Marisa McMillan | Operations Manager
“I was able to successfully negotiate a position with a cutting-edge company in an industry I’m passionate about for $10,000 more than I made in my corporate gig, all while living in a different city!”
I came to Rose unhappy in my career and thus pretty unhappy with my direction in life. I was being underpaid and over worked in New York’s Corporate America. While I enjoyed the industry I was working in, I felt unfulfilled by the corporate environment; there were endless ladders to climb, a plethora of lateral movements and a major lack of innovation and a general aversion to modernization. I wanted to feel challenged in my career and I wanted to work in a fun, creative and collaborative atmosphere where I could see my ideas in action. I also wanted to move to Boston, but I had no idea how to run an effective job search from New York.
I knew what was wrong in my career, but I didn’t know how to fix it. And then came Rose. Not only was Rose able to help me pinpoint the roles that showcased my skills in an industry I desired, she was able to create a personalized tactical approach to put me ahead of other potential applicants. Rose helped to sharpen the story of my career in a way that was both attractive to employers and encouraged me to feel confident in my skill set. And more than that, she demonstrated a unique quality of emotional support during my job search that was much appreciated. Because of Rose’s help, I was able to successfully negotiate a position with a cutting-edge company in an industry I’m passionate about for $10,000 more than I made in my corporate gig, all while living in a different city!
