"What better testimonial than a returning customer? As soon as I learned I was being released (due to budget cuts) from my job for a second time in my career, I immediately got in touch with John. The results were the same as the first time John helped me with my job search, within weeks of working with him I was back in the job force."
Kevin, Software Engineer

I am looking forward to the opportunity to pursue some of the topics we discussed. Thank you for taking the time to discuss these options and prepare me to focus on networking and preparing for an opportunity. I greatly appreciate and value your input.

"I had been looking for 14 1/2 months, and had many interviews, but no offers. I believe your Winning Interview Techniques group coaching program made all the difference; I just accepted a job, and they offered me more money than I asked for!"
Tom, Program Manager, Major Consulting Firm

"I found it difficult to reach out for help in my job search last year, but finally reached a breaking point, and several people suggested I talk to John Hadley.

I knew my résumé needed a lot of work, but struggled to figure out what to do to fix it – I couldn’t see the forest from the trees. John showed me how to transform it to be both professional and succinct – that strong ‘sales brochure’ critical to my search.

I had been focusing my networking efforts on career search networking groups, and John pushed me to get out among the employed, teaching me how to do that in a way that would get me referrals and job leads. He worked with me on interview techniques, and helped me process everything I was hearing and going through.

One of the key values was being able to talk openly and honestly about what was happening, and John’s ability to put everything in perspective, and help me create an effective plan to move forward. Within just 6 sessions, I had landed a terrific new opportunity! I would recommend John without hesitation to anyone in a career search."

Sabina, Project Management Professional

"Your coaching did give me more confidence in interviews. I realized I look away, when I am thinking/speaking, and started to make better eye contact. I landed in a job where I am comfortable, right here in the local area."

“John’s insights were instrumental to my search. I learned how to present myself in a more compelling way that focuses on what I can do for the other person. Our time together was invaluable; well worth the investment.”
John, Technology Executive

"After a 3-year job search, within three months of working with John Hadley, I have an exciting new job. John helped me not only with the mechanics of my job search, but also to overcome the loss of confidence, which was sabotaging my search. And the simple technique he taught me to use in negotiating the final offer earned me an additional $10,000 in base salary!"
Kevin, Software Engineer

"I am still so very happy with my job. I think the company's great, my boss is super, my colleagues are bright and energetic, and my projects and responsibilities are fun and challenging. I'm so glad that I held out for the right job and that you helped me get what I was really looking for."
Lois, Actuary, International Life/Health Insurer

"I am still so very happy with my job. I think the company's great, my boss is super, my colleagues are bright and energetic, and my projects and responsibilities are fun and challenging. I'm so glad that I held out for the right job and that you helped me get what I was really looking for."
Lois, Actuary, International Life/Health Insurer

"Working with you made a real difference in interviews. You helped me see things through the hiring manager's eyes, so I can really understand where they are coming from! Particularly valuable was the work we did on my 2 minute pitch and compelling accomplishment stories. I've found that I now have 'scripts' in the back of my head that give me great confidence!

The cover letter and resume you helped me craft really did the trick! I sent them out to 9 hiring managers I hadn't met, and within 2 weeks had 3 formal interviews and 2 informational interviews --- and the job offer I wanted!"

Alice, Research Analyst, Major Investment Bank

"Your help in the communication process with employers was significant. From the resume to the negotiation process it was great to have a "team" behind me. Your assistance in paying attention to the details was very important, and made a difference in all aspects of my job search."
Lou, Safety Director, Environmental Services Firm

"I began a job search last year having reached a point in my career where my work had become very tedious and unsatisfying. I merely dusted off my years-old resume, added new functions that I had performed, and contacted some recruiters. Well, my resume didn’t open any doors and I really had no understanding of networking. It quickly became clear to me that I needed help and I am extremely grateful that I contacted John Hadley. After working with John to revamp my resume, I began receiving rave reviews from interviewers who had examined it.

Most importantly, John taught me how to effectively network. In just a few months my networking produced three exciting jobs that were excellent fits for my interests and abilities. John was an invaluable resource in guiding me through the interviewing process and I received three job offers in three months!

I am now working in a dream job that is a perfect fit for me and in my desired location! John is now helping me to make a successful start in my new position and I have already been complimented for “hitting the ground running”. Whether you are looking for a new position, or seeking growth in your current job, John Hadley is an invaluable resource to guide you to success!"
