Resume Coaching

Resume Coaching

Silver Spring, MD
The way that you present who you are is a critical component of career success. You need a resume and a LinkedIn profile that are contemporary, appealing, concise, and impactful, and that emphasize your achievements rather than just your job titles and the activities you engage in. Even if you’re lacking a strong history of achievements, the proper wording can increase the impression that you have achieved good results in your career. As for LinkedIn, some of my clients have told me they don’t use it because they’re “not into social media.” That’s a serious missed opportunity. LinkedIn isn’t so much a social media platform as it is an invaluable business tool that helps individuals to network across a wide variety of industries. You can use LinkedIn to talk with people about the advantages and disadvantages of career paths and organizations, as well as to identify job opportunities before they’re publicly posted.
