Brian has accepted the position of Territory Manager at XXXX. This is an exciting position for Brian and falls dead center in his experience and career interest sweet spot. The company is a newer name in North America, although in Europe, they have the #1 position in their industry niche. They decided to go direct in North America by adding 4-5 sales reps. It has been a family-owned company for 160 years, and its expansion of US markets gives Brian a lot of upside potential.
Brian was approached for this position by a recruiter who is extremely well connected in the space and who had placed all the senior sales leadership for the company. After preparing for, then working through … Read More
Here is a note from a former client to Bill Temple (his coach) and Fred Coon. “I had to reach out to the both of you personally, because Bill’s coaching, teaching and SC&C’s methods were instrumental in finding and ultimately landing the CFO position with XXXX.
After I was employed the first time when I used SC&C, I have used the same tactics over the years. In fact, they were a key factor in landing my latest position. A banker that I bounced from a company 11 years ago has stayed in touch professionally. My resume and web profile crossed his desk last summer impressing him and his team. The owners of XXXX have known this same now-former banker turned … Read More

They had just completed relocation from overseas. Believe it or not, he had previously accepted a COO position with another company, while his XXXX candidacy was still under consideration.
I counseled him in great detail, especially on his XXXX negotiations, and aside from a signing bonus (which he and I worked on as something to be added to his base salary); he received everything else he asked for. In my placement follow-up conversation he revealed the following:
-increased the $225K base offer to $252K ($87K+ … Read More

It is my great pleasure to announce that Helen V. has formally accepted and is now working as the CEO for XXXX, a commercial, for profit, clothing manufacturer that will be selling products produced by women overseas, as part of a program to generate funds for a sister non-profit organization. The non-profit organization provides start-up funds so women can become employed in their own business ventures. The support gives them a track record so that the small business can then qualify for micro credit loans from regional banks.
This position came about from a networking connection in China, who knew of the founder of the non-profit and thought Helena might be a good connection for her. Helen wanted to leave … Read More

Here is a note from Bill Temple about Jason’s job search campaign. Jason came to SC&C as part of an outplacement arrangement with his company. Jason’s background is in IT and Operations management and he wanted to stay tightly aligned with these two areas of interest.

He also wanted to explore several options before making his choice in a new employer.
Working with Bill, Jason developed a very clear, concise and compelling story both in written form through his resume and his online … Read More
Here is a note from Bill Temple about Dennis. He became a client because the business that he had established had to close down due to the constriction of the economy. He wanted to explore where he might go both inside and outside his industry segment (furniture manufacturing) and did not really know where to start.
Working with his coach, Dennis built a very compelling personal story, summarized in, and communicated through, his SC&C WebFolio. His focus was about building successful business operations, irrespective of the industry segment, but the reality of the world is that companies look first at those with direct experience, no matter how transferable the abilities of an individual might be.
Being a realist, Dennis … Read More
Here is a note from Barbara Limmer, Mike’s coach. “I just got off the phone with Mike and I am pleased to report that he has accepted an offer. He will begin his new position at XXXX in two weeks.

Also, he wanted to transition into a senior IT role, ultimately becoming either CIO or CTO. His new position as ILM Architect, positions him perfectly for the next move in his career – a CTO/CIO role. During his hiring interviews they told him they will groom him for the CIT … Read More

Within two weeks he was offered and accepted the position! This new move advances him two levels up within XXXX. He is now an Executive Director. He completely bypassed one level, Managing Director, and continues his rise in the company.
His new role puts him into … Read More
