Outplacement and Resume Writing for Technology Executives and Professionals

You’re thinking about looking for work. Your resume hasn’t been changed in five years, and your last three jobs were acquired through your friends. Your resume is competent, but is that enough?
Most resumes make the mistake of documenting work experience. But a resume isn’t work history – its marketing collateral. It should have the power and clarity of an elevator speech you would share with a CEO you met at conference.
Creative formatting adds little, and may even hurt you, since resume readers are used too a standard simple format.
I can help:
I will make your executive resume as clear as an elevator speech
I will use my 20+ years experience as an executive recruiter, writer, organization consultant and strategic consultant to turn your resume from documentation of your job history to marketing collateral; one that is as powerful and colloquial as an elevator speech.
The first step is an in depth 1 hour session discussing your background in detail and together coming to a decision as to your core message to the market, and a secondary one if needed.
We will use that information to write a great resume that is clear, elegant and powerful. We will do the same with your LinkedIn profile.
I'm assuming you already have a competent resume, and a professionally formatted one. There are many consultants who can help you with that. I can help you take it to another level. My suggestions seem like commonsense, but often have a profound impact on the job seeker who gains a clarity as to how  his individual roles create a clear, powerful theme.
