At a faster timeframe than you can if you are alone. And, at a higher compensation.
How Can We Say That?

Sometimes Potential Clients Ask Us Whether We Have Expertise In Their Specific Industry Or Segment Because They Think This Is Important To The Career Change Process.
Although we have helped professionals in virtually every industry over the last three decades, frankly, their industrial segment is generally not very important to the search process. More important is guiding clients to really clarify their targets, packaging and branding them appropriately, and then helping them access decision makers. We specialize in helping clients to demonstrate transferability and thereby to migrate to growing and more interesting lines of business, almost regardless of their backgrounds.

- Financial Services

- Legal Services
- Management Consulting
- Transportation and Logistics

- Digital Marketing

Why Do We Talk About “Stunning Successes?”
Well, naturally, because our clients are so successful, they often share their experience. Here are a few sample excerpts from recent Success Stories:
Read a snippet from Peter Witke’s story:
“This has been a great learning experience,” said Peter. “I greatly appreciate the compassion shown to me by my two coaches, and their willingness to support me in getting to my next role. This coaching can really make a difference in how you approach the job market.” [Peter Witke, Read More]
Also, here’s a bit from Hugo Vereeken’s story:
“Age discrimination is against the law, but they never say you’re too old. They say, ‘Are you digital enough? Will you fit in with our dynamic team? Are you aware of the latest technological developments?’ These are all hidden reasons for rejections on the basis of age,” said Hugo. “I heard 25 different ways to say, “Hugo, you’re too old! Go and retire!’ That’s when I decided there has to be another way.”
“Before I began working with The Barrett Group, I had been out of a job for ten months with nothing to show for it except frustrating experiences and a feeling that I was too old. I learned a lot from Greg and Anne. Thanks to them, I felt better able to handle recruiters, and I developed the confidence that, even at my age, I can expect great opportunities.” [Hugo Verekeen, Read More]
And, here’s what Advik had to share:
“The Barrett Group is very helpful when it comes to helping you set your goal objectives and organizing your job search. They are good at helping you to revise your resume, practice interview skills, and market yourself through various channels, like LinkedIn. All that creates a great foundation,” said Advik.
