Are you feeling that you’re missing something that’s preventing you from getting that interview, getting that raise, getting that freedom? If this sounds like something you’re searching for, then let’s chat logical next steps. HOW I CAN HELP YOU? My mission is to provide a career transition that takes the guesswork out of updating your resume and bring out the positive aspects of change. • How would you like a resume that actually markets you? • Would you like to know all of the insider secrets of a former recruiter of how to have your resume get past the layers of technology whose main job is to screen resumes out? • Have someone there next to you every step of the way acting as your guide through the whole process? MY BACKSTORY: • I’m a former recruiter for Fortune 500 companies including Johnson Controls, Cummins, GM, Ford, PNC, PPG, Goodrich, Chrysler, Moen, ABB, and Timken. • Being a recruiter, I’ve seen all of the templated resumes that come out of the resume mills, making one candidate indistinguishable from another. • I knew innately what recruiters and hiring managers wanted. Unfortunately, the applicants didn’t and that created a disconnect. WHAT HAPPENED? After being laid off myself, I turned to what I was mostly doing when I was a recruiter at my old job with my unofficial duties, which were career consulting, interview training, and resume writing. In working together, we’ll: • Build your resume together. • Craft your customized cover letter. • Develop your LinkedIn presence. • Write your supporting letters – thank you notes, follow-ups, references, and more. • Strategize together on how to attack your job hunt so it’s as short as possible. WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID: • “Your work led to my current position. A recruiter found me on LinkedIn. It was a jump in compensation and career.” • “Received a job offer at a pharma company! Thanks again.” • “I got the job. Thank you so much.” • “Using Matt’s resume/letters, I received 3 job offers within a month after multiple interviews.” • “The hiring manager liked my resume so much, she asked if I could give her Matt’s contact info!” • “I worked with Matt and literally had a job within 2 weeks.” I’ve earned 745+ LinkedIn recommendations.
