Speaker: Emmanuel Toutain, CEO of Terefic – A Terrific Tool to Land That Interview and Let Employers Know How Great You Are, and It’s Free
This Friday’s speaker brings a solution to a problem: How can you impress an employer with the stellar references you may have from your former employers from the beginning of your job search, not at the end after an offer has been made? The solution lies with his entrepreneurial company, Terefic.
Emmanuel Toutain created Terefic in 2011 in order to solve a specific reference problem. He came up with the idea of online job references when he tried unsuccessfully to get a performance bonus for an unpaid international intern at his company. After receiving a definite no, Emmanuel felt compelled to find something else to show gratitude to the intern for his good work. He offered to serve as a reference. However, he knew that the chances that a prospective employer would call from overseas to speak with him were very slim. The internet was the solution.
Emmanuel is also a fervent triathlete. He qualified and made it to the Ironman 70.3 world championship in 2010 and 2012. Emmanuel was part of Team USA’s triathlon team (M35-39) at the 2011 ITU world championship.
Emmanuel was born in Paris. He has been living in the United States for more than 10 years. He holds an MBA degree from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.

This presentation will take place this Friday, May 24 during the regular Launch Pad Job Club meeting from 10:00-11:30 at the Capital City Events Center, 6700 Middle Fiskville Road, suite 403, corner of MF and Huntland.
New members should arrive at 9:15 for New Member Orientation to be held 9:30-10:00. This meeting is free of charge and open to all.
Also this Friday: Your Power Years, presented by Dennis Snead
Dennis Snead, longtime LPJC Board Member and cookie provider, is also a very knowledgeable financial planner.
This Friday, June 14, he will reprise his excellent, informative, and often hilarious presentation called Your Power Years that discusses the changing demographics of the workplace and how to prepare for these changes financially.
I have seen this presentation multiple times and have learned something useful with each viewing. We strongly recommend that you attend this presentation at some point (Dennis offers it about 3 times a year).
Dennis will deliver this presentation from approximately noon-1:15 p.m. following the regular Launch Pad meeting in the same place, the Capital City Events Center, 6700 Middle Fiskville Road, suite 403. The presentation is free and open to the public, so if you’d like to invite anybody else to the event, you certainly can.
And another thing: Resume Tweaking
This is our triple whammy day. As is our tradition, the second Friday of the month is Resume Tweaking Day.
Bring 5 copies of your resume to the Consulting Solutions.Net office at 1016 La
Posada, room 297 at 2:00 pm. Your resume will be critiqued and tweaked by a
small group of your peers. I will also be available as a resource. These
sessions normall last until around 4:30.
Our Ph.D. resume expert, Courtney, will NOT be there this Friday; she intends to
show up as usual in July.
The above mentioned office building is directly behind the Doubletree Hotel on
I-35N. This is almost directly across the interstate from where Launch Pad holds
its Friday meetings.
June: Crystal Dyer, President and CEO of Professional Coaching Consultants - “It’s All about You”
June 28: Diana Lowe, Trainer and Business Performance Consultant with Dale Carnegie Training
