasoned practitioners, containing tips and advice which were thorough without feeling weighed down. Overall it was a pleasure to work with her and I think you’ll agree.” – Lori Allan


“I firmly believe that Claire’s coaching is invaluable, even for someone like myself who has already been an HR professional for several years. With Claire’s guidance, I was able to vastly improve my LinkedIn presence, helping to grow my network (and it’s still growing!), make valuable connections, and expand my knowledge base. In addition, and maybe even more importantly, Claire helped me lay the foundation to overcome my “Imposter Syndrome”, gain confidence in my own abilities, and feel comfortable acknowledging that I might actually know what I’m doing! Whether you’re in the depths of a job search and want more visibility or are comfortably in a job you love and want to grow as a professional, have even ONE conversation with Claire. Her energy and enthusiasm are infectious, and you’ll find yourself more excited about career coaching than you’d ever thought possible. You won’t regret it.” – Shannon Chmura


“Claire has provided me with unmatched advice, insights, and professional guidance throughout my time knowing her.

She is thoughtful, impactful, and an asset to any organization or network!” – Noah Nardozza

I highly recommend Claire to anyone looking to enhance their online presence.” – Christie Engler, SPHR, SHRM-CP

“I was fortunate enough to have crossed paths with Claire. She has a passion for people, a well-round knowledge in HR, and invests her time in getting to know you as a person to help you showcase your best self. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her, as she assisted me in revamping my LinkedIn profile. In all honesty, I was unaware of all the moving parts that came with having a LinkedIn profile. Claire sat with me and patiently explained the analytics, then provided me with ideas on how to make my profile more appealing to hiring managers and recruiters. After working with her, I have appeared in more searches, and my LinkedIn page is more inviting as it displays my experiences, and visitors have a clear idea of my journey. Choosing Claire will be a rewarding decision for anyone.” – Kimika Logan, SHRM-CP

Countless hours put into finalizing and perfecting the projects and assignments, that is what you can expect from her.

“Claire has come in to Say Yes Buffalo twice now to present to our college students in the Ambassador Leadership Program on using their LinkedIn profiles professionally and effectively. She did a fantastic job helping students learn how to use LinkedIn as a professional tool, convincing them of its benefits, and how to use it appropriately. You could tell that the students were engaged by the fact that they immediately started working on their profiles and connected with Claire on LinkedIn after the meeting. I highly recommend working with Claire to learn more about how to use LinkedIn as a way to connect to others professionally. We look forward to bringing Claire back in the future to support more students as they learn professional skills that will help them succeed. We truly appreciate Claire supporting our students in this manner.” – Johanna Caplan


“I’ve had the pleasure of being co-panelist with Claire Petrie for 2 different panel discussions that were specifically about how to maximize a Linkedin profile. One of the panels, I organized for the SUNY Career Development Organization (SUNYCDO) conference in June 2019. This conference hosted career development professionals from all over New York State. When deciding who to put on this panel I immediately thought of Claire. She is an expert in using Linkedin from both the job seeker and recruiter perspective. Claire did an awesome job on the panel. She is not only a Linkedin guru but also an excellent public speaker and trainer. Just being connected to Claire on Linkedin will be helpful to you, as she can use her Linkedin profile and followers to promote your activity, posts, etc. Connect with her and then message Claire about how she may help you to meet your goals. I am glad I did.” – Ed Brodka

“Claire served as a speaker and presenter for the Buffalo Niagara Partnership’s young professionals program, BN360. The event was called “LinkedIn Lessons.” Claire is an exceptional presenter and a true expert in her field. She combines her industry knowledge of HR, LinkedIn and other key topics with her hands-on experience in a way that is both engaging and educational. She not only had the room engaged…but actually participating and asking questions. What’s more is that Claire’s LinkedIn learnings were taken and applied outside of the educational seminar. In the days, weeks, and months following attendees were using what Claire taught them – a true measure of her success as an educator, facilitator and expert in the field.” – Rachael Herrmann


“Claire is a true HR / Talent Acquisition professional. She has a passion for helping people succeed in their job search and is driven by the relationships she creates. I’ve had the pleasure to work with Claire on a project for her blog and her communication style is welcoming and genuine. She unselfishly shares information that is logical and informative to her audience. Claire brings a fresh voice to the HR community. I am so grateful for our mentorship.” – Michelle Kohlhof
