Whether your objective is to land a new job, perform your current job more effectively, or both, I am here to assist you with the services that you need to grow and excel in your career. I provide assistance to job seekers as well as those interested in performing their jobs at a higher level of effectiveness.

Assistance for job seekers

1. I start with a "client uncovery." During the initial interview and discussion, I will work with you in a friendly, collaborative way to uncover or identify the skills, experiences and knowledge that define you as a unique individual and job candidate. Throughout the course of these discussions and where appropriate or applicable, I can offer suggestions and strategies for handling such needs as managing multiple career directions or targeting an earlier career direction, or with challenges that include overcoming employment gaps or having held numerous jobs in a relatively short period of time.

2. Then I create your new document (or documents). I carefully craft resumes, as well as LinkedIn profiles, cover letters and other tools, to maximize the value that each client has to offer. The resume that I will create for you will present you as a compelling, memorable candidate by clearly showing the difference you can make and will include key branding or positioning words to underscore the value that you have to offer. In addition, your new resume will be written to align effectively with today's keyword-driven applicant tracking systems.

3. Then you move forward as a stronger version of you! With a new or revitalized resume, you are able to provide a more convincing presentation of value and as a result can increase your ability to secure interview requests and job offers. I have assisted numerous clients in the past with their career goals (see Testimonials) and would welcome an opportunity to do the same for you!

And...if making a career change is a priority for you, I can also assist you by creating a "breakout resume" - a resume that shows employers how your skills and experiences translate or are relevant to positions in new industries or employment sectors.

Assistance for those seeking to perform their jobs more effectively

In addition to offering services to job seekers, I also help people with career support needs. These include assistance with developing customer correspondence, sales or business development communications, sales support content, training information, process documentation, proposals, articles, reports and presentations. The steps in providing these services are similar to those noted above and begin with an initial discussion. If there is a need that you have that is not listed here, please ask as I am continuing to grow my career support services.
