There are never any guarantees when you’re getting hired. But if your materials are optimized and if you have explained how you can help solve the problem; if you understand where you’re going and why – you have a much better chance than most of your competitors.
Do I guarantee that you will achieve these specific results?
I never guarantee anything. Hiring is a human process with many influencing factors. But I promise you this: When you go through this process, you are going to not only feel more confident about your own abilities and accomplishments, but you are going to have an easier time explaining them to an employer. And that is the key to getting the offer.
When you work with me to review your work history, take stock of where you want to be, and do your research, you can expect to feel empowered to talk to your target employers about what you can offer them if they hire you. But I won’t lie: This is work. You will have homework to do, so you can prepare for this process. You will get out of the process what you put into it.
If your materials are effectively constructed, you can expect to see a change as quickly as people have the time to discover you. I never make false promises because we are dealing with other humans here. But I have seen dramatic upticks in the numbers of my clients’ profile views, reach-outs from recruiters, and responses to applications submissions, where before there was silence.
Of course, you can. Many of them are on LinkedIn and I’m happy to share information with you.
When we get together for our initial conversation, I will share with you some samples of my work and answer your questions.
I accept payment by credit card through my bank processor. I do not accept checks.
If there’s a problem or an issue, I am glad to talk with you about it to see what we can work out.
I can never provide you a 100% guarantee that you’re going to get a job. Hiring is human. We never know exactly what is going on in the background. Job hunting is like dating. You have to keep putting yourself out there and eventually, you find a match. What I do promise you is that if you work the process, you will feel empowered to present yourself as the best candidate for the role.
I remain available to you if you ever have quick questions about your job search. And once you’re a client, you remain eligible for special pricing for future services.
The rules for finding a job or pretty much the same, no matter what industry you’re in. Marketing yourself is all about matching what you have achieved and can deliver with what the employer needs. When there are industries that I have not worked with, I always research to find out more about the requirements. And I also partner with you, the client to make sure that we are covering all the bases. During our initial conversation, I will determine if I can provide the services you request. If not, I will refer you to a colleague who may be a better fit.
You could pay more if the scope of the work ends up being greater than what we agreed on. You may also be asked to pay a reinstatement fee if you allow the contract to expire without contacting me. But if more work is needed, I will always discuss it with you first.
Designing a job search and the associated materials is more art than science, and I have a lot of experience. My clients who take my advice end up being successful. Sure, there are people who do things in a radically different way and still get results. However, this is rare. The tried-and-true method is to know your target, know what you deliver, and explain it well.
I work best with people who are highly self-motivated to do the work necessary to find employment.
I do not work with people who expect the process to be quick. Getting a job takes time – as much as 1 month for each year of experience. I do not work with people who expect that I will do all the work required. I don’t “get people jobs.” I provide them the tools to use as they research opportunities and connect with employers. I also do not work with people who believe that fashioning a marketing campaign is clerical work, requiring transcription from one set of documents to another. This is a multi-layered, in-depth process.
I require my clients to be focused and motivated to complete the homework and follow the steps that we have outlined for the job search. You will receive questions to consider. We will have more than conversation about your goals and achievements. You will make a plan for your job search, and I will hold you accountable for following it.
Resume production can take five to 10 days, depending on complexity. The same holds true for the LinkedIn profile and other marketing materials. Every situation is different, and we will always discuss the scope of the work and put a plan in motion that includes a timeline.
Yes. You may pay for services upfront, or split your payment in half. But I may be able to structure a payment plan that will work for your circumstances. Just ask me about it.
Once I produce a resume, its content is yours. However, I do retain the right to use your materials for marketing purposes.
