What Our Clients Are Saying…
Denise T., CA
Thank you for helping me re-engineer my resume to highlight my skills in a more productive way than I had done. I really can’t thank you enough for your assistance, tutelage and valued support through all of this. I can’t believe that I am already at this point and I’ve only been working this new approach for two weeks! I have never worked this hard at finding the right job and I am so glad that I did it right this time. I think it is going to turn into more opportunities to allow me to make the best choice for my family and me.
Suresh B., Denver, CO
Working with ECP and my Career Strategist can best be described as exceptional. The advice, products and presentation materials were all very professional and completed on schedule. I would recommend ECP and the services they provide to anyone needing professional assistance for their career momentum.
Jerald C., Northern VA
Working with ECP has been an outstanding and beneficial experience. Their processes and materials are exactly what I needed in my campaign for a new opportunity. Outstanding Service!
Cindy R., Denver, CO
I am so grateful I decided to use ECP to assist, guide and coach me during my job search. It has made such a HUGE DIFFERENCE in so many ways. They have so many resources and access to recruiters, CEOs, Hiring Directors and company information that I never would have had access to otherwise. They assign each of their clients a Career Strategist to work with you one-on-one through their entire campaign. My Career Strategist was AMAZING! She re-wrote my resume(s), which were a much better representation of me, my experience, and my expertise than the resumes I had written. She created various letter templates for me to use during the job application and interview processes, which made communication much easier. I had some major life transitions going on at the time I enlisted ECP and was only able to take “baby steps” on my job search for several months before engaging wholeheartedly to look for my next job. My Career Strategist was positive, understanding, supportive, caring, and helpful the entire way. We’d have a video or audio call almost every week to discuss strategy, next steps and answer any questions I had. And in between calls I reached out to her via email or texts with my questions or if I needed her guidance and I was very pleased with her response time. Her knowledge, guidance, suggestions, and support helped keep me pointed in the right direction. As a result of working with her, we’re not only professional colleagues, we are now also friends. The fee amount was definitely worth what I received in return! I’m still in the process of my job search, yet know as a result of using ECP and working with my Career Strategist, I will obtain a much higher paying job than I would have on my own. I highly recommend working with ECP!
Barry N., Pittsburgh, PA
So far very professional, very knowledgeable, very good with the preparation of C.V. documents and the Workfolio website. I’m anxious to get started applying to jobs.
Kelly G., Baltimore, MD
Everyone has been so helpful and professional. The tools and resources they have provided has been great and my Career Strategist has been wonderful. Very pleased so far on what they have delivered!
ECP offers top notch professionals who can accelerate your job search. They are far more than a simple out-placement firm. They offer sophisticated marketing support and aggressive tactical expertise.
-Miles M., ECP Client, Denver, CO
David M., Oklahoma City, OK
I just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone at ECP for their hard work and dedication to finding what will be this next chapter in my life and to give a testimonial for anyone who has like they couldn’t reach that next level in their career. My Career Strategist and the entire ECP group have been nothing short of amazing. The documents ECP has provided me have been second to none.
After reviewing the documents that ECP had sent over to me I decided to send them to a trusted source that also happens to be a top recruiter in my field. The response and feedback I have gotten was overwhelmingly positive. He even ran it through his database to see if it would get filtered out through his ATS and it did not. As a matter of fact, my resume came out as one of the top candidates.
I have also been using the many techniques my Career Strategist has showed me thus far, and have recently received more valuable information on how to optimize LinkedIn and other social platforms to gain a stronger foot hold in the job market. I have to say that I don’t know that I have been this optimistic about finding a career opportunity before. This process has given me renewed hope that I can navigate around the fact that I don’t have a degree and rather highlight my extensive experience and unique skill set instead.
This experience has caused me to look at my experience and skill set in a whole new light as well as the value that I bring to a potential employer. If you are looking for a new career opportunity or even thinking of changing career fields, ECP has your back. I highly recommend you contact one of their career strategists today.
Rich S., San Francisco, CA
All in all my experience with ECP was great and I would recommend them to others either looking for a change from their current company/role or needing help to get back into the job market after some amount of time of being away.
