Orlando was invited to speak to one of our graduating classes here at Lincoln Technical Institute, in regards to what employers are looking for in new hires. He did a great job, he is accurate, articulate, very engaging and the students, aka graduates, really enjoyed having him on campus.


Sharon Cologero I Director of Career Services at Lincoln Technical Institute

Orlando came and spoke to a group of our students about professionalism in job searching. In his presentation he talked about both general job searching as well as working with recruiters. He discussed professional dress and proper speaking, utilizing humor to get his point across. The students were very focused on his presentation and seem to have a much better understanding of professionalism and what is expected during their search for a job in their fields of study. I hope to bring Orlando back to speak again.

I had the pleasure of working with Orlando Haynes during his tenure at Ultimate Medical Academy. I have always been impressed by his genuine attentiveness, enthusiasm, communication skills and professional demeanor. He was an excellent human resources partner and helped me tremendously in expanding the departments I was responsible for, as well as assisting me with my human resource needs. He is extremely conscientious, dedicated and has excellent knowledge of recruitment, placement, interviewing. He was a much-needed support to the business and add value.
