🌟 I’m still savoring the incredible experience with Lynn Hazan at the 2023 Career Development Conference📚

Lynn is the Founder and President of Lynn Hazan & Associates with more than 38 years of experience in the recruiting business.

Lynn shared the invaluable session on “Storytelling Through Your Resume for Career Success.” The depth of her knowledge is truly remarkable, and the information she delivered during one hour was more impactful than reading a couple of books or scouring various sources or videos.

I’m eagerly anticipating more opportunities to learn from Lynn in the future. Her speaking engagements are more than just learning experiences. I anticipate new information and exciting events where Lynn will be a speaker, making each learning encounter more than amazing🌐🎓

“Lynn Hazan thank you for the inspiring words….. thanks for being THE MOST ENERGETIC SPEAKER …. Learned a lot from your session.. your session was thought-provoking and inspired me to start making my resume as my story rather than a generic professional summary like 1000s of others resumes… I liked your exercises on making 6-word sentences for myself and my organizational behavior. I am more than inclined to make my resume better with your guidance and insights.

A Branding Workshop Testimonial

“Lynn’s personal branding workshop was great. I really enjoyed it and learned several new ways of distilling my experience. I was able to put some of it into practice the next day during a phone interview — I had a case story at the ready. I also enjoyed “Calling Cards” and have shared the exercise with two friends. I always find Lynn’s input and advice to be so helpful.”

“Lynn and I met at the PMI Chicagoland Career Conference in December of 2022. She was one of the presenters and did an excellent job speaking with enthusiasm, keeping everyone’s undivided attention, and sharing interesting facts and tips about careers in project management. I had a lot of takeaways from her talk and have already been utilizing the resources she provided.”

Caitlin Morris (workshop participant)

“Thank you very much for hosting tonight’s webinar, I really enjoyed and appreciated the knowledge I gained. The part of this process that I’ve enjoyed the most is the learning – as well as meeting successful industry folks like yourself – and this evening’s seminar exemplified that perfectly. What resonated was the importance and impact of tailoring your résumé to the job specs is one. It’s an example of that little bit extra effort it requires to make yourself stand out. Using this time to sharpen my technical skills is another. There were many others as well!”

A.R. (workshop participant)

“Lynn, thank you for a wonderful session tonight. I truly got a lot out of it and appreciate you taking the time to help me and others. I’m now working on the assessment suggestions you provided to refine my search for specific roles and target companies. You always put growth and development of your candidates and clients first to cultivate the most successful connections. I’m looking forward to getting the resource kit from the webinar to incorporate more tips and tricks. Thank you!”

I recently attended Lynn’s webinar on ‘how to work more effectively with a recruiter’ and was blown away by her profound knowledge of the subject matter. I was particularly impressed by the strategies she offers to overcome the differences between recruiter and candidate and bring harmony and common ground to each one’s expectations. I highly recommend her webinars and I’m preparing to work with her one-on-one, too. Thank you, Lynn!

Lynn and I recently connected through KMG for an interview. I had an amazing experience working with her. The kind of energy she brings on to the table is contagious. She is extremely sincere, detail oriented and patient. She focuses on improving students’ professional skills along with promoting a healthy symbiotic relationship while working. She is one of the finest, most transparent and experienced recruiters out there in Chicago. I eagerly look forward to collaborating with Lynn in the future. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend any student/ job seeker to get in contact with her for advancement in their careers.
