The Five Strengths executive resume strategy is a proven one—we have worked with hundreds of executives and executives in career transition. Whether you are responding to a prime job posting or impressing an executive board, we know how to identify your strengths and create a unique, targeted package of documents that promotes you better than you can do alone.
This is the foundation of our one-on-one connection and your career success. Our in-depth executive resume writing process elicits the best information about your personality, successes, capabilities, dreams, and career aspirations. We take the responsibility of learning about you very seriously, and we are confident that we can do this only through a careful one-on-one analysis of your strengths and abilities. Over the course of multiple conversations, each one to two hours, prepare to learn about yourself, develop a personal relationship with your resume writer, and have a good time doing it. Uniformly, our clients report that the Career Consultation process is enlightening and fun, so expect to work hard and uncover aspects of your career history that promote your experience and accomplishments over that of the competition.
Initially, we’ll introduce ourselves and determine the best resume strategy your needs:
The Platinum Strategy
This is our most comprehensive service and includes the Gold program detailed below, plus development of all aspects of your job search: Interview Strategy, LinkedIn Strategy, Career Letter Portfolio, Recruiter Distribution and E-Note), and custom Executive Biography. Exclusive engagement by request and evaluation of fit only.
You’ll work through a series of expertly crafted online modules (see below). Then, we’ll engage in the Career Inventory conversation, which will take about 2 hours. I’ll ask you dozens of questions about your experience, background, and what makes you ideal for the roles you’ve targeted. During this call, I’ll take pages and pages of notes, which will form the basis for your resume and, ultimately, your cover letter suite and LinkedIn profile.
From the time of that Career Inventory conversation, it will take me 5-10 business days to turn around the first draft of your executive resume and LinkedIn profile. I’ll call you to let you know they’re in your inbox, and I’ll send you some brief instructions about how to think about the revision process. We’ll go through as many revisions as you could request to ensure that you are 100% satisfied that your resume represents you in every possible way.
The Gold Strategy
The Gold strategy elevates the Silver career strategy to comprehensive status, including not only your executive resume and LinkedIn profile but also a custom cover letter and executive biography, so that you’re promoting yourself positively in every way.
The Silver and Bronze Strategy
You’ll complete 14 online modules that break down your career history, contributions, accomplishments, and branding into questions that are easy to follow and easy to answer. In fact, by my asking for specific elements of your career history, I’ll get an exceptionally detailed, flavorful picture of your executive career history. And if you want to describe something specific, we can do that when we have our formal phone conversation. At that time, I’ll also make sure all your questions are answered (you can always call any time, of course–that goes without saying–but this is our formal check-in). And once you complete all of these modules, I’ll write your resume (and LinkedIn, if you’ve chosen the Silver strategy) for delivery within 5-10 business days, and we’ll go through as many revisions as you might require.
