He deserves much of the credit for my excellent new career position.

He helped me pull together the numerous nuances of positions I had held, experiences I had accumulated, and skills I had learned into a cohesive message of the seasoned leader I had become. He positioned me quite well not just for pursuing new jobs, but also to see and explore a much wider variety of opportunities available, including different employment structures and different industries. I put my faith in him, and he exceeded my expectations. He deserves much of the credit for my excellent new career position. I highly  recommend Jeff to other business leaders.”

Above and beyond the call of duty!

That’s how I would describe the service I received from Teri as my career coach. Teri had ideas for my career and saw opportunities for me that I would have never thought of for myself. Her ability to connect me to people who were extremely helpful in a strategic way with my career exploration was incredible. And, when I shifted gears in the direction I wanted to pursue (more than once) Teri was patient, encouraging and always asked me great questions to help me think through my decisions. I am definitely in a better place today thanks to her guidance and I truly appreciate her personal, caring approach. Thank you, Teri!

Her guidance enabled me to articulate to myself and to my network the kind of organization that I wanted to be associated with.

“Working with Julie during my “transition” was exceptionally positive. She helped me to really examine myself and define what I wanted to be “career happy”. Her guidance enabled me to articulate to myself and to my network the kind of organization that I wanted to be associated with. This focus allowed me to be patient for the right opportunity and to not just accept whatever was presented. I highly recommend The Bauke Group’s services. Her approach is straight forward and was appropriately challenging when I needed it.”

Vice President, Manufacturing, Gold Medal Products

With Teri’s help and encouragement I was able to land my dream job much quicker than I expected[…]

I worked with Teri at a time when I knew I was ready for the “next act” in my career, which was to transition away from CPG sales, but I had a lot of competing ideas about what I wanted to do. Teri was a great listener and coach – taking me through exercises and conversations that helped me to unlock and embrace the work I wanted to pursue next. Because I was transitioning into something totally different, Teri had to work with me to completely restructure my resume, build a marketing plan for myself as well as a network to help me understand the type of opportunities that might interest me. Teri is very passionate and patient with her clients. She truly cares about their journey as well as their outcome. With Teri’s help and encouragement I was able to land a dream job much quicker than I ever expected, and now we’re working on a 30/60/90 plan to ensure I start out my new career prepared and ready to make an impact. I highly recommend Teri and the Bauke Group to anyone who’s is struggling to make decisions about the future of their career. Teri and her team will help you build confidence, focus and a plan to take control of your future career path.​”

“I have been thrilled with my work with Jeff. I received an incredible number of positive comments on the quality and effectiveness of my resume. Jeff is very knowledgeable about the process of networking your way to your next job and it worked for me. He provided wonderfully positive support throughout the process.”

Diana Collins

Major Gifts Officer, Episcopal Retirement Homes

I found a great new job, and without her help I’m not sure I would even have been able to start looking.

“I have long had a policy against doing …. recommendations, but needed to break it this one time to recommend Julie. I went to Julie to help with a career transition that was going to take me into a whole new (then undetermined) industry. She worked with me to figure out what I liked doing and what I was good at. She then revamped my resume and helped me tell my story in a way that would translate the things I’ve done into a language that people in the new world could understand and appreciate. I found a great new job, and without her help I’m not sure I would even have been able to start looking.”

I had the pleasure of working with Teri at The Bauke Group. As my Strategic Career Coach she provided the support that I needed to focus and develop career opportunities. I appreciate the guidance and effort given to first determining career direction and vision. Based on this vision, Teri coached me through each step of the process, even on-boarding into my new role. She was always available when I needed her and held me accountable when my focus was lacking. I recommend Teri’s service to anyone struggling to identify the next step in their career.

Leslie Kish

Director Strategic Partnerships, Cincinnati Works

Even though Jeff had been working with me for a long time, he doubled down and continued to work with me to find the right opportunity.

“Jeff is an amazing partner and someone I loved working with. His network and insights are incredibly helpful. I hired him when I was due to be laid off, and that layoff didn’t come as expected. I wanted to find something else, but I was working 60 hours a week or more. Even though my progress was slow, Jeff stuck with me all the way, always encouraging. I finally did lose my job suddenly and unexpectedly… Even though Jeff had been working with me for a long time, he doubled down and continued to work with me to find the right opportunity. Others would have lost interest; Jeff stayed with me and I’m so grateful. I can’t recommend him highly enough!”
