General Review

Jerry had been out of work for four months when he approached RL Stevens for help narrowing down his choices. An accomplished technical sales executive in his mid-50’s, his major priority was to join a company with a strong growth curve, where he could use his extensive project management and sales skills.

Jerry's consultant helped him to find and understand where his skills fit in the marketplace and explained his many options. Jerry was given decision maker names, extensive market research, growth opportunities, and substantial knowledge of the competition. A short time later, using his written and oral marketing plan, Jerry began to be wooed by a competitor of his former company and also by a startup that actually employed him briefly as a business development consultant.  It soon became apparent that Jerry would likely have more than one offer from which to choose.

His consultant coached him every step of the way, through interviews with the Presidents and Senior Executives of two companies. In the end, after Jerry had ruled out the local startup he’d been working for, his consultant helped him orchestrate having two live offers simultaneously and thoroughly evaluate them, head to head.

For reasons of personal challenge as well as potential financial reward, Jerry chose to join a well-financed provider of e-business product development solutions whose first products have been sold to major multinational equipment designers and manufacturers, rather than the competitor. He’s thrilled to be returning to work in a key role in such an organization.

Faith is peaceful and comforting, as a result of it comes from inside exactly where nobody can invade your personal dreams.
