Experience With College Students

While in a full-time Career Services role at the University of Central Florida (UCF), I educated students the fundamentals of interviewing, negotiation, networking, and resume development through talks and individual coaching. While at UCF, my love for making a difference through engagement and enthusiasm led to the nomination as a Student Affairs Outstanding Service Award Finalist. 

As a freelancer, I have been a guest speaker at Duke University, North Carolina State University, Wake Forest University, ECPI, Wake Tech Community College, United Way, YMCA, and the GAP Teen Entrepreneur Retreat.  In 2019, I delivered an engaging and motivational keynote to a crowd of 1,700 at a college graduation.

While in an career consultant role with a global outplacement firm, I was chosen as the workshop facilitator of choice to conduct job search readiness workshops designed for recent college graduates. Additional value I bring students is my experience in recruiting capacities at SeaWorld, Hilton (Disney Resort), and Universal Studios.

I love making a difference in the lives of our future leaders!



“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 will fire up the crowd and leave them laughing and informed Dan has a unique way of sharing his experiences that will keep you coming back for more. I have seen Dan's presentations on three occasions, and all were thought-provoking and fun!”
