|New skills and tools provide career flexibility
After applying for a much coveted position in the Security Industry for a very high-profile organization, Tim was pleased to receive an initial interview. However, after not being selected to move forward in the interview process, Tim took a long hard look at himself.
“Since I really wanted that position, I looked at myself and thought that I have to be doing something wrong. I decided to contact Capstone Career Solutions to find out what kind of help is out there to make me a better candidate or allow me to get the proper methods to approach these prospective employers. I decided to give Capstone a try and went through their selection process.”
Tim initially approached Capstone after they were recommended by one of his associates. He was impressed from the minute he stepped into their office.
“What really intrigued me and something that I found really positive, was the whole professional nature from the moment I walked in the door. It was a process that made you feel like there was a genuine fit. I felt like I wouldn’t be wasting my time with this organization and neither would Capstone in working with me. I found their professionalism very positive.”
Although Tim initially expected Capstone Career Solutions to simply call up a company and find him a job, he soon realized that their approach was quite different. He really appreciated the fact that his Career Advisor Lionel Desjardins took the time to understand him as a person. He didn’t hold his hand, but rather, taught him the skills and tools to accomplish his own career goals.
“I feel the level of knowledge and professionalism demonstrated by Capstone is extremely high and in my case, I like to keep things light. Lionel was able to adapt to that and learn about me so we can work together in a manner that meets my needs. That’s the big piece, its professional while fitting my personality and style. They really know how to adapt their approach.”
After successfully securing a position in his chosen field of Physical Security and Life Safety, the
confidence, skills and abilities Tim has gained from working with Capstone Career Solutions has really opened up the door to new possibilities.
“You rarely think about all the skills and tools that they gave you until you really critically analyze where you were and where you are today then you can see where they fit.
