What Simon Wanted
Simon wanted to work in a clinic where T.E.A.M. (Together, Everyone Achieves More) was one of their core values.
As a gifted surgeon (with a great sense of humour) it was important for Julie to find Simon a clinic where his skills & expertise would be recognised (not only financially) by his peers who were all about ensuring the absolute best outcome for their patients.
By the time Julie started working with Simon, he had multiple job offers on the table all at the same time. Only one of those was Julie’s client.
Julie helped him work through which was the best clinic for him (not her).
After each interview she suggested he write up a list of pros/cons of the job. He had so many interviews in such a short space of time it would’ve been very easy for all the jobs to merge into one and all look the same. Or to confuse which interviewer promised which deal.
She then suggested he make a list and weight what was important to him in his ideal job, and then match those weightings against each job offer.
Simon “tested” out Julie’s client: a two days informal, no obligation, relaxed trial was arranged. This enabled Simon to see whether Julie’s client was for him or not (and vice versa).
He said he knew early on the first day this was where he wanted to work.
It’s having happy endings like this that light Julie up and get her out of bed every morning!
