Dan Moran has spent the last 30 years managing, motivating and developing people from all walks of life. During this time, he has mastered an understanding of what is critical for success in career planning, searching for jobs & opportunities and planning for second careers – or next acts. Dan has assisted several hundred individuals achieve fulfillment in their career or a better job. He has helped people identify their true talents, skills and new options for their career life. “And I love doing this”, stated Dan. “The saying goes – if you do what you love, the money will follow”.
Dan has also mastered an understanding of people. He is a specialist in developing career & leadership skills in people and helping them maximize their potential, improve and achieve their goals. “Everyone has a dream of what they want to do next –- I just help people clarify what it is and then help them achieve their dreams”, added Moran.
Moran has served as a Vice President and Senior Vice President of Human Resources & Administration, Senior Marketing Director, Career Consultant and Business Consultant. He quips, "to consult with businesses, you need to have been there before --- struggling to start, with no money, a payroll to meet and never letting anyone know what was happening".
Dan believes that in order to help others achieve success in their job and career, you must understand what employers are really looking for and how the hiring process works. He has taken sabbaticals from his business to join companies in senior executive roles. Dan continues to build an understanding of what employees seek in candidates and new employees, and delivers this experience to his clients. “But I always return to what I love – helping others”.
It is Dan’s ability to help people realize their life long dreams, and turn these dreams into opportunities that makes him stand out from the rest. “I have found that most suffer from a lack of clarity or focus in pursuing new career opportunities – be it changing jobs or career, starting a new business and other endeavors. Without clarity and focus fear sets in – and that can be paralyzing. I remove the fear with clarity, focus and a plan to achieve goals”.
Dan has appeared on the national broadcast of The Monster Show (www.Monster.com) broadcast in over 100 US markets, American Out of Work (PBS), and was filmed and produced as a job search expert in Job Hunting: The Ten Best Steps to Success.

He is also known as one who cuts to the chase, and one who can be demanding and delivers results. Dan and his wife of over 35 years Vikki, a Vice President of Sales for Capital Region Living Magazine (www.crlmag.com), live on a small “gentleman’s” farm in Brunswick, outside Troy, NY. They lived in the Boston area for a few years, but found they missed the Capital Region and came back. "One needs to leave the area, experience another city, and then you will realize all that you missed about the Capital Region of New York", stated Dan.
