“”Unbelievable! After 15 months and 29 failed interviews, I was out of options. Your advice changed everything! I ended up with multiple offers and a great new job in just 6 weeks.”
“I was VERY VERY down last Monday and Tuesday.  But I dragged myself out of bed and to the meeting Tuesday AM.  As usual, the meeting motivated me, so I pulled out of the funk in time to nail the interview on Wednesday!””
“I got more out of (this event) than I did out of 16 hrs of training with an outplacement firm!”
