Director of Training - Customer Management Excellence Center.
Connie Mahan provided expert coaching during my career transition. Her longevity in the field has helped her build a terrific knowledge base, yet she remains up-to-date on the latest best practices in the area of career transition. Connie's coaching helped me stay focused on those activities that were the highest priority, and she added best practices to my job search that helped me obtain multiple offers from which I was able to choose the right job. I most certainly would have been less successful without Connie's help.August 21, 2012.
Even though I did not work directly with George, his firm managed the marketing of my career assets during my employment transition (working with Rick). I cannot say enough good things; from both a financial return aspect, to the heartfelt compassion assisting me along the rocky journey. Thanks.
Meridian Group has been very professional and personable to work with. They have worked around my schedule and made it easy for me to meet at times convenient for me. It has been great to work with experts that have the time, talent and creative thought process to help me further my career endeavors, and work on my resume with an outside thought. Assessing my talents and skills and then transferring those skills into constructive, explainable, and quantifiable statements on my resume has been a tremendous asset. Being able to meet with someone who can analyze and help dig further into my abilities and true interests and then provide career direction has helped me in discovering more about my talents and abilities and applying them in my career search.

Data Analyst at CDG, a Boeing Company.
I highly recommend Connie and Meridian Group for their professional networking and consulting services. They offered great advice on common pitfalls to avoid and strategies for networking.
I went from 20 LinkedIn contacts to over 300 by using the simple tips for establishing contacts. An appointment with Connie at Meridian always re-energized the job search process when it became frustrating.
And through persistence, I found a great opportunity. Now, if (when) the ever-changing job market impacts me again, I know Meridian will be there to help my transition.

CEO at Chicot Memorial Medical Center.
The Meridian Group ,as represented by Connie Mahan, did a very professional job assisting me during my transition time. They provided a first class resume service in a timely manner, did 'mock' interviews at my request, and worked to provide networking opportunities for me. It is a good company to work with and can prepare you for the hard work of finding that next job or career. Connie also provided counseling when I was considering a complete career change.
Denise St. Peters
Business Development Specialist at American Home Care.
Before working with Connie, I was averaging 1 or 2 interviews a month. Now I am averaging between 4 to 6 interviews a month. She revised my resume, practice for interviews and assisted in developing the right way to answer interview questions. She has also given me the self-confidence to apply for positions out side my immediate experience- to reach higher. I appreciate Connie's patience, coaching and the helpful hints on how to network.
Scientist II, New Technologies Lead at EMD Millipore.
I have been working with the Meridian group for two months now and I am very impressed with their professionalism and expertise. I was employed by the same company for 17+ years and reentering the job market was totally foreign to me. Connie is a dedicated and very friendly individual to work with. When my job search concludes I will absolutely stay in touch with her and consider her a good close friend of mine.
Rick Lord, MBA
Experienced Sales Manager.
Connie is very personable and has a vast experience in refining executive talent in the Saint Louis market. She looks to find the strengths we have as individuals and then coaches to what direction would be a fit. The networking of the group is helpful, there are opportunities with the group that can land you information meetings. Once you follow the program they will coach you to maximize your chances of interviewing and then once you have the job they make themselves available for future consults to discuss future promotion or career path changes. I've enjoyed working with Connie and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to make a career change.
