Jayson White, worked with Dan 


Just wanted to let you know yesterday I accepted the Assistant Executive Director for Communications position with NYSARC! I’m meeting with the executive director this afternoon to formalize the details and determine a start date. I couldn’t have done it without your career counseling. I cannot thank you enough for being so generous with your time and resources. I owe you a TON of gratitude.

 If there is anything I can do to make it up to you, just say the word.

 Kind regards,

 Jayson R. White

Dan, I wanted to let you know that I landed a job three months ago. Even though the idea of emailing all my contacts felt a little uncomfortable, I followed your lead and did it. It was through this networking technique that a couple friends made some suggestions and lead me to getting my current position. Thanks again, John

“Dan is great to work with! He was instrumental in getting me my current position which matched my capabilities like a glove! I am very happy at Inner Space Systems. If it wasn't for Dan I would not have had this opportunity. Thanks again Dan! Merry Christmas!

James Bowers, Account Executive

As a client of Dan Moran, I have found him to be the consummate professional. Dan is intelligent, a good listener, thoughtful and seems less motivated by personal financial gain than having a genuine desire to help people and see them maximize their talents and build on their strengths. Dan consistently provides solid, useful professional advice. He is always professional in appearance and demeanor. Dan has an even temperament and demonstrates thoroughly professional follow through in all his efforts. He is not content with the status quo and is always looking for methods and vehicles to grow personally and help others achieve their dreams. He is consistently upbeat and positive and those qualities become infectious. I recommend Dan without reservation for a high level professional position. Hiring Dan would be an investment and if I were in a position to hire Dan, I would do it in a heartbeat. Please feel free to contact me for further information.

John Penzer,
hired Dan as a Career Coach 

“When I wanted to start my own business, I had many questions, and very few answers – such as: “Where would my clients come from?”,”What resources will I need?”, “How will I know when I am ready to make the leap?”, to name just a few. As I was looking for solutions to these challenges I came across an article Dan wrote about being ready to start your own business. I reached out to him, and hired him immediately. From the first meeting I knew he could help, and was the key resource that helped me plan out my transition from full time employee, to full time business owner.

Working with Dan means going through a carefully constructed concise action plan personally tailored to meet your goals, and moving along said plan with a consistent pace. Every step of the way he was right there with a positive attitude, support, and advice that helped remove the obstacles holding me back, while giving me the solid foundation and tools I needed to start and maintain my venture going forward. I always felt Dan went above and beyond the call to help me achieve my goals and eliminate doubt. An example that illustrates this commitment, is when Dan not only provided advice on how to get started with networking and business contact management, he went on make some immediate connections for me with some people from his own network. Each of them have become valuable clients who I work with to this day. Another example is how he used his influence with the local media to get an article written about my business in the Times Union, and also a TV interview.

Thanks to Dan, I have been able to achieve my dream career and absolutely love what I do for a living. If you are stuck in your career and want to make a change, but aren’t sure of who to talk to, or how to make it, I highly recommend Dan (and have on many occasions). Not only does have vast experience in this area, he genuinely loves to help people find the occupation of their dreams.”

Craig Nolin,
hired Dan as a Career Coach 

“I got a great job, thanks to help from Dan Moran. Years ago, he and I worked well together at Garden Way/ Troy-Bilt, but went our separate ways in the late 90’s… he into HR and I into marketing consulting. When we reconnected, Dan had started up his own career coach consulting office, Next-Act, and I was trying to find larger and longer-term consulting clients.

Dan helped me do some soul-searching to ensure that my expectations were aligned with my abilities, experience, and personal goals. Then we updated my CV (a fancy name for a resume), trimming it down and emphasizing the “real me.” He pointed me in the direction of some good books and online advice. I refreshed my networking and developed relationships that were longer term than the typical span of sales calls or job postings.

Not long after, one of the sleepy networking contacts suddenly got active. They had a fascinating marketing/product challenge that was perfect for me, but they wanted a short term consultant and weren’t offering my usual rates. Dan advised me to go at this with full speed. With his mentoring, I negotiated carefully but firmly until the job turned into a year-long engagement, with higher pay. It worked out great for me and great for my client!

When you work with Dan, great things can happen!”
