FREE Career Webinar: Elevate Beyond - A Real World Guide to Standing Out in Any Job Market, Discovering Your Passion and Becoming Your Own Person

At a time when career and job opportunities are becoming increasingly competitive, it is essential to do all you can to show your professional and personal uniqueness.

That’s something many of us have trouble with!

How do you toot your own horn without appearing pompous in correspondence, documents, and interviews? Jake will share with you strategies, tips, stories, and resources to show how you can share and embellish your accomplishments, awards, and work history to stand out from others who are interviewing for the same position.

Jake’s advice is founded on his personal experience! After going to resume seminars, networking events, mock interviews, and doing over 100 professional informational interviews, Jake has unlocked valuable knowledge that can save you time and money and help take you to the next stage of your professional journey.

You will hear stories of highly successful business executives, middle managers looking for advancement, and graduates entering their first professional job and how each was able to leverage their personal unique characteristics and successes in order to elevate themselves beyond their competition. Jake combines these lessons with his own experiences to teach you how to discover a career you are passionate about, become a champion networker, and use your resume, interview skills and social media strategies to stand out from your peers and colleagues.

Join Jake to learn how you can act on the experiences of others to stand out from the crowd and achieve their goals.
