"Jay is part tough love, uncle, part Zen master, and part sales master. He will get you past whatever is holding you back, at the same time getting you to rediscover the skills you have. He will teach you to stay away from the "empty" seat mentality while teaching the skills you need to get back to the work force. The job market has changed and Jay is well suited to guide you thru it. Hire him he is well worth it."
B. Liberman, accountant
"The tools and approaches to today’s radically different job market along with his insight of the challenges faced by today’s job seekers, have allowed me to distinguish myself from the numerous others who relentlessly submit their resumes in the hope of landing an available position. Using Jay’s Alternative Tools, as well as his unique approach to reaching out to decision makers, enabled me to garner the interest of potential employers resulting in far more interviews then what would have been possible had I followed the unproductive, but still widely used practice of simply submitting my resume and hoping for the best. Writing from my own personal experience, Jay’s advice, tools and methods were instrumental in helping me land my new position."
Chuck Jones, Sr, Tax Accountant
"I want to thank you for your outstanding guidance throughout my job search process. You enlightened me to understand that this is an art and a science. You cleared the path for me to find a great job instead of just looking for a place to work because I needed a job. I heard about you at a human resource conference. You were described as the "job guru". Apparently you were assisting laid off executives who experienced the same problems that I had but you were able to guide them to placements that were worthy of their knowledge and experience. With that said, I reached out to you and thankfully, I have found a great job.”
With admiration and thanks,
Lois DiStefano, Director of Sales
I have always been a positive, hard working person and gave my job all I had to give. When I found myself out of a job at 64 years young, it wasn’t a great feeling. Jay is an amazing guy who makes you think out of the box. In today’s world you send out resumes either through Indeed, Glass Door, zip recruiter and a wide host of internet sites. Jay advised ...Don’t go down the same path everyone else is going down. Make yourself different! It took six months of working five days a week job searching. But I am happy to report, I got a job in the field I wanted, the garment center, in the building I have worked in before. I networked to get the job and I was hired because of my experience.

“As a professional recruiter you are able to give real life advice on how to prepare, how to look for, how to interview and how to follow up during the job search process. Although I only attended a few sessions, what I found particularly helpful was:
“Jay's approach to the job hunt, the strategic skills he taught me were the keys to finding a great job after 13 months of being unemployed.”
S. Friedman - Supply Chain - Orange Regional Hospital
“I Just wanted to follow up and let you know that I got the job, Hooray! I start in two weeks, I am very excited, wanted to say thank you! Again thank you! “
Ralph Miranda, Supply Chain
"After being introduced to Jay Lang, President of Hudson Valley Career Development by a friend and colleague, I quickly learned that his expertise and genuine commitment to helping others find careers and live fulfilling lives was an incredible gift. I quickly signed up for his one-on-one coaching services and gained more than career guidance. Jay’s passion for truly tapping into each individual’s inner soul, interests and skills was refreshing and timely in my life. At the time, having worked in higher education for 10+ years, I knew his approach was needed in the University setting. After inviting Jay to Dominican College, he facilitated a workshop for undergraduate students allowing for an interactive and direct approach to career mentoring, coaching and guidance, beyond “finding the right job”. His holistic approach focused on finding your core value, with an emphasis on you as the “whole person”. The students walked away with valuable insight and tools from an experienced executive recruiter, but even more the reassurance to tap into their “whole selves”." - Thanks,
