The Reviews Are In…

Dear Mr. White,
I wanted to take a minute and thank you for all the professional help that I have received attending the North Metro Job Networking meetings there at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church. Once I really started using all of the tips and hints that you taught us, I not only started to get phone calls, but also started to get many interviews. Now I have a permanent job. Your ideas and the items you taught at your meetings are great and professional. I used all the tips for interviewing and follow-up that you gave us and they truly worked. I will sing praises from the rooftops about your networking group. The thing I liked best is that your group openly invites spouses to attend as well. This was great for us.  It really helped our relationship and increased my spouse’s understanding of just what it takes to find and land a new job. Your group was a real blessing to us both. I also appreciated the way you start and end each meeting with prayer. This group gave me a newfound confidence in my value to any organization. I have attended about 6 other networking groups and this one was the most positive one in the Twin Cities that I attended. I was able to leave every one of your meetings with something new that helped me with my job search.  I recommend this group to everyone I talk to who is either unemployed or who is employed but looking for a different job. Your expertise in interviewing, writing resumes, cover letters and how to actively network is just simply wonderful and is the reason I got my current job. I cannot thank you enough. God’s blessings on you and the great work your group does for people who attend.
Sincerely, Daniel (a former job seeker)
