A powerful résumé should tell the story of your professional career, communicate your personal brand, showcase your accomplishments, and display the unique value that you bring to potential employers. Whether you have never had a résumé or are in need of an update and edit to align your current one with today’s best practices, I can help.
I am a nationally Certified Professional Résumé Writer, Certified Professional Career Coach, and award-winning résumé designer. I am also a member of the Forbes Coaches Council. I will work with you to design a portfolio and develop a strategy aligned with your career goals and create documents that are both visually impactful and contextually rich to position you for career success. My thorough information intake process and collaborative approach set the tone for our work together.
Your goal is my goal. Your success is my success.
Let’s explore how we can partner to help you achieve your goals.
Résumé / CV Consultation and Development
Today’s résumé/CV is a job search tool as well as a marketing and branding document that can determine your future earning potential. Together, we’ll make certain your first impression is an impactful one.
Cover Letter Development
Don’t believe the rumors you have heard about the demise of the cover letter. It’s alive and well, but has evolved to meet the demands of the ever-changing job search market. No longer just a regurgitation of your résumé, a cover letter is meant to be an introduction to your résumé with a compelling call-to-action: a request for an interview. I can help you craft a high-impact cover letter that catches the eyes of hiring managers and other influential readers.
Looking for a more succinct approach to an online application? You may want an “e-note.” Ask me if that’s the right option for you.
Biography / Executive Profile Development
Biographies/Executive Profiles are critical elements of an executive portfolio as well as the perfect vehicle for networking introductions, social media profiles, and online web portfolios. I will create a biography or profile to complement your résumé and provide a condensed and informative narrative of your career to help open the door to future opportunities.
LinkedIn Profile Optimization
A robust and optimized LinkedIn profile is a critical tool in your job search strategy. LinkedIn provides a potential employer the opportunity to learn more about you and allows recruiters searching the platform to proactively engage with you.
I will create (or update) your LinkedIn profile to communicate your personal and value offering through amping up the use of the “Headline,” “Professional Summary,” “Experience,” and “Skills & Endorsements” sections. We will also discuss how to leverage LinkedIn to widen your network and improve your professional visibility through development of a thought leadership presence representative of your unique brand and value offering.
Branded Testimonial Sheet
A testimonial sheet is a comprehensive and concise document created using recommendations from your LinkedIn profile and/or formal letters of recommendation. It showcases the lasting impact that you have had on your colleagues, former managers, vendor partners, clients and subordinates.
