Resumes

Resumes are more than a list of job responsibilities. In fact, they are critical marketing documents which must survive increasingly sophisticated Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) and, if successful, capture the attention of prospective employers by clearly presenting your value, qualifications, and experience in a compelling way. I will work closely with you to create an attractive, ATS-compatible resume which will emphasize your accomplishments and expertise, and clearly describe how you can benefit your targeted organization or industry.

LinkedIn Profiles

Recruiters and hiring authorities may choose to review your resume first, and then your LinkedIn profile – or they may decide to do the reverse. The one inescapable fact, therefore, is that a stellar LinkedIn profile is essential at every stage in your career. I will develop a keyword-rich Headline and Profile that will capture readers’ attention and increase your online visibility.

Prices vary depending on complexity.

Cover Letters

Yes, should still have one! Your cover letter too, is a marketing document, and may be the first written communication from you to be seen by an employer. It serves as a complement to your resume because it allows you to include valuable details and relevant information that does not lend itself to the streamlined format of a resume. I will create a cover letter that effectively introduces, supports, and augments your resume.

Career Coaching

Career coaching is not the first tool many job seekers think about when embarking on a job search. So how can a career coach be of benefit to you?

Imagine that you are an athlete with tremendous promise. Now imagine that you have a coach who knows your strengths, your weaknesses, your abilities, your dreams and your goals – and who has the knowledge and training necessary to help you develop your unique talents and abilities to their full potential. A career coach does much the same thing, but their expertise lies in showcasing your skills and achievements.

A coach is goal-oriented and results-driven, will guide you through your job search, and provides you with valuable information unique to your specific career goals and job search.

I will work closely with you in examining your background, goals, and aspirations and help you clarify, plan and prioritize your career decisions so that you can take the appropriate steps towards a career that is professionally, financially, and emotionally fulfilling.

Public Speaking

I welcome the opportunity to share my knowledge and perspectives on resume and cover letter writing, job search strategies, interview preparation, career management, success on the job, or business etiquette with your group or organization, or a topic of your choice. Previous presentations have included “Success and Your Internship” for the Milwaukee Metropolitan Area Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Program, “The Big ‘So What?’ Question” for the National Resume Writers’ Association Annual Conference, and “Resume Tips & Job Search Techniques” for Grafton, Wisconsin’s USS Liberty Memorial Public Library. I have also presented numerous seminars and classes for Concordia University Wisconsin graduate, undergraduate, and continuing education students on topics ranging from career exploration to job searching and interviewing.
