By: Harrington & Reed, Inc.
THIS MAY MARK THE FIRST TIME A KEY EXECUTIVE, WHO WAS PREVIOUSLY UNKNOWN TO A COMPANY, HAS EVER BEEN HIRED WITHOUT BEING MET IN PERSON...A TRUE TESTIMONIAL TO THE QUALITY AND POWER OF THE NETVYOU INTRO VIDEO!!
This is a landmark event for the online video intro concept Harrington & Reed has worked so diligently to develop over the past five years. To view Mr. Lee's NETVYOU video intro online, click http://www.harringtonreed.com/?
Mr. Lee has a background in Trust Operations, so he partnered with Harrington & Reed CEO, D. Christopher Jenkins, to identify a target list of 7 Trust Companies based in Reno, NV, but without a branch in the much larger Las Vegas market. Without waiting for an "opening" to be published, each of those CEO's was Fed Exed Mr. Lee's package of his custom resume, executive briefing, UPshot page, and NETVYOU intro video mini-DVD, which Harrington & Reed provides in addition to hosting the intro video on their http://www.harringtonreed.com website.
Two of the CEO's called him, saying they were very impressed, and Mr. Lee was hired by one of them to open the firm's new Las Vegas office in late July, 2008.
It is also important to realize that Mr. Lee had no competition for the position, since a position was never advertised. Mr. Lee and Mr. Jenkins researched the situation and trusted the logic of anticipating the company's need and presenting Mr. Lee to fill it.
This gave Mr. Lee a tremendous advantage, since no one else was under consideration. Both CEO's who called him said they respected Mr. Lee's initiative and intelligence. They also were impressed by his use of the new online video technology to be seen and heard at the highest level. Mr. Lee did not follow the usual practice of emailing his resume to the H.R. Department or to the company's website. He put "himself" in front of the CEO, and the results were immediate.
Of course, Mr. Lee was also wise enough to be working with Harrington & Reed to develop this successful career strategy and to arm himself with the cutting-edge tools and technologies to make it happen.
