Many people have helped me along the way in my career path, I wouldn’t be where I am today professionally without them! Therefore the best way I could think of to thank them, is to pay forward the good will that was shared with me.
I decided mentorship and helping grow talent in the local Boston area was a great way for me to give back. I accomplished this by sharing my expertise with people who struggled with a job search just like I did.
Whether it was helping write a resume or provide some interview coaching to individuals who had an important interview, I tried to be a valuable and credible resource to a job seeker that needed it! Below is just a few of the Boston area Universities and Career Centers I have conducted Seminars with and served on Career Speaking Panels participating as a guest speaker:
Boston University-MBA Graduate
Ben Franklin University-Undergraduate Technology Programs
Lee Hecht Harrison-Job Search Club
Operation A.B.L.E of Greater
Boston(Non-Profit providing training programs to a Mature Workforce)-Guest Instructor
Organized my own Professional Meetup Group called Tampa Bay Business Trendsetters-https://www.meetup.com/Tampa-Bay-Business-Trendsetters/
Tampa Bay Wave
I joined the Tampa Bay Wave mentors organization in November of 2017 to be a part of furthering their mission in guiding Accelerator members from a HR and Talent Acquition perspective through the process of building, launching, and growing a successful tech startup.
Tampa Bay Wave’s nationally recognized accelerator program is renowned for helping entrepreneurs transform their ventures into sustainable businesses that have a strong advantage in the tech industry.
