Martin, a NY Times bestseller, author and commentator on career issues, had this to say about Denise Wilkerson…
“This is an unsolicited endorsement, I rarely give them. We live in uncertain times where the knowledge and wisdom required to survive and prosper in the professional world over the long haul is almost non-existent. Denise is one of the few who really grasp the issues, and who has thought through an intelligent response. In twenty five years I have published fourteen books, each addressing a different aspect of job search and career management, Denise Wilkerson is one of less than sixty people I have quoted in my entire body of work. “
