Feedback from Career Week 2013 Attendees
“…The event was well-planned and well-orchestrated. Yet, there was an air of relaxation
that relaxed the tension and stress that comes with being unemployed, and uncertain
about the future. The speaker/presenter, Mr. Eric Hellige, is a phenomenal presenter.
Mr. Hellige is an exemplary example of what the Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK) program
intended to provide. I believe "ASK" is his middle name. Eric came to share some
information, he did not come to be an infomercial to promote/sell Careerbuilders.com
products; he came to share and teach his fellow alums how to utilize online job
sites more succinctly, more strategically, and more successfully. All I can say
is: he came with preparation and passion; he conquered a skeptical, but hopeful
audience; and he delivered an immeasurable amount of information, in a minuscule
amount of time.” (Alumna Donna Williams Murray)
“Thank you very much for the great workshop yesterday on Spirituality in a Job Search.
Believe it or not, I found it the most enjoyable and beneficial of all the workshops
I attended. The only event that came close, or may have exceeded it, was the networking
event at the end … but that’s just by nature hard to compete with!” (Event
