Chuck L., Rhode Island
Chuck came to us after a difficult departure from his company. He was in a very frustrated state of mind both because he was forced to leave what he considered an ideal job at a high level of compensation, and he had no idea how to market himself.
He started his search the way most people do, but the internet job boards produced less than desirable results, and no recruiters were interested in him. He was almost embarrassed to use his network, as he didn’t feel comfortable having to defend why he left his past role.
He finally hired The Barrett Group. We created a search strategy that suited his needs focused on his industry of choice. We recognized that his networking skills were very strong; it was his confidence level that needed a bump. We showed him a different way to penetrate his circle of influence that started producing results.
Since he was previously employed by an international firm that was a great fit for his skill set, we did some specific research on other locations throughout the world, something he hadn’t considered. Before long, he had interviews, landed a position and increased his compensation to over $1.4 million. He credits The Barrett Group with getting his career back on track!
