Executive - Outplacement
Head of Business Unit - Specialized Therapeutics (48)
I regarded my consultant at KONITZER & TAFEL as my sparring partner. Someone who gives good tips but is the position to challenge the job seeker and give a good reality check – when its needed.
One mustn’t forget that the process of job hunting can be a very lonely business. The entire KONITZER & TAFEL team knows from experience which phases one goes through when one is looking for a new job and a new challenge. The structure which is followed by them is irreplaceable. Whether it’s the compilation of excellent application documents, the practice interviews, or the permanent search for contacts, I felt well looked after during this whole process – otherwise I would have had to find my way alone through the jungle of applications.
Something which I particularly liked was the compilation of a “list of attack”, in which all contacts and activities were listed and updated and added to almost every day. We worked together in a complementary way and the contacts which I had were excellently supplemented by those of KONITZER & TAFEL. This strong coverage finally led to a whole line of contacts, which eventually led to the position I took up.
It is furthermore important to get direct and spontaneous help when interviews have to be prepared or discussed afterwards. I was given the task – by my now employer – to give a presentation for which I only had 24 hours to prepare. Even on such short notice a critique was possible.
To sum up I can really say that the service was very helpful in covering all aspects of the application process. If there is an attractive offer at the end, then even better - and everyone is happy!
