Dear Martin:
I would like to express our appreciation for the Placement Seminar you conducted at the Washington Department of Services for the Blind.... The materials you have developed offer an approach that is practical, possible for our staff to do, and relevant to the job market of the 80.... I know from my own experience that your placement materials are geared for the present employment environment where job seekers find the market very tough. I hope you will continue to lend your creativity, energy and job placement knowledge to the work of our agency.

Dear Martin,

You were definitely the highlight of our workshop. Thank you so much for giving us your time and expertise. I had people coming up to me all day saying, "Where did you find him? -he's wonderful!" We passed out evaluations at the end of the day to help us with our next workshop effort. Participants repeatedly commented that they really got lots out of your session.... I appreciate your generosity in linking people, resource material, providing reading lists, and giving valuable input in the career counseling field.
