Mr. Johnson--your approach is spot on. We met briefly at a Potomac Officers Club luncheon many years ago. I have been building my HR and Management consulting firm over the last 5 years. However, recently I have spent most of my time being a career coach to hundreds of professionals in transition, giving presentations on the subject, and marketing my book on the subject. Many job seekers are not prepared to distinguish themselves in the interview and get the job them want. I would like to spend 30 minutes with you to discuss what I have done and how we might be able to enhance each others approaches to this issue. Please take a look at a short video that was done to show a portion of a presentation I did recently. http://youtu.be/Hj5y8Xt0GLY All the best, Jim Thomasfirstname.lastname@example.org
