Mike had a 20+ year career in city administration and management. His most recent assignment ended when there was a change in elected City Commissioners who terminated his agreement, which is not uncommon in a political environment.
Mike connected with SC&C to explore gaining assistance in his sudden job search. While managing a city was something Mike would certainly consider, he was also interested in exploring opportunities in the private sector, representing an industry change, a challenging task for someone who had single industry experience in the previous two decades.
From the start of his engagement, Mike attacked the tasks required to initially gather the material needed to develop an impactful, value-driven set of marketing materials. After seeing an example of an SC&C developed WebFolio, Mike was highly anticipated his to be completed and posted on line.
In executing his campaign, Mike went full bore; literally, his full time job was his job search. Mike explored the necessary channels in his search including networking, media suggested opportunities, company targeting, recruiters, job boards and others.
As a result of his high level of activity, Mike began to generate interviews, both informational and for specific positions, always seeking the “right” opportunity.
That opportunity was revealed just over two months into his campaign. As Mike put it, “Our hard work is finally reaping some results! I have also distributed my web profile and people are thoroughly impressed! It’s a great tool…”
After successfully completing and competing for the position, Mike was offered the job of City Manager for XXXX. Mike feels the opportunity is terrific as the city is growing and has great potential being in close proximity to major vacation spots.
According to Mike, “The Sky’s the limit!”
Mike brought enthusiasm, discipline and a terrific attitude and the skills needed to conduct a highly successful job search. His Campaign Director said “Mike was very coachable, and responded to requests in a timely manner; he was eager to hit the market and land a new job.” Mission accomplished; well-done Mike.
