“Marty unlocked the Vault. He took me through his very methodical approach to job search, focusing on what has worked for him personally. No text book approach here – Marty rolled up his sleeves and surgically dissected my resume, LinkedIn profile, handbill, cover letters, search engines optimization, and taught me how to use resources that I didn’t know existed. Truly a Top 5 Lifetime Investment for me.”
