perfect sense

“This makes perfect sense, but it’s not necessarily intuitive. It really requires me to step back and really think about how do I make myself attractive to other employers. There’s legwork, but it’s not as daunting as I thought. Before this call, I was going in five different directions trying to figure out what the next step was.”

positive feedback from recruiters

​"You hit the nail on the head. And the first sentence of my bio really grabs attention. It accomplishes what I want it to. I think the résumé will work really well. The feedback that I’ve gotten from recruiters on the résumé has been really good. Really positive. I’ve told them all how great has been working with you. I’m sending a lot of people your way."

then I met you

“I thought I had pretty decent knowledge about LinkedIn, and then I met you and realized that there’s so much more I could be doing. It’s very nice the way you laid everything out to build my profile. I love your ideas. All I had to do was copy the information. And I didn’t even know that I had an old LinkedIn account until you found it. I’ve already had contacts tell me I have a really good profile."

Let’s do this!

"I’ve been ignoring it because I have a very difficult time looking at myself and packaging myself in the best way possible. New York was a blood bath during the recession. There’s still a lot of emotion tied into it. To be honest, I have a lot of shame around it, even though it was 10 years ago. I need to be more comfortable in how I define—and market—myself. After talking to you, I’m feeling very motivated. Let’s do this!”

I’m finally connecting the dots.

“I didn’t really have a clear thought process for my job search before. I’m finally connecting the dots. This all makes total sense. And it feels like something I can do. I have to dig deeper and think more. I’m realizing how much I haven’t thought through. I have a lot of questions to ask myself!”

I agree with everything you just said

“I agree with everything you just said. I used to do hiring for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and I reviewed thousands of résumés. And I can’t believe that I’ve made the very same mistakes on my own résumé.”
