How Execu|Search Put Me To Work: Darwin Gordon

This is the first in a series of testimonials from candidates who have successfully been placed by The Execu|Search Group. Our first testimonial comes from Darwin Gordon.

Darwin is an energetic, passionate professional in the creative industry with a particular focus on fashion. Being a designer has always been a dream of his, but that dream seemed far off. To make it a reality, he decided to reconnect with Julie Maurer, an Account Manager in The Execu|Search Group’s Workforce Management Solutions division. Darwin interviewed with the first company Julie matched him with and, immediately after the interview, was offered the role. He now works at a leading fashion company as a Designer.

Darwin was happy to speak with us about his experience and had the following to say:

On his background…

I’ve had a huge passion for fashion design ever since I was in high school, and have been influenced by professionals from New York to Los Angeles. After graduating, I attended Cazenovia College to study fashion design, and received a BFA in 2014. I then moved to NYC and worked for a design company doing technical work.

On what he was looking for…

When I partnered with The Execu|Search Group, I was looking for a job that would allow me to be creative, and fashion had to be a huge part of it. As soon as I spoke with Julie, I knew that she would place me in a position that I would love.

On how TESG worked to meet his needs…

Julie worked with me by reaching out when any position that I was a good fit for opened up. She made sure that the opportunity was something I would feel comfortable in and that would allow me to be creative.

On preparing for the interview…

When it came time to interview, Julie informed me of everything I could do to make sure it went smoothly and put my best foot forward. She briefed me on potential questions and what I should bring in to the interview, and also worked with me to perfect my portfolio and my resume.

“Darwin had a very positive experience with us and was a pleasure to work with,” says Julie. “He was thrilled when I extended the offer to him, and accepted immediately; the next week, he met me for coffee with a thank-you card.”
