How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. How do you manage…

It’s always more comforting to have someone to turn to who is knowledgeable and reliable. Maybe it’s an attorney who has handled a matter for you. Maybe it’s a doctor who has helped you deal with a health issue. Maybe it’s just a good friend who can be relied on for good advice.
But, who is the trusted advisor you turn to about your career? Arguably one of the most important parts of your life.
The unquenchable demand for talent in the BV industry means that your voicemail probably overflows with entreaties about this or that opportunity. Who’s heard about what soon turns into water-cooler conversation.
When you stop to consider, you know that few if any of those calls are from someone truly in a position to give you the informed and unbiased perspective you need to keep your career running on all eight cylinders. Mostly, they’re centered on what’s in front of them at the moment, even if it means putting a square peg in round hole.
It’s our overall approach to the business that makes us different. Your firm probably doesn’t start work on an engagement without a retainer from the client. Neither do we.
What does that mean for you?
- We can answer your questions with detailed information about the practice and the opportunity. We don’t simply read from a job description that an HR department may have written.
- We’re focused on being right, not simply on being first. We can – and want to – take the time to build a relationship. To learn enough about you to know when, or if, we should call you again. And, so that when you do hear from us, you’ll know it’s worth your time to respond.
- We have the time and the interest in maintaining a long-term connection to you even if a job change isn’t on your radar screen. Even if a job-change will never be on your radar screen.
- We are prepared to be the ‘trusted advisor’ that you want to be for your clients. Someone you can pick up the phone and call with no obligation to do anything other than stay in touch.
So, if you hear a voicemail from us, take a minute to return the call. It will be worth your time. Better yet, take the initiative to pick up the phone and get acquainted with us now.
