Resume Coaching

Resume Coaching

Bethesda, MD
I will review all elements of your resume and cover letter to ensure that they are presenting you in an optimal way. That means evaluating not just the way in which you describe your background, but the visual impression of the resume as well. I will show you how to language your work history so as to showcase your impact, and not just your responsibilities. Importantly, I will also demonstrate how to tailor your resume to each job opportunity you are pursuing. Finally, I will review and strengthen your LinkedIn profile, an essential component of your positioning in the job market.
Job Search Coaching

Job Search Coaching

Bethesda, MD
Too many people limit their job searches to periodically checking sites like Indeed and LinkedIn to find advertised openings and apply to them. Unfortunately his is a flawed strategy. Many posted jobs aren’t in fact available, as they have already been earmarked for internal candidates but are posted to fulfill legal or HR requirements. Also, a large proportion of jobs never get posted, and are filled through referrals from employees. I will show you how to access the kinds of people who can open the door to opportunities of which only they are aware, plus guide you on traditional best practices for pursuing jobs.
Professional Networking

Professional Networking

Building strong personal relationships is an essential component of career success. While the economic system in which we operate is in part a meritocracy, it is also a system in which who you know, and the strengths of your relationships, can give you a significant edge. On a very practical level, If you’ve encountered a lack of success in landing a job there’s a good possibility that you aren’t doing enough networking. I will make the sometimes intimidating task of networking a lot easier for you by explaining to you just how and when to reach out and alleviating your anxieties.
