grabs the reader

“I love the very first sentence of my LinkedIn profile summary. It just really grabs the reader. There are some really powerful ideas and language in there. I’ve been so anti-LinkedIn, and I appreciate you taking into account my desire for privacy. You clearly put a lot of thought into it. ​I’d had a bunch of questions, but you’ve addressed all of them. And you’ve really clarified my thinking. Your instructions for inputting the profile were straight-forward​ and your LinkedIn book was very helpful. Thank you for dragging me into the 21st century!”

a fire in my belly

“I feel really good about the résumé. And I felt really good after our conversation. I think it’s what I needed to pull the information out and understand what’s going to be of interest to folks. I’ve actually already gotten a few reach outs from recruiters through LinkedIn, so I now have a fire in my belly to keep working together. It’s all making me feel better about my ability to generate business. I’m excited.”

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."

I spoke to a recruiter this week

“I’m grateful you’ve been able to translate what I do and have done into something that makes sense and really shows my legal skills. When you’re in it every day, it’s hard to step back and see the value you bring. I’m much more comfortable with the new résumé. It’s more reflective of my value. I spoke to a recruiter this week and they said the résumé was fabulous and asked where I got it done. Again thank you very much. This whole thing has been so incredibly helpful.”
