Career Services – Return on Investment

Career services yield a return that is far greater than the initial investment. Your time is valuable, so it makes sense to outsource some tasks in your life so that you can have more time to enjoy yourself, especially with items that can benefit from the expertise of a professional.

For those still working while looking for a job, the greatest ROI will be in finding your new position faster and with less effort. For those who are unemployed, the ROI of working with me to accelerate your job search is tremendous. If you’re thinking of going with your usual resume and untested job search methods to “see how it goes,” please think again, and consider the tremendous opportunity cost involved in this method.

First, consider the cost of being unemployed. For every $100K in salary, you lose approximately $8K per month and $24K per three months you’re not earning. If you accelerate your search, you will reap the benefits of being employed faster.

Or consider the benefits of landing a new job at a higher salary in a faster timeframe. For a raise of even just $30K a year, you will reap $7.5K in additional income over three months. Accelerating your job search can give you a tremendous return on your investment.

 

Executive Resume Writing Packages - Description of Services

Distinguished Documents Package

This package is ideal for executives who want a top-shelf resume and LinkedIn profile created via one-on-one white-glove service. I will collaborate with you to uncover and communicate your personal brand, making your value proposition undeniable. Your new resume will help open doors to new job opportunities, while a keyword-rich and compelling LinkedIn profile will help recruiters find you and want to reach out.

Work Directly with Rebecca from Start to Finish

You will be working one-on-one with an industry-leading branding expert who will provide tailored services.  I am not a “resume mill” - you won’t be assigned to an unknown writer with less experience. If you invest in working with the best, then you should get to work with the best! I operate a low-volume, high-quality business.

From my main office in Cleveland, OH, I provide executive resume writing services to senior-level clients throughout the globe. I’m one of only a handful of professional executive resume writers with 12 career certifications.

Executive Resume

On average, reviewers will scan your resume for only 6 to 8 seconds before deciding whether it is worth pursuing. When you apply for a job, you are usually competing with hundreds – or even thousands - of other applicants, and only an estimated 1% to 2% of resumes land an interview. To break through, your executive resume needs to stand out and quickly communicate your value.

What’s included:

  • 50-minute Brand Strategy and Career Direction call. We will discuss in detail what makes you fabulous and why companies would want to hire you. Then, we will strategize best fit industries and target companies (It is assumed you already have clarity on your role, otherwise we can add additional career clarity sessions).
  • 60- to 75-minute Career Overview session. All I need to re-write a great resume is 60 to 90 minutes of your time. I do not ask you to fill out 10-page forms like some other resume writers do. Your time is valuable, so let me do the heavy lifting while you sit back, relax, and enjoy the process.
  • Custom, branded resume with two versions (MS Word and PDF).
  • Your resume will be custom-written and designed by me. I will not assign you to an unknown and potentially inexperienced subcontracted writer. You will collaborate with me from start to finish.
  • Transformation of your executive resume from a list of jobs into a marketing document that sells you and gets you your dream position. I will take your resume from mediocre to great.

LinkedIn

According to a recent Jobvite Survey, 94% of recruiters use LinkedIn to source and vet candidates. Recruiters also use LinkedIn to search for candidates based upon work history and job title. Done correctly, your LinkedIn profile can become an engine that drives interviews and offers, but only if others can find you and are impressed when they do.

After receiving my help, clients report skyrocketing LinkedIn profile views, interviews, and even job offers. A properly optimized LinkedIn profile is a key component of a successful job search.

What’s included:

  • Keyword-optimized LinkedIn profile with white-glove service (new custom headline and about section).
  • Custom, summarized job descriptions (different from resume).
  • Strategy for other sections, such as keywords, skills, education, awards, organizations, and volunteer experience.
  • Optimized LinkedIn profile with SEO terms and keywords so that recruiters and hiring managers find you in their searches.
  • Powerful, branded About section that entices viewers to reach out to you.
  • Transformation of your profile from a mishmash of disjointed information into an online marketing tool.
  • An update of your profile after you land your new job (new title, company name, and turning off “open to work” section).

Job Search Activity Tracking Sheet

I will provide you with an Excel spreadsheet to track your resume submissions, job interviews, networking meetings, and offers. It’s called the Job Search Activity Tracking Sheet, and it helps you get – and stay – organized and keeps you on top of your job search so that you land your dream job faster!

Accelerated Job Search Package

This package is ideal for executives who want to accelerate their job search using modern strategies. If you want to get your job search firing on all cylinders and land a new job faster, this training is essential. You will learn how to use all the tools you need to cut your job search time in half.

All the above, plus:

References Dossier Template with Matching Letterhead

Most employers will want to check references before you start a new job. I will provide a template that matches your resume. From here, you can add names and contact details, and customize references for each job.

Customizable Cover Letter and E-note with Matching Letterhead

Believe it or not, many jobs still require you to submit a cover letter with your application, and without one, the recruiter may toss your resume. I’ll write a general cover letter that you can customize for various jobs and an E-note, a shorter version that can be used within an email.

