SPEAKER BIO As the trailblazer behind WinTheView’s powerful suite of online career advancement tools, Founder & President Ken Diamond has developed a winning formula for job-search success that has helped thousands of candidates land interviews and life-changing job offers. It all started with Digital Action, Inc., an award-winning executive search firm Ken launched in 1995 to recruit top talent for corporate clients in print and digital communications, technology, pharmaceuticals, and medical imaging. Leveraging a high-performance career in high-tech sales and management for industry-leading companies in digital graphics and digital printing, Ken has spearheaded the firm’s recruitment success for more than two decades, achieving double-digit growth and earning recognition as one of the fastest-growing companies in the Philadelphia area by the Wharton Small Business Development Center. Through his work with Digital Action, Ken discovered that going above and beyond to prepare candidates for interviews significantly improved his placement rate. By coaching candidates to create their own robust and visually compelling interview presentations, career success stories, online portfolios – and other materials to support their candidacy for relevant job opportunities – he helped them exude confidence, demonstrate motivation, and articulate their potential for achievement to prospective employers. It also provided them with highly persuasive leave-behind materials for hiring teams to consider in making their final decisions. Thus WinTheView was born. Today, Ken adds value to WinTheView’s offerings, staying abreast of the latest technologies and exploring new markets and applications to add value for job candidates, corporate clients, career coaching consultants, recruiters, and other partners.
