Here’s what students, professors and administrators have had to say about Kathy McAfee and her motivational educational talks:
“Before attending your “Perfect Your Pitch” session at our career summit, I was really worried about my marketable skills and how they would set me apart in the field. Honestly, I had never given a moment’s consideration to what I would say if I had to “pitch” myself! When I began to consider my past and current experiences, I realized that I have a lot to offer the world in my chosen field. I focused on being authentic and, during our later “pitch” sessions, my fellow classmates commented that I was “smooth and genuine.” I came away from your session with a better understanding on how to be comfortable and confident in my own skin and believable as a potential job candidate. Furthermore, I feel fully focused and invested in my education because I now have a clearer picture of my goal. Putting together my “pitch” helped me embrace that goal.” – Sarah H., senior year student attending the 2012 Career Summit at Bay Path College
“Thank you from all of us at the Finance Association here at Central Connecticut State University. Your ‘Perfect Your Pitch’ presentation conveyed how we students should effectively market ourselves, person and brand alike. Your advice was most effective in that, we left your presentation with skills we could immediately employ to our advantage.” – Elias Haddad, President, CCSU Finance Association
