A Random Selection of Success Stories


Troy Y Now Business Manager /Operations Analyst in Southeast for Minority Owned Management Consulting Firm-- Sees Growth and Advancement-- Praises SET Team, Resources, Campaign Manager Gerry B



 Reporting to the President/CEO, Troy will assist and support senior management in a staff capacity by analyzing business or operating procedures, production, finance, marketing, HR and other work. He'll also coordinate office services such as budget preparation and control, purchasing, equipment utilization, records control and management studies and reports.

 He succeeded in his goals, and offered this about the job and SET:

     "My main reason for acceptance with this company is due to its diverse work force and job functions, as well as room for growth and advancement. I decided that I needed to relocate in order to find a new job that was outside my primary area of expertise. My team was a great resource, as well as all of the detailed out-of-state job information."

 Troy credited almost all of SET's resources as being helpful. These included the resumes and letters, the website for several purposes, the communication strategy, the Industry Characteristics Profile, suggestions for career and industry options, the resume distributions, solutions for concerns, ongoing services from his entire team, the support he got from Campaign Manager Gerry B, and more.


Kinston Y Now $300,000 VP Propane for Leading Energy and Grain Based Foods Company in Upper Midwest--Likes Growth, Good Chemistry, Industry Expansion, Compensation, Location--Praises SET Technology, Rapid Research, Marketing Director Ken J



 Reporting to the EVP and COO Energy, Kinston will lead, manage and ensure least cost operations, value added marketing, market dominance, and optimized profitability within the propane department, including the wholesale propane and propane equipment businesses.

 He'll also provide strategic and operational leadership direction for production, procurement, risk management, transportation logistics, marketing, advertising and promotion, sales, safety, and regulatory compliance communication related to propane to member cooperatives, corporate propane plants, regional cooperatives, and independent propane marketers. He's highly pleased with the job:

     "This is a Fortune 500 energy and grain-based foods company. I have been in pure energy companies, so this is a refreshing departure into a more diversified operation. There was also good alignment between my values and theirs. There was good chemistry with my new boss and I view him as a mentor who can take me to the next level.

     "This assignment is in a completely new area of energy and represents a job that I can do successfully, but also a significant learning experience. The location is close to family, and we have many recreation opportunities for my family. The education system (I have 4 children under 9) is usually number 1 or 2 in the nation. The compensation and benefits package was also attractive and included a solid relocation benefit."


 Kinston was highly complimentary of SET's resources:

     "The confidence I gained from my session with Ken J was very valuable. Your technology also helped me discover openings that would have been difficult to uncover (from a time standpoint) by going to individual job sites (some of which I did not even know existed).

     "The quick response on company research was also a tremendous benefit.

 When I needed it I received timely, comprehensive information as requested.

     "The email communication reminders were also helpful in keeping me on track and focused."


 Kinston also praised the Industry characteristics Profile, solutions for concerns, communication strategy, guidance on interviewing and negotiating, the resumes, CEO Bio and letters, and ongoing services from his team.
