“I took your career exploration work shop about 4 weeks ago. I had never stopped and thought about what I really like to do. I started a new job at a private college last week! I really wanted to thank you for telling me that you were confident that I would get a new marketing job fairly quickly… Your words encouraged me a lot and it really happened!” – Workshop Client
