My motto: "Let's Get Your A** a JOB!" says it all!

Providing specific advice to job seekers to land the job they want.

With over 15 years of experience as a hiring manager, and 6+ years as a job search coach, I've successfully helped job seekers understand the hiring process from the company's perspective and provide specific tips and strategies to get the job they want.

My background in improv comedy makes my presentations entertaining as well as educational. Attendees leave feeling empowered, enthusiastic and rejuvenated with specific tips to implement in their search.

A complete list of my topics is below. My presentations are packed with solid content and specific advice they can incorporate into their job search. Happy to provide references upon request.

Workshops

All workshops are 60 to 90 minutes, can easily be tailored to the specific needs of the audience, and require a flip chart and markers (unless otherwise noted.) Attendees will receive a handout outlining the teaching points of the presentation.
