Here is a note from his SCC Campaign Director, Barbara Limmer. “Charles is placed. He was an Outplacement Services client sent to us for assistance, because we had placed five other senior managers and executives from that company within the last year.
Charles came to us having departed his company, due to unique and sophisticated circumstances that required careful explanation. He was also was very concerned that for years he had put his heart into the development of that company and now, he wondered if there would ever be the chance to create that same type of growth and involvement.
Charles had an immediate challenge. He needed an effective way to answer the “reason for leaving” interview question, and also assistance in articulating his successes in business, rather than legal terms. We worked on defining his successes, both on his packaging as well as verbally in interviews, and the week following his Phoenix experience, he went on a whirlwind tour and had multiple sets of interviews with three different companies.
After only 6 weeks in our program, he completed highly successful negotiations and accepted a position that provides him with a better work/life balance than he previously had, at a base salary that is 10% higher than the maximum he was originally told was possible and is now a senior member of a growth driven company.
He has achieved all of his search goals: a growth company, a chance to participate at senior management levels, a creative work environment and the company recognizes his unique skills and he is fully engaged in applying them at this writing.
Title: Compliance Counsel
Comp: 165,000 + (up from original offer of $155,000)
Other: $10,000 signing bonus

In his own words Charles says, “Barbara, I will ensure that my former HR VP who recommended SC&C and others are aware of the quality support and excellent service and assistance that I received from you and SCC.”
A Follow Up Note From Charles After A Week At His New Job:
“Searching for a new senior level position is always a challenge. I was fortunate to have Barbara assigned to me as my Consulting Campaign Director from SC&C. She is extremely personable & knowledgeable, and more importantly, understands people and has that rare quality of making me feel as I am her most important client. She led me through the process and steps necessary to build my resume and portfolio, always quick to respond to my inquiries. She also quickly and thoroughly responded to my general questions about the recruiting process, as well as advised me on general situations that came up during this period. Her experience in the personnel/staffing/HR area is valuable.
When I traveled to Phoenix to go through my in-person interview and consulting support, Barbara made me feel comfortable, while she and the rest of the team efficiently and effectively took me through the assignments. I cannot say enough about how beneficial it has been to me to work with someone like Barbara. I highly recommend her, as well as SC&C.”
