If you are someone thinking about strategic direction, career transition and where new ideas are needed, you may appreciate this client’s story in the brief below.

Darrell came to RL Stevens with approximately 10 years experience as a project supervisor in electronics manufacturing.  His career goals were to move into sales, preferably in a global position… with compensation that would allow his wife to stay home and be a mom (aka: domestic engineer).

Even prior to final drafts of his resume, Darrell was networking feverishly. Using the extensive deep level market research RL Stevens provided, along with key decision maker names in companies that fit Darrell's target market, a position was revealed that would allow him to relocate to the west coast, increase his compensation so that his wife could remain at home, and join a company with long-term growth in a global environment.

Aggressive training and polishing of his interviewing techniques positioned him for an offer at the conclusion of his first face-to-face interview. The rest… is history.

“I couldn’t believe the way the company responded to my negotiating strategies…

They gave me everything that I asked for….  No balks, no questions….

My only regret is I wasn’t as aggressive as my consultant said I should be,

I didn’t ask for enough…. And I probably could have done even better.”
