JMO Experience with Cameron-Brooks

The following blog post is written by a January 2011 Conference candidate who is now a Cameron-Brooks alum and will start his career soon with a leading consumer packaged goods company in Brand Management.  I know that he is “singing” the praises of Cameron-Brooks but he does a very good job of highlighting the Cameron-Brooks transition experience.  Joel Junker


This is lengthy – but well worth it! UNBELEIVEABLE experience with Cameron-Brooks!

BLUF: Hands down, Cameron-Brooks was the best career choice I could have made. I had 13 interviews with some of the most renowned companies in the country, and every position was specifically for a Developmental Candidate that only C-B could garner.  The opportunities blew even my high expectations out of the water – just incredible!

I just recently completed the January/February 2011 Career Conference in Austin, TX, and have taken an unbelievable opportunity with my #1 company.  I started working with C-B in August 2009, and encourage anyone who is even mulling over the idea of getting out of the military to start working with C-B as soon as possible.  Starting early will afford you and the C-B team more time to work closely together and figure out what career path you would like to take, as well as what career fields you might be a great fit for. 

I’m a believer of the old adage “you don’t know what you don’t know.”  Cameron-Brooks does an absolutely phenomenal job at educating you on all the options that are available to you, as well as giving you expert advice on developmental positions that might interest you.  Just as important, C-B will place you into interviews for the specific career fields you desire.  I wanted to start my career in Brand Management, and C-B worked extremely hard to bring only the best opportunities to the Career Conference.

The DPP Program was just incredible; from the reading program to the self-assessments that helped me better understand myself and my accomplishments.   Without the program, and the dedicated help from the entire C-B team, I never would have been as successful as I was in my interviews.

The effort you put into your preparation has a direct correlation to your success in your interviews.  Your career change is the starting point for the rest of your life – maybe a 20-30 year career.  It is without a doubt worth the dedicated preparation, and C-B will help you prepare in exactly the right way.

Lastly, all of your hard work will certainly be rewarded – the opportunities at the Career Conference will absolutely blow your mind.  I interviewed with many of the leading companies in their industries, and every position was a Developmental Position with amazing growth potential.  I say this with every bit of honesty and awe in my body- you will NOT be disappointed! 

C-B has been the leader in JMO recruiting for over 40 years – and there is a reason for it.  Put your trust in C-B, do your part in the preparation and you will set yourself up for success! Without a doubt, there is no better option out there.  The C-B team is beyond dedicated to your success and is an absolute pleasure to work with.  They will help you every step of the way, and they’ll do it with a smile!  Please, do not miss this opportunity to start your new career in one of the many amazing opportunities that only C-B can bring to you!  You certainly deserve it!

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all about my experience with C-B, I’d be glad to help!
