Oh how things change! A few years back, I believed that an outstanding resume and a solid cover letter template served as a solid foundation of job search documents. Now, that's all changed.The employment landscape has not only evolved, it's also gotten a lot tougher to navigate. For instance, a presence on social media platforms is pretty much essential, and merely sending off resumes and letters no longer cuts it. At all.
Given that, I've officially changed my take on what's essential for a robust job search or career development strategy. Today, I'm introducing the new and improved Tandem's Essentials package:
Of course, it includes that requisite killer resume and personalized cover letter template. However, the package now goes much further and includes...
- A personalized resume follow-up letter template, allowing you to send a targeted letter after each resume submission.
- A sharp, LinkedIn-ready companion to your resume – ready for posting on LinkedIn or other boards of interest.
As a kick-off bonus, the Tandem's Essentials package will temporarily also include my recently completed guide – Beyond an Outstanding Resume. The guide is a way of providing clients with an outline and some specific tools for managing a multifaceted career management approach that goes beyond submitting resumes and crossing fingers. The guide provides 12 steps that, when completed, will lead to more job search success and, ultimately, career fulfillment.
But that's not the only change!
Because, given the changing landscape, it's critical to be strategic in both your job search and career management, you've got to take every step very seriously. Over the last couple of years, in particular, clients have benefited from what I call Strategy Sessions. These sessions – completed over the phone – can be about whatever you feel will help to bolster your career preparedness. The most popular (and effective) Strategy Sessions focus on:
- Your resume / letter strategy.
- Your overall job search / career strategy.
- Your interview strategy.
The new and improved Tandem's Toolkit now includes not only the components of Tandem's Essentials but also a Strategy Sessions (at a discount).
Pricing depends on career level, years of experience, etc.
