Mid-Career Branding Service Advance
Perhaps one of the biggest steps in anyone’s career is when one moves from a beginner to an established figure in the field. While not a total expert yet, you stand out in a crowd and present a ton of potential for upward mobility. With our Mid-Career Resume consulting services, we provide a 20-minute consultation over a resume of up to 2 pages. During that time, we help you transform your resume into a document that illustrates your upward mobility in your industry, including the steps you need to make in order to land that next-level position.Mid-Career Resume
Experts in any field need a resume that illustrates their years of experience. These resumes are about more that job histories, technical and soft skills, and experience. They are about telling the story of your development as a long-term professional in your profession. Career Operative offers services to develop your professional resume (up to 3 pages) with a 4-day turnaround, and includes a 30-minute phone consultation to discuss aspects of your resume and how to use it effectively.
Cover letters aren’t just accessory documents: they are often the first impression you make as a person, even more so than the resume. Our cover letter services will help you develop a consistent voice for your cover letters that match your profession and specific job descriptions, while maintaining your own voice and personality. We’ll show you how to construct a letter, what kind of information to include, and how to entice a reviewing manager or recruiter within the first paragraph. We’ll also cover questions about email applications and tailoring cover letters to pass through screening algorithms
Thank You Letter
The application process doesn’t stop after the interview. For our thank you letter service, we’ll give you basic guidance on how to include a proper thank you letter for an interview or network opportunity. Professionals like to know that their efforts are appreciated, so we’ll consult with you on how to write the perfect thank you letter that leaves a professional and appreciative impression of you for the intended receiver.
LinkedIn Profile Creation or Updating
Now that you’ve got a killer resume in hand, let’s talk about your LinkedIn profile. Think about this as your “digital resume,” plugged in to a professional social network. We’ll walk you through the ways to make your LinkedIn profile professional (including suggestions for headshots, descriptions, and summaries), how to make changes to your professional experience to attract potential employers, and how to cultivate a network through endorsements and regular updates.
Many of us have a hard time selling ourselves. This can hurt you, especially when it comes to providing key documents about your professional experience. Career Operative has specialists on hand to help you develop an executive biography that does just that.
Biographies are typically one-page documents highlighting your skills, accomplishments, and experience. More than that, the bio will represent your brand: what you are, professionally, as a package deal.
With that in mind, you want a bio that sells you as much as your accomplishments. Our coaches are experts in crafting a biography that communicates a brand identity. This includes fleshing out personal and professional goals, values, and ideals, and putting them on the page alongside your past experiences and where you see yourself heading in the future. And our coaches will help you do this with consistency, telling your story in the way you want it told.
