This is an entry that I've been meaning to write for some time now because it addresses a point that clients say I don't make clear enough... Quite often, at the end of a project, a client will write to tell me how fulfilling and thorough they thought the process was. Those who have used other resume writers in the past, comment on how much more rewarding their Tandem experience was. This is from an e-mail that I recently received:

...As you know, I had my resume done professionally a couple of years ago. That person was a good writer and I was pleased with the outcome. Working with you was a much better and different experience.  Your process goes FAR deeper than a typical resume overhaul. I was amazed by how much your professional background and insight play into the entire process. Your detailed approach, the questions you ask, and the explanations you provide make the experience about more than just a better resume.  I think you should emphasize this fact more on your website because it differentiates you from the competition in a big way.  Thanks again!  I'll keep you posted.

My process does go well beyond simply writing well, or having extensive experience in HR, or knowing what makes an outstanding resume etc. Rather, it's ALL of those elements – and more – coming together as I strive to maximize individuals potential via my Resume/Career Development work. You can find more details on Tandem’s FAQ page.

I really believe that the integration of all of those elements adds a lot of value to each project. It's that multi-faceted approach that also leads me to relentlessly fine-tune my process day after day. For instance, my questionnaire and strengths survey have proven to be fantastic tools for uncovering the necessary information to ensure that clients walk away with stellar job-search documents. Plus, it's always about far more than the resume, letter etc. If you decide to move forward, the process will likely jump-start your job search and inspire you to look at your background and career endeavors in a new light.

I guess there's not much more that I can add other than it's a clear reflection of what I love doing.