As a former executive with a large company, I had left a few years earlier to pursue some entrepreneur and consulting opportunities. As such, I was a bit concerned about how to best re-enter the corporate job market and being a little older, I was also concerned about finding the right fit at the level I wanted. One of the things that ECP stressed, and that I cannot re-stress hard enough, is that you get out of this what you put into it. There are no free rides. Given how the job market works today, you really have to be proactive and put your best foot forward but you also have to know and understand the latest tools and methods that are used by companies and recruiters as things in the digital and social media world are much different. This is where ECP really shines to help give you that edge. Those ECP resources/advice combined with my proactive work, including how to best utilize my industry contacts was the winning combination for me! Below are just some of the key elements that I thought were helpful in my job search using ECP resources:
∙ Consulting: this was by far the most valuable to me and it was outstanding! My Career Strategist was always readily available to discuss things with me and even set up regular weekly calls as needed as we were going through the some of the key deliverables and actions we had worked out. That is another thing, this is a team activity, so I was heavily engaged in all aspects of the ECP process to not only make sure I was taking full advantage of all of their resources, but also making sure I optimized the opportunities that we were working. This was very important to me as being out of the job search for a while I wanted to make sure that I presented myself in the best possible light so using the ECP resources and bouncing things off of my CS for interviews and even salary negotiations was a great asset to me as it either confirmed my approach, or many times, ECP had some suggestions based on their experiences and knowledge that were much better than my approach. If nothing else, my CS and team provided me with an honest assessment of pros and cons with what I was thinking.
∙ Resume update: I can’t stress enough how important this is in today’s market to have the right resume that not only stresses your accomplishments but is formatted so that it will catch the recruiters attention quickly and can also be easily edited if you need to highlight or stress specific skills for select positions you are applying for.
∙ LinkedIn consulting: Let’s face it, the professional world revolves around LinkedIn, so having an up to date and compelling profile is paramount and no, your LinkedIn profile is not the same as your resume, so knowing the tricks of how to best leverage LinkedIn for your search is a key skill for ECP.
∙ Personal web page: highlight your skills and accomplishments. This is not used in all cases (and ECP will tell you that) but is a very good way for someone to get more information about you with a single click so just another feature to help cover your bases on the job search.
∙ Letters for all types of contingencies: I used several of these with just a bit of personalization for the given opportunity. Saved me a lot of time in knowing the best format and language to use given the situation.
Theo B., Dallas, TX
I really like the progress to date that my Career Strategist has provided. The walk-thru of action items has enabled me to take the steps necessary to initiate the outbound solicitations.
Gary S., Chicago, IL
I have been working with my Career Strategist who has been very responsive and proactive. He has spoken with confidence about the work that is being produced and the prospects for my future. I have been very impressed and am feeling more confident about my searching.
Gus R., Cleveland, OH
I would absolutely endorse the service. Prior to engaging your service I had applied for over 100 postings, and had only heard back from a few. I began to utilize my new resume tool, and I clearly had received better response rates from this activity. The education that was provided around the interview process was also helpful. My networking strategy was intense and effective. I think it’s important for anyone in this situation to understand that ECP is a powerful tool, but the effort and outcome is theirs to own. I needed a shiny pair of shoes for my interviews and some assistance landing them. That is exactly what you provided.
Tom B., Atlanta, GA
Thank you for all that you did to help me energize my job search. After engaging ECP and specifically working with my Career Strategist, the level of activity in my search increased significantly and, more importantly, I experienced a higher level of meaningful interviews for great positions.
Dan S., Orlando, FL
I wanted to let you know a couple of things. First, working with you was probably one of the best experiences of my life. Secondly, I have accepted the Vice President of Operations and General Manager Role for a major Florida entertainment and food venue. This role will allow me to stay in the Orlando area and have a very instrumental role in an ideal company. Most of all, I want to consider you a friend, for the remainder of my time on this planet. The things that I discovered in this process are more meaningful than most people can imagine. You have taught me so much. Thank you for everything.
Marion S., Albuquerque, NM
Before I enjoy shouting “WOO HOO” from the mountaintops for being offered a phenomenal job yesterday, I want to let you know how much I appreciate how you helped me get here.
By coaching me, creating phenomenal marketing materials, and boosting my confidence when I needed it, your support opened my eyes to new possibilities. You reminded me that I built phenomenal skills at my last company, which helped me put my best foot forward when interviewing for this role.
THANK YOU. You are among the first to know that I have been offered the top HR position, a successful publicly-traded, family-owned, business. I will fill a pivotal position in the company leadership team and help transform their HR department into a strategic contributor to the business. More than that, I’m delighted that this position – as challenging as it will be – enables me to bring my full, authentic, self to the role. The leadership team I’m joining is highly committed and caring, and I’m grateful to be starting a new and exciting chapter of my life.
Thank you again for helping me to navigate the twists and turns of an executive job search.
Maria E., Pompano Beach, FL
Thanks to your professionalism, timely reply to emails and pertinent/applicable feedback, we ended on such a high note. Thank you!!! I have nothing but the highest marks for my experience working with you. You made the journey easier and helped me stay strong along the way. For this, I will be eternally grateful. All the best!
