Resumes are for when you are being the aggressor in the process, submitting to companies, your network and others in an effort to pursue an opportunity. LinkedIn is for when you want to be hunted by firms looking for talent.
Be honest. If you’ve written your own resume, you probably spent time agonizing over the details and are not completely comfortable with the results of your work. With LinkedIn, most people make mistakes with both their profile and their marketing efforts using the platform that interfere with their getting the contacts and interviews they want.
I don’t write resumes. I critique them and provide you with an audio file of changes to make in order to help you get more and higher quality interviews.
I have critiqued more than 750,000 resumes during my career in search and know what works and what doesn’t. As for LinkedIn, I am member 7653 (Yes, you read that right) of the hundreds of millions of people who use it.
I’ll critique your resume (refer you to services to re-write it if needed) and critique your LinkedIn profile to make it more magnetic to firms looking for people like you.
Most importantly, I am not trying to “place you” or “refer you” to a particular job so I earn a fee from a client.
I work for you to help you get results.
Too often people rely upon well-meaning amateurs for advice about their resume, LinkedIn profile and their search, in general. Even if they have hired people for organizations, they know what they look for and not necessarily how others evaluate and assess people. Sometimes, what you need are fresh ears listening and fresh eyes looking at your circumstances and offering expert experience.
Let me critique your resume and LinkedIn profile and help you get better results.
I critique English-language resumes and LinkedIn profiles of people at all levels
Jeff is a knowledgeable and sincere career coach. Not only was he always available, he has a true understanding of the dynamics of recruitment, job hunting, offer negotiation and my industry as a whole. Please reach out to him if you need guidance in the areas I mentioned above. You will not be disappointed.
I was in the middle of a job transition where one position was ending due to end of contract with customer, but I had two possibilities: one with a contingent offer that would start the following Monday, and one full offer with an original start date 2 weeks later. Jeff gave me sound advice, reassuring me which choice is the right one. In fact, the organization from whom I have accepted the offer agreed to bump my start date 2 weeks earlier from the original date, thus giving me a continuous employment flow, just changing organizations over the weekend. I hope to seek advice from him via his YouTube videos as well as his LinkedIn when it comes to my career. Thank you so much for your sound advice Jeff.
I am in middle of career transition and I recently reached out to Jeff before an important interview. In one hour Jeff was able to help me become well-prepared and he covered lots of important information that really helped me in a lot of ways. He gauges and understands the problem really well and then accordingly provide you with the correct guidance. He is really good with career coaching and I would totally recommend him going forward.
