Here's What's Included
One-on-One, Expert Support
You'll work directly with your career consultant to refine your resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile. They'll talk you through the process and decision making involved in positioning your experience, skills, and expertise in alignment with your goals for the next chapter of your career. You'll work 1-on-1 with your resume writer, and you'll also reap the benefits of having a U.S.-based, boutique team of career experts behind you!
Your designated resume writer will do the heavy lifting for you through our proven process. Your Master Resume will be crafted according to best practices and using a framework that scores well with modern ATS (Applicant Tracking Systems). Think of it as a data repository that captures everything you've achieved in your career from inception to date. This is a living document — a tool that can be easily maintained, customized, and tailored for any number of job opportunities.
Job-Specific Resume & Cover Letter
Next, we’ll performance tune your resume for a job listing of your choosing. Your resume writer will help you make all the judgment calls in terms of what to include, adjust, and omit from your resume based on your target, and will perform all work related to the refinement of your document.
We’ll also scan your resume with our proprietary software to ensure it ranks well against your job listing. Your resume writer will also complete a custom cover letter to match your job-specific resume. You'll have everything you need to apply for a specific job opportunity. Last, we'll provide you with the insights you need to customize additional job-specific resumes all on your own (check out our course content below)!
Full-Service LinkedIn Profile Update
We'll perform a full-service, section-by-section revamp of your LinkedIn profile. We find that recruiters spend 50% of their day performing keyword searches for potential candidates on LinkedIn, so it’s essential that your profile can be identified in the right searches (those related to job opportunities you will love and enjoy). By populating your profile with content-rich, keyword-rich information aligned with your job targets, we'll ensure your profile ranks well and receives the attention you need throughout your job search.
