For everyone else, Thank You for dropping by.
Welcome to my one-page RG.com as we work to design the rest of this site due to the following event.
In December (2019) I self-published my 6th book, The Quotient. I was then offered a traditional publishing deal with Indigo River Publishing. I signed with IRP in April and withdrew my book from Amazon. It is now re-edited and renamed “Leveling the Paying Field, A Groundbreaking Approach to Achieving Fair Pay” to be published next summer.
Till then here is My Micro-Bio.
As employee #1, I was involved in the incredible success of the first job board in the greater Houston, TX area in the Neolithically-early days of the Internet: ca. 1997. Over a period of ten years of calling on people who professionally hired others, I learned how job search really worked versus the time-wasting, heart-breaking garbage I was hearing in the various workshops I attended and was asked to speak at–which lead to my creating my own highly successful accomplishments-based resume(s) and processes.
Being in the forefront of the online employment movement, I was asked to speak on search, promotion and advancement across the US, as well as on terrestrial radio and in online interviews in Australia, Panama, across the Caribbean, Canada, and the UK. I have been featured on NPR, PBS, Business Insider; in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, Inc., the Houston Chronicle, CIO, Huffington Post, and more. I have also hosted radio and TV in Houston.
Along the way I have written four books on job search and a fifth book, PROMOTE, which I wrote for those professionals who aren’t comfortable promoting themselves ON the job. This is the little book that ‘begat’ The Quotient. In “Leveling the Paying Field” I am taking on the issue of pay disparity (regardless of the “why”) and I’m damn proud to say I has “resolved the pay disparity issue.” Yes, that is a big statement but I stand behind it.
PS, job seekers: Remember there are two people you are trying to impress when you submit your online application and resume: The recruiter, who has the power to deny your resume goes any further, and the hiring manager. Draft your resume with both ‘audiences’ in mind. Or just use my Blended Resume (Click on the “J” button below).
