Owning my performance with the MORE model helped me understand my valueandenvision my “end game” duringthe interview process

So many books do not find the correct tone to reach their audience, yours is brilliant andit is not surprise you are heading one of the very best recruitment firm in the world.

The MORE model combined with coaching was extremely helpful in determining my worth. After a series of back and forth negotiations, I received a final offer that was $60K above the original offer.

I was looking to find my inner hustle. Advance has been extremely helpful in providing tools, resources, strategies, and helping to move the process along.

There are memorable points in untangling the not so mysterious interview process for both sides of the interview table.

You really hit the mark with constructive, relevant, and concise guidance for candidates.
