Julie Garwood was a tremendous help while I was navigating a lengthy application process, spanning resume creation, evaluating opportunities, interviewing, negotiating an offer, and making my final decision – she was there for me every step of the way providing professional and objective advice and support.
I am an experienced healthcare actuary, and while I knew I wanted to look for a new job, I wanted to be selective, and Julie provided me a great list of openings and helped me assess which would be the best fit for me. Julie represented me for a number of opportunities which ultimately resulted in a fantastic job offer. I simultaneously had a competing offer from personal connections, and Julie kept my best interests in mind at all times, helping me through the negotiation and decision process with an especially thoughtful approach and communication strategy.
The final salary I accepted was significantly higher as a result of Julie’s advice, and the role is a great fit. I would not hesitate to reach out to Julie again, for either job or candidate seeking purposes, and I would recommend Julie and DW Simpson to any of my peers.
Julie Garwood is one of the best actuarial recruiters I have known in my 30+ years working as an actuary. She is not only bright, diligent, and personable but most importantly wise. She understands the multifaceted complexities behind the decision to switch companies not only includes work considerations but also family and lifestyle. Her holistic thinking and friendly personality give her clients the confidence that they are making the best decision all things considered. Highly recommended!
