How We Work
Elevate Your Career Options with the Right Personal Marketing Documents
Personal Branding | Career Strategies | Resume Writing | Cover Letters | LinkedIn Summary | Interview Prep
Assisting a client with resume and career services is a rather personal service that requires a mutual commitment to a successful relationship. It is important that each of us feels comfortable and trusting of one another. Sometimes the "fit" or rapport is missing through no fault of either party, and both must move on. My approach to career services is to assist you with wraparound resources to ensure that you are well prepared to pursue your career or lifestyle goals confidently.
Typical Work Progression
The first step is to get clarity on the appropriate target, which often requires industry research on my part—resume development can be complex.
Initially, we have a short no-obligation exploratory conversation to confirm your career destination and determine if I can help you on your journey. You can book your no-fee, 15-minute career Q&A chat here.
An exploratory assessment takes approximately 30-45 minutes and incurs a $65 charge. You may book and pay for your appointment here. If we enter into an agreement, the $65 is subtracted from the total fee.
All information is kept confidential whether you become our client or not. Work will not commence on your project until we sign a letter of agreement, receipt of payment in full, and we hold an in-depth client interview. This is the general progression of our delivery of services.
All clients complete my Intake Questionnaire before committing to an agreement.
Distance is not a factor. I have clients nationwide, and we use video conferencing technology to facilitate our communications.
Most services for a typical engagement take about 7-15 business days and include a selection of any of the following elements:
- Personal Branding and Coaching
- Clarify career objectives personally and professionally
- Create a branding presentation of you and your unique value
- Use assessment instruments and interview process to discover your natural strengths, skills, work preferences
- Career Exploration and Strategies
- Explore viable industries for compatibility
- Research appropriate environments and desired positions
- Resume Development
- Identify work accomplishments to support your value
- Write your resume in formats for humans and applicant tracking systems (ATS)
- Career Documents
- Refine or write your LinkedIn profile summary statement or cover letter/e-note documents
- Interview Preparation
- Provide interview tips, mock interviews, or video interview preparation
My clients leave with a confident sense of their value, viable personal marketing documents and a well thought out strategy.
Every client arrives with unique career objectives; therefore, you receive a customized agreement, suited to your circumstance.
Generally, resumes for nonsupervisory positions start at $375.00. If you are a manager or professional, resumes start at $425.00. Resumes for executives and C-level positions start at $550.00. Please contact me to request a full pricing guideline for my services.
Consider the value of this investment over the lifespan of your career, especially if you elevate your earning power and find the perfect fit for you.
Custom packages for multiple services are offered at a reduced investment. Other offerings can be a la carte. You are under no obligation to select all the services. Decide what you need for your objectives.
Payment is made in advance of any initiated work, which is standard in this industry.
This is serious work that requires your input, reflection, and engagement. My goal is to create personal marketing documents that represent you well and help you feel confident when you arrive for an interview.
