Research shows job seekers have 6 seconds to (1) speak to employers’ interests and (2) grab their attention. You may not be able to sell yourself in writing and get past the resume scanners, or you may get invited to interviews only to fail to get the offers you want.
This is how our resume and career services help our clients overcome these challenges:

Career Coaching & Executive Coaching Services
COMPREHENSIVE RESUME SERVICES
As one of nation's top resume services, we have found that employers today receive an average of 118 resumes for each job opening. Only the best 2% of resumes get an interview, and these may not include the best people for the job if their documents don’t show it. Even if writing is your strong suit, you may not be able to sell yourself in writing and get past the resume scanning machines. This is a technical writing task. We use Neuro-Linguistic Programming in our letters to appeal to different types of readers and send subconscious commands.
How to make your resume stand out? For a reasonable price, you get the interviewing, writing, and editing efforts of not 1 but 3 to 4 resume experts. This results in flawless, impactful, employer-friendly documents.
We constantly study our clients’ results. These are the findings as of April 16, 2020: Our median resume services client typically gets a new job in 8 weeks from resume finalization. Our average resume services client interviews with 5 different employers, is contacted by 12 recruiters if they get our LinkedIn, and gets 14% increased pay at the new job. That means the average client is getting a $8800 return on investment from working with us – plus increased happiness and improved quality of life.

CAREER COACHING & EXECUTIVE COACHING SERVICES
With executive coaching, landing your dream job with an organization whose mission, purpose, and values resonate with you should just be the beginning and not the end of your career tune-up. The career strategy coach who supported you in the pursuit of your dream job can now help you make the most of your new position as part of a self-designed trajectory of career growth. We want you to enjoy a fulfilling journey that makes the most of your gifts and repays you with both emotional and monetary rewards.
Whether you are a client we have helped secure a new position, or you are a new client interested in super-charging your career, the process includes the following:
• Clarifying and setting goals
• Formulating a development plan
• Helping you implement your plan and achieve your goals
For executive coaching clients who have not utilized our other career services, the process will involve assistance in gaining self-awareness and identifying potential future positions. It may also include interviews with and feedback from other stakeholders, such as managers and coworkers. For existing clients, you will build on what you have discovered about yourself and how you can leverage your potential toward a rewarding career in the private or public sector.
Depending on your situation, the career counseling plan may include strategies to enhance your daily productivity, influence, and effectiveness. It could include building interpersonal skills for deepening your understanding of your colleagues and partners, identifying and hiring the right players, or forming, coaching, and leading high-performing teams. You may also wish to work on positioning yourself as a highly valued strategic contributor, and being richly rewarded—mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and financially.
Similar to our career strategy coaching program, executive coaching and career counseling is an action-oriented program where clients get most of their goals accomplished between their sessions. The meetings will be used to check progress, ask questions, challenge “stories” and assumptions, recommend additional resources and support, and get you back out there. Consider your coach a caring accountability partner who is committed to enabling you to enjoy a fulfilling life and make your dreams come true..
