NK CEO, Client since 2005

I have been meaning to … express my gratitude and to share with you how impactful your team’s counsel has been to my career since we first met in the summer of 2005. When I initiated search for the next step in my journey to be a business owner is when the many probing and insightful discussions and the roadmap that [MDL Partners] helped develop turned out to be truly powerful… I stuck the course MDL had helped envision. It took me a year, but I found many opportunities and closed on a terrific opportunity. It’s now been over 4 years, and not a day goes by when I don’t feel blessed. Feels unreal!

BCM Director, Client since 2007

When I started my search, after restructuring eliminated my role, I had 4 goals for my new job: compensation equal to or better than what I had, global role, director title and to work for high tech company or partner headquartered near where I live. It had been my experience that most people end up in a better place than they started when going through a transition like I experienced. It was this hope that helped with the frustration of prospective managers who didn’t return my emails, great interviews that went nowhere and wondering if my job search was ever going to end. I am thrilled to share my new role achieves all 4 goals!...I wanted to thank MDL Partners, an international executive network I have belonged to since I came to Virginia. The networking, interviewing and negotiation techniques they taught me as well as the people I met through them were instrumental in achieving all 4 goals I had for my new role.

DB Managing Director, Client since 2003

Thank you for taking the time to meet. It occurred to me as we were meeting that it has been nine years since I first joined the network. I remember my trepidation ... in retrospect, ... [it] turned out to be a real “deal”. I have the advantage of being a member of an expanding network of executive level managers (peers), the pleasure of meeting and having access to people such as the legendary Norman Strait, the opportunity to share my experiences and insights with others seeking their next leadership positions and the luxury of having virtually the same team in place as was in place in 2003.

I read through the brochure late last night and it is amazing how common sense the approach is but I suspect that almost no one on their own can do this. I didn’t read one thing that I didn’t already know but the thing that hit home to me was the fact that trying to do this alone even in the best of circumstances doesn’t provide you with the sounding board and support structure to put all of the pieces together in a cohesive plan. In addition I suspect that there are techniques that even the most prepared job seeker would not think of individually…

MF Director of Business Development, Client since 2014

I knew deep down that [the MDL Process] would work but it would require work and a considerable investment in time and money. I decided to delay and go about finding a job the traditional way, submitting resumes and never hearing back from hiring managers. Not surprisingly, after 6 months of trying it my way, I came back to MDL and dove in with both feet choosing to trust the team at MDL Partners. I attended my first networking session and found that it was a room of brilliant and motivated men and women who wanted the same thing that I did. Everyone who participated were willing to serve each other unconditionally. I discovered that by working together our combined network was massive and someone in the group always had a connection within an organization I wanted to get in contact with. It was very encouraging to have this level of support throughout the process. My new boss would later tell me that I was extended an offer because I was client of MDL and had made the investment that many do not. That extra commitment and the MDL name went a long way to securing me an incredible position within a vibrant and growing company...My family and I could not be happier about the support we received from the entire MDL team and I will continue to support the MDL network with the hope that I may help others the way others have helped me.

BC Client since 2003

You might recall that I asked you about contacts at [Company ABC] a few weeks ago, and you polled the network for me. DF responded. When we talked, we agreed that the job I was looking at with [Company ABC] was too low for me, but that a better match might be for me to teach courses for his current company, where he is now is Chief Administrative Officer. He forwarded my resume to the right people inside the company, I had an in- person interview, and I’m going to start teaching analytics courses for them. I wasn’t aware that his company even existed, so never would have gotten this work without the MDL network. So thanks a bunch!”

I attended the company Networking events on a regular basis…without these networking meetings, this may have never happened this way. I worked with MDL Partners to refine my resume into a current and appealing style. Networking is essential, and the MDL networking meetings are very helpful and regular meetings at MDL were a helpful “grounding” session for me to keep me going. As everyone out there knows, you have to put in the time in the job search and make that your current job.
