My business was created from my personal and professional journey of job fit, (hence the business name, “Better Job Fit”).
During the height of my professional career, working for a Fortune 500 pharmaceutical company, I was working in my strengths of training, education and business development, knowing how to leverage other people’s strengths for success. I created a unique niche in the ophthalmic industry, possessing clinically-technical skills as well as sales traits, which combined are quite rare. In the midst of the financial crisis in 2007 and a company transition, I was recruited to join a competitor company, which was in the midst of acquiring/merging with two other companies at the same time. Being mindful of my move, interviewing for “right fit” with my, ‘then’, manager, I felt that I was in alignment with my job description/duties, as well as with the hiring manager, an increase in pay, life was great!
Two months later, my entire life changed. A new manager was assigned, whose management style was fear-based and high on control. I went from being in a highly independent position, working in my strengths, to being micro-managed, bullied and coerced, both emotionally and physically. At the end of 6 months, my mental and physical health started to suffer greatly, being diagnosed with adrenal burnout. After transitioning out, (with pending legal action against the company), my marriage took the biggest toll, ending in divorce in 2009.
As a Phoenix rises out of the ashes, so did Better Job Fit, Inc. My contrast experience from thriving and working in my life’s strengths and purpose to being unknowingly and involuntarily cast into a position of failure, became the motivation to educate businesses and individuals on the importance of understanding Behavior Diversity™ and consciously aligning people to jobs, objectively, strategically and scientifically, for success.
