In one sense, navigating a job search or a career is similar to navigating the open water on a sailboat. When sailing, it is important to understand what you can’t control (the weather and elements) vs. what you can (your boat, your equipment and your preparation). With a job search, it is equally important to know what you can’t control (employer responses) vs. what you can (your preparation – especially with such essentials as your resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile and interviewing skills). Regarding either pursuit, the key is to identify your direction or goal and then manage the variables that will affect your ability to realize it.
When it comes to your career goals, do you find yourself continually submitting your resume and cover letter and never receiving any feedback? Let alone interview requests? Or, do you spend time repeatedly tweaking your resume and cover letter but getting nowhere because the end product does not seem quite right or does not reflect you well? I help clients who are fed up with “digging deeper and deeper” and not getting results or making progress with their career goals. If you are ready to consider another perspective or approach, I would welcome an opportunity to have a conversation with you.
The primary focus of my business is assisting people with career goals and situations that include advancement opportunities, career changes (both within and across industries and employment sectors), and career re-engagement in overcoming periods of inactivity or unemployment as result of layoffs or other circumstances. My services include resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn profiles, portfolios, bios, personal statements and interview coaching. In addition, from time to time I assist clients, such as small business owners and entrepreneurs, with services that include marketing and content development.
Over the years, I have worked with clients that include professionals, managers, executives and members of the skilled trades across a wide range of industries and employment sectors, including healthcare, government, education, IT, financial services, manufacturing, construction, and transportation and logistics, as well as the fine arts and other creative fields.
Regardless of the particular client, each one has come to me with a similar objective: to increase their ability to generate interview requests and job offers by first better defining and organizing their key strengths and experiences to present a more compelling picture of value to employers.
If you would be interested in exploring possibilities for presenting your strengths and experiences in a way that optimally aligns with an employer’s interests, I would be happy to speak with you. I can promise you a friendly, no-obligation, productive discussion in which I will honestly talk to you about your needs and objectives and how I may be able to help you.
“In my job search since sending out the resume you created for me, I have had three job interviews and yesterday I received a solid job offer that I will be accepting. I wanted to let you know that I am beyond pleased with the resume you prepared, as I feel it showcases my career history and skills well. People who I have shown my resume to think it looks great. What I paid for your service was well worth the value I received.”
