Renewed confidence helps land position with a future
Jason was looking to apply his education and sixteen years of experience in the Agricultural and Animal Feed industries to advance his career. With a degree in Agriculture and his MBA, he was excited to pursue available opportunities.
“I had initially worked for family owned firms in Canada. I worked for one for approximately three years, and another for about a year and the last position was for two years before the operation was taken over. I wasn’t happy with the new arrangement, so I came to Capstone to get some career advice and to work on my CV to pursue a management position.”
Jason had initially heard of Capstone Career Solutions from one of their radio commercials and decided to give them a try. He wasn’t having a lot of success searching for jobs on his own as there just seemed to be a lack of suitable positions available.
“To be honest, I really didn’t know what to expect when I attended my first consultation. It actually ended up being very interesting. The initial couple of interviews with Jeff were very motivational as he was extremely enthusiastic. And when I started working with Martin, he was also really great and very professional. He excelled at keeping me focused and helped greatly in assisting me to refine and polish my resume. His knowledge of recruitment, the HR process and interview skills and preparation were outstanding. He really helped build my confidence and made me a much more ‘interview able’ candidate.”
After successfully securing a position as an Operations Manager in his field of expertise, the confidence Jason gained from working with Capstone Career Solutions helped him realize his goal of utilizing his full range of skills in a management position.
“With their help, I was able to join a company that has a clear management structure and potential for career advancement. Capstone gave me the opportunity to once again do what I’m good at. I would not hesitate to recommend that people go for an initial consultation to see what they think. And what’s great about Capstone is the fact that if they feel the person would not benefit from working them, they wouldn’t take them on. It was just a very positive experience. Having had a number of roles over the last few years that didn’t give me the opportunity to fully use my education and experience, Capstone really helped me get my confidence back to pursue and land this job. They are very good at what they do.”
