Martin was fully engaged with my questions and my development as a whole. He appreciates that I paid good money for advice, and found a happy medium between moving the conversation forward yet never rushing. I wasn’t sure what to expect from a 30 minute Q&A. Without giving away some of his points of focus, he helped me shift the way I think about pursuing a job/career. The whole process can be overwhelming, and it’s easy to focus on the job titles/required experience/and technical skills I may or may not have. Martin draws from his own experiences but never moved the focus from myself or what I wanted from the conversation.
He recalled almost every detail throughout the conversation to make a final assessment of my strengths, what he thinks is important to me, and an idea of how to pursue those things.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from our conversation, and I’m extremely happy I leapt into the unknown for help. I would absolutely do it again for the clarity our conversation brought me.
