Once you understand that resume writing is not about writing literature and that interviews and career coaching aren't just about being passionate to help others, you start to whittle down which career services firms you want to work with.
Writing a great resume is about having the knowledge on how and why companies hire, and it's understanding that a resume is really just personal marketing and that not everyone has a perfect career and we can help with issues such as lack of experience or ageism.
It's the same with interview coaching and career planning. Most colleges offer a career center free of charge, but you get advice from people that have never sat on the other side of a boardroom table on the 50th floor as a live interview goes down. And how do you take advice on career planning from people who don't understand what is happening in the job markets in real time or don't have the research to back to their data?
To deliver custom services tailored for you, it takes a teama spanning many different skill sets including writing, recruiting, research, marketing and a level of modern day business acumen that many cannot match.
