It’s all about creating the best “Story of You!” in your resume and LinkedIn profile!
Storytelling is the new buzz in management strategy and that’s exactly what we’ll do in your resume and LinkedIn profile!
I specialize in creating strategic, targeted and effective Resumes and LinkedIn profiles for people in the technology and engineering verticals that tell the Story of You without all the ‘resume speak”.
I work with people across a company’s functions- from executive leadership to tech support – including HR, Finance and Operations, software/hardware technologists, IT systems and infrastructure, PMs, engineers, Sales and Marketing, and Consultants.
Why and how: creating a great picture!
You’re busy running programs and projects, writing software, designing architecture and systems, managing IT, selling your products or running your company. You have meetings to attend, people to manage and mountains of work to do. Pouring hours of your valuable time into writing a meticulously well-crafted resume may not be time you have to spare.
A strong resume is one of the keys to your career growth. A well-presented LinkedIn profile is another and is equally as important. You may need an Exec Bio or a Consultant Profile as well. Technical, IT Management, Sales and Marketing resumes are highly specialized and you need somebody who knows what they’re talking about. In this market, you need to refine “The Story of You!” – your brand – and a strong resume and LinkedIn profile that highlight your accomplishments will get you noticed! It should have a human voice too, and not sound like a robot wrote it.
That’s what I do – write technical, sales, marketing and management resumes and LinkedIn profiles that get noticed!
I’ve been working in IT for 20+ years and written and rewritten technology based resumes for my candidates throughout my career as a technical recruiter. I talk to HR professionals and hiring managers all the time about what they like and don’t like to see on a resume. I see fair, good and great resumes every day. I look at hundreds of LinkedIn profiles too!
HR and hiring managers are looking for more than a list of skills and expertise. They’re looking for more of your story, your personality, the “How and Why” you do what you do in a resume or a LinkedIn profile!
When I work with you on your resume – whether it’s a light tweak or a major “I haven’t written a resume in 10 years, we’re starting from scratch” overhaul project — you and I will start with a review of what you have and what we think you need, based on where you want to go in your career. I have experience working with senior management, consultants and staff employees, and understand what those resumes should look like.
We’ll create a great picture of your business and technical capabilities to show your potential employer what you have done, what you can do and the value you bring. It’s all about the story of you!
Thank you for visiting my site. I hope I can be of service to you. ~Jan
Special Congrats …
One of the most rewarding aspects of what I do is receiving success emails from past clients. Here are some of my favorites.
June 2017: Hi Jan, I start on Monday. You really helped jump start my search and focus myself on what I want. Thank you. Technical Product Manager reporting to CIO. OMG! I’ll let you know how it goes. Keep in touch. ~Brian
April 2017: Hi Jan! I am absolutely thrilled to have accepted the position with the city of Fort Collins, CO. The benefits are out of this world and, all things considered, should be the last job I ever have! The role is HR Partner and because of the killer resume I submitted, it caught the eye of the new Director who emailed me and asked me to apply to other openings she’d determined needed to be added. I am so excited! THANK YOU for everything! ~ Staci
February 2017: I just have to tell you – I got a call from a large hospital group and the main reason the VP called was due to the first section of my resume. He said “A little crazy? Who says that on a resume? I thought it was great!” We had a great conversation. So happy to have you in my corner!” ~ SC
December 2016: I got the CIO job! ~ Jason
November 2016: You were instrumental in my preparation to change careers especially after 16 years in the same company. I got 3 job offers which felt very rewarding and during interviews heard a couple of time that the interviewer liked the resume 🙂 ~ Tanya
November 2016: I had to write and tell you the news. I got a new job!! I wanted to thank you again for all of your assistance and encouragement and your words of wisdom certainly helped during the interviewing process. Fortunately, I only had to interview for two jobs before I was extended an offer. This is a huge change for me after almost 15 yrs at my old company and I am thrilled. ~ Sarah
August 2016: Jan! 3 days after we finished up the resume, I got 3 interviews and got a full time offer from the company I most wanted to work with. WOW! Thank you so much! ~ Gary
