Refreshing! Career Planning at its Core
“This book was refreshing to read. At times it was emotional as I was able to relate my own life and career struggles with the author’s life, and his own challenges. It was real, and I am thankful that someone was finally able to put into words what I and many others are now feeling across the country. It is a raw glimpse into the mind of a recruiter who has experienced many challenges in his life and as a result his own career was radically changed. As a professional teacher, I was impressed by the author’s ability to craft a story that was not only interesting to read, but helpful to his readers at the same time. This is much more than a job search book, it is career planning at its core.”
“This book was written by someone who has walked the walk. It is refreshing to read a book by someone who has experienced the same pain as its audience.”
Arleen Bradley, Career Coach “The Job-Loss Specialist”
“Paul Rega’s level of professionalism and service to his clients is unmatched in the industry. In my experience, Paul coached me to a point where I could excel at my interview and ensure a win for my future.”
Joy Isaacs, Food Technologist, ACH Food Companies
“Paul is a highly skilled recruiter and career coach. His guidance and advice has helped me through job transitions at several companies. I highly recommend Paul as a career coach and mentor. I also recommend his latest publication “How to Find a Job: When There Are No Jobs.” It gives sound career advice and shows you how to market yourself in today’s challenging job market.”
