"I learned that you should always be networking; that means that you should be networking with people where you interned, your professors, alumni, your friends' parents, and your significant other's parents."
~ Brandon Bukovinsky
"Tuesday's special dinner and seminar were extremely interesting and insightful. By having William King speak to us, I learned about the T-Letter. It provides all the information about a potential employee to an employer by showing all the skills that the company can gain from that employee."
~ Stephanie Dolinar
"The most useful information that I took from Mr. King's presentation was when he discussed the Elevator speech. The elevator speech is what you should have pre-prepared when you go into an interview, it is the answer to the question every employer will ask you, 'Will you tell us a little about yourself?' "
~ Sam Naas
"In recent interviews, I have been stumped when they ask me if I have any questions about the company. Bill answered by telling me to ask questions that pertain to the position of the person I am meeting with. For example, if I am meeting with the president of the company, ask him the vision he has for the company."
