Marcom Manager with a Technology Company
Prior to joining Paladin, I was working full-time doing real estate marketing. When it became apparent that industry was in trouble, I reached out to Paladin to help me find a new position, most likely in a new industry.
While working full-time, my Paladin account manager met with me to review my resume and hear about what goals and needs I had from a future position. She quickly understood what I was looking for and began her search. She quickly sent me on one interview that turned out not to be fit. That did not deter her and a few weeks later, I received a call from her saying she had the perfect opportunity.
My account manager met with a client who thought that they only needed a graphic design temp. After speaking with them, she realized that they needed much more help and was able to upsell me to them. She explained that my combination of marketing, copywriting and graphic skills would take them much further than a temporary freelancer. They agreed to meet with me and I interviewed the next day. Just a few hours after the interview I had received a temp to perm offer and went permanent two months later.
Paladin definitely put my best interest at the top of the list. They have been responsive and committed. My account manager was able to "create" a position for me by taking the time to really understand what I had to offer and marketing those skills to potential employees.
