About the Author

Gary W. Capone

I am co-founder of Palladian International, an executive recruiting firm specializing in Manufacturing, Distribution and Defense Industries.  Prior to starting Palladian, I held positions with Target Corporation, Raymond James, Kforce, Newell-Rubbermaid and PriceWaterhouseCoopers.  I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with two degrees, one in Mechanical Engineering and the other from the Wharton School of Business in Accounting.

Since we started Palladian in 2005, we have provided our candidates with resume writing and interviewing advice.  At the start of 2008, we decided to expand on this and offer more resources, a suite of services and more comprehensive advice, while making these resources available to anyone – not just candidates we represent.  This led me to start the Palladian Career Resources Blog.  I write daily and am focused on providing advice, tips and tools that will make a job seeker more successful in their search.

As a recruiter at Kforce and Palladian, I have watched candidates continue to make the same mistakes and sabotage their career searches.  My goal for the blog is to provide specific action-oriented advice that will help a person avoid these mistakes.

I currently reside in Waynesboro, VA with my wife and daughter.
