  9. Oh, hi, George, take off your coat, stay a while!

    “Here is an update on my long-term Phase 3 client M.. She landed a job last year with a large hospital system in FL and after about six months realized that she wasn’t happy there and we got back together. M. is looking for a new full-time position, but she began this pesky consulting business in her strong suit, which is executive compensation and total rewards. She has started turning up on LI keyword searches and getting consulting gigs, which she likes.

    In the last two weeks she began: three consulting gigs and today has her 2nd interview with [a member association] for a Dir. of Compensation and Total Rewards position, for which she is clearly very qualified. She wants to balance consulting with a fulltime job to see if the consulting might force her to go into that full time if it continues to grow. Nice position to be in.”
