Your Battle Weapons - Welcome to the Armory!
Our coaches are not "traditional" career counselors-they are executives and recruiters
who have done battle in the corporate trenches. They know what it takes to achieve success
driving an executive career. The number of hours of one-on-one private career coaching
the participant will receive is based on the program he/she selects.
Comprehensive Assessment and Strategic Planning:
Prior to initiating a search, we conduct a comprehensive analysis and definition
of the participant's leadership/management strengths, personality profile, skill
set, and key accomplishment inventory. Extensive testing is conducted along with
intensive consultation from one of our senior associates. This analysis also
includes identification of obstacles that may present problems in the search.
Following the assessment, a strategic career marketing plan is developed to target
positions, industries, or other career opportunities.
Internet Job Search Training and Strategies:
Corporate Warriors is ahead of the wave in Internet-driven search techniques. In
fact, our CEO Donald Straits served as a career advisor to the world's largest
Internet provider, America Online (AOL). We provide intensive Internet job search
training along with ongoing advice on every aspect of Internet job searches.
Innovative Marketing Techniques and Lead Generation:
In addition to all the standard search techniques, we advocate creative approaches
to opening doors of opportunity. We have more than 30 strategies for generating job
leads. For example, beyond networking, we show participants how to build exceptional
partnerships and relationships that lead to jobs, contract assignments, or
entrepreneurship possibilities. In many cases, we also assist participants in
getting published. These published articles generate direct job opportunities as
well as providing credibility to the participant.
Bold Interviewing Strategies:
We actually discourage "interviewing." We demonstrate how to create "business meeting"
environments as opposed to the traditional interview approach, which can be
intimidating and very one-sided.
Compensation and Salary Negotiations:
Comprehensive guidance in the salary negotiation process. Every aspect of the
compensation package is considered and reviewed. If necessary, as a result of our
strategic partnership with an employment attorney, we will provide employment
contract review by an attorney at a special Corporate Warriors reduced rate.
Computer Proficiency Training:
While the majority of our participants have good computer skills, we have discovered
that by providing "tips and tricks," we dramatically improve their computer efficiency
and effectiveness. We focus on using MS Office suite (Word, Excel, Access, and
PowerPoint). During our Internet training, we also provide "tips and tricks" on
the Internet interface.
Writing Skills Training:
Creating high-impact sentences, effective email messages, and powerful documents
requires a special skill set. To enhance a participant's writing communication skills,
we provide "tips and tricks" on effective writing techniques including formatting,
grammar and usage, and punctuation.
Online Career Strategy Manual:
Our clients have password access to a manual describing every aspect of our unique
strategies and tactics. The manual is copyrighted and for exclusive use of our
Website "Members Only" Service and Database Support:
Our website also provides an area that is only accessible by a user ID and password.
We provide direct links to nearly 900 job search Internet sites. There are also
listings of job banks, job lines, and links to other key Internet sites. We also
have proprietary corporate databases for the exclusive use of our participants.
Also included is a special "tips and tricks" reference section. If you wish to
visit this password-protected area, we will arrange a private tour.
This is a Corporate Warriors exclusive, not available from any other outplacement
or career management firm. Instead of the traditional, ho-hum, two-page resume,
we guide the participant in submitting documentation to produce his/her extraordinary
credentials of distinction. These credentials have received praise from hiring
executives and recruiters across the country.
The portfolio includes a results-oriented two- or three-page resume, key accomplishment
summaries (one page each) when appropriate to the selected program, and a statement of
insights relevant to the targeted industry or position when appropriate to the selected
program. Using this portfolio strategy, we consistently help place people at the highest
level, including CEOs, CFOs, COOs, CIOs, and department heads.
Your portfolio may include professionally designed tables, charts, or graphs to
visually illustrate your documented record of leadership and performance.
Our career experts typically spend in excess of 20 hours developing and writing your
credentials of distinction.
After the portfolio is complete, you will receive a computer disk (or e-mail transfer)
of the file. You will also receive a sample printed portfolio in a presentation
folder with complimentary business cards.
Modification of the portfolio is the client's responsibility; however, we will assist
with strategy and editing advice.

Our executive database resource helps you target industries, specific companies, locations, and key executive contacts with access to over 12 million business records. All executive contacts include complete address, phone and personal email. These lists are compiled and updated monthly from a number of sources including business credit reports, annual reports, yellow page directories, business and industry directories and phone verification.
You can select your data by the following categories:
- SIC Code
- Employee Size or Sales Volume
- Geographic Area
- Type of Business
- Contacts by Job Function and Title of Executive
- New Businesses
- Professional Specialty
- Franchise and Brand
- Headquarters & Branches
- Many other selections
(we will attempt to provide data based on your search requirements.)
We customize your search efforts by locating specific companies and executives that are most likely to have an interest in your executive leadership. Typically our searches generate from 250 to 500 results. We do not recommend broad searches for thousands of contacts as this generates irrelevant results. You will be given full access to these lists to use as appropriate. You may conduct up to three unique searches.
Clients can participate in our Leadership Talent Showcase as often as they wish. Typically the showcase goes out about six times a year (every two months), but can vary in frequency.

The Showcase is also disseminated throughout Linkedin Groups via InShare, Facebook and Google Plus. It is also tweeted to key followers.
We will provide introductions to key recruiters, VC's and PE's relevant to your industry or functional area. Through the Warriors Network, described above, you will also receive position announcements not advertised to the public from the recruiters, VC's and PE's.
