Sarah, Nashville

Sarah was in a desperate situation: her company had decided to relocate from Nashville to Tallahassee. All three of her children were in high school and her husband owned his own company locally, so relocating was out of the question. She had a great job as Vice President of Marketing, but now, after 22 years, she was in unfamiliar and scary territory of the unemployed.

When she engaged The Barrett Group, she was beside herself because her job search was going nowhere. Once The Barrett team engaged with her to set her up with the modern ways of attacking both the published and unpublished Job markets, her job Search activity really started to pick up.

When her first interview came, she was fully coached and ready. She was getting steady calls from recruiters, and offers came. She worked with her Barrett Coach to devise a winning negotiation strategy with these offers.

Desperate no more, she loves her new job and is making a good deal more money with the new company!
