Here is a note from our client. “After 20+ years working in Direct to Consumer businesses, my position was eliminated and I found myself looking for a job for the first time in 20+ years. I thought I could figure out how to do that by myself and was personally embarrassed to find myself in this position, so felt uncomfortable staying in touch with other peers still employed.
After more than 6 months of going it alone, I came across Stewart, Cooper & Coon after a direct reach out from a remarkable person, Oliver Cornell. Mr. Cornell was instrumental in gaining my trust in working with an organization such as Stewart, Cooper & Coon and provided some positive affirmation as to my ongoing value in the business marketplace.
I began a very well-choreographed process of providing my experience and accomplishments in a manner that would allow them to be configured into an impressive marketing piece to make myself more competitive in the job market. The process in Stewart, Cooper & Coon included lengthy efforts with a very patient, experience sage adviser, Bill Temple, who helped me regain some of my lost self-confidence while helping me to craft a “WebFolio” version of my skills, accomplishments and “stories” about accomplishments in a succinct format that would be easy to view in a graphical view or drill down option for more detailed view. That use of technology was a giant leap away from the “sending of resume” process that I had been trying to no avail.
In addition, SC&C took me through an extensive interviewing process with videotape and feedback to better prepare me to market myself in today’s environment. They also walked me through the analytics of how most people in my position actually end up finding their next position. After months of following their recommendations, learning to believe in myself more and working the tools they had put at my disposal, I found a new position that not only puts me back at the executive level that I was at previously, but ends up putting me into a business opportunity with equity that provides so much more reward than the “person behind the desk” positions that I had held previously.
I will be forever grateful and have long since let go of the “surprise” that I felt as I watched their recommendations and efforts craft a significantly “new and improved” version of myself much better ready to compete in today’s business environment. They have an effective, impressive and successful business operation that yielded excellent results in my case.”
