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."

LinkedIn works!

“LinkedIn works! I got my job through LinkedIn. The recruiter contacted me just two weeks after you updated my profile. And I’ve had lots of recruiters contact me, which *never* happened before. There are always recruiters sniffing around my profile, so it’s working!”

the best résumé writer on the planet

“​I was referred to you by a colleague who worked with you two years ago. He said you are the best résumé writer on the face of the planet. He told me I was stupid if I didn’t call you. I don’t that anyone has ever gotten a more enthusiastic endorsement! The formatting of the new résumé is very clean looking, and I really like how it presents me. It’s brilliant. And so much better than what I was doing. Thank you, really.”

an approach and process to move forward

“I do think this has all been helpful. You’ve given me an approach and process to move forward. All the things we’ve been discussing—that’s why I don’t have a résumé. The process that you’ve outlined on determining my goals and the target pool of employers will be a helpful tool for me in thinking about my career and in formulating an approach for the résumé.”

I’ve been really struggling

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!”
