I am VERY pleased to share some good news reported by By Joel Dresang of the Journal Sentinel. In this Sunday’s Journal, Dresang highlighted some job search SUCCESS stories – including my pal Robert (Bob) Bachman (read Bob’s story here).
My blog readers may recall Bob – he’s The Likable Engineer who created this tag line using what he learned in my personal branding presentation. As he says in the Journal Sentinel story, “You make your own luck. If you don’t work at it, you don’t get lucky.”
Thanks to Joel and Bob for spreading the good news!
