What others have said

“I love this article so much. Exactly the kind of honest conversation that needs to happen.”
— Rishi Bhilawadikar

“After a year of receiving poor advice from recruiters and design professionals, it wasn't until I joined Larry's group where my career started to head in the right direction. The advice I received from Larry and other professionals in his community was instrumental in improving my resume, portfolio, increased my results in interviews, and even got me into writing. I have been very fortunate to have Larry as a mentor, and I can't recommend joining his Invincible Career community enough.”
— Christopher Schutt

“I reached out to Larry for leadership and executive coaching and he has been such a great partner to work with. He has also been immensely helpful when I needed guidance on how to think about my career path, vetting potential leadership roles, as well as their considerations, pros and cons. Most importantly, he helped me re-focus on what I truly wanted in both career and life by providing helpful exercises that made me think and prioritize what I wanted.”
— Shannyn Timrott

“I credit Larry with supporting me on multiple levels: from big strategic questions to day-to-day tactics, to emotional support (more important than it sounds). My time with Larry was an investment that set the stage for securing offers from Facebook and others - even as the COVID pandemic tore through the economy! As with the best coaches, he pulls out the best in others and that's certainly been true in my case. If you're looking for a coach/mentor/guide I can't recommend him more highly.”
— Ari Akerstein

Love your two latest newsletters. Thanks for writing such amazing work and compiling this list together!
— Anna Codina

“More recently I worked with Larry as a career coach and mentor to find my next career opportunity. Larry is extremely knowledgeable about the various aspects of job hunting and guided me through the complex steps of deciding what I want, finding/choosing the right opportunities, interviewing and offers! I highly recommend Larry's coaching to anyone who is looking to transform their career.”
— Paresh Vakhariya

Larry has been the person that I’ve routinely turned to throughout the past decade, for frank, forthright, and illuminating conversations about where to take my career. He’s been an insightful resource that’s been through it all before me, with no other agenda than to help me get to the best place I can for myself.”
— Andrew Sandler

Larry is what I used to call in my recruiting days’ top drawer’ - a true professional; credible, ethical and with a track record of expertise to boot. Larry ticks all the boxes! If you are looking to change or develop your career then Larry should be your first point of call.”
— Jade Gemma

“Larry’s advice, guidance, and support has been instrumental to my transition from my Corporate career to my Digital transition. I am extremely grateful for Larry’s support and knowledge. Not only does Larry have extensive industry knowledge and experience, he was able to translate this for me and my audience.”
— Katrina Young
