Prior to discovering his niche,
Michael Spremulli, The Student Profiler
used to be the worst employee on the face of the
earth! He’d show up late, call in sick,
shirk his job responsibilities – he was
flat out awful. But let’s back up a bit.
Michael entered the workforce
after earning his Bachelor’s and Master’s
degrees in psychology. He worked in a variety
of mental health settings providing counseling
and therapy. He began his career path with a positive
attitude, a desire to positively impact people’s
lives, and a strong motivation to make what he
assumed would be a lucrative living in the mental
health field. But things did not go exactly as
First, he quickly found that the
mental health profession was not nearly as lucrative
as he expected it to be. That was a real bummer.
The next thing that Michael discovered was that
he was spending the majority of his time filling
out paper work, instead of working with clients.
Sometimes, he actually found himself nodding off
during the middle of therapy sessions with his
clients – not a good thing. But wait, there’s
The straw that broke the camel’s
(Michael’s) back, occurred when he was working
for the Georgia Department of Corrections –
yep Michael went to prison – as a counselor
for mental health inmates. For many reasons, this
was the worst place for Michael to be working.
He quickly became de-motivated and transformed
into a horrible employee (see above). The prison
was a poor match with Michael’s abilities,
motivators, and personality. He was miserable,
his wife was miserable, something had to change.
forward Michael’s career here.
Michael eventually built on his
education in psychology, got some advanced training
in the area of personality assessment, formed
Chrysalis Corporation, and began working with
corporations as a personality profiler. He discovered
that he could apply the majority of skills that
he already acquired during his education process
to the corporate world and assist companies in
making better hiring decisions.
Michael currently consults with
companies throughout the United States on a regular
basis to ensure that job applicants have the right
abilities, motivators, and personality for the
position they are applying for. Sometimes referred
to as the “Simon Cowell of personality profiling”,
Michael has a reputation of telling it like it
is. He does not beat around the bush while working
with companies when it comes to discussing an
applicant’s degree of fit with a position.
His direct approach creates a
win/win situation. Companies end up hiring only
the best matched, top-performers, and applicants
are saved the frustration of ending up in a job
that is a poor fit for them and that they will
Here’s the ironic part.
If Michael had access to the information that
he currently uses in his consulting practice when
he was plotting his career path, he would have
saved a tremendous amount of time and money, and
would have avoided most of the frustration he
experienced along the way. That’s what prompted
Michael to bring this critical career information
to college students.
Through his college keynote presentations
and individual consulting, Michael helps college
students determine their “student profile”,
which ultimately translates into their Life Profile.
Once a person discovers their Life Profile and
learns truly what makes them tick, it is much
easier for them to align their abilities, motivators,
and personality traits with a career that they
are passionate about.
To bottom-line it, Michael
helps college students figure out what they want
and discover their ideal career path.