1, 50-minute Custom Job Search Strategy Session

Today’s job marketplace is the most competitive in decades and can often feel overwhelming. It's also been reported that 75% of positions are never even advertised! These “hidden” jobs are filled even before the thundering herd of job applicants sees them posted online.

My 5-Step Executive Job Search System will help you cut your search time in half so that you reap the benefits of being employed – or landing a job with a higher salary – faster.

What’s included:

  • Step-by-step strategies to land lucrative leadership roles without wasting time on ineffective traditional job search methods.
  • The secret to getting responses when you apply online.
  • How to uncover the best opportunities, even when they’re not posted or made public yet.
  • Why traditional job search strategies like searching online job boards and sending out hundreds of resumes rarely work, and how you can shave months off your search starting today, using my executive job search system.
  • AND, how my clients stand out from other applicants along the way – and even find a way to enjoy the executive job search journey.

Ultimate Job Landing System:

This package is ideal for executives who want a complete job landing system that includes all the components needed to land their dream job as quickly as possible.

Includes all the above, plus:

1, 50-minute LinkedIn and Networking Strategy Session

According to HubSpot, 85% of jobs are filled through networking. In fact, according to CNBC, 70% of jobs are never advertised publicly. They are either only posted internally or created specifically for candidates that recruiters meet through networking. You therefore need a strategy for reaching out to target companies, your network, and hiring managers.

What’s included:

  • A continuation of the job search strategy coaching session, including training on finding hiring managers and referral partners on LinkedIn.
  • Strategies for engaging and growing your network in-person and online.
  • Editing your profile and setting up job search alerts on LinkedIn.
  • Establishing yourself as a thought leader on LinkedIn.

1, 50-minute Interview Coaching Session

Once you start to land job interviews, I will prepare you with best practices and answers to common interview questions. The goal is for you to stand out in the interview and follow-up process so that you are the one selected for the position. As needed, additional interview coaching sessions can be added. 

Guides for Job Search Strategy, Interview Prep, Offer Evaluation, Salary Negotiation, and Research

I provide a complete job search toolkit that helps you review your job search strategy, shows you how to rank competing offers, and trains you on conducting research on opportunities.

A key component of your job search is negotiating your new salary effectively. Getting this part right is essential. With my salary negotiation guide, I equip you to negotiate a top-dollar job offer and formulate optimal counteroffers.

Customizable Target Company E-note & Recruiter Letter

The target company E-note is used to reach out to organizations where you would like to work and provides a brief introduction to entice the reader into reviewing your resume.

The recruiter letter is used to reach out to recruiters individually, or if you opt to add-on a recruiter distribution (distribution is optional and not a part of this package).

Customizable Correspondence Templates

These standard templates can be customized for your letters and thank you notes. They’ll save you significant time during your job search, as you just need to modify them to fit your situation.

Networking Guides & Templates

A networking worksheet, scripts, and correspondence templates are included so that you can leverage your network.

30-60-90 Day Action Plan Template

A 30-60-90-day action plan is a fantastic way to set yourself apart following an interview so that you can land a job offer. I will train you on how to gather information on next steps from the hiring manager in an interview and share a template you can customize to each opportunity’s particular requirements.

3 Months of Email Support

After finishing our process, I will personally answer your questions and concerns through email and be available for three months to provide support.

Optional Additions to Any Package:

Executive Bio

A one-page executive biography serves as a personal marketing document that can be used in a variety of situations. For example, a bio is often necessary when you have been invited to speak at a conference.

Networking Resume

A networking resume is a single page that acts an executive summary of your 2–3-page resume. It makes a great leave-behind when attending a networking event or meeting and helps your valuable new connections remember who you are and what you have to offer. It’s far superior to just leaving a business card, as it quickly outlines your background and value proposition in an easy-to-digest fashion.

Resume Distribution

To support your job search, I will distribute your resume to a proprietary list:

Executive Recruiters: 800–1,200 recruiting firms and over 18,000 recruiters. I’ll send it with a letter that is mail merged to each recipient – as a Word document, not just copied and pasted into an email.

Private Equity – Venture Capital: Distribution to 4,000 firms.

Family Office: $350 for distribution.

Customizable Recruiter or PE/VC Letter

The recruiter or PE/VC E-note is used to reach out to recruiters and is used in the recruiter distribution. This letter provides a quick overview of your value and an introduction to entice the reader into reviewing your resume.

Value Proposition

Career services yield a return far greater than the initial investment.

Your time is valuable.  It makes sense to outsource some tasks in your life so you can have more time to enjoy yourself.  Especially those items that can use the expertise of a professional.

For those still working and looking for a job, the ROI will be in finding your new position faster and with less effort. For those who are unemployed, the ROI of working with us to accelerate your job search is tremendous.

If you’re thinking of going with your average resume and untested job search methods to “see how it goes”, consider the tremendous opportunity cost involved: think again.

Consider the cost of being unemployed.
