“Lindsey Pollak is by far the best speaker and subject area expert in the Gen Y space. I have heard Lindsey speak multiple times and have continued to be impressed by her content and with the energy she delivers her presentations. I have brought her into my organization, as well as recommended her to major conference planning teams multiple times to give keynote addresses to a variety of high-level audiences and she always receives outstanding reviews. I continue to learn new things from Lindsey and would recommend her to any organization looking to get a true and thorough understanding of the issues surrounding social media and generations coexisting in the workplace.”

“Truthfully, in all my 15 years at the college, where we had run the gamut of creative programming, I have never seen our students so engaged and receptive to good, sound career advice.”
– Carole Bieber, Former Associate Director of Career Counseling, Sarah Lawrence College

“I saw Lindsey speak at a youth leadership conference when I was a sophomore in college. Her keynote was incredibly engaging. Afterwards I read her book which is a MUST READ for anyone — no matter what stage they are in their career. I wasn’t looking for a job at the time, but I took her advice on writing effective emails, networking and engaging your co-workers. I immediately saw a change in how others reacted to me and respected me at my internship. I came across as very knowledgeable and professional. My work ethic and networking paid off by getting me an interview with a national nonprofit. To prepare for my big interview I sat down and re-read Lindsey’s book. I wrote down questions to ask and over-prepared just as she suggested –- and I got the job!! I truly credit so much of my professional success to taking her advice. Thanks, Lindsey!
– Sara Ann Ferguson, Recent Grad and Program Delivery Coordinator, Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana

“Lindsey was fantastic. She really connected with the students. The information and tips she had really resonated with the audience. I was so happy that she took more time after the event to answer additional questions from students. She was the perfect person to have during our fall welcome week. I know that many students will be putting her tips to use as the semester moves forward.”
- Donna Neal, Assistant Director, Cultural Programming & Student Media, UMASS Boston

“Lindsey presents the right amount of career advice, peppered with humorous anecdotes and examples, that kept the students attentive (and taking notes!) for more than an hour after the end of a day of classes. I don’t know many professionals who could claim that achievement. Lindsey received rave reviews from all of the students who attended, as well as our Vice President, who wrote an email saying it was one of the best student events she attends.”
– Susan Eisman, Career Counselor, Manhattanville College

“Lindsey was a big hit with Bradley University students. She has a very engaging speaking style and manages to keep the full attention of the audience. Lindsey is able to convey job search tips in a way that appeals to today’s students and motivates them to take action immediately. Her presentation was so well received by students and career center staff that we booked her for a return visit to kick-off the fall 2009 semester.”
– Jane Linnenburger, Executive Director, Smith Career Center, Bradley University

“Though I was confident from my first interaction with Lindsey that she would be a dynamic, energetic and knowledgeable speaker, I could never have imagined how positively our students would respond to her presentation. Her vast knowledge about the professional world, use of pertinent (and often amusing) real-world examples, inclusion of stories from her many interactions with recruiters in a variety of industries, and excellent understanding of this generation of students made her tips and suggestions seem relevant and do-able to all of our students!”
– Rachel Greenberg, Assistant Director, Freshman/Alumni Summer Internship Program, MIT

– Rick DelVecchio, Director of Career Placement, Sacred Heart University
