Candidate Testimonials

 

I had the pleasure of working with the team at Careers for Women after I graduated from Colby. They were quick to empower me with the ability to discuss my past experience in a way that made sense to future employers. Not only did they place me on multiple interviews, they were also able to support me in learning about what the full career trajectory would be with each position. That educational process was the portion of our relationship that I appreciate the most. Going forward, I know that I can always use them as a resource throughout my career as questions arise! 
       — Dana R., Business Development Executive


From the first time I met you and your team I have felt 900% more confident in all the decisions I have made! It has been a real pleasure working with you and your highly professional team. I am certain that the direction I am headed in is one that will be challenging, enriching, and most importantly, exciting. I look forward to it all with eyes wide open. With Rebekah's, David's and your guidance I have stepped into something that was beyond my expectations and genuinely thank you all for your help. I sincerely hope to maintain our relationship as time goes on.  
 
     — Alex N., Account Executive


 

From the bottom of my heart a huge thank you to you, David, and the rest of your team. For me it goes beyond the fact that you helped me with my career search, it is the fact that you believed in me and wanted not just to place me, but to find the right fit. You made me believe in myself and that means more to me than anything. I know this is just the beginning of my relationship with you all so I have the pleasure of looking forward to working with you in the years to come.

I could not have been happier with my experience with CFW Careers. They truly take the time to get to know you, your career path and suggest positions that play to your strengths and fit your personality. 

I’ve never worked with a recruiting agency that supported you along the interview process. Cynnie was available day or night, on the road or in the office to jump on a call and make sure I was ready for every step of the interview process. The Careers Team also provided encouragement and guidance on making the best impression, both in interviews and in follow up communication. Benefiting from what I learned along the way, I’m now passing along the guidance to my friends. Careers gave me the confidence I needed to succeed. I cannot be more appreciative!
       — Samantha Amoroso, Account Director at Financial Times


I worked with other recruiting firms, and then I worked with your firm and thought, This is the way it’s supposed to be!

 I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Careers for Women for helping me build my sales team over the last 6 years. After using a couple of other recruiters with mixed results, CFW opened my eyes to what excellence in recruiting really looks like. They never try to force a candidate down my throat, or waste my valuable time by sending me candidates that are not suitable fits for my company, just for the sake of sending me people so it looks like they are working hard for me. They want to make sure it is a right fit both for the employer and the employee, and they do an impeccable job of keeping both sides of the equation happy. My satisfaction, and the candidate's, is always their #1 objective, not just earning a commission at the expense of setting up a bad fit. After placing a candidate, their job is not done. They check in separately with both me and the candidate to make sure everything is going well. Everyone I have worked with on the CFW team has been a pleasure to deal with, and they are always in tune with what I am looking for in a sales candidate, whether they are for junior or senior roles. They truly care about their craft and go the extra mile. If you are a manager, look no further for help building your team. If you are a job seeker, CFW will help guide you along the next step in your career path. If you are another recruiter, mimic exactly what CFW is doing! I cannot recommend CFW highly enough.

I can’t believe it has been nearly twenty years since I first walked into a Careers for Women seminar and heard David King speak.  At the time, I was just twenty-four years old.  While I couldn’t quite say what is was that I wanted, I knew it was so much more than the dead end job in which I was stuck, earning just $21,000 per year.

I remember hearing David’s words and listening to the stories of the women he placed who were all earning over $100,000 per year, and I was hooked.  Before attending your seminar, I never viewed sales as a career that I would have any desire to pursue.  I viewed salespeople as pushy and wanted no part of that.  David changed my opinion of salespeople and set me on the path that would be my career.  And he placed me in my first sales job—where I too was able to earn $100,000!

But even more than the financial success, the skills I learned as a salesperson—persistence, resilience, determination, self-reliance and not taking rejection personally—were skills that not only shaped my professional success—but were skills that were applicable to every part of my life.

Throughout the past twenty years, David King has been a trusted advisor, mentor, and someone who could always be called upon to provide expert guidance navigating important career decisions.
