But beyond the financial ROI, perhaps the most significant benefits will be the emotional ones as you: 1) Land a meaningful position you are excited about, with 2) Significantly lower stress and wasted effort versus the option of trying to "go it alone" in your job search.

Interviewing and negotiation can be downright scary, and the pressure is high, because it’s important that you get it right. When I interviewed for a promotion to Chief Technology Officer, it was my first C-level position and I felt WAY out of my depth. Patrick came through for me with great advice and support so that I could negotiate with confidence and land my dream job.  I would absolutely recommend him as a trusted advisor for anyone going through a professional transition.

 "Patrick Farran helped coach me through several major transitions in my career. The support he provided me has been invaluable and has helped me achieve a higher level of satisfaction in my work. Patrick helped me reach my own leadership potential by coaching me to set realistic and time-bound goals that I could attain. As a result of his coaching, I’ve learned how to research available data and advocate for myself more fully. His insights have helped me reach a higher level at work, raising my earning capacity and leadership opportunities. I’ve been able to fill roles that I previously did not realize I could achieve. Patrick leads by example as a servant-leader. He takes care of the people around him as his priority. His idea of success seems to come from being in service to others. I feel fortunate and grateful to have been blessed with having a coach like Patrick in my corner and I highly recommend his coaching services." 

Jill Stasch
Account Manager

 "Patrick’s approach is friendly and purposeful, and demonstrates the utmost professionalism. As someone who’s ‘been there,’ his previous experiences, knowledge, and willingness to provide guidance made him a great resource to bounce ideas off of while navigating the job search, having conversations with recruiters, and getting ready to get started at my new job. I definitely recommend Patrick to anyone looking to make their next career move." 

Bridgar Nayiga
Senior Consultant

 "Patrick has developed a data driven methodology and planning matrix that reduces the job transition process stress significantly. His process brings templates and client data into an easy to understand and follow process to organize the myriad of contacts, applications, companies, and networking. He provides honest and hard hitting feedback on your strengths and weaknesses. He then helps you leverage that knowledge to improve. His method of coaching you through the process, while ensuring you own the process, is great and empowers you when the stress and frustration of the entire transition weighs heavily. Not to mention, I have never seen Patrick without a cheery disposition and ready to help you plow through any obstacle." 

Robert McVay
Managing Partner

 "Having worked closely with Patrick on a number of projects, I can speak to his humble spirit, logical manner, impressive credentials, and absolute professionalism. He has a way of listening that extends beyond typical conversation and ascertaining the best method to help with each individual need. There’s never any air of condescension and he takes the time necessary to ask thought-provoking questions. I don’t trust a lot of people outside my very small family circle, but Patrick is one of them."
