I heard Nick speak at a recent conference. He immediately commanded the room and engaged the audience in a very warm, confident manner. I was so impressed and left the seminar incredibly motivated and inspired! I’m looking forward to having him speak at one of our upcoming events!
Executive Director, Hudson River Housing, Inc.
Nick’s a wizard with all things related to your career. Revamped my resume, improved my interviewing skills, and helping me understand what employers are looking for. I was struggling to get an interview for a new opportunity, and within 2 months I had two job offers and a promotion in my first six months. I never knew such services were out there!
IT Network Engineer
YCS helped me recognize that I had a roadblock to achieving a promotion. Through guided, thoughtful self-analysis we identified skills gaps, and how I was pursuing advancing my career. With Nick’s help I received a job offer in a new industry, and I have been there ever since. I can still hear Nick reminding me to be mindful of ‘fundamental attribution error’, a fancy way of saying self-awareness! Highly recommended!
