What people are saying about Martina

"Getting laid off during Covid19 was a difficult transition for me. When Martina stepped in, I was pretty frustrated with my lack of progress in my job search; I was not getting interviews or any feedback from prospective employers. Martina helped me get back on my feet and my head back in the game. As a career coach, Martina is goal-oriented, knowledgeable, and patient. I would highly recommend Martina to anyone looking to make a career transition."
