"I just wanted to give Mara a long, overdue thank you. I am officially an intern at The Broadway League and I could not have gotten it without her. I really appreciate the introduction, advice, and insights " Hillary G., Class of 2016, University of Michigan. "Good content. High level and useful." Paul J. "I was qualified for medical school but lacked confidence and a strategy. Before I met Mara, I interviewed at, and got rejected from, several schools. I was missing an essential component in the interview process. Mara was responsive and attentive. She provided me with 30 possible interview questions. She challenged me to answer each question and used my responses to evaluate my strengths and weaknesses. Mara provided feedback on how to "sell myself." She coached me through the wait-list process. She critiqued my letter of interest, advised me on how often I should call the school, and most importantly, never gave up on me. On August 8th, 2011, I was accepted to Temple University School of Medicine." Justin C., 24 years old, Medical Student. "Mara Weissmann played a huge role in securing my first job. She assisted me with the interview preparation. She spoke with me and made sure I was comfortable, confident and ready. Mara was a mentor and helped me to assess my skill set and understand that I would be best served for my future career if I focus on media planning. She had industry knowledge and helped me map out a strategic course for my entry level job search." Hillary M., University of Miami Class '10. "When faced with an incredibly difficult decision regarding a job opportunity, Mara helped me see all sides and come to the most informed possible decision. She was a huge career resource." JM.
