Corina Mack is a LIFE SAVER!

I feel quite fortunate that I have many things to be thankful for-one of which is Corina Mack.  In October of 2022 the company I had been working at for 6 years went through a round of layoffs.  Unfortunately, my team was hit, and I no longer had a job.  In November of 2022 I lost my mother.  I was devastated and not in a good place.  I had a family, in which I was the breadwinner.  I was grieving and nervous about the future, Corina contacted me on January 3rd of 2023 via LinkedIn Chat.  She told me about a role with a great company and asked if I was interested.  We spoke the next day.  During my job hunt, I had not seen this position in my LinkedIn page, so I was really glad she had contacted me.  She explained how it was a position where you were able to play with data to create a story-Right up my alley!  Corina was very professional and yet personal at the same time.  Because of this, I felt comfortable explaining to her that I was actively interviewing at a couple of other companies.  I had a hunch that "the end was near" regarding a position for one of them.  She encouraged me and stated that if I was interested, I should give it a try even though the interview process may be on the longer side.  (The process ended up being 4 interviews which was about the same as most I found.) The interview process went amazing, and I owe a lot of that to Corina.  She knew the team and coached me on any topic that she thought I should bring to the forefront in conversation.  She was there to answer my questions, called to say, "I'm here" and texted "Good luck" before each interview.  I felt like I wasn't going at this alone which means a lot when you are going through the job search process.  I am now two months into my position, and I couldn't be happier.  The role is FABULOUS!   I feel challenged, however the role is within my skillset and something I genuinely enjoy.  She knew the company and the culture to a tee, and I cannot say how lucky I feel that Corina contacted me.

P.S. ~

If Corina contacts you….just say "when and where"  :)

Many Thanks,

Sally Kennedy is a ROCKSTAR!

Sally reached out to me when I posted "open to recruiters" on LinkedIn.  I was unfulfilled in my current position and knew, as I am approaching age 55, that it was time to seek a better fit for my level of expertise.  My interview with Sally felt like I was having a cup of coffee with an old friend.  She really cared about my needs, desires, and my work ethic.  When my *new* employer was unresponsive between interviews, she maintained contact and was reassuring of my status.  I would have sought other, less fulfilling, opportunities without her as a resource.  I am thrilled to say that in 3 days I begin my new career as an Account Manager with a company that I am already in love with, and I am incredibly grateful that Sally made that connection!

I would like to start off by saying I am extremely grateful for the work that Mr. Jeff Weller has done for me. 

Mr. Jeff went above and beyond to help me get a new job.  His preparation, attention to detail and commitment is unmatched.  When I did not get the first job I interviewed with, I felt like giving up and was so down on myself.  Mr. Jeff went to work once again immediately to find me another interview and did so in less than 48 hours.  I know for a fact I would not have this opportunity without his help and I will forever be grateful and thankful for all the work he did with  and for me by putting my professional resume together, making sure my resume was seen by companies, and making sure I was more than prepared for the interview process.  

Once again, thank you Mr. Jeff!

Eric Wright is the best!

I received an email from him about job opportunities, shortly after replying to the email I received a call from Mr. Wright discussing my needs for a job and the opportunities he had found to match.  He was very professional and efficient.  Communication was great!  I was never left guessing “what’s next”, he was so informative every step of the way!  Needless to say, I’m happy with this process and my new job as well!

Thomas Evers found my DREAM JOB!

Thomas Evers was an incredible advocate and even had the opportunity to match me with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that allowed me to explore new environments and spread my wings. I owned a marketing agency that serviced the Las Vegas luxury dining and hospitality community. I'm incredibly excited to create an impact in Temecula with this new opportunity that allows me more work/life balance and focus on one hospitality group as their Creative Brand Director. Thomas also followed up at every step and truly worked hard to help me get the best possible contract.

Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication,

Tim Keith got the job done! 

As I began the daunting task of trying to find a new job, I got in contact with Tim Keith. Tim took the time to speak with me about my career goals, my past experience, and what my intentions were in finding a new place of employment.  All of which ultimately helped me find the right job for me, one that I can grow at and build something more than just a job.  He also made the communication between the new company and myself as simple as possible.  Thanks again to Tim for helping me find a place to build my career!
