EVERYONE ASKS: RESUMES AND LINKEDIN

Resume and LinkedIn Coaching for:

Active job searchers, passive job seeker, anyone wanting to update or upgrade their resume and LinkedIn for the current AND near-future job market.

Career coaches get many, many questions about resumes and LinkedIn. Joanne also believe a good coach cannot deliver the resume without also delivering the LinkedIn profile -- and doing them BOTH well because candidates need them both. Technology is critical in today’s job search, whether we like it or not. Your resume and LinkedIn profile both make you visible to employers who are looking for you!

For years, the resume’s demise has been predicted. But it persists because it’s a snapshot of you, it’s “YOU on paper” -- and employers want to see how you think of yourself in that constricted space.

Joanne applies her writing gifts and career knowledge on your behalf. She was given the nickname The Resume Queen years ago because she constantly evolves resumes into state-of-the-art tools that get her clients those interview emails and phone calls.

And your LinkedIn profile is only as good as your resume because it builds on it.

She also constantly talks with recruiters and hiring managers, taps her LinkedIn technology gurus and goes to webinars designed for employers, so that she keeps up with how they find great talent by using LinkedIn. Working with her will accelerate your job search.
