Why Thomas Donohue Pays It Forward, in his own words
The main reason I prepare and distribute this list of monthly and weekly updates of networking events, is because when I was in transition, a lot of people in these transition support groups, including Rod Colon, helped me. This is my way of paying it forward.
Hopefully, those in transition are benefiting from knowing about these meetings at the various transition support groups, and are able to take advantage of them by attending and learning the skills necessary to land a job as soon as possible. As far as time goes, I probably put in 6 to 10 hours per week preparing and distributing the list of upcoming networking events.
