A Random Selection of Success Stories


Rick C Now $165,000 President, Illinois Operations For Staffing Firm-- "Everyone Was Very Responsive"-- Praises Campaign Manager Gerry B



 Reporting to an SVP, Rick will manage sales and operations for the firm in the state of Illinois. He is pleased with the move, the location, and the fact that he will not have to travel. He volunteered this about SET:

     "Everyone was very responsive. Gerry did an excellent job of follow-up."

 Rick also noted the value of the SET resources, including the resumes, the website for finding openings, recruiter openings, and other purposes, the resume distributions to growth firms, large firms, recruiters and e'cruiters, the SOAR stories, the ongoing services, and the surfacing of all his skills and strengths.


Joseph H Wins $126,000+ President US Operations Post in Upper Midwest with German-Based Manufacturer of Bottling Components-- Sees Career Growth Opportunity-- Praises SET Resumes, Bio, Guidance



 Reporting to the CEO in Europe, Joe will lead and direct all US operations for a German company that manufactures bottling components. He sees this move as an opportunity for US-wide responsibilities and career growth. He is pleased and said good things about SET's resources:

     "The resumes and Bio were very effective, as was the guidance on interviewing and negotiating. I also received assistance by SET conducting a reference check. This provided confidence in going forward."


Alicia T Now $110,000++ Technical Director NW for Manufacturer of Medical/Biological Products in Pacific Northwest  Pleased for Several Reasons -- Found Many SET Resources Helpful -- High Praise for SET Marketing Director Judy M



 Reporting to the Managing Technical Director, Alicia will be working as a team with Technical Sales Reps. She will present the science and technical aspects of an immunodiagnostic/therapeutic for human multiple myeloma to doctors, clinicians and patient support groups, will publish results of collaborative studies conducted using the companys technology to monitor patients with multiple myeloma or other blood discrasias, and participate in Grand Rounds in hospitals. She is pleased with her move and with SET:

 There were many reasons I was happy to accept this offer: 1) career growth 2) chance to help promote a lifesaving technology 3) emphasis on human health 4) no need to relocate 5) excellent salary and benefits 6) company seems to have very supportive dedicated people whom I will be working closely with.

 A wide and varied array of SET resources were provided for my use, but the best part of what was provided to me as your client was a wonderful personal coach. Judy M helped me navigate the website and presented me with clear, sensible ideas on how I should market myself. When I began to feel a bit down due to apparent lack of interest on the part of potential employers (bear in mind I was searching in a limited geographical area in a very specific niche), Judy always had new ideas and approaches to try.

 I only used a portion of the many resources you offered, but found them to be most helpful and worthwhile, providing me with constant options to try in my job search. I was worried about age discrimination (I'm in my 50s), but did not encounter that at all in my job hunt...as far as I could see (I do look quite young for my age).
