Interviews and Applications’ unique training program is founded on an integration of experience in both human resources and education. Ilene Granstein completed her undergraduate work at Tufts University and earned her Ed.M degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education where she studied Counseling and Consulting Psychology. Ilene has held positions in the field of Human Resources in both professional service organizations as well as in academic settings. Her background includes work at the Tufts Health Sciences campus, the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Pricewaterhouse Coopers and Camp Group. Ilene has served on the Board of Directors of the Scarsdale Teen Center as well as on the local school district’s health committee. She works in collaboration with local youth employment programs to provide training and preparation for adolescents and young adults.
Clients have accepted positions and are now at work in a variety of fields including technology, publishing, financial services, sports production, film, television, hospital administration and marketing while others have successfully gained admission to graduate programs. Ilene continues to go on interviews and knows what it’s like to sit on the other side of the desk.
When I first started interviewing, I was a nervous wreck. I panicked before interviews, lacked confidence and stumbled over frequently asked questions. Since I started working with Ilene, I have had a complete transformation.. Ilene was with me every step of the way, always making time for me before and after each interview and following up with, “good luck” and “how’d it go?” messages. When I finished interviewing season, I was getting callbacks from every interview that I had and received 3 solid job offers. I couldn’t be happier with my results. Thanks, Ilene!
