“ I just accepted an excellent offer from Tesman Inc. here in Sudbury. I had the interview yesterday afternoon and received the offer this morning! It is directly related to my field of engineering; they offered an excellent overall package with a significantly higher salary and vacation times, which I could not refuse. I would like to thank you for all of your help and guidance as it helped me a great deal in learning new skills related to job searching, interview preparation and resume editing.”
