Producing a well-written, accomplishments-focused résumé is a collaborative process and each person offers potential employers unique qualifications, experiences, and talents. The résumé development service includes an intake consultation phone call of 45 to 90 minutes to discuss your current résumé, work history, and career objective.
Many of my clients have remarked how this intake consultation feels like a job interview. The difference is that this is a safe place to practice how you might answer questions. There are no right or wrong answers; the goal is to prepare not only your résumé for the application process, but also to give you an idea of how you can prepare yourself for an interview.
Turnaround time for your new résumé is typically 5 to 7 days.
Also included is a service delivery phone call of 30 minutes when we will review your new document in PDF and incorporate any edits that you would like. Your final document will be delivered via email in MS Word, PDF, and ASCII.
Project quotes are based on your years of experience and the amount of time required to produce your custom document.
Cover Letter Writing
Imagine walking into a room full of strangers and striking up a conversation – without introducing yourself and beginning in the middle of the story you wish to convey. The person might ask questions to figure out who you are and what you are trying to communicate. Or the person might just walk away in awkward silence. Sending an unsolicited résumé without the cover letter can lead to the same type of rebuff.
A cover letter introduces you to the targeted employer and briefly explains why the reader should continue on to your résumé.
LinkedIn Profile Development
LinkedIn is a key business networking tool used across the globe. Creating a compelling profile is one aspect of your career marketing efforts that should not be overlooked. In addition, the LinkedIn profile is an element from your job search efforts that you will take forward with you as you progress through your career. It is worth the investment in yourself to develop a focused, customized personal brand and to take the time to manage that brand throughout your career.
Veterans and First Responders
As both a veteran and the spouse of a veteran, I am always honored to work with current and former members of our military. The men and women in uniform have amazing skills to offer the civilian work force.
I am happy to offer veterans and first responders a free cover letter when they invest in the résumé and LinkedIn profile development service.
I strive to provide personalized service for each project. With the intake consultation, document delivery session, and other check-in points via telephone, clients receive about 2 hours of individual attention, in addition to the time to evaluate existing documents or materials and to create, review, edit, and finalize new career documents. While email is a helpful tool, it does not replace the value of talking directly. Since each person's career history is unique, the process to develop new career documents is tailored, rather than a "one size fits all" approach. We will work together to help you reach your peak!
