Augustine will discuss themes from his book “How Hard Are You Knocking?” which Amazon.com named one of the “Best Career Business Books.”
“Mr. Augustine’s presentation will benefit students because it is timely and relevant,” said Kristin Williams, director of the College of Business Administration’
Augustine, whose focus is career development and corporate growth, has written books featured on ABC, FOX and NBC and reviewed in USA Today, the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune. He has made presentations to more than 400 organizations in the United States. Augustine is also an editorial contributor to Inc. Magazine, Fast Company and Monster.com, discussing people strategies of successful organizations.
“His talk provides practical ‘know how’ on taking charge of your job search,” said Cathy DuBois, associate dean of Kent State’s College of Business Administration. “Mr. Augustine provides a realistic view of the search process and a clear roadmap of tasks needing an investment of time.”
“Tim’s outlook on many situations is different than the average person, and I feel his way of thinking should be adopted by more people in the business world,” said Eric Andes, a Kent State finance student and president of Delta Sigma Pi.
Augustine earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing and speech communications from Kent State and a master’s degree in business administration from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. Augustine served as an adjunct professor teaching marketing at Illinois Institute of Technology’s Stuart School of Management in Chicago.
“It’s always useful for our students to hear from successful alumni – it provides great role models for them and encourages them to set high goals,” DuBois said.
