Your résumé has one job: to get you interviews. In order to do this, it must convince the prospective employer that, above anyone else, you’re the one they need in the target role. Partnering with me ensures that your résumé will communicate very powerful and distinct messages about you and your leadership—that you understand what makes businesses run successfully, and you possess the skills and acumen to contribute value from day one.
With nearly 550 million users, there’s no doubt that LinkedIn is an essential element of the executive job search. With a 2,000-character limit for each section, your LinkedIn profile must be both engaging and concise! Since it’s designed to be searchable by recruiters and prospective employers, your profile also should include rich keywords that increase your page views. Having written LinkedIn profiles since the platform’s inception, I know exactly what’s needed to capture the salient points of your career and create a robust, compelling profile.
Despite wildly differing opinions on whether they’re read or ignored, the cover letter remains an absolutely vital partner to the résumé. Many executives cringe at the thought of writing customized letters for each job target. However, this is a critical part of an effective job search. Enlisting my help will provide you with a comprehensive letter template that contains dynamic, persuasive language highlighting your key value propositions, along with embedded prompts for you to follow in customizing the remaining content.
The quintessential networking document, your career brief will be formatted in the same vein as the résumé, only shorter, providing a hard-hitting, one-page, “at a glance” overview of your career history, credentials, and value.
Your executive bio is a versatile document that can serve many purposes. Within the scope of the job search, it serves as an alternative to the résumé for distribution to network contacts or during the informational interview (situations where presenting your résumé may not be appropriate). This document is written to read in the style of a press release, delivering a lighter, but substantive, account of your career.
Thank You Letter
After your interview, we’ll chat for a few minutes, and then I’ll create your thank you letter, which will be tailored specifically to address the points you discussed with your interviewer. The thank you letter also gives you an opportunity to remind the interviewer of your key strengths, as well as the characteristics that differentiate you from other candidates.
