Lisa Johnson Mandell  

Journalist, Author & Career Image Specialist

Lisa Johnson Mandell is an award-winning multi-media journalist, author and Career Image Specialist. She has been featured in The Wall St. Journal, as well as on Oprah, Dr. Phil, Rachael Ray, Bravo, Forbes, The CBS Early Show, The Today Show, FOX News and many, many other media outlets.

She expanded on the article, researching what other women had done and what the experts had to say about finding the perfect job during these challenging times, and wrote Career Comeback: Repackage Yourself to Get the Job You Want.

At the podium, Mandell shares her own success story and brings to life the advice offered in Career Comeback. Audience members learn how to “botox” their resume, are exposed to tech-savvy tricks for starting and improving their own website, are shown the ropes of online networking, and given tips to updating a wardrobe.

She shares the secrets that will get mid-career job seekers noticed and on the payroll.
