Taking a Leap of Faith – In Your Career!

With the new year right around the corner, you may be thinking about making a career change.  One of our recent candidates shared their experience of this transition.    She took a leap of faith and is happy she did!  She loves her new position!

“I recently was approached by Career Opportunities International (COI) for a Project Manager role at an undisclosed company.  I was hesitant at first, but their expert Executive Recruiter did a fantastic job of describing the growth and success of the organization and opened my mind to the possibility of beginning a new career at a new organization.  The overview of the organization sparked my interest and the role matched my skills and experience.  As a result I was invited to (and eagerly accepted) a second interview with the Executive Search Business Partner working directly with the hiring organization.  Prior to our conversation he provided not only the company name for me to research, but also an overview of his background and qualifications.  Knowing that I was working with such a professional recruiter built my confidence in the opportunity and the hiring organization.  Throughout the interview process with Senior Leaders at the organization, the Executive Search Business Partner stayed in contact.  They even worked with the organization and me to resolve the distance challenge between my location and the office location; we were able to work out a flexible schedule that allows me to work from home 50% of the time.  I truly would not have even considered this position had I found it on my own due to the lengthy commute.  I highly recommend COI to both organizations seeking talent as well as individuals considering a career change.  Their professionalism and commitment to finding the right match between organization, opportunity, and talent demonstrate their passion for finding professional relationships that succeed and set them apart from other recruiting agencies.   I have been in my new role with the new organization for about a month now, and I am finding the culture and role expectations to be an excellent match for me.  I look forward to continuing my growth and development here while contributing to our strategic vision for many years to come.”
