I cannot thank King Career enough! I was referred to King by a friend. My position ( CFO for a mid-sized chemical development corp ) was downsized after a merger. Before hiring King I had spent 8 months searching on my own for a position with virtually no fruit. I went in for an initial consultation and was treated with complete respect and professionalism. I was amazed at the completely honest, open book approach of the consultant. He never tried to "sell" me anything. He laid out all of his research and mapped out a gameplan to finding me a suitable position. Once I hired them, they did an analysis of my wants, needs, training and accomplishments and came up with a profile of the ideal job for me. They then drafted a very dynamic resume and performed extensive training on networking, interviewing and negotiating. I always thought I was a pretty sharp guy. I had no idea there was such a vast difference between serviceable and fantastic networking and interviewing. I really learned a ton here. Once the training was over we set to exploiting their network of leads. I was blown away by how much they increased my network. I was getting 5 - 10 times the amount of exposure I was getting on my own. I really had so much more depth to my search with their assistance. The proof was in the pudding. I landed a VP Finance position just 2 months after hiring King. Whereas on my own I had gone 8 months with no really good offers. My new position pays about 5% less than my previous job, but the opportunity for advancement is much greater. I heartily recommend King Career to anyone. They certainly came through for me.
Outstanding preparation for job search. They taught me fantastic interviewing skills. They trained me so well on the interviewing I had three interviews in ten days and got job offers from two of the three. Their network and network training helped me a great deal too. I provided them a list of 18 companies in my industry and they had contacts in 13 of them. I contacted 9 of the 13 and they pointed me in the right direction. The 3 interviews came from the 9 people I contacted. Oh, another thing that was very helpful was the initial position profiling. Jerry helped me identify that I did not like stuffy organizations and that I preferred a more casual environment. He guided me away from a few companies that he feered I would not be happy working for. Their system is fantastic. If you work it the way they train you it cuts SIGNIFICANT time off your job search. And as anyone who is unemployed will tell you...every day you go unemployed costs you money. I am guessing they cut 2-3 months off my job search (saved me roughly 12-18K). Very highly recommend.
Personalized one-on-one service! I partnered with King Career Consultants to help guide my career path. I was unsure what direction I wanted in my career up to that point in my life. Even with a Masters degree, I had been working various jobs and never felt directed, accomplished or making the income that I felt I deserved, especially for as hard as I work. I would interview and accept positions just because I thought that turning one down would be rude to the employer. Utilizing King Career Consultants five phase process was extremely helpful! Honestly it was an eye opener to learn that it was my lack of preparedness all along that was keeping me from landing a decent interview, and that in no way did I have to accept an offer if the position did not meet my needs. Now I feel prepared to not only find the right companies to interview with, but tackle any interview and win!
