Dear Hugo Negron,
you for providing valuable insight into the job hiring process at the
Resume and Interviewing class. While attending the Resume and
Interviewing course that you taught, I was impressed with several parts
of the class. First, was the level of comfort I had with your teaching
style. It was very easy to ask questions and get quality answers based
on your experience in human resources. I felt that you had a genuine
interest in the success of us as your students. I like how you took
time to coach us and provide feedback on both strengths and areas for
improvement. Also, I found it helpful to look over examples of resumes
to distinguish between effective and ineffective resume writing. Thanks
for providing valuable insights into the hiring process with your
Regards, David Willeumier
coming to Mr. Negron's Resume Development class, I barely knew how to
interview properly or even how to write a proper resume and cover
letter, but now I feel more confident in getting a job.
In a little more than an hour,
Jennifer Falbo-Negron gently and knowledgeably led me and other
participants in her Guided Imagery/ Creative Visualization workshop
toward a quiet place within ourselves where we silently asked for
answers to our personal concerns. I didn't expect to leave a problematic
situation behind me as a result of the process. It lifted a great
weight from my shoulders. The answer was within me.
I've followed the path to the quiet place where self-truth is illuminated many times since Jennifer's workshop.
