    Peggy, Until I saw your podcasts I considered myself adept at jobsearch and interviewing. Now that I've seen the podcasts/videos I can clearly see why I didn't get interveiws I'd have loved to obtain and why some interviews didn't lead to offers. I'm not in sales or in the medical/pharma field so I'll seek out recruiters more in line with my skill set but now you've given me insight into qualifying them. Your work is impressive and helpful. After my 30 year career in the US Navy, I have been working in employment while attending college. Although I've become quite adept at leading candidates into preparedness for job search and interviewing, you're work has convinced me I should probably return to my strength, technical management, now that I've nearly completed my BSBA. I will definitely stay tuned in to your website and recommend it to anyone in sales, especially in medical sales.

    Hello Peggy,

    I've only seen a few of your podcasts now, but every one is packed with useful information about finding your next job AND how to excell at that job. I find your personal examples (like sharing books that helped you) particularly helpful. Thanks!

    Peggy,

    Everyone of your podcasts is full of extrordinery tools that are putting me a step ahead of the competition. Even though I am a seasoned Executive with quality experiences in the job market i spent months in the dark.I now realize my success in the job search is worthy of partnering with a real pro. Thanks for all I am learning! The interviews have started to roll and a im sure a great offer is right around the corner. Sincerely, Kevin McGuire

    Peggy,

    Your podcast regarding managing an online presence was "spot on." You give some very important tips for keeping a professional online presence at all times. You also identify the primary social media outlets to use for maintaining your professional presence. I really enjoyed the podcast and your advice is very valuable.

    Well, I started your program in mid-March with much skepticism as I imagine everyone has spending money on a program with no income coming in or guarantees that it would work for me. My wife said try it, lets spend the money and see what happens...and we have the money back guarantee to fall back on if it doesn't work. So we took the plunge.

    I took your program, watched the videos, read your guides, adapted the letters etc..to fit my field, signed up for nearly 30 groups on LinkedIn, sent out over 275 messages with a 15% response return rate and over 25 resumes sent tracking with Excel. Since your program, I've been on 2 onsite interviews. I think you would agree...quite impressive numbers in such a short amount of time!

    A few weeks ago, I wrote to you about a company that I had applied to twice in the last 2 years since they kept posting their ad and I had 98% of all the qualifications for the Technical Trainer position, yet still was not getting a call or an interview. My wife said I should try your system with this company and see if that would make a difference. I went on LinkedIn, looked up the company and could not find a recruiter or manager, but I did find a VP of Delivery & Solutions, so I figured what have I got to lose...send her a message and the intro letter. About a week later, I received an email from the Training Manager who was given my resume by the VP and she was contacting HR to set up a phone interview. A few days later I had the phone interview with the Training Mgr which went very well and was told that their timeframe for an onsite interview would be towards the end of April...the week of the 23rd. That same day, I received another email from HR and the training Mgr, requesting I come in for an onsite interview on April 10th! On Friday the 13th, HR emailed to tell me I was having a phone interview with the new VP of Delivery on the 17th and that interview went very well too, where he told me that I would not hear anything until the end of next week at the earliest.

    Today I was called by the new VP who formally offered me the position!!!! And the salary was what I requested, only $3000.00 less than my previous salary and the commute will eventually be 15 minutes come August when the company moves to the next town over from me!

    I officially start April 30th and take the first software class with the new VP, who I will be making friends with very quickly!

    Soooooo, your program worked! It got me to whom I needed to get to, in order to get my resume noticed and access through the back door. I got the salary I requested instead of having to take a 30-40K pay cut from the jobs I've interviewed for since October, will get a 5% bonus within 6 months of being hired which puts me over my previous salary within the first year, get medical, dental, vision, life insurance benefits, 401K with 100% vesting day one, 18 Paid Time Off days 1st year, 8 paid holidays and the opportunity to move up! I'll be training what I know best....a program called Crystal Reports which I've taught for the last 12 years! Plus, I get to travel for the company nationally and internationally with all expenses covered.

    I could not be happier!!

    Thank you so very much for coming up with the concept! I am a believer!

    Thank you very much for the Podcast on 101 Interview Questions and the Interview Prep Kit attachment. Last week I had 3 phone interviews, for which I was fully prepared since I practiced for content, articulate responses and fluency using the Interview Questions, and had done my research using the Interview Prep Kit.

    Gathered from the interviewers that these are likely to go to the next step, a face-to-face encounter: 30-mins that became 1 hr chats. For these I have already prepared my 30-60-90 day Plan using the template provided on your Webinars. I did mention some of the elements (not all) of the 30-60-90 day plan on the phone conversations, and the interviewers were impressed!

    Thank you for your wisdom, advice and tools: they are effective. You are so much better than your competition!

    I found the last podcast that Job's is a number game quite informative. I appreciate Career Confidential sends thes podcasts once a week. I have used other products such as the 30/60/90 day plan in my last interview. The interviewer was surprised and there was no changes needed to be made to my plan. I will use this plan for every interview I receive from now on. Keep up with the good work as I find the information you provided quite helpful.
