Guest Speaker for Monday, April 13, 2020

Jay Arbetter, Author, will be joining our Monday Morning Zoom session.

About Jay

Jay Arbetter has a passion for teaching individuals who are unemployed (or want to create a business doing what they love) how to network effectively with a little known secret he learned from one of his clients years ago. He used this networking secret to grow his business to managing over $420 Million in assets in over 40 states and two countries. And, now he speaks all over the Dallas metroplex teaching how to network to land your dream job. Most jobs are not published on LinkedIn or Monster.com. Most jobs are filled in-house by managers who ask employees who they recommend. Networking is key to getting back to work quickly if you’ve been laid off. It also is instrumental in making career changes if you are looking to make a change.Whether you are an employee or entrepreneur, you will benefit from the simple formula for connecting with more people and building powerful connections with people you enjoy being around.

Guest Speaker for Monday, April 6, 2020

Norman Lieberman, Recruiter, will be joining our Monday Morning Zoom session.

About Norman

After a successful career as an accountant, reaching the level of Accounting Manager and Controller, Norman Lieberman transitioned into a career as a recruiter.

He helped build a one-person accounting office into a suite of offices. After 7 years at that firm, Lieberman broke off and started his own firm.
Since then, Lieberman has placed, consulted and mentored 100s of people around a myriad of career obstacles they faced. He advises both candidates and client firms on such diverse issues as:

  • employee retention
  • strategies for hiring the best candidates
  • learning how to deflect the tough interview questions
  • writing well-constructed, creative thank-you notes that get noticed
  • guiding candidates through the nuances of securing healthy pay packages
  • mentoring on handling group interviews
  • dealing with difficult bosses and co-workers
  • effectively navigating the politics found in many organizations
  • re-vamping and advising on resume revisions that open doors rather then close them
  • guiding candidates successfully through the land mines of interviewing

Over the years, Lieberman has segued into placing many disciplines outside of accounting. A few of the other disciplines he has placed professionals include scientists, engineers, software and hardware designers, and manufacturing / operations and marketing professionals — all up to and including the VP title. This has culminated in his current 12+ years focus on professionals in the aerospace and medical device industries.
He has developed uncanny, street-smart, savvy methods for helping others reach their career goals quickly.
