Mike Komives

Throughout his business career, working at Procter & Gamble and as a consultant to Johnson & Johnson, BCBSNC, PepsiCo, IBM, Unisys and other major companies, Mike realized that people in transition regularly asked his assistance. And he loved helping them.  Now he’s doing this full-time.

Founder of his own Triangle-based firm since 2007, he has created, developed and directed programs for employees of companies, universities and local government in the RTP area. 

As an Adjunct Professor at Durham Technical Community College, he developed and teaches courses and workshops on Job Search Strategies, LinkedIn, Job Seeking Skills, Resume Writing, Networking, and Interviewing. He received a 2014 Excellence in Teaching Award from Durham Technical Community College.

He founded and leads the JOBS NETWORK ministry at St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Chapel Hill; presented at Step-Up Ministry, Colonial Baptist, White Memorial Presbyterian, and other networking groups; conducted workshops at Alamance Orange Correctional Center; and volunteers at Orange County Homeless Project, and the Horizons Residential Program / UNC.
