Tandem's Toolkit

Kent Nolen

A few years ago, I introduced a new and improved Tandem's Toolkit.  It's surpassed all of my expectations and has become one of my most popular offerings.

One of the hallmarks of my service – what I believe is a huge differentiator – is a commitment to creating a “best in class” experience. That means, in addition to staying on top of what’s going on in the world of Human Resources and Career Development, I want to ensure that I am always providing the highest quality, most relevant services and tools.

Over the years that has meant regularly refining my approach to HR consulting – striving to offer the tools and advice that can help to make organizations the best employers that they can be. On the Career Development / Resume Writing side, it has meant continually tweaking my process so that it provides the most value for individuals on a quest to find and maintain fulfilling careers. It’s about a lot more than a new resume, and clients love it.

Any top-notch HR professional will tell you that a resume is a critical piece of the job search puzzle, but only one piece. As surprising as it may be to many, I am regularly saying that an outstanding resume is only a prerequisite, a starting point, a foundation. It’s the beginning of what should a be a multi-pronged approach that moves you from “looking for a job” to “managing a career.”

Hello Tandem's Toolkit....

The foundation of the package is my most popular suite of job search documents – Tandem's Essentials.

In addition to a powerful resume and a compelling, individualized cover letter template, Tandem’s Essentials 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.

Tandem's Toolkit  also includes a favorite of Tandem Powered clients: YouFinder. It's raising the bar in terms of clients' preparedness to take their careers to the next level.

YouFinder – an easy to complete, 20-minute assessment – opens the door to an entirely new way of looking at yourself and your career by bringing to light details of your Type.

Now, beyond providing information about their Type, I'm providing YouFinder participants with an enhanced written analysis that includes information on strengths and individualized tips / areas for exploration (information the formerly was provided in extra coaching calls).

If there's anything I've learned in the last decade+ of doing this work, it's that 1) knowing your strengths and natural talents is key for a successful career (and life!) and that 2) most clients are not in touch with their strengths and natural talents.

The contradiction between #1 and #2 keeps many careers from flourishing.

And, if you do decide to add on coaching calls, I've implemented a best-in-class approach for providing clients with useful tools that will help them throughout their careers.

Make this the year to energize your career! Get in touch for further details about Tandem's Toolkit and other service offerings that might meet your needs.
