THE HIRING LINE:
- Dan coached Paula’s client E. through the extensive negotiation process with a nutritional supplement manufacturer, and she ended up snagging a $5K sign on bonus and a $15K relocation bonus, which E. described as “huge!” considering she starts working remotely. You did it again, Dan!
- Anne to Dan:
“I just saw that R. landed at a large national retailer as District Manager. That’s great news!”
That was a hard-won campaign. Great teamwork during a historic drop in retail!
- B. wowed the principals over at an investment firm, including Waffles’ contact, their Head of Business Development. Julie, B.’s consultant:
“Looks like the deal went through! Executive Chairman at a telecommunications company is B.’s new position!”
- Julie pulled Waffles in for the complex negotiations for C.’s acceptance for the position of President for a service provider. C. has already installed his best guy for VP of Sales and Marketing. The service will come to your hospital or school. You clear the room and they bring in the machine with the patented atomized fluid that will disinfect every surface of the room in 40 minutes. The spray is micron-sized and is smaller than the Coronavirus, it’s 100% effective, biodegradable, and leaves no residue! Right place, right time: you go, C.!
- C. is working with Dan and Julie and recently entered the hiring process at an American worldwide banking and financial services company; they are preparing an offer as we speak.

“Hi Paula (and Waffles) This is my week!
Great News #1: On Sunday, I received an (undefined) job offer from a former colleague who is now the CEO of the national office of [a nonprofit providing disability services] based here in [the Midwest]. I’ll have to interview with 2 or 3 of her other staff, but it should be a formality.
Great News #2: I just finished my third interview with [a family child care business on the West Coast]. The recruiting firm called me 30 minutes later to say I’m onto the next round.”

- V. to Rick Gelber (Senior Career Consultant):
I did want to drop you a thank you note for getting me started with The Barrett Group to help me find my next adventure. I did have a great coaching session with Kristin and now with Julie.
When this started, I was a little apprehensive about the slow start and different modules. After going through the Clarity coaching and now talking to Julie, I feel it is important to be patient and move forward with a good baseline that will help me find the next big step in my career.
Hoping to have a long-term relationship with The Barrett Group.
