Who is Gail Frank?
MARKETER – WRITER – TRAINER – SPEAKER
THE WORK STUFF
Gail Frank is a career services professional who offers outplacement workshops, resume writing, and interview training for individual job seekers and small companies. She is passionate about teaching women the job search skills they need to land the job they deserve, without feeling isolated or stressed.
Audience members find her to be an engaging and funny speaker who gives motivational talks/keynotes and informative workshops to groups, clubs and associations. Participants walk away from her programs with a renewed sense of energy, a fresh perspective, new information, and a roadmap to take action.
Because one is not enough (!), she is a doubly certified resume writer (NCRW & CPRW), as well as a Certified Job Coach (JCTC) and Certified Employment Interview Professional (CEIP). Blessed with the Irish gift of gab, she is also certified as a Professional Teleclass Leader through Teleclass International.
Gail is a Harvard graduate with a degree in Economics, and has a 10-year corporate background in Brand Management, Marketing & Operations for Procter & Gamble and BIC Corporation.
With her insistent thirst for knowledge, she went after a masters degree in Adult Education/Corporate Training and spent 10 years as a trainer and consultant for global outplacement firm DBM. She then was asked to create and deliver high-power “Job Search Webinars” to unemployed professionals via RiseSmart’s national outplacement programs. These highly-praised webinars tackled tough job search issues such as networking, salary negotiation and career fairs, and brought them to life with amusing yet informative stories and action-oriented comprehensive workbooks.
Gail’s work has appeared in several top-selling resume and cover letter books. Along with writing and producing an E-newsletter titled “Frank Talk on Careers,” she has been a monthly featured columnist on the top job search site Careerbuilder.com.
THE BIGGER PICTURE
Committed to giving back, Gail developed and administered volunteer training and tripled Silent Auction sales results for fundraising events at the nonprofit Centre for Women. The Centre responded by making her “Volunteer of the Year.”
The Junior League of Tampa selected Gail as “Active Member of the Month” for her work in bringing pet therapy to a volunteer project at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital. She and her team visited sick kids, cancer patients, siblings and families and brought crafts, a wet nose and a smile to those having a tough day.
In 2010, she was inducted in the Lowell High School Athletic Hall of Fame in her hometown of Lowell, Massachusetts. Singled out for her talent, leadership, enthusiasm and results in swimming and track & field, and Harvard College varsity letters in water polo, Gail Reynolds Frank joined 20 other women and 109 men in this elite club.
UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL
Gail lives in Tampa with her husband Gary and their two furiously cute kids, Sarah and Ryan. In between finding fun new ways to enjoy motherhood and helping clients, she tries very hard to squeeze in time for reading and swimming laps.
