Silhouettes For Vets, Mark Brenner and his staff came at just the right time. They were instrumental in keeping me focused and motivated in my search for employment. The commitment to veterans is exemplary. In addition to all of the efforts Mark also pointed me in the direction of LA Fellows. LA Fellows is a free program / class that is conducted at LA Valley College also in the business of getting folks back into the ranks of the employed. I have now been back to work for approximately one year. I am ever grateful for the key role Silhouettes For Vets played in getting me back in the game. - Semper Fi -

I have been job searching for a few months. I met Mark Brenner once during a career fair, but our phone conversations made me feel like a knew Mark for a long time. Mark makes my job search seem like his own job search. Mark has always been dependable in answering my calls and connecting me to his industry contacts. Thanks Mark Brenner!

Mark and his staff have been so supportive during my job searching process, by reviewing my resume, coaching me on interviewing, and negotiating salary, which really helped increase my confidence. I recently received a job offer for a position I'am very excited about, because I will be working with fellow veterans again!
