Professional Branding Service Complete
With the professional package, build an advanced resume and application portfolio for your industry. With this package, you get the professional resume, the 60 minute branding session, a cover letter, and a thank you letter. You can also expand this package option to include a professional bio and LinkedIn profile.
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.
Executive 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.
One resume doesn't cut it, no matter how good it is. When you start casting your net on the job market, chances are you are looking at multiple types of positions. In order to tailor yourself for those positions, you need resumes that speak to different professional contexts.
Our experts can help you take your resume and tweak it so that it speaks to multiple jobs. If you want a position in marketing and copywriting, we can help you produce resumes that speak to writing, to marketing skills, and both, using the same core skills and accomplishments.
With a set of variations on your resume, you can more confidently and accurately apply to a wider range of jobs within your field. A tailored resume could be the difference between landing the interview and waiting for a call that never comes.
This seems pretty simple… but just like anything else, you should have references that speak to your skills for a given job. That means a formatted variation of lists that match jobs applied to, that give you the best chance to land the interview.
Our experts will help you format and proofread your reference list. We'll also help you develop it based on the people you have worked with. We'll coach you on which managers, coworkers, supervisors, and colleagues to include for what kinds of jobs. We'll also help you craft the materials you need to keep your references and your potential employers.
