Sometimes you are lucky enough to meet people that really add character to your own life. Joe Jacobs is definitely one of those people. As soon as you meet Joe he welcome you with a genuine smile and makes you feel right at home. The experience that I had working with Joe has taught me so many skills for the "real world". Everyone wants to be around someone that is motivated and enthusiastic because it rubs off on you! I've not only learned a lot Read More

My summer internship experience would have been completely different if Chau Nguyen wouldn't have been my boss. Chau went beyond the call of duty to treat me like family, instead of an employee. He would help me with any problems I was having, work related or not. When I didn't think that sales was cut out for me Chau gave me the motivation I needed. Without Chau I would have given up when my sales weeks were unsuccessful. The skills he taught me Read More

I was a little apprehensive about getting started in sales, a field I was unsure of, yet after my many pep talks with Joe I always felt ready to face the day. It became more than just a summer job to make money, it became something to change my entire person, it became a matter of wanting to surpass my goals and to impress Joe and show him that I was everything he thought I could be. He motivated me and kept me on course when I was unsure of myse Read More

This past summer I was presented with a wonderful opportunity to sell advertising. In accepting this internship I hoped to merely build my resume and attain sales experience. However, my internship with Joe Jacobs and Chau Nguyen exceeded all expectations and has equipped me with relationships and experience that will serve to my advantage for years to come.

Over the four month period that I worked for Chau Nguyen, my knowledge and capabilities within the world of business grew immeasurably. Chau and I spent countless hours not only talking about business, but personal things as well. I can recount times that he would answer questions as early as 7 am or as late as 11 pm. Chau's positive advice has left me with experiences and information that I am sure I will use for the rest of my career. I am p Read More

Working for Joe Jacobs has definitely been the most rewarding experience for me to this date. Throughout the three months of my internship, Joe served not only as an invaluable manager, but as my mentor as I expanded my sales experience. He pushed me to work hard everyday to succeed as an account manager, and was one of the best supports I could have asked for during my experience. Without him as my motivator, I know I would not have gained the s Read More

While Chau Nguyen was by far the best boss I have had yet, because he was honest, patient, and understanding, he was an even better mentor and friend. Chau really taught me a lot about the world around me and how to bring my best qualities forward. He guided me through all my troubles with a true desire to help me. Everything that I learned through Chau is priceless and has already made an impact in my attitudes towards both school and work. Toda Read More

When I started out my internship this past summer as an account executive, under the direction of Chau Nguyen, I had no idea what I was about to encounter. Although I faced many challenges in the beginning, he helped me every step of the way through it with his sound advice, guidance, and never ending support. Chau inspired me not only as an account executive, but also as a person. I know that not one day would go by that I would regret being und Read More

Working with Joe this past summer was an amazing experience -- without a doubt! Joe Jacobs has taught me many things about myself personally and professionally. He also taught me to never give up and to overcome huge challenges. To me, Joe wasn't only an outstanding boss, but a good friend as well.

Working for Joe Jacobs was one of the best experiences I've ever had and a choice that I will never regret. Joe not only helped me become the best possible sales rep, but helped me become a better person as well. His motivation skills and 'open door policy' management style not only contributed to our relationship but to the organization as a whole. There was not a moment while working with Joe that I did not believe he would go out of his way to Read More

Over the summer, I was given the opportunity to work with Joe Jacobs. I had never been so lucky to have a boss like him. He was always so there for me, considerate and really cared about the progress I was making. Anytime I had a question I could pick up my phone, call him and he would be willing and ready to answer.

I have known Chau Nguyen for 5 years and can truly vouch for his hard work, dedication, and passion for his career. He was my very first mentor and manager, for whom I attribute much of my success today. Chau helped me build my confidence to increase my focus and sales in a constantly changing marketplace. I currently work for a pharmaceutical company and can honestly say that I learned my dedication and enthusiasm from working with Chau 5 years Read More

Intern

Laura Bolton

University of Georgia
Summer of 2005

As I began my internship last May, I did not expect the work-world to offer me someone so connected, motivational, and personable as a boss. I immediately became aware of Chau's dedication to us as account executives and as students through his sincerity and concern for both our work and everyday life. Chau went above and far beyond the call of duty as he daily checked in with us and kept himself readily available for last minute e-mails or 7 A.M Read More

Chau Nguyen was an exceptional manager. I think what stands out the most about Chau is his utmost dedication to me, every other intern, as well as his emotional support through everything. In the very first week of my internship, I was so close to giving up and felt like the pressure and stress was just too much. Chau was right there. He called me right back and talked me through my feelings and focused on some strategies that I could use. He kep Read More

I've often read about how a single person can have a major influence in ones' professional life. I believe for me that person is Chau Nguyen.

Trying to fit my experience with Chau Nguyen into one paragraph is going to be nearly impossible. I started learning from Chau the moment we met? and it has yet to end! I learned more in four days when I was at training than I could have ever learned in a classroom. I continued to learn from him throughout the summer as well. Anytime I had a question or concern, he was always there and guided me through anything and supported me in any situation. Read More

When thinking back to this past summer, there is one part of my experience that stands out against the rest, and that was the guidance I received along the way.

First off I wanted to thank Chau Nguyen for helping me so much this past summer.

I was given the opportunity to work with Joe Jacobs throughout the summer of 2004. I knew then he was a great manager who was extremely charismatic, fair and had a natural talent for sales. However it was not until just recently, as I began my career, that I realized how much I have learned from Mr. Jacobs and how much he has helped to develop me as a person.

Joe Jacobs is a great person to work for. The summer I worked for him was one of the most rewarding summers of my life.

When I first spoke to Joe Jacobs about the internship, he told me "I would learn more working with him in just one summer than I would throughout my whole college career," he wasn't kidding! Joe has taught me more about myself, my capabilities, and life in the real work world than I could have ever learned in college. I am 100% truthful when I say, "I would not be where I am today if I hadn't worked with Joe Jacobs. Right after college, I was abl Read More
