Today, Tandem's Process Gets Even Better

Kent Nolen

Today, I have a big announcement. But first, some backstory…. One of the hallmarks of Tandem's services – 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. Much to some client's surprise, I am constantly 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."

With all of that texture in place, I am happy to announce a significant new feature that will make Tandem's process even more valuable.

I recently completed a guide: Beyond an Outstanding Resume. The guide is a way of providing clients with an outline and some specific tools for managing a multi-faceted 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.

It gives client suggestions and tools beyond an outstanding resume that will help to fuel professional development. Of course the list isn't all inclusive – there are certainly more than 12 ideas that might be appropriate. However, based on my experience, I believe that the twelve activities in the guide make a powerful combination. Ideally, clients will focus on tackling one new activity each week for a total of twelve weeks. Naturally, though, you can progress at whatever speed you'd like.
