Initial Consults

Initial Consults

Initial Consults are an opportunity to meet with the Capital Resource Network staff and learn about the concierge services available through the CRN.  All information exchanged is strictly confidential.

The Initial Consult may occur in advance of a client’s final offer letter or early-on in the transition process.  The CRN serves as a local resource, helping provide a head-start with relocation and information about the Capital Region.

An Initial Consult in advance of employment does not imply a commitment.  It simply helps clients explore options, offers an alternate perspective, and provides insights on the full range of services that would be available to the candidate.

The CRN is a neutral party, and clients can ask important questions to assist in making an informed decision about moving to the Capital Region. Discussions may span a variety of non-employment topics such as housing, schools, day care, elder care, regional activities, climate and entertainment.
