100% AUTHENTIC STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

In the past two years I have taken multiple IOA courses. I am a 46-year-old mom and married. I did not know how to get back into the workforce. My health had changed and so did the demands in the work market. I really thought that I was doomed. I began to research positions and decided to let IOA help me find what I am really good at. Today I am an experienced and well-off BRAND AMBASSADOR thanks to IOA. Through your courses, I learned that I was cut out and built to represent clients at various events doing demonstrations, promotions and sales. IOA helped me to update my resume and get the job! I have been working all over NYC at some of the largest events in the Food Industry. Clients love my work and so do I. It fits my lifestyle and my age. I cannot thank IOA enough for this. My work FB page reflects many of my recent events and it is looking good! Thank you. Marianella Morales - United States
