First let me say that working at Cogent Analytics has given me the opportunity to meet and work alongside some of the finest people I have ever encountered in my professional career. We have come to count on each other for learning and information, for moral support, for laughs and encouragement, and for a sense of belonging that I have rarely encountered in my professional life.
Working at Cogent Analytics means supplanting feelings of frustration, bruised ego, anger, lack of self-worth, failure and insignificance with exhilaration, liberation, reward, entertainment, productivity, and knowledge of self, repayment of a debt to society, and a sense of self-worth.
I work in the business development group at Cogent. I reach out to our captains of industry – the owners of small to mid-size companies – that make up the backbone of our nation’s economy. It is critical that I reach as many of them as I can, and that I effectively communicate the value and opportunity associated with the powerful solutions that Cogent offers.
We can make a difference. Our analysts are at the top of their field, and the results of our help speak for themselves. There will always be a challenge for any business to move their mission forward. Some need a more efficient production process; some need more clearly defined management roles, some need instruments to measure progress toward meeting their goals. Some need an orderly preparation to sell a company without losing everything in the process. Some need an outline for how to grow, while others need remedies for avoiding bankruptcy. Each company is unique and requires its own plan to get from where they are to where they want to be. We at Cogent can provide the necessary tools to accomplish that goal, whatever it is.
Cogent Analytics gives me the opportunity to know myself. From the first day of my employment there, I was asked to look long and hard at who I am, what I want, and how much effort I am willing to put forth to obtain it. For the first time in many years I feel like I am in the exact right place, and at the exact right time. I am learning to define myself, develop communication and leadership skills, and build a foundation for achieving my own professional goals while doing good.
