DOVER - The Dover Public Library will be hosting a free community program featuring author Dan Muller on Thursday, May 30th, at 6:30 pm in the library's Community Room. 

Muller is the author of the new book "Changing Collars: Lessons in Transitioning From Blue-Collar Roots to White-Collar Success." This instructional memoir focuses on helping and enabling blue-collar Americans to succeed in their white-collar careers with Muller drawing upon his own experiences growing up in a blue-collar family and in his 35 years of gradually learning the ropes and eventually climbing the corporate ladder in a white-collar world.

"Changing Collars" provides deeply insightful and practical lessons about the significant differences between blue-collar and white-collar cultures and mores, as well as highlighting the common misunderstandings that blue-collar candidates have about the white-collar world. The lessons are meaningful, readily applicable and entertaining for anyone who is employed, or will be employed, in the white-collar world, and who is searching for new tools and the keys to future white-collar career success.

Daniel Muller is the president and CEO of his own consulting company, DEM Consulting, an Information Technology and Strategy consulting firm. He graduated from Kent State University in 1979 with a BBA majoring in computer science and operations research, and with an MBA in 1990, graduating Summa Cum Laude in both degrees. He retired in 2014 after a successful 35-year career in the manufacturing industry. He currently lives in Massillon, near his early hometown of Brewster, Ohio. He has won various state and local awards, including being named CIO of the Year in Northeast Ohio, as well as being inducted into the Fairless High School Hall of Honor in 2016.
