Since 1988 Bob brings his considerable and recognized professional career management skills, and those of his respected group support team, to help transitioners build their skills for transition, for subsequent employment, and to understand the roadblocks and obstacles faced. The support organization brings a wide range of professional experience all valuable to those during transition and afterwards. We promote mutual aid, applying the proper tools and techniques in a full-time job search including the "Elevator Speech", and providing encouragement during the difficult times in their lives. One support member is a licensed psychiatric social worker available for special assistance, outside of the meeting, where there are signs of depression, anger, etc. Reilly has brought many of the tools and techniques discussed with the job candidates from the professional career management practice has managed for over 20 years including:

· Personal Financial Planning · Entrepreneurial Considerations
during Job Search including Franchising
· LinkedIn for visibility & research · "30 Second Elevator Speech" · Outside Speakers · Support Staff across multiple industries
