I am a highly successful executive recruiter and salary expert, and I am passionate, even obsessive, in wanting to help you get the compensation you deserve. In addition, I ensure that you avoid the strategies too many employees use when asking for a raise. These are strategies destined to fail. Those failed strategies are why so many great employees are under-compensated.
By following my advice, you’ll discover how to leverage your skills, accomplishments, reputation, and personality to get the pay raise you deserve.
I always had a flair for and attraction to helping others. Even as a small child I always wanted to help those in need. After a stint in the U.S. Army, and finishing college and graduate school, I began working in the accounting field. I worked my way up to Controller. What I liked best about being a controller was helping my staff learn and grow.
While working as a controller, I taught for a number of years as a college evening instructor in business, including accounting. Over time, I got bored with the accounting aspect. I’d used placement agencies, on occasion, to hire employees for my accounting department. This fascinated me. It seemed like fun, had potential for earning much more money than accounting, and I could help others get what they wanted. So I changed career focus and moved to running the office for an accounting placement firm.
“Norman not only got me two major positions, but secured me 47.5% in pay increases”. . . . Bill Rice, M.S., Environmental Planner
Over time, I excelled and hired staff. Eventually, I quit and opened my own firm. I have been a successful executive recruiter for over 29 years and literally have helped hundreds of people get better positions, where they made (often) significantly more money. Countless people have benefited from my hand holding over the years on how to best market themselves. This is one of my consulting strengths. Many of my clients have been hired at significantly more money.
In early 2005, I wrote an article on the subject for a large metropolitan regional newspaper. Additionally, I give radio interviews on the subject of pay raises. I help people determine if they are likely to get a healthy pay raise.
My front-line experience in executive recruiting, college teaching, business management, and negotiation experience makes me uniquely qualified to help professionals who are earning over $75,000 annually get the pay raise they deserve.
“Norm thoroughly prepped me and gave me the confidence necessary to get more money. It was like having a personal coach by my side. I’m making great money at a terrific company because of him”. . . . Daniel Catania, B.S., Staff Accountant
Another accomplishment that I am particularly proud is that after my father died, in 2001, I wrote and published a journal for adult children and their dads. The journal is used to create a legacy on the lives of the readers’ fathers. Often, we adult children, take our dads’ existence for granted, and sometimes we don’t take the time to really get to know him outside of a few obvious things like maybe he likes baseball, football, chess, or hunting.
Information on the journal can be found at www.understandingdad.com. I had a major interview published a few years ago on Father’s Day regarding my experiences and my book.
Thank you for your interest in my background. I hope to be able to help you get some of the things in life that can come from a significantly higher pay check.
