How to boost job search success

How do you boost job search success? What’s the secret formula? Why do some job seekers succeed and others fail?

If you never hired a resume writer in the past, you may not know how resume writers differ.

How do I boost your job search success?

My process. I write live.

What does that mean? If you hire me to write your resume, you commit to an interactive process where we meet online using screen sharing tools found in Zoom technologies.

My process was built by working with people directly and writing while they provide information and explain their story. Today resumes are more complex and need more specifics and focus.

I thrive on client interaction throughout the process. It keeps both of us accountable and delivers a very customized product that resonates with your value and unique selling point.

I create your resume in an interview-like sessions beginning with my unique Project Roadmap, a spreadsheet completed using a show-and-tell process of looking at client resumes.

This builds an understanding of the strategies behind resume writing. We capture the plan in the project roadmap and start designing the resume, adding content after the design is nailed. No two documents are alike.

Individuals who work with me have one thing in common. They are dedicated to working together on their project. They recognize everything worth doing requires commitment and investment of time, money, and resources. This includes job search. Typical clients invest 8 to 20 hours into their projects depending on the package and services selected.

What are the job search success results?

Job search success or “Yay” Stories are what drive me to continue to write resumes and help job seekers. I am thrilled when a client calls or emails their Yay Story.

They did it! They are hired! Their search was successful!
