Tammen moved to Colorado from South Africa with her husband and infant son. She came to me because she was having a difficult time finding a job here in the US. She was in the US on a Tourist Visa and needed a Green Card. She had many offers but the Green Card was an issue for a lot of the companies that wanted to hire her. She got a break, when a company said they would have their attorney work with her attorney. Although, money wasn’t an issue, Human Resources worked closely with her attorney to get her the Green Card and they offered to pay for it, as well.
She contributes her new professional resume, networking, interviewing and coaching to her success. Words on paper cannot do justice for the encouragement she needed and received to keep her staying positive and keep her husband from giving up and making them go back to South Africa. They reached their goal to stay in America. They are both so excited about the opportunities they now have.
Jeff came to me when he got down-sized at his previous job. He got 4 job offers since June, one at $46.5K the 2nd in FL $82.5K + relocation and bonus packages. The 3rd offer was a company in Denver received the day before we had a coaching meeting to call them about this offer. The hiring company matched ALL the benefits from the best of the others, 4 weeks vacation. Jeff looked for a job for 2 and ½ months on his own with no phone calls with his old resume. Jeff contributes his resume, interviewing skills, networking and especially his negotiating skills to his success while working with Kim Marino. He has never negotiated a day in his life and would not have received the increase in salary he received without Kim's help. Jeff valued all his coaching each step of the way. He received very positive comments on his resume and interviewing skills. Jeff is so excited to move his wife and 3 young children back home where his family resides with this great job. The company want to move him up the ladder through operations in the next 2 years.
Buddy came to Kim for help when his plant was shut down. Kim created a marketing plan that repositioned him from the Nuclear Power Plant to an Environmental Consulting position, specializing in Waste Management in the Oil & Gas industry. Kim connected him with another client who had contacts in Oil & Gas who recommended this company to him. Kim actually scheduled back-to-back meetings with the two clients to introduce them to each other. In Buddy's meeting we completed his resume. After Kim's clients met in Kim's office, Buddy had 4 interviews with the owners and project managers before his next meeting with Kim the following week. They hired Buddy to be the Client Relations/Project Manager for one of their clients for a 3 month contract making a 50% salary increase. He is very excited as he has been out of work for one year from his field and working evenings before coming to me for help. In January, Buddy got a great full time, permanent position with this oil and gas consulting company.
Lisa was having a difficult time finding work on her own. She had bad experiences with her previous boss, as well. She contributes the whole package to her success; resume, letters, especially the interview training and positive motivational coaching through the process. She got offered $17K more than she was making before and is launching a new career with this job. Lisa is an RN IT/database management professional who was seeking a database management position in healthcare. This position repositioned her into New Product Development, utilizing her RN and database management skills. They created this position for her around her skills. I am so excited for her. When Lisa called me she said, "Kim, what a difference a day makes, I got a great job.” A year later Lisa called me looking for her replacement. She got a promotion!
Patrick had a resume created along with coaching meetings on how to maximize his networking skills and negotiate to get the money wanted. His resume and interviewing skills training attributed to his success. It taught him to refocus his skills. A Property Management Corporation offered Patrick a position as Director of Capital Expenditures. The company he was working for was counter offering his offer from another company. I suggested he bring this new company on as a client with bonuses and commissions to keep both opportunities. It worked!
Luke had his own business and wasn’t sure how to conduct his job search after selling his business. His daughter is a dental hygienist and was cleaning teeth for a patient who was an acquaintance of her dad. She said her dad was networking and she was helping him. She asked if he knew anyone in the abc industry and the story goes on and on. He is very excited about accepting this position at a great company. The company will be networking with my client's contacts because they both used the same vendors for different purposes.
