Is a DIY Resume Holding You Back?

With the right resume, you will get more interviews, win higher job offers, and shorten your job hunt.
A DIY resume will cause you to lose out on interviews, miss out on higher roles, and lengthen your job hunt unnecessarily. Which scenario do you prefer?
These resume and coaching packages will give you the help you need to land the job you really want.

Who is Your Resume For?

Every resume should be written for three audiences. Is yours? If yours isn’t focused on helping those who will review your resume to grasp what you bring to the table, your job search will suffer and that’s not a result that will help your career thrive in the midst of a major economic downturn.

Even when the economy is in good shape, recruiters receive hundreds of resumes each week. Some companies receive thousands of resumes weekly. Can you imagine how many they’ll each receive as the economy begins to turn around and hiring picks up?

How can you stand out in a deluge like that? There are three keys to doing so – keywords, branding, and achievements. Your resume must highlight your uniqueness and the impacts of your accomplishments on the bottom lines of your employers. It also must weave in the right keywords in the right density and locations in your resume.

The good news is that there is both an art and a science to this resume writing game. The even better news is that your What’s Next resume writer is an expert at both. Certified as a Master Resume Writer with 24 global resume writing awards and nominations under her belt.

The Expert Resume Writing Coaching Packages from WhatsNext.com will propel your resume from blah to brilliant and show you how to land your next great job faster.

How it Works and What You'll Get

1

Your process begins with an Intake Call to clarify your major job search targets and goals.

2

You will complete an online branding questionnaire.

3

You will schedule your Project Kickoff Call so together you can define the approach to your project.

4

You will complete custom resume questions that will be embedded in your original resume.

5

You will schedule your Resume Strategy Session, which is essentially an interview delving into your career brand and achievements.

6

Your new resume will be delivered within 15 business days.

7

Your coach will provide up to 3 rounds of resume feedback via email and Track Changes.

8

Your resume will be proofed, finalized, and delivered in Word/ASCII text formats with your coach’s proprietary Resume Tailoring Guide.

9

Your additional documents will be completed within 2 weeks of resume finalization. Each will include 2 rounds of email edits.

10

After your resume is completed, you may schedule your first coaching session. Subsequent sessions may be scheduled once your homework from the prior session has been completed.

11

We generally recommend a one-week interval between each session. It may be faster or slower based on your personal preference and availability.

12

You may reach out via email for up to 30 days with any additional concerns or questions that arise.

What You'll Gain

Clarity about your uniqueness and how to communicate the difference your employment can make to prospective employers.

An overhaul of your key job search tools – your resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile. Each will be infused with the keywords specific to your target industries.

You will define and quantify your achievements. Not sure you have any? Your resume writer will interview you to help you to identify them.

You will receive one-on-one coaching on any combination of topics you would find helpful:

  • how to change career directions;
  • how to market yourself;
  • which job search marketing techniques you should use and how to do so;
  • how to network in a way that matches your personality;
  • how to fully leverage LinkedIn;
  • how to overcome your career liabilities (too much or too little experience? Too young or too old?);
  • how to wow employers with your interview skills;
  • how to negotiate the compensation package you want;
  • and much, much more.

...and much more

What people are saying about Cheryl

"Cheryl – I can’t thank you enough. Before we connected I had been floundering in the job market for well over a year with a diffuse resume and a confused proposition. In our phone call you called out my brand in a way I had not seen before, which in itself was enormously helpful and allowed me to productively re-focus my effort. And then, using only the draft resume you had put together, I applied for a great-looking role and got the job!"

Petar Lemajic
Tom Key (General Manager)

"Cheryl is a highly experienced resume writer and career coach with a wealth of insight and best practices knowledge to share with her clients. She is an articulate writer with a gift for capturing the client's essence in words while helping them to market themselves into their next career role. In addition, she is an expert on using LinkedIn in the job search process. I am deeply grateful for her guidance and support throughout my own career search.”

Stephanie Warner
Andrew Gordon (Chairman & CEO)

"As a recruiter I have read thousands upon thousands of resumes. Until I read a resume that was written by Cheryl I had never recommended a resume writer to my candidates. Her resumes “pop” and grab the attention of the reader. Importantly, she also has a firm grasp on what it takes to get noticed on LinkedIn."
