              Professor Johannsen's Instructor Bio

              Besides having a number of years teaching at universities, Mr. Johannsen runs his own training and development organization focused on skill set's employers are crying for in the areas of: skill mastery; digital, social media and influencer marketing; and leadership skills.  

              Unlike most full-time professors, he knows what employers want and what student lack when it comes to getting work (and getting better work). Murray has seen it over and over again; bad resumes and poorly written profiles and interviews that fail to impress.

                                                Steps:

                                                1. Choose a public program on this site OR contact us for customized training. 

                                                2. Register and pay for the course of learning.

                                                3. Fill Out Your Profile.

                                                Engage in one or more of our four, six, twelve or sixteen- week courses.

                                                Develop artifacts elated to the work you do in a course. This can be shared on sites like Linkedin as part of your profile.  

                                                Finally, reflect on experience to develop lessons learned.
