Bill Sims’ love for interviewing began when he graduated from Florida State University landing 7 job offers including top consulting firms such as PWC, Arthur Andersen, and KPMG. He used his experience to teach the art of the interview to underclassmen at FSU and coached several students through the interview process. After 2 years with PWC, Bill served in the Marines Corps for 12 years flying the F/A-18 Hornet. After receiving CJOs from 3 major airlines in 2014, he began teaching his techniques and sharing them with fellow pilots on the base. Bill has several years of experience teaching and interviewing at live seminars, virtual webinars, and 1 on 1 environment. He has individually helped thousands of job seekers land their dream jobs. In addition, he has trained dozens of others to teach the art of interviewing. Bill has a genuine passion for helping people succeed in anything they do.
