At Career Bridge, we pride ourselves on results. That means getting job seekers back to work quickly in a high-quality, high-paying position. Below are some actual emails we’ve received from our clients. We’ve removed personally identifiable information such as the company and client name. But the rest of the emails have been left as is, including typographical and grammatical errors.
After a 31 year run at a semiconductor manufacturing company, I found myself in need of a new job. Floundering around the resume, relationship building and job search scene, I became very frustrated and demoralized.
I received a call from a Career Bridge representative one day and he explained the Career Bridge program and its benefits. I took a leap of face and signed up…..glad that I did.
Within a couple weeks I had a professional resume (better than any I had previously), a marketing letter (never had one of those) and a plan of attack.
Their approach was different than any I had heard of before and really took me out of my comfort zone but after some excellent personal coaching, in a couple of weeks I was calling executives of companies and having conversations.
I also used their quick job search function which opened up many opportunities that I am sure I would not have had otherwise. Calls from recruiters increased and I was even getting interviews.
I just accepted an offer at a successful company and believe it will launch a whole new career for me. This was all within about a 3 month time period.
Thanks Career Bridge!
I would like to extend my sincere thanks for a job well done to staff at Career Bridge who had a hand in my career advising (resume, career marketing letter, and coaching). Which landed me three job offers! I accepted an offer, and the company asked if I was willing to start early! Their work was completed in a timely manner and the professional quality of work was superior. Their ability to work with me was always conducted in a friendly and cordial manner…I was very pleased with the final product/outcome and look forward to working with your professional team again in the future.
I wanted to let you know that I had received and offer letter from XXXX Co. in XXXX yesterday. It is one of the companies that received my networking letters. I will be accepting this offer and will move up there in the next few weeks.
Thank you for your help and support during my search.
Is there anything I need to do in order to finish my campaign?
Working with all of you was the best decision I have ever made. I was skeptical at first since I have never had to have help finding a new position before, but the pay off is amazing! I just received an offer from one of my top pick companies we mailed the letter too. I contacted on my own but couldn’t get through to anyone. The letter was a great door opener along with the coaching to help me with what to say. I did interview with several companies and was close to an offer on two others but this is my dream job. The salary was an increase over my last position. I want to thank the Career Bridge team for all your help. I was unemployed for 8 months when you contacted me and I was very frustrated and was starting to give up. Now a couple of months later I am a very happy man. Let me know what I need to do about the Success Fee Guarantee.
thanks again, JC
When I started working with Career Bridge and Karen I had been unemployed for over 6 months. I had a lot of baggage with my previous employer and found myself in a difficult situation when searching for a new position. Karen understood the situation I was in and created a plan for me on how to handle my particular situation. Her knowledge of what companies are looking for, how they operate, and how they think was invaluable. After working with her I was able to confidently explain my situation to other companies, explain it in a way that wasn’t detrimental to my job search, and explain it in a way that put me in a more positive light. I know that if it weren’t for Karen’s advice and help my job search would have gone on a lot longer than it did. Karen is a great person to work with and someone who has her finger on the pulse of the current job market. She is a great asset to have on your side when looking for a new position or career.
Hi Connan, I want to let you know I accepted a job a few weeks ago, and want to thank you for all your help. I joined ABC Company, as General Manager at their plant in Arizona. Yesterday, they asked me to take on a 2nd plant too ! You were a great help through my job search.
Thank you everyone for all your help. I just accepted an offer from XXXX Inc as the Vice President of Sales. The career coach helped me negotiate sign on bonus and a compensation plan that met my goal. I am sending you a referral his name is_______. He will be contacting you this week.
Hi Connan, Wanted to let you know that I was just contacted by 1 of the companies (XXXX) we sent letters out to. That was fast, I just mailed them out. An HR Administrator reached out on behalf of the CEO asking for a copy of my resume as well as times to have a discussion. I just forwarded the resume and am trying to arrange time either tomorrow or Friday.
Do you have time in the AM tomorrow to review prior to be connecting with XXXX?
In speaking to Karen Kirkpatrick, I want to express my gratitude, excitement, and utmost appreciation for all the efforts by Karen, My Career Coach Karen, and Career Bridge for helping me get back into the workforce.
Thanks again, SC.
It is hard not to get discouraged in this job market and I am very happy I chose Career Bridge to help accelerate my job search process. This is a six figure job and I am actually going to be making more that I did at my previous company. Thanks again for all your support. I am obviously very happy I chose Career Bridge.
I can’t thank you enough for all your help! After several interviews with XYZ Co., I was offered a job last week with their division in XXXX. I am scheduled to start this Monday.
Thanks for your help, P
Good morning team! Thanks again for your valuable coaching and guidance. You have made a huge impact on my job search, resulting in two very good offers in a relatively short period of time. I could not have accomplished this task without your assistance. My first day at XXX is December 5th. In the meantime, I’ll be busy wrapping things up at XXX and packing for our next big advenure in life. I will be in touch. You are a top notch professional and I sincerely appreciate all you’ve done for me.
Kind Regards, JJ
You continue to impress from both a professional standpoint, as well as direct case manager, Karen Kirkpatrick, with respect to my professional needs.
Hats off to you and thank you very much. LB
Hello Jen, I’ve reviewed the cover letter and resume that you’ve developed for me. I have to admit that I was blown away by the style and rewrite of the forms. I have no changes to submit.
Many Thanks, JM
Connan, I just approved the letters. I was impressed with the additional detail for each company and appreciate the value that Career Bridge brings to this career search process.
Dear Ms. Battoe, I received the additional material that you sent and would like to take the time to thank you for the informative career coaching that you gave me this week. You had a lot of very insightful and useful advice for me, and I appreciate you taking the extra time to speak with me, which I noticed you did not include in your crediting invoice to Career Bridge to be deducted from my account. Your passion for helping people through the process of their job campaigns is evident and most valuable to people in positions such as mine, and I very much look forward to working with you more in the near future. I hope to talk with you again soon, as I am scheduling additional sessions with you through the Career Bridge website later this afternoon. Have a wonderful and productive day!
I wanted to thank you for your recent help and coaching. It helped me get three good offers, and I recently accepted one. Your ideas and techniques really work well !!!.
Laura, Although I have not yet received the final version of my Career Networking Letter, Career Bridge is already helping in my job search. I recently received my Career Networking Letter, and although it needed some revisions, it had some great verbiage. I used some of that verbiage and used the idea of adding quantifiable achievements to my cover letter and resume. This same day I was doing the Career Bridge company research and noticed that a company where I had previously applied (but had not received a response) had a new opening for the same position. I decided to apply for the position using my new cover letter and resume. My previous ratio of phone interview per application submitted was approximately 40:1. Eight days later, I received an email requested a phone interview – ratio with new cover letter and resume 1:1.
Thank you, A C
