Thanks for the guidance and coaching!”

Comp tipped the scale at $170k. Lori notes: “F. worked for the company early on in his career. He has a passion for the brand. The company is a hedge fund company that bought up the previous chains. They are looking to revive the brand which is already present in other major companies.

“F. applied to the role and was one of the candidates. However, when the interview was approaching, the company hired a new President, so the hiring halted. Being interested in the role, F. reached out a few weeks later to HR, whom he had contact with, and when he did, she said, ‘Your timing is perfect, as we are looking to fill the role we put on hold.’ F. was the perfect candidate, and because he executed the TBG process, he was hired! He said I must have the golden touch because this happened to him the last time we worked together (he had four offers over a weekend and had his pick of the litter!) But I insisted it was a combination of F.’s diligence in the process and coaching that landed him the role! Congratulations, happy for you, F.!”

He comes prepared and is always available. And if you seem to be going down a wrong path, he makes you take a step back and think.” And “The three of us sat down to talk and Waffles asked pointed questions. We drilled down to some areas to be mindful of during an interview.”
