"I was having trouble finding a career path -- I felt I could do a lot of different things. So I did an eight-week program with Jan. Researching the background of what my ancestors have done -- creating a family career tree -- helped both professionally and personally. We identified a strong interest area in which I'm now getting licensed. Taking the tests and talking to Jan was very helpful. She was clear about informational interviewing, and figuring out what to do next. You won't exactly know what you'll get out of it, but in the end she will shed light on things about you that you didn't even know were there. ."--Mike, 27, Seattle
