Resume Coaching

Resume Coaching

Potomac, MD
Presenting yourself with a professional profile is an important component of your career success. Your resume and LinkedIn profile need to display professionalism while also being contemporary, attractive, concise, and impactful, emphasizing results and achievements rather than just the functions you’ve filled. Even without a long career history with impressive statistics, the right wording can highlight your achievements and create the impression that you’ve made things happen. As an expert in marketing, I know just how to do that. With LinkedIn, it’s important to not think of it as a social platform. Many people avoid LinkedIn by saying that they’re not “into social media”, but that’s a big mistake. LinkedIn is an invaluable business tool that allows you to network with a wide span of people who can inform you of the advantages and disadvantages of certain career paths, while also helping you to identify exclusive job opportunities.

Are you working towards a promotion but keep hitting roadblocks? Are you confused about what your next professional development move needs to be? Do you lack any additional skills or want to go back to school? If any of this describes you, career counseling can help you make the right decisions. I have helped hundreds of people improve their job satisfaction, receive a raise and/or promotion, and develop the confidence and focus to advance in their careers.
