Earlier in the year, the company website for SGES was revamped. It has undergone additional changes today. The homepage now includes a photo stream of Susan Goldberg, the founder and principal, shot during the course of a Wednesday. The stream replaces a static image of her similar to the one in the “who” section of the site, www.susangoldbergsearch.com . We worked with both our graphic designer, Cristian Fleming, of The Public Society team (www.thepublicsociety.com), and the package deal of Jade Dressler, from Plant Agency (www.plantagency.com) and Alvaro (Al) Montagna, from Small Earth VC (www.smallearthvc.com).
Cristian and Susan worked on the idea for the photo streaming while she was formulating the updated branding for the firm. Then, Al captured the core energy of the Susan Goldberg Executive Search brand in the candid photo shots of Susan while she was working. Susan wanted the photographs to ”show me functioning naturally during the progression of a day”. The objective was to catch her at varied times, doing and thinking different things. “I work with people who are multi-dimensional real people, who are not just resumes. I want people viewing the site to understand I am a real person too, not a posed image of a person”. We welcome your feedback to let us know if we accomplished our goal. Thanks to Cristian, Jade and Al for their patience and joint efforts.
Susan Goldberg presented two seminars this week at Pace University’s business school in downtown Manhattan. Sponsored by the Career Services department with the help of Dr. Barry Miller, Ms. Maxine Sugarman and Ms. Genevieve Chorhummel, Susan addressed two different audiences on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Monday’s audience was comprised of Lubin MBA alumni while Wednesday’s seminar instructed current students attending the undergraduate and graduate programs. The alumni program content included information on how to work successfully with recruiters. The student program focused on interviewing skills including how to respond to particularly difficult questions and situations. Audience participation was a key ingredient for both seminars so that the programs could be beneficial for the individual attendees. The programs were well attended. Individual attendees praised the helpfulness of the seminars. A comment from one of the alumni attendees follows:
“Thanks for an informative and well done presentation last night. Despite 20+ years in human resources, I picked up so many new ideas. The seminar was so helpful and I think the people sitting around me got a lot out of them, too.” Barbara D
SGES reworked, reworded, and repositioned the company website, www.susangoldbergsearch.com ( www.sgesconsulting.com), to be consistent with all marketing and sales. The homepage, our purpose, who, news, sges retained search, Hiring 101 pages: all have been updated. There will be other changes in the next few months including the giving back page, and a couple of graphics/visuals. It become important for us at SGES to have a more unique brand that better reflects who we are and would attract like minds to the way we conduct our business and what we stand for as a company: an alternative approach to leadership, a direct honest style, a personal touch, embracing the idea of giving back, environmentally friendly, and open-minded. It’s also a reminder that our business is all about putting people first (not transactions, procedures, technology or accounting).
Special thanks to Simon Sinek for his speech and book, “Start with Why” which was the catalyst for the motivation behind the enhanced marketing efforts.
“Who is Going to Help You?”, article for job seekers and decision makers, written by Susan Goldberg, published this weekSaturday, December 4th, 2010
After many discussions and countless emails and phonecalls about the subject, Susan Goldberg of SGES, a retainer based executive search firm, wanted to write a helpful article detailing the differences between recruiters, agents, headhunters, search professionals, and employment agents; that article was published in the December 3 issue of “Woman Around Town”. Many professionals assume they understand the differences between the titles, but a lot of misinformation exists in the marketplace. For instance, ” I receive a lot of emails requesting that I represent an individual emailer in the job market. I am a people person. I want to help everyone. But that’s not my role. What the emailer doesn’t understand, in a search situation, as a retained search consultant, I don’t work for an individual, I work as the representative of a client’s organization”. ”Who is Going to Help You” was written in an effort to explain situations just like this one. The article is a primer on the various recruiting titles: explaining what each one does, how they get paid, who employs them and who they represent, and how they work. The media and entertainment industries have the widest variety of these types of titles. However, the piece was written for anyone and everyone who wants to learn more about hiring and/or seeking employment. You can read the entire article in the “living around” section of www.womanaroundtown.com or simply click on this link: http://www.womanaroundtown.com/sections/living-around/who-is-going-to-help-you.
