Why Tandem Powered is Right for You

Kent Nolen

Ready to move forward in 2019? Change starts here!

There are a lot of factors to consider when selecting a professional resume writer and career development professional. Below, you’ll learn a bit about my philosophy & approach, and you’ll gain insight into what differentiates Tandem Powered. I hope I have the chance to partner with you. Don't hesitate to click the button below to get in touch and learn more.

Why change, and why with Tandem Powered….

1. Because you are your best investment.

Career development services are not a gadget that will be obsolete in a year or two. Rather, career development is a solid investment – perhaps the best investment you can make – because it’s an investment in yourself and in your future. You’ll walk away from our time together with a new understanding of your professional strengths, a clear grasp of the value you represent, and tools that will serve you for a lifetime.

2. Because you need help organizing your life / work story.

If you’re like many people, you’ve let your career development languish. Many of my clients come to me with no idea of how to begin to organize their job history and the way they present themselves. My process gets things in order and leaves you in good shape to continue the momentum. 

3. Because you care about your professional and personal growth. 

So does Tandem. I am the first to say that powerful job search documents are a small part of a successful career management plan. That is why I place so much emphasis on the entire process; I want you to walk away with a success orientation and the kind of bolstered confidence that can change your career trajectory. This is about a lot more than a new resume, and that’s why I love what I do. New for 2019: Full Service clients will walk away from their projects with my guide, Beyond an Outstanding Resume. The guide outlines 12 tactics for comprehensively managing your career.

4. Because you understand the value of a deep process. 

I want you to be able to bring all of you, and so I bring all of me. I draw on my entire skills portfolio – education, professional certifications, extensive experience, and a background working with hundreds of professionals across almost every conceivable field – to provide the deepest and most enriching process possible. Get ready; we’ll get right down to the very details that will make you shine.

5. Because you want to see yourself in a new light. 

I am passionate about empowering you to see yourself and your career in the best light possible by directing your focus to your unique accomplishments and the value you represent. Just imagine the possibilities when you have a new success “language” that makes it easy for you to clearly speak to your past and, more importantly, your potential impact.

6. Because you value the best tools and tips.

As someone with deep experience in Business, Human Resources, and Career Development, I pride myself on staying current in my field and employing cutting-edge and best-in-class tactics on every project. I'm an expert on both sides of the table, and I enthusiastically bring that mastery.

7. Because you are welcome here. Always.

Tandem Powered is committed to the #OpenToAll campaign. No matter your race, color, national or ethnic origin, age, veteran status, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, or any other characteristic, you are wholeheartedly welcome here. I know – from my experience in work and life – that our differences as humans do in fact make our work places and communities stronger.
