“Josh Riley took time from a very busy schedule to present a powerful and effective workshop at the Job Fair at Brookwood High School. The students’ reviews of Josh’s presentation on utilizing social networking in your job search were rave reviews across the board. In my own research on Josh’ credentials and experience and my communications with him pre- and post-event, I found him to be an expert on his topic and (and this is certainly not the case with every expert!) just as expert at relaying the very valuable information to our audience and to me personally. I recommend Josh unreservedly.”
