Our clients work hard, so we like to celebrate them when they find what they seek—typically a new executive assignment. Lately, though, the celebration is getting to be exhausting because so many clients are landing or receiving offers—more than fifty in the past four weeks!
In a way, that’s not surprising. After all, that is what we do at the Barrett Group: we help executive clients clarify t…
INDUSTRY UPDATE- Information Technology
Information Technology – US and EU/UK
The critical importance of Information Technology (IT) in business is obvious in the meantime.

Pay for help finding a job? Really?
What an absurd notion, right? You may be thinking, “I do my own car repair, fix my own roof, manage my own stock portfolio, self-diagnose my illnesses, act as my own fitness trainer, and never need to consult a vet when I’m doctoring the cat.”

We will provide more details in our weekly Hi…
INDUSTRY UPDATE: Financial Services

Do you know how to use LinkedIn to its fullest? One of the steps in our executive career change process is to help clients expand their networks. We help our clients learn to effectively communicate—particularly on LinkedIn.
So let’s review the contents of my LinkedIn messages and see who we’ll respond to and who we’ll relegate to the spam folder, shall we? [Admittedly, I’ve left off some of t…
