After 22 years in the financial services industry, I found myself desiring a change in employment. The Barrett Group took me on as a client in the fall of 2008 just as the financial services industry collapsed and thousands of professionals began looking for employment. It was a frustrating and frightening time for me: I felt as though my whole world had come crashing down on me. The Barrett Group provided me tools and contacts to consider alternative careers, they researched contacts in companies I was interested in and sent introduction letters, they prepared an excellent resume customized for each job search and coached me before and after each interview. Most importantly, Dan Resendes, my counselor, met with me by phone every week and was always positive and supportive. He gave me the confidence and hope to continue the search until I found the perfect position. The Barrett Group continues to reach out and provide coaching and support as I build my new career. I would not be in the position I am today without their services.
