As a career sales professional and sales leader, I felt confident that my approach to my recent career search was solid and based upon years of successfully selling my products and services to many clients and customers. One discussion with Neil made me realize that the methodologies and materials I had been using were unfortunately outdated and ineffective, which were validated by the “less than optimal” results I experienced. Neil’s valuable education about how to navigate applicant tracking systems, using keywords to optimize the effectiveness of my CV and resume’, and insisting that each opportunity needed to be an exercise in preciseness instead of a mass marketing campaign JUMP STARTED the effectiveness of my search and almost immediately started yielding significant interest and interview volume. I am happy to say that I accepted a very compelling offer recently (among multiple offers) and I believe Neil’s career guidance was a major reason for this success. If you are (like I was) struggling with your job search or just looking to accelerate your career moves, I cannot recommend the techniques Neil teaches and advocates highly enough. It would be well worth your while to have a conversation with Neil and his team.

Don J., Consultative Sales Leader

Neil Schultz is the consummate professional! I had the pleasure of utilizing Neil’s services this year and both my resume and LinkedIn profile have sparked interest from potential employers, recruiters and former colleagues that are ready to pivot and evolve! As such, if you aim to position your professional portfolio competitively in the employment market please consider the array of executive career services that Neil and his team delivers.

Ronney G., Sales Leadership Executive

I met Neil when I wanted a review of my resume after losing my position in a reorg. He reached out to me. We discussed his program in depth and I found that he was beyond extremely knowledgable about the job market, how to better present myself on LinkedIn and helped me with my resume. Each time I meet with Neil I learn something new. He is also extremely responsive when you have questions, and believe me, I have had many. He has been a light in a difficult time for me, but he has always believed in me and my abilities. Not only has he helped me in my career search but he has been an excellent counselor during a difficult time in my life. Neil has been a God send to me and I would recommend him and his program to anyone searching for their next career. Thank you Neil for always being there. I can’t begin to express how much he has helped me.

Phillip Z., QA/QC Manager

Neil was a great help for me during the craziness that was 2020. After being laid-off during the pandemic, I was looking to make a career transition out of sales and into marketing. Neil and his team did a fantastic job not only prepping my resume and profile but also acting as a fantastic mentor while I was trying to figure out what my next career move would be. I cannot recommend Neil enough – He really took the time to get to know me and help me prepare for the goals I aspired for. I landed a job practically as soon as we finished our mentorship so I say it was a major success 🙂

Sabrina N., Digital Marketing Specialist

The Most Inspired & Insightful Career Guidance I’ve Ever Received! I am beyond blessed by the time that Neil Schultz spent with me. His career guidance was inspired and insightful. He literally read my mail, opening my eyes to some truths I needed to hear and confirming that which I had been pondering over the last week of introspection. Neil easily saved me an incalculable amount of time in my decision-making process and provided encouragement necessary to trust my own discernment. I am thrilled that not only do I now have a vision for the career path I need to take now, but also what my calling is and where my passion lies to fulfill it. I am still processing in a such a profound way. Thank you will never be enough for the gift that Neil gave me!

Erika W., Owner and Fractional VP of Sales

Neil is an excellent choice for a career consultation. I needed his assistance in preparing a better resume and LinkedIn profile. The results I received were outstanding! As a bonus Neil had several insightful remarks about my career and the types of work assignments I enjoy. I highly recommend his services!

Michael W., Executive Vice President of Sales

I have worked with Neil for 3 months and have been thoroughly impressed. I can give him a business idea, he will ask more questions and together we come up with a better, more targeted idea. He has helped me “think” through many business issues. I consider him a member of my executive team, even though all of our work is done remotely. I will continue to use Neil on an on-going basis. I think everyone in management and especially C-Level Managers need a “coach” to help them and hold them accountable. If you are looking for that kind of coach I would recommend Neil, without hesitation.

– Pearl C., Salesforce.com

Superior writing skills. Excellent communication. Very pleased with my new resume. More importantly, he was able to help me see where I couldn’t and steer me out of dark waters when my previous company downsized me. Then, he helped me discover ME again and helped me redefine my brand. Now, I enjoy getting up in the morning to work without any of the old dread I once felt. Thanks Neil!!

– Dale A. Intercom Healthcare Technology

Neil is a great resource and brings much knowledge to those he serves. He took the time to get to know me on a personal level and truly understood what drives me as an individual. He provided great insight and knowledge, while boosting my confidence in my abilities where I sold myself short. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a new direction in their career. Neil is gifted in many ways, but the one that stood out was his desire to help me see a deep value in myself.

– Neel M., Aramark

Neil communicates very quickly. Cover letter looks great, very happy with the content, format, and overall quality! Good communication, great product, and great turnaround time. I would highly recommend.

Very professional and courteous. Understood my needs and provided positive feedback. This was a collaborative effort with Neil doing bulk of the collaboration. He is in tuned with the current job market and provided very beneficial tips. Money well spent. I highly recommend Neil with all job search challenges. He has excellent communication skills. He spends time listening and understanding your concerns. My comfort level during the project with Neil was excellent.

– Mahmood H., JC Penney

During my job search, I worked with Neil via weekly conference calls. He helped tailor my resume to best showcase my skills and experience, which makes it easier to be noticed by possible employers. He is an extremely positive force to have in your corner, and is able to turn any negatives into positives. Neil was always available if I needed an additional pep talk in-between our weekly scheduled calls. I appreciated our time together and I’m grateful to have met him when I did.
