Change the uncomfortable way you feel about job search.

Change the uncomfortable way you feel about job search.

Marianne and I worked together seven years ago.

Since then, the company she was working for was bought out and suddenly moving in a direction that didn’t feel right for her anymore. It was time for her to look elsewhere.

She reached out to get guidance about how to begin her confidential job search.
She was feeling overwhelmed, a bit lost and unsure of how to get started.

She tried to update her resume on her own, but two pages turned into five, then six. She realized she needed help organizing her thoughts and ideas.

I suggested she put together the search criteria that constituted the right job for her. We immediately got to work to update her resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile.

A lot had changed in seven years.

First, we aligned her key messaging with the needs of target employers.

Then, we clarified the value she had to offer these employers based on her years of experience, her promotions and her long list of achievements.

Marianne was already starting to feel a lot better about her updated messaging.

She no longer felt overwhelmed or unsure how to proceed. She now has the vehicles (resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile) to proudly showcase her accomplishments and achievements to potential employers.

She felt confident putting her best foot forward with documents that represented the high lights of her career.

Marianne went from unsure, overwhelmed and lacking confidence in her job search to feeling well-organized and poised to respond to opportunities as she uncovered them.

Getting organized might feel like a minor thing, but it can make the world of difference in your job search.

“Maureen has a real knack for getting clients to talk about themselves…the experience was rewarding. The process was a great learning experience. It made me understand my accomplishments throughout my career and helped me learn about coming out of my shell to talk about wins.” – Marianne.
