Why I Serve Careerists & Job Seekers:
Having worked with hundreds of hiring authorities for 22 years, helping companies in multiple industries hire functions from entry-level to CEO, I noted many job seekers lacked the skills and understanding to change jobs. Usually they just fell into their next one. My first niche was hospital management, and in the late 80s, it imploded like today’s economy. I began consulting to both, even though the company was my client. Finally, enough was enough. Now my successful recruiting and sales experience enables me to identify and fix your problem, and give you a custom strategy for results, even if you’re learning with a group.

Bad references don’t always prevent someone from getting a job. The key is how the issue is handled in the reference, and [...]
In addition to drug testing and often fingerprinting, companies both national and international have also required credit checks. But it’s become more the norm than the exception, because with the extreme number of people applying, companies have implemented it as a means of indicating a candidate’s character. Unfortunately for many have been out of work [...]
You’re selling a product and the product is you. So much of what I teach involves advanced sales techniques as they apply to job hunting. That’s because job seekers are too “me” focused when the buyer, which is the hiring company, wants to know what’s in it for them. When the buyer is about “me” [...]
