Don’t Just Get Hired… Secure the Career You Desire with Resume Writing, Cover Letter, and LinkedIn Profile Reviews
If you’ve been sending out one resume after another without getting any response other than “we’ll keep you in mind” or “we’ll keep your information on file,” or you find yourself staring at the page when it comes to even pulling together a resume or writing a cover letter, or you have no idea what to put on your LinkedIn profile that will make you “leap out” as someone prospective employers want to put on their “definitely interview” list, then it’s time to ask for some help.
Whether you’re looking for a new job for the first time, switching careers in the same industry, or starting to look for work in an entirely new profession, you need to brand yourself for the work you want most!
Looking for a new position is all about marketing YOU, and your resume, your cover letters, your CV, and your LinkedIn profile are all marketing materials. All of them need to work together to consistently present your unique talents, skills, strengths, and achievements in the best light possible… And all of them need to answer the question at the forefront of prospective employers’ and recruiters’ minds: “What can you do for me?”
Stuck or Worried about Inadequacies or Inconsistencies?
If you feel unqualified, or uncertain about the qualifications you need, to apply for certain positions, or if you’re concerned about one or more gaps or some other issues in your work history or a less-than-pleasant ending at a previous position, please don’t worry. These issues are often less important than you may think, and some can even be turned to your advantage.
And if you find you’re stuck because some limiting belief about what you can and can’t achieve is holding you back, or you have some anxiety or fear about what comes next (the interviews, salary negotiations, and the possibilities of being rejected for one reason or another), unlike many career coaches I can help you cope with, work through, and resolve those issues, too!
In fact, one of the reasons I started Career Therapy is to bring my years of experience in my counseling and psychotherapy practice – in which I help people overcome social anxiety, fears, and the limiting beliefs that hold them back – to all of those who are looking to find or create a career they love and is truly rewarding.
I can and will help you identify your strengths, qualifications, and achievements and my resume writing specialist and I will work with you to make sure your resumes and cover letters are custom tailored and targeted to communicate your relevant strengths and accomplishments to each prospective employer, as well as make sure your LinkedIn profile communicates who you are and helps you introduce yourself in a more visible, approachable, and creative manner.
And, if you’re stuck and you don’t know why, we can work together to uncover the cause of whatever it is that’s keeping you from moving forward, as well as resolve it so you can get moving again!
Ready to Get Started?
I’ve been helping people find and create the jobs and careers they desire for the better part of the past three decades, both in my work supervising career counselors at John F. Kennedy University’s Career Center and San Francisco State University’s Career Counseling and Development Center, as well as in my career counseling and career coaching practice in the San Francisco Bay.
And, while I know how overwhelming the job search process can be, I also know a little help can go a LONG way…
Yes, you can try to save a few bucks and do it all yourself. But when we feel overwhelmed, we tend to freeze up, we may procrastinate, or we may get discouraged.
Unfortunately, procrastinating and not taking action doesn’t help us overcome the feeling of being overwhelmed. And becoming discouraged certainly doesn’t help when it comes to portraying our brand and ourselves in the best light possible.
Again, I can help you overcome any emotional or psychological obstacles you run across, and my resume writing specialist and I can make sure your resumes, cover letters, and LinkedIn profile all work in conjunction with one another and go the extra mile towards getting you hired. I’ve helped countless others do just that, and I know I can help you, too!
Are you ready to feel confident and empowered about the resumes and cover letters you’re putting in front of prospective employers? Are you ready to even have some fun working on them and creating a truly stellar LinkedIn profile?!?
Remember, you don’t have to navigate career questions and transitions alone…
