1. “The resume team has been busy developing the first LinkedIn Experience narratives & stories and they are producing some GOOD stuff! In the last 30 days, the team has completed 95 writing tasks. Marissa Lessman is the “heavyweight” for that timeframe! Marissa volunteered as the first to tackle the new LinkedIn Experience task and did a fantastic job!” – Ramsey Penegar, CPRW

2. Paula Nordhoff shares this complement that came from an individual that works with a health company, “She complimented me on my LI profile. Thank you and the writers for all the hard work! She said it showed and the time was well spent, so many don’t spend time making sure it reflects their jobs and it did reflect what I do so well and she could tell I spent time on it.”

3. H. had many kind things to say about his experience with The Barrett Group.

“My original CV was everything it should NOT be: chronological, long, and boring. With Greg Emslie and The Barrett Group writing team, we made a wonderful new version,” said H. “My LinkedIn profile was also boring and incomplete, but with the help of Greg and Dan Resendes, my new profile attracted a lot more people, sometimes over 20-30 people per week. I started getting calls from people that were not even looking to hire, even some CEOs. That gave me hope!” Even more valuable to H. were the techniques he learned for managing his career change and the perspective he got from his career consultants about navigating the modern job market.

“Greg taught me a lot of things. He told me about social capital – how to increase it and leverage it – and new ways to approach people. All these techniques were very handy,” said H. “And the conversations I had with Greg and Anne Lipsitz helped me see through the attitudes and behaviors of third-party recruiters. I learned that third-party recruiters aren’t there to give me a job. Their money comes from the company that wants to fill a position, and recruiters couldn’t care less whether it’s you or someone else that gets hired.”

“I will no longer let a third-party recruiter tell me what to do and what not to do. It’s my job search. The direction I got from my Barrett Group consultants gave me strength to face the daily job search and never lose confidence in myself.”

H. credits The Barrett Group with infusing his job search with crucial practical as well as emotional support.

“Before I began working with The Barrett Group, I had been out of a job for ten months with nothing to show for it except frustrating experiences and a feeling that I was too old. I learned a lot from Greg and Anne. Thanks to them, I felt better able to handle recruiters, and I developed the confidence that, even at my age (61), I can expect great opportunities.”

4. R. expressed this to Isabelita Castilho: “Thank you for the last two sessions that I found exciting and explorers. I felt like I was discovering new islands “in places” I thought I knew well. 🙂 For which I thank you very much. I look forward to the following sessions and further support.”

5. This appeared in our Better Business Bureau listing, where we have maintained an A+ rating for over 20 years: “Comment on Customer Review:
The Clarity Program through the Career Change Program was an OUTSTANDING experience. I was impressed with all of The Barrett Group processes; they were so easy to follow… The processes taught me something about myself that I did not realize, “I do not know everything about finding a new career.” From LinkedIn Analytics to revising my resume, to revisiting my LinkedIn Profile, through the Interview Preparations, to the strategy of accepting an offer, and finally landing a sweet new career. I am very thankful for The Barrett Group, LLC., and the help they provided me throughout all of their processes! The Barrett Group processes made me a better person, professionally and personally.
Review by S.”
