I have known Jim since 1998 when I became a content provider for the Online Career Center on AOL that Jim founded and managed. At all times, Jim has been even-tempered, organized, efficient, knowledgeable, and responsible in his relationship with me and others whom I’ve known who have worked with Jim. Jim demonstrates his caring, competence, and his ability to communicate with people of all ages.

Jim Gonyea is a career development futurist. He is the most insightful career planning thinker I’ve ever encountered, and I have worked with over 25,000 individuals. Jim sees what most others have not. Jim Gonyea shares the stage today with a limited number of career professionals whom I view as the leaders of our times. I see Jim as the father of modern day online career development.
