I am a resume coach, seasoned sales representative, and trained copywriter versed in all things pertaining to the interview -- getting it, preparing for it, and crushing it. Crafting resumes that sell so well, YOU rise to the top of the hiring list and are left making the decision of whether or not this opportunity is worth your time
-- not the other way around.
company. wide. layoff.
Reorganization and layoffs can happen so suddenly that there is no time to prepare. You may have two hours to gather your things and sort through a career's-worth of email and industry contacts -- everything your next hiring manager is going to want to see -- or you may not. It becomes a jarring, stressful, scramble.
On the other hand, the perfect position at your ideal company may arise and the hiring manager is ready to meet you at a moment's notice, but your dust-covered resume hasn't been updated for five years.
We've all been there -- ready to make a move with nothing but our resume standing in the way.
After my experience with layoffs, I vowed that I would be more intentional and consistent in my resume development. And you know what, it worked! I landed every job since implementing that strategy, without the delay or stress. The next time I was in front of a golden opportunity or faced with a company-wide-restructuring I was prepared -- and I have been honored with helping many develop winning resumes.
"You don't have to be great to start but you have to start to be great." -Zig Ziglar
All of this can be achieved with a small, intentional shift toward consistency. It is our consistency that sets us apart. It becomes the way we do business. I've developed a system that can take a business package from drab to fab quickly and efficiently, no matter where you are in your sales career -- in less time and with less stress.
In fact, it is THE PERFECT TIME to update your resume if you are...
1. Unemployed for whatever reason and looking to jump back into the sales arena.
2. Currently employed but have your eye on an ideal position with another company.
3. Employed but open for opportunities, senior status, a management role, or another level of promotion.
Years in both the medical sales industry and our family's recruiting business taught me that consistency, relationships, and timing are everything. How often do we focus solely on our agenda and fail to nurture our professional network or log our accomplishments along the way, never mind keep our business branding alive? Once our job vanishes, so do some of our greatest resources. I'm a tried and true example of how maintaining momentum with your resume will help you succeed despite the unpredictable nature of the industry.
So, are you ready to harness some real momentum with your business materials? Are you hungry for an opportunity and willing to invest in yourself in order to attain it?
I know you are. That's why you're here.
And more importantly, I'm confident that every ounce of your effort will pay off in more ways than you can imagine right now.
I teach what I have personally done as I have been in the trenches, too.
I know the long hours you put into your craft to hone your distinct selling style, the frustration of getting passed over for an opportunity without a clear reason why, and the doubt that creeps in when you're up late trying to craft a convincing cover letter.
I also know the the joy of surpassing that ever-increasing quota with two weeks left in the quarter, the careful concern over client relationships even when you're off the clock, and the giddiness you feel when that recruiter calls you in for a second interview.
Does this sound like you? If you ask me, you're doing it right.
You are willing to put in the work and I would be honored to guide your process. If you resonate with any of this, let me tell you something. You ARE worthy and deserving of your next amazing opportunity and your business materials should showcase exactly that.
