Offers Received:

1. Ramesh Shivakumaran’s client A. received his first offer in under two months in the program! The company is in the restaurants, food & beverage business, and he would be a chief officer. He is currently in the manufacturing sector. Ramesh notes, “A. obtained a referral for this opportunity from one of his social capital contacts, and he was then introduced to the CEO/Owner of this family-owned business. The owner / hiring company made an offer within two days of the interview; however, the client has decided not to accept the offer due to significant gap in his expectations and the hiring company’s work culture not being aligned with his requirements.

The owner of the hiring company has again reached out to A. to reconsider to work as an external consultant/advisor instead of joining as a full-time employee. The client is expected to decide on the consulting opportunity as an interim arrangement until he lands his desired opportunity without relocation. Overall, client A. is very pleased with the outcome of the various leads and nominations obtained through social capital conversations.”

Going to talk to him this week when I am at [sports organization] and see if we can come to an agreement. THIS has been such a long time coming, one year as a consultant and many iterations of offer from parent company!” Found from Unpublished Market 1: Social Capital.

Recruiter Interview

1. Barbara Limmer’s client D. at a staffing company for CFO from a 3rd party Recruiter. Client got the interview with this recruiter after having our team tweaked his resume and applying for it online.


-From Barbara Limmer for Ramsey Penegar:
“Ramsey Penegar always recognizes her team in your Wed report, and I wanted to recognize her for being so helpful and flat out amazing in supporting the Consultants and our clients. Here is one example of her “amazingness” that occurred earlier this week:

“My client S. was concerned when she ran her tweaked resumes through a website that will compare a resume to a job posting and give it a score based on keyword relevancy (but what they really want is to sell you their services).

Ramsey did an in-depth comparison of her writer’s tweaked resume, on both this website and a tool she and her team use, and then gave me a comprehensive write up, including images from her comparison tool, that I could send to my client to put her mind at ease.

I just wanted to give a shout out to Ramsey, because she is truly an amazing resource for all of us!”
