    …Personally, Paul’s program really helped me to create a good target company search strategy and improve my networking and interviewing skills. Through his program, I was able to do very well in several interviews making it to the “final round”, got several offers and landed a fantastic job that came about 100% through networking.
    …Following Paul’s advice, I focused on building rapport, learning about the business problems which I could help solve, and making sure that the hiring manager knew I really wanted this job. And I got the job, Paul, thank you!

    As an academic researcher of social networks and a teacher, I know how difficult it is to “teach” someone how to build networks and relationships in any meaningful way. Paul did this masterfully. I whole-heartedly recommend him as a speaker to any audience who is interested in career development or just wants to create and maintain better relationships.
    - Mina Yoo (Assistant Professor at UW Foster School of Business)
    Paul is dynamic, a surge of experience regarding the new wave, up to date job search strategies. His presentations have covered Social Media, Interviewing and Resume Writing to mention a few. Paul has spoken to the Professional Networking Group in Lynnwood WorkSource every time captivating and engaging his audience. Paul will always set the pace. All will be smart to follow.
