"Searching for a job is tough, finding the right job is even more difficult. I realized that in order to find a new job I needed to prepare myself. And I knew that I couldn’t do that alone. After so much time with one employer, I wanted an edge. I wanted guidance finding new opportunities, preparing for interviews, and I had doubts about my marketability in a competitive industry. Thank you, Ian, for your heartfelt advice, perspective and compassion."
