The service works particularly well for senior managers and executives. It can also benefit mid-managers who believe they’re ready to advance to the next level.
Problems my service can solve include issues that could stand in the way of your being considered by employers, such as experience gaps, short-term positions, or a step-down in job level. Also, if you have confidential issues you need to talk about with someone trustworthy, I can be that person.
I initially created this service because I discovered I was good at writing résumés and enjoyed doing them. Also, I had a strong background as a former English teacher.
When I worked in the corporate world, I didn’t feel I was using all my best capabilities. Equally important, I wanted to see that what I did mattered to people. Launching a résumé writing service offered a natural next step for me to do that.
If your success matters to you, you care, because I can help open doors to that success. For instance, you might know you’re great at what you do, but the job search challenge is different and you get stuck. You need support and tools you don’t have. I can provide that for you.
I work to showcase the value you bring to employers. That includes identifying and presenting your best selling-points in the résumé. I also look for and highlight any hidden talents you might have overlooked or undervalued.
Clients tell me I’m a good listener and I hear what they’re saying—or, sometimes, not saying. They talk about my services to other people they know—family, friends, coworkers—and recommend me because they trust me.
I try to keep the process simple. Usually we have a preliminary phone consultation. The call lets us see what the situation is and whether we might be a good fit to work together.
Then I provide an email quote that you can review. You haven’t made any commitment yet, so it’s risk-free for you while you think about it.
In most cases, we’ll know by the end of our phone call. If we think it looks promising, I’ll send you a quote. On the other hand, If I think I might not be your best answer, I’ll refer you to other resources.
They’ve helped quite a few of my clients. I can’t claim a 100% success rate, but I get an indication that it makes a difference for many people. Do I hit a home run every time? No. but I don’t know anyone who does. Other factors could affect the outcome that neither I nor the job seeker can control.
Because one size doesn’t fit all, I don’t provide a number in advance. I don’t have enough information yet to know what needs to be done. I want to make sure that when I give you an estimate, it’s one I can stand behind.
When I provide you with a quote, you can decide whether or not it works for you. If not, that’s fine. You aren’t obligated to anything.
