Frank has been recognized as recipient of the Gartner CIO Choice Award, Visionary Award from Business Finance Magazine & Internet World, and the Ovation Award at Comnet. Frank was named a visionary for his 12 years of work at AT&T Bell Labs and has a patent for Smart Card Technology. Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, Frank wanted to help those who lost their jobs due to the tragedy and formed a group, The Breakfast Club NJ (TBCNJ). More than 18 years later, TBCNJ has grown to more than 6,000 members and is the premier job search and career networking group in the New York/New Jersey region. As TBCNJ extensively leverages social media, many of the job posts and career transition advice routinely go viral and TBCNJ has helped more than 9,000 individuals secure jobs all with a “pay-it-forward” volunteer approach. Frank is very proud to capture many of the learnings from 18 years of TBCNJ and share them through this book in hopes that even more people will be helped with their respective job search as we all work through the challenges of today’s digital disruption and reskilling.
