This is part of a series of testimonials from candidates who have successfully been placed by The Execu|Search Group. This testimonial comes from Paulette Rozell; you can find our past testimonials here. Paulette turned to The Execu|Search Group to help her find a long-term opportunity that met her needs and matched her skill set. She worked with Michael Bennett, a Staffing Manager within The Execu|Search Group’s Accounting/Finance division, to do just that. Paulette had a positive experience and was happy to speak with us about it. Here’s what she had to say: On her background & what she was looking for… I have been a Billings Collection Manager for about 25 years in the legal and public relations industries. When I met with Michael at Execu|Search, I was looking for a full-time manager position. Despite all my years of experience, I still faced many frustrating challenges in my job search and knew I’d benefit from a recruiter’s help. On how TESG worked to meet her needs… I’ve worked with recruiters before who didn’t quite understand my needs, but Michael and Execu|Search as a whole were different. They first became acquainted with my needs to ensure they understood them, then searched for jobs that specifically fit my criteria. Michael always made sure I was well-prepared for each interview and was very professional. On preparing for the interview… Michael worked with me to ensure that I understood the role and what the company’s needs were. He provided me with insight and useful tips for the interview process to help me land the position. On her overall experience… Execu|Search sent me on a few interviews, but most importantly, they were able to line me up with a position that fit my skill set and helped me secure a job that suited my needs. This was my first temp-to-perm opportunity and not only did they help me get my foot in the door, they also made sure I was fully informed and updated every step of the way. Michael, specifically, is a pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with him in the future. “Paulette has a very outgoing, optimistic personality which created a great working relationship between us,” says Michael. “I knew as soon as I met her that she would be a candidate I could send to my clients without any hesitation. I am very happy we were able to find a perfect match for her background and hope to work with her as a client in the future.”

Though the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) November Jobs Report will not be released until Friday, our numbers are in, and we are happy to report positive job growth for last month! According to our November employment index, last month we experienced a 27% year over year uptick in all job orders from clients across our practice areas. That being said, don’t believe the myth that the holidays are not the right time to look for a job! Although it might seem like a slow time of the year, hiring managers are still very focused on hiring for a variety of roles across industries. Take advantage of it!
