Dave was extremely supportive throughout the entire resume critique process and was always willing to answer my questions, no matter how minor.
— Jessica Kimpel

“Dave has provided purposeful advice since I first attended his workshop at a recent NASPA regional conference. While his initial presentation focused on how to excel during an on-campus interview, he also provided constructive and substantial feedback to improve my resume and cover letters. As a former educator looking to transition my career into higher education, Dave made sure that he understood my career trajectory and relevant experience and allowed this information to guide his critiques. When he adjusted the formatting and overall organization of my resume he did so with the intent of highlighting the most crucial transitional skills relevant to the industry and the jobs that I expressed interest in. He also helped to identify areas within my resume and cover letters that needed greater explanation or clarification.

— Jasmine Ana Ramón

“Dave was my mentor for NASPA National since I was a first-time attendee, and I found him to be very helpful and supportive. Prior to the conference, we video chatted to learn about each other and set some goals for the conference. Dave told me what to expect from the conference so it was less overwhelming when I arrived. Once there, he made a point to meet me in person, introduce me to others, and checked in a couple times throughout the week. He even followed up with me again once I returned home to ask about my experience!” - Jasmine Ana Ramon