Chris H. , Charlotte, NC
It has been a whirlwind, but I wanted you to know that I landed a job. Regarding ECP – I am very satisfied with the service I received, and have actually recommended you to at least two colleagues/friends. The SOAR stories were most valuable. I used them especially on phone interviews (and referred to the examples in live interviews), and having those prepared examples in front of me made me sound organized and confident. Thank you! I’d use ECP again – I think it was a good investment.
Johnson, Madison, WI
I want to let you know how truly grateful I am for your help and assistance. The money I invested with ECP was very well spent! I feel very blessed to have had my Career Strategist…they were awesome! Rest assured that I am sending all the info on ECP to a number of my acquaintances who are nearing retirement (from the military) as well, so don’t be surprised if you get a phone call if you hear from a few of them!
Rob, Los Angles, CA
I usually do not give highest ratings across the board, but the ECP Team is exceptional…
Dale R., Dallas, TX
It is rare these days that one can stand up and say that a service provider “truly exceeded expectations, “ but ECP did! I spent months, before acquiring their services, trying to make traction in my search activities with no success. ECP’s executive search methods, best practices and support really made the difference. They specifically made all the difference, as they coached me through the offers and negotiation process. Immediate payback on my investment with your organization! I know my family appreciates what you and your team have done for us.
Brian, Chicago, IL
After following your methodology for just two days, I have been called back for two interviews. I have to say, I am very impressed with the early returns. You really know what you’re doing!
Jon, Denver, CO
I cannot thank you enough. Keep up the great work! I will definitely refer my friends to ECP.
Michelle (Chief Marketing Officer), San Jose, CA
I am so thankful to the ECP team for the services provided during my job search. I had been trying on my own for several months with little feedback from dozens of resumes sent to varying industries, job levels and within my own area of experience. As focused and as determined as I was, it led to frustration week after week with little response and few opportunities. I had gotten to the place of not knowing where the next resume would go. ECP’s services were well detailed, very specific and proved to be a winning formula for me. It was actually the first company I reached out to that presented me the best offer. Today I’m happy to say that I’m really enjoying my new career. Thank you so much for your program and for the tools I needed to find a job in a tough market – I do not think people looking for a job understand the changing techniques used by companies and search engines and recruiters. I hope to never need your services again, but if do, I wouldn’t undertake a job search without ECP.
Denise H., Apex, NC
I have just crossed my 30 day mark in my new position. I wanted to reach out and thank you for the support as I went through my search. I have truly ended up somewhere that I feel I was meant to be. Being able to use my technical skills to make a difference is an amazing thing.
Your team’s support was key to me landing this position. When my position was moved out of the country, I was really at a loss on what to do next. I knew I couldn’t move my family out of the country, but I had no idea where to start as I had never had to look for a job. I had no resume, no job searching skills and my social profiles we basic at best. Thanks to your team’s support I was able to get all that in place quickly. Before I knew it I had many options to choose from. Almost more important to me was the fact that your team gave me the confidence to not jump at the first thing out of fear and desperation. Even though I had to geographically limit my search, your team worked diligently with me to make sure I was enabling and working every applicable channel.
I learned it is a process that has to be worked, but if you stick to your guns and have the right support system you can go anywhere you want. Your team gave me the confidence to stick to my guns and gave me the support I needed to be successful at the search endeavor! You know it was a tough sell for me at first. It’s a little daunting to make what felt like a significant financial investment in the process when you are facing an uncertain future. I can say at this point, thank you for working through my initial skepticism! The investment was well worth it. You and your team did everything you promised and more. It has already paid it back in not only job satisfaction but the positions I was able to help attract solidified the investment when the final math was done.”
Again, I can’t thank you and your team enough for supporting me through this process. I would recommend your team to anyone in my position, that finds themselves at a juncture in their career path either voluntarily or involuntarily! Best to you and your team!
J. Meads, Salt Lake City, UT
I wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know how my campaign is shaping up. All of my marketing collateral is completed and my Career Strategist is putting finishing touches on LinkedIn and personal website over the next couple of days.
I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience thus far. My CS is the consummate professional and quite clearly an expert in the field of assembling compelling material full of amazing content.
He is also helping to guide me along with a few job postings that I have identified to ensure that I understand the application and follow up process.
So far my expectations have been surpassed ten fold and am confident that as a result of this stellar preparation and planning that it will translate to a smooth career transition.
D. Stansel, Sacramento, CA
My Regional Director was my first contact with ECP. He was very thorough with follow up, gave me extensive information to help me make the decision and seemed to take a personal interest in my success. My Career Strategist has been extremely diligent in customizing my information, helping me construct fact based storylines to discuss in interviews and given me strategies to leap forward in my job search. Many great things to say about both already in my early stages of job search. Thank you both!
