Development process for the LinkedIn profile optimization:
I will completely revise, update and develop all of your information offline including all of the necessary keywords and content to drive the right traffic to your profile and I will send over the first draft of your new LinkedIn profile information for your review and feedback. Based on your feedback, I will apply all the necessary updates to ensure that everything is perfect. From there, I will require temporary login information where I will complete all of the necessary onpage optimization while making your profile completely private so no one receives any updates or anything like that. I will contact you as soon as everything is complete for your final review and then make your profile public, endorse all of your skills, and connect you with the top groups to support you with the networking process on LinkedIn.

Why do I need a resume?

The resume is an important piece of your professional messaging similar to wearing a suit or jogging pants during a professional interview. The resume is the key that unlocks the proverbial door to opportunity. The resume is your representative, your 1st impression, and forms an impression about you for your target audience before the interview. A decision to interview you for the position is based on the impression that the resume makes which is why your resume is a valuable asset for your career growth and overall quality of life. What type of impression are you making and how many opportunities are you missing?

The resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile are your representatives and your first impression on the target audience. They need to clearly, concisely, and professionally convey your value-added contributions in alignment with the requirements of the target positions by highlighting your previous achievements and abilities correctly and in an action-focused, engaging, and compelling way. Their quality and ability to positively influence is your specific brand/packaging/marketing since you are or will be a product seeking the highest paying buyer, and they are and will always be predictive of your market value or your compensation ceiling. The investment generates significant ROI when done correctly and there are very few providers generating high-quality, customized deliverables.
