Transitions. In one sense, a career is nothing more than a series of transitions. If you land a new job following high school or college, that is the start of a transition. If you win a promotion, that new position involves a transition. If you change careers, that new direction requires making a transition.
According to numerous studies, workers on average change careers 5-7 times over their lives. Are you at a point where you are ready to make a career change or transition? But unsure of how to position yourself, especially for a position outside of your industry? I specialize in helping career professionals of all kinds – including professionals, managers and executives as well as members of the skilled trades – make transitions both within and outside of their current industries or employment sectors. My services include resumes, cover letters, additional resume and cover letter versions, resume addendums, LinkedIn profiles, portfolios, bios, personal statements and interview coaching. When it comes to career transitions, here are just a few areas where I can help:
Career Beginnings | Career Advancement | Career Changes | Career Challenges | New Directions at Retirement
Career beginnings. Starting a new career can be one of life’s most exciting ventures. I assist individuals who are getting started in their careers (including those fresh out of college or younger) with creating resumes, cover letters and LinkedIn profiles, as well as with other documents and services as needed.
Career advancement. Taking continued steps in one’s career, however large or small, is essential to both professional and personal growth. I help clients prepare compelling, well-crafted documents that clearly indicate career growth, demonstrate value and align with employer requirements. I am also experienced at helping clients show their ability to think creatively in solving problems or in finding innovative solutions to new challenges and opportunities – traits that employers continue to seek in building their workforces according to recent surveys.
Career changes. According to the latest research, people on average change careers as many as 5-7 times over their lives. Is there a career change or transition on your horizon? I have extensive experience helping clients pursue new career directions by reworking their resumes and LinkedIn profiles using fresh approaches so their value can be quickly understood and appreciated by employers in different industries.
Career challenges. As the saying goes, sometimes “bad things happen to good people.” Layoffs, terminations, healthcare challenges are just a few. When we encounter misfortune, the issue quickly moves from the fact that it happened to how are we going to respond. I am experienced at assisting clients in difficult career situations with new tools – such as a reworked resume or different resume versions for multiple career directions – to enable them to move forward.
New directions at retirement. While on the one hand retiring is a tremendous milestone, on the other hand it is a doorway to yet another phase of life. Is there a new career, volunteer activity or other direction that you are eager to go in but are unsure about how to present yourself? I can help you sort out and organize your skills and experiences in a relevant and impactful way to increase your ability to connect with employers.
Please note: Currently services are mainly focused on career assistance. Small business marketing and publishing support services are also available based on fit and workload capacity.
“In my job search since sending out the resume you created for me, I have had 3 job interviews and yesterday I received a solid job offer that I will be accepting. I wanted to let you know that I am beyond pleased with the resume you prepared, as I feel it showcases my career history and skills well. I also greatly appreciate the change made to a two-page format as this is something I was timid about and unsure of how to display. People who I have shown my resume to think it looks great. This is a tough job market going on right now and what I paid for your service was well worth the value I received.”
