Breaking Away Career Preparation


Beat The Competition. Out-Prepare Them!


In 2005 I met Bob Benjamin when I attended his Breaking Away workshop at Trinity College. What I didn't know at the time was that I'd continue to carry Bob's creed with me as I embarked on my own career. Bob is a fantastic resource and his message for young graduates is clear: PREPARE. Do your research. Practice your answers. Know yourself.

I really appreciate you taking the time to speak with our group so frankly, personally, and at length. I must say, your session was the most productive career services event I've attended.

Robert’s experience and success as a college athlete and business professional produce instant credibility with today’s college students and his no-nonsense style during the session really hit home with our players.  The seminar is part motivational speech, part interview training, and part wakeup call on how to prepare for life after college.

After Robert’s presentation I spoke with 4 rowers who were in attendance. To a man, they said it was incredibly helpful.  Most significantly, they each said that they were exposed their weaknesses as interviewees and learned great strategies for improvement. They all said that Robert’s  toughness and directness were eye-opening. The reality of the mood and manner of an interview came across very clearly!  They learned a lot, for sure.

I am writing to offer my endorsement of the workshop presented by Robert Benjamin to the students of Franklin & Marshall College.  From the very beginning of his well-prepared workshop, it was obvious that Mr. Benjamin had developed the program's content with the intent of empowering the students.  He conveyed quite powerfully that obstacles can be overcome through diligence and hard work.
