Congratulations Joe Menner recently placed Brand Manager at Albemarle! Testimonial: “I wanted to drop you a short note now that it’s been about two months on the job with Albemarle just to let you know that I’m loving the new job. I also wanted to let you know that I really appreciate the professional effort you put forward in finding me this opportunity. Last night I was reading on the plane ride back to Baton Rouge an article from my Psychology Today magazine (attached) The article discusses the hiring process with potential job candidates and how important it is to understand if the candidate has the aptitude to do the job. It reminded me of our early discussions when you were trying to understand if I had the aptitude to do the job before you placed me in front of the client. I’m not sure all companies understand and appreciate this skill set that you bring to the table.
In reflecting on the hiring process I also want to share my appreciation for how well you managed me as well as the process. In today’s world the young, up and coming professionals seem to have lost the soft people side of good business acumen. You were diligent with follow-up, you provided great insight and guidance about the corporate culture and made the correct judgement call when you decided to place me in front of Albemarle as a potential candidate. This skill set is being lost like good phone etiquette and sending thank you notes.
I pass your name along to anyone looking to make a hire as well as people looking to make a job change. A partnership is required between the potential candidate, the employer and your company and you’ve done a great job in managing the three sided relationship.”
Please stay in touch.
