The world has changed. Going to college used to be a guarantee that graduating with a degree would lead to a successful career. Too many college graduates are unemployed. Marrs helps both college students and recent graduates leverage their talents and maximize their opportunities by providing focused career counseling.
Marrs Career Coaching services include:

We provide a series of one-on-one sessions to help our clients both interpret their assessment results, as well as to give them the tools and resources to take the necessary steps to accomplish their goals.
