“I’m so glad that I was able to work with Janet on Sociology permissions projects in my role as Coordinator for McGraw-Hill. She was on top of every single permission, as I found out whenever I emailed her with a question. I can’t remember emailing Janet without getting a quick and helpful response, even after the project was complete. Our files for these permissions are extremely well organized thanks to the packet of closing documents Janet sent at the end of each project. She was a pleasure to deal with on a personal level as well. I hope to work with Janet on future projects.” January 16, 2013

“Janet has effectively managed, researched, evaluated, collected, and completed many permissions projects for McGraw-Hill Higher Education. Her fee negotiation skills resulted in cost reductions of $6,000 for one of our Criminology textbooks. She also worked on other permission projects in the categories of Anthropology, Women’s Studies, Anthology, and Sociology. She is prompt, thorough, easy to communicate with, and well- organized. She has the ability to multitask with ease and understands the ins and outs of complex permission requests. I'd recommend Janet for any type of academic permissions project.” January 29, 2013

She wants the sales people in her office to be the best they can be and supports them day after day with the same attitude. "Can do" is Janet and she helped many in the office excel buy constantly providing the right support at the right time. Janet is well liked across NDS/Claritas for her ability to handle challenges quickly, train new employees on contract preperation and keep the office running smoothly. The best kind of service one could ask from an Executive Assistant- Loyal to her team and company with years of great experience in an up and coming organization knowing the right way to support a fast paced office achieve their goals.

Dave Chambers, Sales Consultant, National Decision Systems
(colleague) managed indirectly
“I served time in the Chicago office of NDS between 1986 and 1988. One of the few bright spots during my tenure was the Office Manager – a young woman named Janet Woods - who spent the next 21 years with the firm, growing her skillset and responsibility as the office grew, as the company was bought out, then bought out again. And again. Janet survived and thrived many changes over those decades, but not the firm's most recent rounds of layoffs by current owner, AC Nielsen. If you know of anyone looking for a reliable executive assistant, I can recommend Janet. Her next lucky employer will relax in the knowledge that his or her day will be well under control, with Janet having everything organized, no arrangement unattended.” January 14, 2009
Paul Dunfee, Regional Vice President, Claritas
