Betty,

I want to say yet again how much I appreciate what you've done.Three months ago, when I tried to write a resume and contemplated interviews, it all seemed overwhelming - an undoable, despairing task.  Now, everything seems possible.

Thank you.   MJ

 

 

 

Dear Betty,

In case you haven’t heard, I was offered a perfect position with the **** Center.  This occurred, in large part, due to your information, and most importantly, the role-plays. This position was the first interview I had after a successful role-play we did together. You have no idea how much that session served to bolster my self-esteem and be successful. You are incredible. Thanks again.

Sincerely yours,TG
