I decided to change jobs at the beginning of one of the worst recessions in our country’s history. It was also the first time I had to actually think about how to market myself and my skills.
The Barrett Group helped me direct my search, and provided me with a terrific resume. They taught me how to accentuate my accomplishments and sell myself, something I had no idea how to do.
The resume was put together so well that I actually got a number of interviews based on my response to online postings. In addition to the resume, my advisors at The Barrett Group provided me with intense interview preparation and training. We went through the interview process, and I learned what questions to expect, how to prepare my responses, what questions I should be prepared to ask myself, and how to make sure that I made a good impression with my interviewers. Their tips were right on. I felt extremely prepared during the interview process.
Finally, once I had an offer in hand, my advisors worked with me to understand how my offer compared with other professionals at my same level in similar industries. All in all, it took about six months for me to land the job I was hoping for. And I am very thankful for all the help I received to get to this point.
