Reasons You Should Not Be Here

Hi, I’m Don Georgevich.

I always love the “about me” page on websites like this because they’re written in the third person …even though they’re typically written by the owner of the site.

So after Don Georgevich made several attempts to sound smarter than he really is by writing about himself in the third person, he quickly abandoned that approach and decided to write this page like it was a letter to a friend.

Which… in many ways, it is.

Anyway -- what do you want to know?

I’m guessing that's not the kind of stuff you're looking for.

You’re probably wondering...

Is This Guy Worth My Time & Attention?

For many readers, my answer is NO.

I’m 54 years old. I live in Cleveland, Ohio with my wife, Ruth.

We have two kids and a cat we affectionately refer to as Kitty.

Here's why I cannot help you

I can not help you get hired.

For some reason, people think that buying my programs and never using them will in some way produce miraculous results on their next interview.

I get it. I've bought stuff I didn't use and never got the result I wanted.

Despite the comprehensive guidance my programs offer on acing interviews, I must be upfront: they cannot single-handedly guarantee you'll pass your interview.

The truth is, no book or resource can.

Interviews are dynamic, with variables beyond any guide's control, from the interviewer's mood to the specific questions they choose to ask.

Success in an interview is also about your personality, experiences, and the unique way you connect with your interviewer, which are aspects no training program, however detailed, can fully dictate or transform.

So if you’re not prepared to commit to studying my programs, I’m not your guy.

second reason I cannot help you

If you're not passionate about the job you want, you're not going to like my stuff.

If you’re just looking for a quick job that you don't really care about, don't buy my programs.

If you’re looking for quick fixes, interview hacks or magic words you can use to deceive employers into hiring you, don't buy my stuff.

The Internet is full of these hacks.

They're all over YouTube and thousands of sites have boat loads of AI generated content that's designed to sell advertising instead of help you.

Does some of it work? Probably. If enough people try something, some will get results. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

But if you rely on that, you don’t have a plan. You have a whisper of hope.

you need to be willing to put in the work

If you want me to do everything for you, I don't want to help you.

To adapt a timeless adage, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

I prefer to empower you with the skills to fish for yourself, rather than simply handing you the fish.

When I hear someone ask, "Will you write my answer for Tell me about yourself, or will you rewrite my resume?"

What I’m really hearing is, “I’m not fully invested in the long term success of my own career …and all I want is a shortcut.”

Look, interviewing for jobs is HARD WORK. Yes; once you make some progress it can feel like you're on the right track with an offer looming.

But that takes time and HARD WORK to get there.

Dan can  help you

You're still here?  Good.

Here’s what I will help you with, specifically

My main focus is to help you not just pass your interview, but get hired for the job you want.

I’m pretty good with something called Behavioral Dynamic Interviewing which is a fancy way of saying, “Showing interviewers you know what the heck you're talking about.”

It is, in my opinion, the Holy Grail of interviewing.

I'll also focus on your positioning, where you essentially interview your interviewer to discover their goals, needs and pain points before you present yourself as the solution.

And the best way to do this is by asking questions of your interviewer so you can understand their world.

And only when that happens will they see you as a top contender for the job.

Here’s what you can expect from me

Actionable strategies and tactics to prepare for your next interview right now, for free.
The tools you need to gain an unfair advantage over your competition.
The formula for crafting perfect answers and making an impact so you stand-out as the best candidate and get the offer.
The secret to listening to interviewers and being relevant to their needs.

I give away all of this stuff for free.

The idea is you’ll say, “Wow, this free stuff really helped me. I think I’ll try the paid stuff.”

Pretty simple, right?

I prefer to demonstrate I can help you, by actually helping you.

But you still might be wondering …

How do I know if your stuff is any good?

Well, the smartest thing to do is get some of my free materials or read any of the thousands of online reviews from Trust Pilot, the Better Business Bureau or Google reviews.

If you don’t, you won’t.

But anyways, if you're interested, here's the short version of my story:

My first real job was selling electronics at Radio Shack in 1989.

After graduating college in the early 1990's, I started looking for computer tech jobs -- that's what they called it before "Information Technology."

Well, job interview after job interview, I fell flat on my face.

The only job I could get was selling life insurance, but that lasted a day. Then I stumbled around with various computer sales jobs.

Throughout numerous interviews and interactions, I began to sharpen my interview skills and techniques.

I got to the point where I could "literally" walk into any job interview and build such a strong rapport and bond with the hiring manager that I was often hired on the spot.

As I moved from job to job, my interviewing skills were known by the hiring manager and I was asked to sit in on job interviews and aid in conducting them.

From there I developed my own hiring procedures and used them to hire top talent for a multitude of Cleveland based IT companies. Additionally, both ExxonMobil and NASA have used my hiring procedures to conduct effective interviews and make informed hiring decisions.

With two decades of experience in IT Project Management under my belt, I transitioned into retirement and founded Job Interview Tools. Here, I dedicate myself to coaching job seekers on mastering interviews and guiding employers in identifying and hiring top talent.

And that's how I got my start as a "hiring expert".

Fast forward to today and I’ve got customers and clients in just about every country on earth.

And now I’m the “go to guy” when it comes to interviewing and hiring.

Here's my pitch to you

Go to my YouTube channel and watch some of the videos or go to my blog and read any of the hundreds of articles.

If you like them, sign up for some of my free trainings.

If they help, consider buying some of my online training or enroll in a coaching program and work with me directly.

Pretty simple, right?

Thanks for reading this page and I'm looking forward to working with you.
