Jeff A. – SCC Marketing Campaign leads to Discussions with CEO and ultimately a Managing Director Role
I’m pleased to announce that after months of interviewing, discussions and negotiation, Jeff has started his new position as Managing Director of XXXX Division of XXXX.

He had excellent credentials, having worked at name brand companies and having an MBA from Northwestern, but he knew he needed assistance in packaging, networking and interviewing.
Throughout our work together, Jeff was actively interviewing. XXXX was … Read More
Rob had been in the mix for a positon at XXXX where he got in the very running late and the company told him they already had a candidate but wanted him to wait in the wings.

I’m pleased to announce that Adam has accepted the position of VP of Finance for XXXX, a leading maker of health supplements. He came to us in April after consultation with Oliver Cornell. His current employer was not getting the investment funding it needed to grow; consequently Adam’s growth there was also limited. He sought a position as VP or Director of Finance and preferred to stay in CA. His challenge was in learning to articulate his experience in a way that has value to employers rather than minimizing what he does as “just part of his job.”
We worked on defining his “product” through our worksheet system, then identifying his target audience, developing his packaging for maximum impact, and … Read More
Ron came to us from our Connecticut Office. He had excellent credentials including an MBA from a top school, as well as very impressive quantitative achievements, but he knew nothing about behavioral interviewing. He is a very straight-shooter and direct communicator, and in hindsight he thought he may have gotten taken out of the running in previous interviews without even realizing why.
After completing his resume and SC&C WebFolio©, we spent a great deal of time on interview preparation and practice, culminating in his office visit which included one-on-one time with our senior behavioral interviewer as well as time spent on negotiation strategies and tactics.
Ron was very active in his networking and revised his LinkedIn™ profile based on our … Read More

“My former boss at YYYY applied for the position originally and got through to the final interview stage. While he was interviewing, it became apparent to him that the job did not fit his requirements. However, he thought it was a good fit for me so he passed on the recruiter details to me. He was also one of the references that I … Read More
