How Execu|Search Put Me To Work: Damaris Torres

This is part of a series of testimonials from candidates who have successfully been placed by The Execu|Search Group. This testimonial comes from Damaris Torres; you can find our past testimonials here.

When Damaris, an accounting professional, was let go from her job of nine years, she knew she wanted to find a role that made her as happy as her previous one. After connecting with Taylor McCormack, a Staffing Manager within The Execu|Search Group’s Accounting/Finance division, Damaris was able to find an opportunity that met her needs. Excited to see where this new role takes her, Damaris was happy to speak with us about her experience with Execu|Search:

On her background…

Unsure of what career path I wanted to take, I started working for a law firm in 2001 as a billing clerk because I always had a knack for numbers. I decided to go back to school while I was working to attain both my Bachelor’s and Master’s in Business Administration. These experiences led me to a career in accounting, which I love because there are always new challenges.

On what she was looking for…

When I first connected with Execu|Search, I had recently been laid off from an advertising firm where I had been for the past nine years. I loved the work, the interactions I had with the teams, and the impact I was able to make during my time there. Finding a job that could offer me a similar experience was a top priority for me.

On how TESG worked to meet her needs…

Taylor and I connected right away! She was very attentive to my interests and concerns, including my salary expectations and the kind of work I was looking for. She was very transparent with me throughout the process, so I always knew I was in good hands. Having regular communication with Taylor made me feel like she was completely invested in my job search.

On preparing for the interview…

Taylor took the time to make sure I was completely prepared for each interview. She always reviewed the company background, the culture of the team, and the skills I should highlight to make a strong impression. This interview prep helped me go into my interviews with confidence.

On her overall experience…

I’m so appreciative of everything Taylor and her team did for me during this process. They worked tirelessly to ensure I found a job that suited my needs and strengths. As I get ready to start my new position this month, I am so thankful for the two of them and am excited to see how this role will help me grow in my career!

“Damaris has a wide range of skills, but her positive personality stood out the most to me,” says Taylor. “I knew right when I met her that she was going to leave an excellent impression on anyone who interviewed her. She  is going to find success in this new role, and look forward to seeing her future accomplishments!”
