For over 20 years, Dwayne Miller had been an employee for Anheuser Busch. That changed when InBev came in and let Dwayne and 1,200 of his colleagues go in 2008. While in transition, he began to find advantages in using LinkedIn for his job search. In the summer of 2009, Dwayne started the LinkedIn training program at the Go! Network and he continues to give one-on-one sessions and presentations to help people utilize the networking power of the tool.
In 2009, during his career transition, while re-learning how to find a job, he helped others on their interviewing skills, resume building, networking skills, and how to use LinkedIn as a powerful networking tool. He continues to Pay It Forward by coaching individuals in the job search that ask for it, gives several LinkedIn presentations during the year, and organizes networking events throughout the year.
