Patina Announces Partnership with NSENG

Milwaukee, WI.  March 5, 2020 – Patina Nation, owned and operated by Milwaukee-based Patina Solutions, is a leading online community for experienced independent consultants, fractional / interim executives, and those in transition looking for their next job. Patina is pleased to announce that the NorthShore Executive Networking Group (NSENG) will be providing a portfolio of various job search coaching products and services to Patina Nation members that are designed to address some of the most challenging aspects of a job seeker’s journey.

“We understand that many of our members are looking for their next fulltime position,” said Mike Harris, CEO of Patina Solutions. “NSENG will provide them with specific tools and insights that can significantly improve and accelerate their visibility and candidacy with prospective employers. This also enables Patina Nation members to drive their job search on their own timeline. At the same time, their Patina Nation membership will continue to offer learning and development, networking and medical and financial planning benefits, along with consideration for interim and full-time positions.”

Marty Gilbert, CEO & Founder of Chicago’s largest job search networking group, said, “over 90% of job search efforts involve a high degree of marketing. As a result, an effective search is reliant on the job seeker’s ability to position, package, message, identify target companies, engage their audience, network into spheres of influence and perform in convincing fashion during job interviews. That, in large part, is what my coaching is all about and how it’s helped over 1,400 professionals to land their next career opportunity.”

Gilbert has developed coaching packages for Patina Nation and will be offering those services to members in all geographic locations across the U.S. Included are a 16-page job search plan document, instructional job search webinar recordings, and one-on-one coaching calls. Patina Nation members will also be able to take advantage of other job search programs offered by NSENG including their bi-weekly meetings, workshops, the NSENG LinkedIn community and weekly newsletters.

Gilbert will also be sharing coaching tips in two free webinars that will be offered to Patina Members in 2020 – the first of which will cover “8 Ways to Shorten Your Job Search” on March 11th at 12:00CT.
