Alec P., Colorado

Alec was following our guided plan to expand his circle of influence, capitalizing on his background in IT consulting and media. He was networking with a Connecticut based firm that did consulting for ESPN.

Closely following our methods, the conversation was turned into a referral to an emerging opening at ESPN. Our assistance in the interview process enabled Alec to become a strong finalist for the position, but ESPN preferred to hire a local candidate. The referring network connection was so impressed they hired him to establish their West Coast operations.

He is now Senior Vice President and hiring staff for the new office, with a total compensation package exceeding $200K.
