Mark Klein is a superb career counselor. He not only helped me improve my resume and interview skills but he also gave me helpful advice about how to structure my time during my job search. Mark also gave me helpful advice about how to focus and alleviate stress using exercise and meditation. He is a kind, personal and highly educated career counselor whose attention to detail makes him invaluable to individuals that he helps. He goes above and beyond other professionals would deem acceptable and is a person who gets you through the hard times. What also sets Mark apart is his “never give up attitude”. He inspires others and gives each individual the confidence to reach their goals. Mark is not only a mentor but someone that I can speak to freely about career related issues and get an honest response. Thank you for all of your help!

Mark is an amazing Career Counselor whom I met in 2017 during my first year in Queens College. I had the pleasure of being mentored by Mark when I was applying for the America Needs You Fellowship program. I wanted to write this recommendation for all of the support and mentorship Mark had shown me over the past year. I can honestly say that I would not be even close to where I am today without the encouragement, advice, and support that Mark has given me. Mark helped me develop my interview skills, offered life advice, and gave valuable suggestions on how to develop my social as well as communication skills. He was incredibly generous with his time and energy and with his help, I was able to get into ANY fellowship program. Mark is an inspiration to me and I hope to affect others in my life as he affected me.
