"I have had the pleasure of working with Ed over the past year and can honestly say that he has been a tremendous asset.  He has a very thorough approach to the job search process whether you are searching in your own field or transitioning to a new field based on your skill sets. Like any search process, it takes work, but Ed's approach is comprehensive, educational and practical in the changing job market we find ourselves.  He most certainly added value to me from the resume origination process to networking to interviewing skills.  His extensive background in this field has served him very well.

 

He is an invaluable resource and one with whom you will find it a pleasure to work.  Something that is very important is that he is not a person who insists that you do it "his way" like others that I have encountered.  You will find that he is equally interested in what you bring to the table as you will be to what he brings to the table.   He is a perpetual learner and likes to look at the job search process from many angles, which I found to be very refreshing.   

I sincerely recommend Ed's services to all who are traveling this path."

"Ed has the knowledge and experience not too mention the best attitude and passion I have ever come across to help and assist those in a job search. Don’t just listen to Ed but put into practice the information he will provide."

Steve E.

"Thank you so much and thanks for the help with the mock interview session from several weeks ago. The role that I shared with the group during your session was the one I landed with at [company]. It just took them awhile to complete the rest of the interviews and then make a final decision. Take care and please continue the great work you are doing in supporting people in transition. It's an extremely valuable service and very much appreciated by many."

"In Sept of 2016 I was laid off from my job and suddenly I found myself in a place I had been before, without a job. Several of my friends knew Ed who had been working to help a group of senior citizens write resumes for prospective jobs so they suggested I reach out to Ed.


I had a resume but it was seriously outdated, not having not needed one for years, was not formatted well and neither was my LinkedIn account.


Ed coached me through the process and asked all the right questions.

 

Ed was able to pull information out in such a way that it helped me see my capabilities as well. I had done the online resume formats and read books but ultimately it was the coaching of Ed that made it what it was.


I submitted my polished resume to several company and it really looked great. It was something I was proud to hand out.


I had a job within a month of turning to Ed."

"Ed is a mentor in the truest sense of the word. The time I spent with him was all volunteer on his part. He gave of himself at his seminars on interviewing which he holds, free of charge, every other week. There is no other group like Ed's in this area. As a matter of fact, I traveled from Providence, RI to Framingham, MA each time the group met.   

 

While I was job hunting I was the beneficiary of his largess and he drove the group to improve on the interview process. Ed's expertise is evident and once you attend you will be drawn back so that you can sharpen your skills. If you are job hunting and therefore interviewing, I don't know how you can get along without working with Ed. Thank you Ed for all you do.

​"Ed helped me to improve my resume, including identifying and using the buzz words prospective employers look for. He is a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond what was required. If you are serious about seeking a job, you will not find a better resource to help you."

"In May 2016 my position was off-shored...I chose to undertake a short-term contract that would allow me to learn new skills. When that contract ended I soon found myself lost amiss the variety and complexities of the job search process.  This feeling affected how I was performing on interviews.  I was finding that I could not move beyond the telephone interview.

 

Ed’s Practice Interview Group helped me to re-focus.  With his process and his help, I discovered what I was doing wrong in the live interview process. He helped me with techniques for answering those tough interview questions, by backing up my answers with examples from my skills and work background.  In a short time after this training, I had landed three interviews with top-notch companies, and these interviews led to two job offers on the table. 

 

At the company I chose to go with, one of the Directors who had interviewed me mentioned that I had been one of the best candidates he had ever interviewed.  I thank Ed for his thoughtful process and advice for helping me win through what had been a 5-hour interview."

“Since I first met Ed, I noted his dedication and willingness to help others regardless what it takes. He organizes and maintains an interview practice group, travels to local libraries to give feedback during interview rehearsals and more importantly keep a good log of what get people hired by employees.

His technical knowledge allows him to find root causes and suggest areas of improvement.

I recommend Ed to companies that are looking for managers with excellent emotional intelligence and solid technical background with years of experience to leverage”.

Aliou N.

Austin, TX

I was an over 50, unemployed woman who didn't know what she wanted to be when she grew up. Ed was very responsive, supportive and helpful as we started from the beginning and made quick progress.
 

With Ed's assistance, I figured out my skills and interests. He helped guide me along the way as I determined what jobs would be a good fit for me. He also was a great writer, and helped with my resume and LinkedIn profile so they appeared professional.


I found the experience to be very motivating. When I started, I was very depressed and really didn't want to job search. But each time I left a session, I felt so much better and motivated to look for a job.
I truly enjoyed working with Ed and got a lot out of our sessions.
