About the author
After not completing my first year in college, I worked odd jobs for seven years until I’d finally had enough. I decided to change my life and joined the Army to take advantage of the College Fund. After my enlistment, I went back to school while working full time.
The next year,I found a job as a recruiter. Over the next decade, I interviewed and hired hundreds of engineers, designers, analysts, and technology professionals. When IT (Information Technology) began booming after 2000, I made the transition and have been an IT executive since.
I am living proof you can remake your career. As you read this guide, you’ll benefit from my 35 years’ experience interviewing, hiring, and evaluating talent. I have a BS in Management and an MBA in Management Information Systems (MIS) from Oakland University. Originally from Michigan, I live in San Antonio, Texas, with my wife and two children.
