Career Transition Workshops

In my comprehensive Career Transition workshops, the following topics are delivered through a blend of engagement, enthusiasm, humor, and inspiration:

* Myers Briggs (Career Assessment)
* Resume Development
* Networking
* Interviewing
* Negotiation


“I had the pleasure of taking several classes taught by Dan, as well as participate in an 1:1. As an trainer, he brings an incredible amount of energy and creativity to the classroom, ensuring high engagement, and causing participants to 'think outside the box'. We'll all been in classes that dragged, wondering how we could apply any of the principles taught. This is NOT the case with Dan - the time flies, and at the end, you leave with ideas that you can immediately pursue or put to use. In working with Dan 1:1, he provided very useful information and works to 'customize' the most appropriate response for your particular needs.”

Background in Career Transition

My experience in leading Career Transition workshops began at Drake Beam and Right Management, two globally-recognized career management firms. In those roles totaling more than 15 years, I facilitated workshops designed for professionals whose jobs were impacted by downsizing. Two major highlights include a 30-month project in which I collaborated with 18 career coaches to service 3,000 job candidates and the delivery of workshops over a six-week period at a manufacturing plant comprised of 250 employees.

​In addition to my experience as a project consultant with Drake Beam and Right Management, I have created and facilitated Career Transition workshops for Duke University's Short Courses Program, Wake County Lifelong Learning, Wake Tech Community College (HR Development), and Capital Workforce Development career expos. Additional value I bring young adults and established professionals going through career change is a background that began in recruiting capacities at SeaWorld, Hilton (Disney Resort), and Universal Studios. 



“Dan's high energy is infectious – he has the rare ability to bring out the best in people around him. The humor he effortlessly integrates while instructing puts everyone at ease and quickly creates an amiable atmosphere. Through my interactions with Dan I have been inspired to discover a career for myself that brings me as much happiness as Dan’s career obviously does for him.”

“Dan's help and encouragement during my career transition was a key in keeping me going forward. Enthusiasm and confidence are the keys to maintaining sanity and momentum during a job search. Dan has both qualities in abundance and has the rare ability to project them to people. Thank you, Dan, for all you did to keep me going during my job search!”
