A Random Selection of Success Stories

Madeleine K Now $120,000 Manager with Investment Banking / Turnaround Firm in Upper Midwest--"Very Generous Offer...Location 20 Minutes From My House" ... Credits SET Action Plan, Job Market Access Center, Support and Encouragement of Marketing Director Melissa K

 Reporting to the Managing Director, Madeleine will be working in the Restructuring and Performance Improvement group of the firm, working with clients to improve their processes and in some cases to help them manage through a crisis (bankruptcy). She's pleased with the move, and made these comments:

     "This job allows me to draw off of my manufacturing experiences while incorporating more business and management concepts. The offer was also very generous and the location was within 15-20 minutes from my house. I had the opportunity to try out the company first as a subcontractor before committing as a full time employee."

 Madeleine was specific in her praise of SET resources:

     "The 3 biggest things that SET helped me with were:1. Getting me started with an action plan. I was at a point where I needed help to develop a strong action plan to follow. Starting with completely revamping my resume and approach to finding the unadvertised opportunities.

     "2. I got the most activity from the unpublished sector. Having access to lists of company names by industry was the most valuable part of my job search. It got me in contact with many people that I would not have been able to find on my own....

     "3. Many times I was down and felt like I was at a dead end. Melissa's continuous support helped me to keep going. She always had a suggestion for something extra that I could do to try to generate more activity."

 Madeleine also mentioned the solutions for concerns, the letters, suggestions for career and industry options, the resume distributions and other resources.
