Resume Coaching

Resume Coaching

Alexandria, VA
The way you present yourself is important to the success of your career. The key to presenting yourself well is having a resume and a LinkedIn profile that are not only modern, attractive, concise, and impactful, but that also emphasize your results and achievements. Even without a long history of creating impact, the correct wording and presentation techniques can improve the impression that you’ve made things happen. As an experienced professional, I know how to help you create an impactful profile. With LinkedIn, it’s important not to avoid the platform with the excuse of “I’m not into social media”. That’s a mistake. As I see it, LinkedIn is not a social medium but rather a valuable business tool that can be used to connect with a wide variety of people. These individuals can help offer you advice as to the advantages and disadvantages of certain career paths and organizations, while also identifying job opportunities before they are posted to the public.

It’s easy for many people to get comfortable in their job and stop looking for opportunities to advance. If this describes where you are, career counseling is what you need. I have helped many individuals, like you, improve their career satisfaction, receive a raise, and grow more confident in themselves to advance further in their careers. To learn more about how career counseling can help you to get ahead faster, call me today.
