“I had the pleasure of hiring Donna to do a seminar on “Using Twitter for the Job Search” for a seminar at Rutgers University. As many clients do today, our students and alumni struggle to learn and incorporate social media applications into their job search strategies. There was a great demand on campus (from students, alumni and staff career counselors) to learn more about social media and the networking/job search process. Donna is an expert in this area and we brought her to campus to make presentations to both the career counseling staff and the student/alumni populations. Donna presented a comprehensive and informative training program in an entertaining and personable way! Her style captured the audience and her up to date information on the content area left all armed with additional tools to use in today’s challenging job market! I will not hesitate to call on Donna again to present career related seminars on our campus.” Scott Borden, Assistant Director, Rutgers University Career Services
