DJ helped greatly with my desire to improve my self- brand. He reviewed my LinkedIn profile and provided tips I could work on in order to improve my online presence. His dedication goes even further by offering follow up sessions to see improvement and to offer more constructive feedback.

DJ is living the dream right now in his career. He makes a great mentor because he is available. He does have a lot of knowledge regarding different business positions and he is very knowledgeable on resume. I recommend his mentorship to anyone one but especially to those who have a bit clearer picture of what their next career is and is looking for a mentor to guide them a bit more. He is very understanding and listens really well. First impressions is that he is a caring person and loves to help people. You won't be disappointed.
