My resume' is just a sheet of paper...time for change.

I'm looking for new and adventurous positions away from the automotive industry if possible because it seems that 30+ years experience is no longer good enough. I have worked and performed for the best and done my best for them but no one seems to look at that. I have searched my soul for direction and feel it is time to walk away and start over. I have so much potential and I'm wasting away waiting for other's to recognize it in me. I have 20+ years of successful management experience in the automotive industry that translates to fast paced, creative, and demanding roles outside the automotive industry so moving into a Creative or District Manager role is my focus. I also have interest in a Training role if it's the right industry I can sell, I can teach others how to sell, and I can also learn how to sell better. I have a brain and not afraid to use it! These fields interest me: 1st choice: Music Industry* (products) I have extensive experience and interest in this field*, a solid small company in need of someone who thinks out of the box for growth and direction. I could move into a leadership role and I could make a difference for your company. I make mistakes, I learn from them, I make more but I always win in the end. Ideal job: free to make the choices to direct. Power to implement change for the good. Freedom to inspire people to be their best and do their best. Allows me to be a person not a number. Support me and I support you 10x. I do not do "all commission jobs" so please do not contact me. I'm looking to stay in the Florida/south region but willing to travel around as long as I can live in Florida.

You inspire me!! I am in the Medical feild.office. I was born with the brain and physical capability to help human and animal save lives!! But yet seem like people choice a person who is bilingual all the time here where I live..so it's really hard for them to hired a person like me...so plan B is a different approach.

“How to turn an Interview into a Job” I can help…I promise! Have you ever found yourself in one of these situations? • You submitted 400 applications and not one response • You went on countless interviews and the interviewer said he would get back to you and… you never received a call back • They asked you for your references and you walked out thinking … I did great and then…nothing • The interviewer told you, you are right at the top and they were really going to consider you…and then nothing.

So, let me ask you a question…let’s pretend there was a systematic interviewing system that works and I could prove it to you…what would you do…and it is 100% FREE. I have been volunteering helping veterans and individuals since 2010 at the Plymouth Career Center in Mass. Please verify my credibility on LinkedIn – Ronald Loto. Please contact me and I would be more than happy to conduct a seminar and share “HOW TO TURN AN INTERVIEW INTO A JOB”
Example: Ron First and foremost I wanted to thank you. Last month I attend your seminar. My biggest fear in my job hunt was the interview process. Your classes not only provided me with the frame work to get through the interview but gave me the ability to control the conversation. The great part of the techniques are just applying everyday people skills. The contract portion seems to put everyone at easy. I have received three offers since applying your plan. I also have my third stage interview tomorrow for the job I think is the perfect fit. I feel confident it will go well. This is a huge change from how I felt about interviews 6 weeks ago. So Thank you sir for all of your help. I was hoping you could send me the 90 business plan template. I think it will help me knock the ball out of the park. If you could send me the template it would be great.

Hi Ron - Thanks again for your help in getting prepped for my interview. The interview was this afternoon and went very well.

I used the skills from your seminars and our discussion and feel that they were a great help. Acting like a "doctor" really helped to set the tone of the interview and allowed me to "diagnose" what their problem was. The pain they were feeling was that they did not have enough time for all the operations related work and created this position to handle that aspect of the business. Throughout the interview I asked probing questions and was able to bring them down the pain funnel. I feel that this digging deeper really helped to open the interview up and allowed for a greater discussion of my skills/values. I closed with the hesitation question and was told that I would be coming back for the next round. Not a sale, but at least a foot in the door. Since last week, I have picked up a contract job in Boston and will not be able to attend the seminar tomorrow.

Thanks again for teaching me the system, It works Bill Ronald P. Loto sent the following message at 1:15 PM Congrats!! Thanks for the kind words and wish you all the best! Ron Today Ken Trail sent the following message at 9:33 AM Actually Ron, I have many more kind words for you. Although I have a lot of caring friends and colleagues, you were the single biggest supporter and influencer in my job search. Your classes were great, the information was critical and the presentation was outstanding. Your passion and concern really shone through and made the whole situation easier to deal with, allowing me to focus on how to proceed step by step successfully. Thank you so much for your prompt replies and great advice – I interviewed with six companies and by following your suggestions received offers for every one of them, allowing me to pick the best and not just grab the first thing that came along. Your efforts really paid off for me (and my family), you are a difference maker!! YOU STUFF WORKS Ken

I feel that too. I invested in a college degree and went back to the job world with a Bachelors Degree in Marketing. Noone sees that. I feel I am wasting away because they don't see my full potential. Companies do not want to train anymore. If you have been a mechanic they want to hire you as a mechanic. You may be trained in something totally different that they also need. They have blinders on when it comes to potential, desire and what else you can do. The other thing I do not like is they often try to hire you at the bottom level jobs. A man that has experience and financial obligations they don't try to help him/her. Good luck to you.

To all, I have had some serious leads since I posted this. I have 3 different levels of jobs and each brings something different. I'll keep you posted. Thank you all for the kind words. Please do not get discouraged about your own job searches. I approach things with a "think out of the box" mentality. If you think it will work than do it. You are your own enemy in getting what you want. Defeat and conquer your fears! Good luck to all!

Its sad that today experience does not matter as much as how cheap companies can get so called "quality help". Would you want a doctor who knows how to take your blood pressure to do open heart surgery or would you want one who knows the ins and outs of this surgery? Thats called experience. Would you want someone who knows how to change a light bulb to design you a million dollar home. Experience costs money but most companies don't want to pay for it. It is said that experience is the best teacher, what the hell happened to that kind of thinking ( out the window I guess ). Most H.R. people have their hands tied by the suits on the top floor .CHEAP,CHEAP, CHEAP SEEMS THE WAY TO GO. WHAT IS TODAYS BUSINESS WORLD COMING TO ( IF I COULD ANSWER THAT QUESTION, I WOULD BE ABLE TO PICK ALL WINNING LOTTERY #'S ALL THE TIME. JUST SAYING! To all the people out there looking to better themselves GOOD LUCK!

Since posting this I have accepted a great position with a strong software company. I researched the things I felt I was weak in and learned how to first take the tests, the knowledge needed for the content, and how to get myself past them. After interviewing and passing the tests (and they were VERY difficult) I can finally say that I have found a great position with a great company! Never let things defeat you and always learn how to get past barriers you think are barriers! Most of the time they are not as hard as you think! I got down on myself for a little while but always tried to dust myself off after a job rejection and I know how hard that is! I have been on the bottom of the bottom before. I knew I was better than the no's I was getting and kept trying so in the end it all worked out. There is light at the end of the tunnel but each person's tunnel are different lengths so never stop moving forward because the light is right in front of you! You have to really want to be better then the next person to reach it! You'll get there just hit the gas a little more sometimes to get to where you are going but NEVER put the brakes on because life doesn't stop! Good luck to all!
