My Experience With College Students

While in a full-time Career Services role at the University of Central Florida (UCF), I educated students the fundamentals of interviewing, negotiation, networking, and resume development through talks and individual coaching. While at UCF, my love for making a difference through engagement and enthusiasm led to the nomination as a Student Affairs Outstanding Service Award Finalist. 

As a freelancer, I have been a guest speaker at Duke University, North Carolina State University, Wake Forest University, ECPI, Wake Tech Community College, United Way, YMCA, and the GAP Teen Entrepreneur Retreat.  In 2019, I delivered an engaging and motivational keynote to a crowd of 1,700 at a college graduation.

While in an career consultant role with a global outplacement firm, I was chosen as the workshop facilitator of choice to conduct job search readiness workshops designed for recent college graduates. Additional value I bring students is my experience in recruiting capacities at SeaWorld, Hilton (Disney Resort), and Universal Studios.

I love making a difference in the lives of our future leaders!

“Dan's high-energy and stories connect the audience to his message - and help them remember! He keeps me on the edge of my seat with anticipation.”

“Dan will fire up the crowd and leave them laughing and informed Dan has a unique way of sharing his experiences that will keep you coming back for more. I have seen Dan's presentations on three occasions, and all were thought-provoking and fun!”
