From a Candidate

“While living in Minneapolis, I got a call from a recruiter about a design position in the Princeton area. I’d received calls like that before, and I wasn’t eager to relocate. Still, I decided to let her connect me with the prospective employer: Bob Denby.

 

I expected a fast-talking East Coast type. But I was taken by how mellow and gracious Bob was on the phone. I decided, after having lived in the Midwest for my entire life, that it might be good to see what Bob and Princeton had to offer.

 

I traveled to New Jersey and had my interview. Then, the night before I was to return home, Bob called me at my hotel. He asked me to join him in the morning for a tour of the area. He didn’t know this at the time, but I’d already decided to pass on the position. I just didn’t feel ready to start my life over again. Nevertheless, I took him up on his offer.

 

Bob picked me up in the morning personally. What followed was the most wonderful introduction to Princeton and the surrounding communities, a casual visit with another creative director at the company, and a chance to meet Bob’s wife, Kate, with whom I immediately clicked. We went out for a very nice lunch together in Lambertville.

 

The experience made a real impression—as over the course of those three hours, I changed my mind. I decided to move to Princeton, join Bob’s company, and start a new life.

 

I worked with Bob until his retirement from Jack Morton, and we remain good friends to this day. I’ll always be glad I took his phone call, and then his tour. My life changed for the better when I moved to the East Coast. To a great degree, I know I have Bob to thank for it."
