Who Joins ABPOF?

ABPOF is specifically for you if...

  • You are getting interviews, but not job offers
  • You do not feel in control of your career
  • Have been turned down for promotions or not getting job offers after interviews, even though you are highly qualified for the position
  • You’re scared because you’re unemployed and feeling passed over and you’re too young to retire
  • You have to work another 20 years to support yourself, when you’d like to retire
  • You feel technology has passed you up and can’t compete with all the younger people vying for the jobs you want

          I'm sure that you have found that even though hiring managers try to give all job seekers a fair chance, they tend to choose younger people when making hiring decisions or giving out promotions.

You can get instant access to this all-in-one resource for motivated individuals who want to take charge of their career and keep it on track.

Thank you so much for the excellent resume and cover letter you wrote, and for the effective coaching I received. When I contacted you, I had been looking for a job for two years, with no luck. I came to you wondering what to do next. Once my resume was sent out – on a Monday, I had two interviews and two job offers by Wednesday – two days later, and they were for the type of job I wanted! I could not believe how quickly it all happened.
