Curious about how career planning works at Hollstadt? Here is a real life example of how you can grow in your career with us:
Let’s follow Beth* (real name not used to protect privacy) through her career at Hollstadt. Beth started with Hollstadt 5 years ago as a Project Coordinator. Over that time, the Hollstadt team met with Beth on a regular basis to understand what her short and long term goals were, where she felt she had gaps to fill to achieve those goals, and built out a personalized plan. Throughout multiple contracts and clients, we worked with her to fill her experience and knowledge gaps, gathered feedback where available, and helped her grow as a professional. She took on extra duties while on contract, including the Consultant Coach role for Hollstadt. Over the last 5 years, Beth has earned multiple promotions and raises and it has been fulfilling for her and Hollstadt to watch her flourish.
