    San Francisco, California

    Mauri Schwartz, President of Career Insiders, is a leading figure in the San Francisco Bay Area career management community with clients nationwide. Working with companies that need outplacement services as well as with individual job seekers, she has an outstanding success rate in helping clients achieve their career goals. According to Mauri, "My job is to help my clients get jobs. My success is reflected in their success. My favorite feedback from a coaching client is, “I did everything you advised and used the custom tools you provided, Mauri, and I got the job!” Or from another, "They offered me a position and I took it! Our interview prep sealed the deal with this job." Mauri is a frequent speaker at professional conferences, job fairs, and student career panels, and she has provided services as an Adjunct Adviser at the Career Center at the Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley. Mauri has a rare combination among career consultants - highly technical experience with an MBA education. Having held many of the technical positions of her clients, she knows exactly how to help them be successful in making their next career move. In addition, with her wide range of business expertise, she has been able to assist executives in diverse industries to advance their careers. Mauri's motivational style uses techniques that combine old fashioned interpersonal relationship building skills with the latest technological tools. She is a professional "people person" with the ability to engage an audience and build a relationship based on many years of professional experience. Her talents lie in her attention to the details of every aspect of the relationship. In addition, Mauri provides executive level talent acquisition with her sweet spot including senior level management roles in the functional areas of Marketing/Sales, Finance, Human Resources, and Technology. Here's feedback from a hiring manager, “Mauri understands our business and quickly 'got' what we were looking for, nailed it on the head. She has an amazing ability to find great people.” Prior to founding Career Insiders, she successfully recruited and established recruitment departments for a diverse client base, ranging from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies in financial services, biotechnology, software, IT consulting, and other industries. Previously, Mauri enjoyed a successful high tech career with such companies as IBM and McKesson. In her early days as a technical professional with IBM, she developed mission critical software for the US Navy.

    "Mauri is great at working with people, exceptional at assessing people, she is smart, inquisitive, and perceptive. All things that make her a top talent manager."...Cheryl Paterson, Senior Vice President, Development, PeopleStrategy "I recently hired Mauri Schwartz to provide outplacement services. The results were outstanding! She provided resume, search strategy, and interviewing services as well as ongoing coaching to ensure that our laid off staff would be successful in this competitive job market. In fact, one person obtained a new job before his official termination date. I am very impressed with the attention to detail and focus on making sure that our employees could clearly and positively articulate their strengths and accomplishments. The effects were dramatic. I don't know how she does it, but Mauri has a way of working with the basics to ensure that job seekers will be successful." …Guy DeFlorio, Chief Technology Officer, Mutual Materials Company
