What People Are Saying

“This book is the equalizer. It levels the playing field for those without the insider’s advantage.”

– Alison Overseth, CEO, Partnership for Afterschool Education

“Marti is awesome! She helped me get into the professional world. I would have been a lot more confused without her.”

– Charlie Bohnsack, rising college senior

“Our son graduated college with dual degrees and a minor in his chosen field. He just didn’t know how to make a job in his field happen. As parents, we recognize that entering the work world today vastly differs from our experience. Finding a job and embarking on a desired career that aligns with your values and strengths is a skill that isn’t taught at college. Marti’s in-the-know expertise, support and effective engagement brought him from a motivated yet unsure college grad to an independent, launched young man thriving in an industry of his choice.”

 – Nancy Gany, parent

“Every successful startup CEO I know had an early internship experience that helped set them on the path to leadership.  Marti’s book details how to set yourself on that path.”

– Brad Treat, Instructor, Entrepreneurship, SC Johnson College of Business, Cornell University
