Pace Alum Coaching: Positive Repositioning

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

Pace University had its annual Fall Mini Career Coaching night on Wednesday sponsored by Dr. Barry Miller, Manager Alumni Career Programs and Services.  SGES was invited to attend as a professional coaching and executive search firm.  During the evening, Susan found she was giving the most advice to people who were employed but were looking to transition into another field.  The one assumption that they all were making was that they were at a disadvantage because they didn’t have much, if any, experience in the industry they were considering.  Their attitude of fear and doubt dissipated  into an alternative mindset of confidence and determination after speaking with Susan from SGES for a few minutes.  “The best part of the evening was watching  faces move from apprehension into smiles. Repositioning their thought process and assumptions were what these people needed and weren’t receiving from friends, colleagues or other coaches.  It helps when I can talk from my own experience: having changed fields a couple of  times and also having executed searches in a wide variety of industries.” It was a very satisfying experience for Susan to be able to give back to the university where she attended the graduate program in business and received her MBA. We hope that the people Susan met will be able to reinvigorate their job searches with a positive spin which will be a great push toward them achieving their desired results.  We welcome feedback from Pace Alums.

SGES Seminars at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business

Saturday, March 12th, 2011

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

“Who is Going to Help You?”, article for job seekers and decision makers, written by Susan Goldberg, published this week

Saturday, 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.  You can learn more about the details of conducting a retained search by visiting, www.susangoldbergsearch.com/search_sges.php and you can read about Susan Goldberg and Susan Goldberg Executive Search Consulting, SGES, by visiting: www.sgesconsulting.com  or www.susangoldbergsearch.com .
