Resume Coaching

Resume Coaching

Arlington, VA
How you present yourself is an important component of career success. You need a resume and a LinkedIn profile that’s modern, attractive, concise, and most importantly impactful, emphasizing results and achievements, not just the tasks you have undertaken. Even if you don’t have a long history of creating impact, the right wording and presentation can greatly amplify the impression that you’ve made things happen. As an experienced marketing professional, I know exactly how to do that. As for LinkedIn, some people avoid the platform with the excuse of “I’m not into social media.” That’s a mistake. As I see it, LinkedIn isn’t really a social medium but rather an invaluable business tool that facilitates networking with a wide variety of people who can offer advice as to the advantages and disadvantages of career paths and organizations. LinkedIn also makes it possible to identify job opportunities well before they’re posted publicly.

It’s easy to get comfortable with the status quo, sometimes too comfortable. If this describes where you are, career counseling can help. I have helped many professionals like you to improve their job satisfaction, get a raise, and gain the necessary confidence and clarity to advance in their careers. Please give me a call.
