Speaking Engagements

I have been invited about 100 times to job networking groups, staffing agencies, and professional associations. I can speak for people who are either employed or actively looking for work. I really am a subject matter expert (SME) in all aspects of the job search and career management. Schedule a call for more information on any of these topics.
