Happy Birthday, Abby. I volunteered with a Job Networking Ministry when I saw you speak twice and was most inspired by your knowledge, generosity of spirit, honesty, and your sincere desire to help others. I continue to recommend you to those looking for a job or looking for a better job. It's hard to decide which pieces of advice have been most useful, but I would put that little book, "Top 12 Interview Questions Exposed" right there the top of the list.
Thomas Egan from Verona NJ
Happy 50th Birthday Abby! I have referred to your book many times for advice in my job search! Enjoy your birthday

I learn something new every time!

Happy 50th Birthday, Abby!! I first heard you at a 40 Plus presentation in Washington, DC. As always and since, you have been truthful and "awesome," espousing the phrase that you are "perfectly qualified," to an audience of seasoned work veterans. You have an amazing way of putting your audience at ease, and reassuring them that they are enough. Happy 50th, and wishing you the "Very Best," for the next 50 years, and beyond.

Kathy Snead from Philadelphia PA
Happy Birthday, Abby! I took your advice. When I got a temp position, I made them love me so much that the people I temped for helped me get a different permanent position at the company when the temp position ended. I've now made a successful transition from the legal field to healthcare. I couldn't be happier. I also followed your advice and wasn't afraid to change fields. Thank you for all that you do for all of us. I volunteer at My Career Transitions in Malvern PA, where you've been one of our speakers. I am constantly talking about you and referring people to your website.
