Larry did such a great job preparing me for the interview that I got called back to do a presentation. He is a wonderful and thorough teacher. Not only does he have answers that work, but he gives printouts and explicit directions to help you remember. I highly recommend him; his consultations are an excellent investment.”

“Thank you for helping me through the daunting process of capturing a lifetime of professional experience in a two page resume. You listened carefully to what I believed was at the core of the position I applied for and then asked spot-on questions to clarify. In two painless conversations, you were able to help me express my professional capabilities in a convincing and powerful document. Even more impressive was how you helped transform my cover letter. You knew exactly how to pique the reader’s interest and guide them to my resume using concise, clear language.

Larry and his team offered practical advice and user-friendly handouts for professionals in transition, those new to the market and those changing careers.

Their presentations were polished and the agenda well-coordinated. The team members treated the attendees with respect.
