What Clients are Saying
I had been in the insurance industry for over 6 years and was desparately trying to get out. I hadn't searched for a job in a very long time and had no idea how to navigate the Portland job market. I had scored ZERO interviews before my sessions with Vicki. Within 2.5 months, I had landed 3 interviews, one of which resulted in a job offer. My sessions with Vicki were the best investment I've made in a long time. ~ Megan M Student Advocacy SME, Chegg In
