WHAT OUR CORPORATE CLIENTS AND CAREER TRANSITION PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING ABOUT FIRST TRANSITIONS
Ø First Transitions is the vendor that provides for us the best service and highest value to our employees.
Ø We always receive more than we have paid for.
Ø “This was the best money spent “. Good Work!
Ø First Transitions is great! Keep up the good work – we depend on everything you do.
Ø I want to take this opportunity to extend my sincerest gratitude to you and your team for the extraordinary assistance I received during my recent employment search. The entire staff of top notch professionals clearly defined the term “extended family” not only for me, but for each and every one of the temporarily off course souls I encountered on my appointments to the 10th floor. The culture that you have created at First Transitions is welcoming, laid back and professional with a definite positive undercurrent that one’s search will ultimately be successful before you know it.
While each of the staff is genuinely considerate and thoughtful, I must single out _________ as the quintessential compassionate and caring professional. The integrity, intrepidness and thoroughness he manifests each day on the job sets a standard for us all. _____ indisputable and understated resolve that you will find comparable – if not better – employment than you had previously, honestly convinces you of that and you can’t help but be won over by it.
There would be down periods, to be sure, but he was able to sense that and inject a timely and witty remark, scope to the larger picture or merely say ‘don’t forget you have a lot to offer,’ and that would be enough to rekindle the positive energy and reinforce your inner arsenal to continue the search and make it successful.
One final dimension that made my working with him so unforgettable was his accessibility. He is the epitome of the adage “my time is your time.” But beyond that, not only was his time, my time, but my cause became his cause. And that is something you cannot teach or put a salary value on because it’s genuine, and comes from within. That overarching sense of mission is invaluable.
Ø I think First Transitions was extremely valuable to me in my job search and providing an environment to focus on the mission(s). It is definitely something you should keep in mind in the future. Everyone at First Transitions went out of their way to make me feel welcome and important.
Ø I just returned safely from my visit. I don’t know how to begin to thank you for making my visit so enjoyable. I love the emerging personal and professional chemistry that is evolving. You simultaneously push me and respect me. I am in great hands for the future. You are helping me with clarity…mulled over a lot of things on the ride home. Tomorrow I will work on my homework assignments.
Ø Thank you for giving so graciously of your time and yourself. It is a gift to be able to communicate so openly with people and make them feel “right at home” within minutes. You use that gift well! You have broadened my sense of the network community around me and I intend to continue to build that network and strengthen those bonds. You are a pleasure to work with and a joy to get to know. The road will not end here! You are amazing!
Ø Thank you so much for all of the help and support you provided me during my search. I don’t know how I could have done it without you.
Ø I thought I would conduct my own search without much difficulty. While I have been at it for a few months, I can tell you it is nice to have a professional office and solid resources to support you. I have found their services valuable both in assisting me to understand what I want to do in my next move. As well as resources to focus my search. I fully indorse taking some time to step back, collect your thoughts, and decide how you want to proceed with the next chapter of your life.
Ø Based on my initial meeting, I had pretty high expectations, but you far exceeded those, you are a delight to talk to, very talented and an expert at what you do. I really needed an ego boost. I am more energized than I have been in weeks.
Ø I will always be grateful for your support during my transition and especially appreciate you accepting me to First Transitions even when the funding was unsure. I am committed to following your example by supporting others when I can.
Ø I wanted to thank you and your team for being a tremendous resource for me during my search. What a wonderful – and fun – group! From the minute I walked into your office until I landed the position – and actually beyond that point – the level of professionalism, focused attention and personal touch I experienced was second to none. As you know, this was the third time in my career that I had the opportunity to work with an outplacement firm and your organization will ultimately put many others out of business.
I also wanted to applaud _________. He inspired exciting introspection and dialogue as we walked through the various analyses together. His guidance helped reinforce many of my existing values and goals – and I learned new things about myself as well. What a great guy!
Ø I was fortunate to have met you and am so appreciative for all your guidance, assistance, support and of course the excellent resume. That was a difficult time and everyone at First Transitions was so supportive, professional and understanding of what we were going though. My company chose a class act when they selected your group to assist those of us who went through the workforce reduction. It has been a pleasure to work with you.
Ø Thank you for the advice and assistance during my job search. You have been extremely helpful in getting me organized and following up with ideas and encouragement all through the process.
I can’t thank the staff of First Transitions enough for all the work done on my behalf. They were all great and made my “tenure” much more enjoyable. Not only is the staff very personable, they are professional and their work is top quality. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support and assistance during my search. You were always right on target. And, I don’t know how I would have survived without your support.
Ø You have a big heart. I sense these high level candidates open up to you. Quite empowering to change someone’s world the way you do. Nice job!
I am fortunate to have landed a position so close to home, not only because I can time my commute with a stopwatch, but more importantly so I can stay in touch with good people such as you and your team. I want to stay in touch – perhaps we could have dinner together at some point…I’ll be in touch. Please give my regards to your team; I will stop in some time soon.
