I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for opening my eyes.
As you remember, I was a bit skeptical about using the service. I have known my references for a long time since I had worked with them for years. I left on good terms to start my family. Most of my references had been to my house for parties and family get-togethers.
I decided it was time to go back to work and start getting my new job search in full gear. I was sending resumes out and going on interviews. Interviews that I knew I was qualified for. You reviewed my resume for me and we spoke about interviewing techniques. When you sent me back my reference report, I was mortified!! A person that used to work for me, that I had hired and trained and helped to get promoted. was the one that was bad mouthing me. I never would have known. She actually stated that I was not re-hirable and that I was asked to leave the company because of illness. Not only is that not true, but her boss has asked me to go back to work there 3 times since he found out that I was going back to work.
Maybe she was afraid I would get a job with one of their competitors or try to call on my old accounts that she is selling to now. I am not sure of what she was thinking, but I never would have suspected it. I had a nice conversation with her boss and the situation has been resolved. I got a great job offer last week and I'm really excited about getting back to work.
Thanks for your help.
