When You're Not Available

When anything changes that may affect a client—especially his or her ability to reach you—it's helpful to tell everyone involved in advance.  If you're going to be out of touch for more than 24 hours, it's important to have a reliable backup in place.

In the event you get into an interview or negotiating situation where you need help, my teammate, Eleanor Bond, is the best senior executive consultant in the business. She knows your situation and will provide good, strong advice.You may reach her at:

My search has been moving along nicely.  Have made a number of good contacts, including a number of interviews. No offers on the table to date.

I won't be able to meet with you this week, will give you an update when you return.
Have a great trip,
