Mike has been invaluable in my transition from Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street firms to FinTech.
I’m now the Head of Risk Management at DriveWealth, a pioneering C-round FinTech specializing in fractional equity investing.
Mike has a strategic customized plan which is well thought out and highly effective. He understands job seekers’ frustration with applying online and helps them to penetrate the hidden job market. No more applying online!
My resume never looked so clean and effective. My LinkedIn profile is fantastic. If you’re making a move, speak with Mike.
Within 2 months of working with Mike, I moved from Wall Street to Salesforce. If you need to pivot, he is your guy.
I was a very successful sales trader for 20 years. However, the landscape of Wall Street had changed, and my next move was probably not going to be the same role since fewer and fewer exist. Mike and I worked on identifying all the different types of possible jobs and industries I would fit.
As a young professional transitioning from my first job after college to my second, working with Mike was an incredibly important part of my job search.
Mike guided me through the whole process from providing career direction and advice, revising my resume, and rebuilding my LinkedIn profile. He understands the FinTech world due to his investment banking background as well as having worked with many IT clients. Both my resume and LinkedIn profile attracted a great deal of attention from recruiters, which ultimately led to my current job placement. Mike helped me to create my brand and sell me! I’d highly recommend his services.
Mike helped me in 2018 as I was considering changing my career path. His systematic approach to identifying a focus was helpful and looking back at the results of our discussions it is clear that the findings are still relevant and helpful in shaping my direction today!
I was looking to quickly get back to a top named Wall Street Bank. After working with Michael, I am now a Director at MUFG Securities.
Mike was extremely helpful in aiding me to think strategically about my career options. He has a great mind that helped me see the big picture then zoom in on tangible possibilities. He is also part of the select group of coaches from the Columbia Career Coaches Network; he is blessed by Columbia University.
Mike helped me land my dream job with Google!
After 23 years with the same company, I needed a change but didn’t know where to start. Mike helped me explore other careers by setting up coffee chats with friendly professionals. We then analyzed those conversations to understand what really appealed to me. From there, we recreated my resume and my LinkedIn profile to best promote my value and experience. His patient guidance helped build my confidence, throughout the rest of the process.
He showed me how to customize my answers to typical and non-typical questions given the company personnel with whom I was speaking. He taught me that some interview questions have hidden questions. He taught me appropriate answers. He pumped me up and showed me how to dialogue with the interviewer.
I love my position with my new employer Bank of America and moved from Associate to VP. Trust me; you want a guy who spent 15 years on the Street to represent you.
I hired Mike because he knows the Wall Street world inside and out. My original resume was very technical and did not fairly represent my skills. After he was through with his magic, all my skills were so clear on paper that I felt great. My revised LinkedIn profile attracted so many more hits as soon as I made the updates.
Mike helped me get to the greatest company in the world, Amazon (AWS)! Mike helps you figure out your career direction so you save time.
I knew I wanted to network with professionals that had certain technical certifications. Speaking to these professionals at the right firms would help inform my job search. Mike arranged coffee chats. Mike saves you time, a commodity sometimes more valuable than money.
Mike helped me move from Fitch Ratings to MUFG Securities and taught me how the game was played.
I knew Mike was the right professional for me. Empathetic and intuitive as a person and understood Wall Street back and forth. I enrolled in his comprehensive Job Accelerator Plan, creating a resume and LinkedIn profile that spoke to my hard and soft skills, to networking me into my top target investment banks. We mock interviewed to help me tell me the genuine story of my past and my future goals.
He sped my job search by at least 3 months, sparing me the pain and agony of continue job search.
