About

I am ready to help you advance your career.

 

I enjoy raising the bar for my clients. Making you a more effective communicator in the business world and sending you off with a great résumé, or training you how to be better prepared to answer difficult questions in an interview process. Working with you directly, hand-in-hand. I enjoy that interaction the most. That is where a real, tangible, notable transfer of skills will take place between us. Everyone has a different level of work experience, and I will tailor my input accordingly.

   It’s simple: I do for your career what I did for my own.

I spent many years selling computer hardware, software, and services and I also worked for a business communication skills training company, an industry leader. They served 350 of the Fortune 500 companies! I began to take the training frequently. It was then I began to understand that learning and training within business communication had scientific methodologies behind it, even though the subject was not biology or chemistry.  I now focus my energies on using those skills for you, the job-seeker. I provide high-powered resumes, interview preparation, custom job-searches, LinkedIn profiles, and Career Counseling.

 

I have prepared résumés for: Executive Directors (internationally-renowned organizations), CFO’s (Chief Financial Officers), CTO’s (Chief Technological Officer), Attorneys of local and international accreditation, Non-Profit managers (multiple Global brands), and board members/Directors. I have celebrity clients, clients working for four professional sports teams (NFL: Los Angeles Chargers, Dallas Cowboys, NBA: Charlotte Bobcats, Los Angeles Raiders) and a recently promoted head coach here in San Diego! (From Defensive Coordinator to Head Coach). I have represented clients working for high-level technology companies in the SF Bay Area like: Amazon, Square-Up, Inc., and Cisco. I have also helped job-seekers land jobs with very influential business people (Shark Tank show creator and original host Kevin Harrington Shark Tank Host/Creator hires my client ). I don’t believe in limitations and that is reflected in the positive momentum my clients experience in the trajectory of their careers,  post-engagement.

 

My bio: I personally had many jobs in my own career. I started working for my father’s construction company at a very young age and then in hot kitchens for mom-and-pop restaurants. I progressed from there to my first sales jobs, and eventually sales management positions. I then ascended to working for a Fortune-500 technology corporations as an Enterprise-level corporate executive. This led to further job opportunities in even more specialized markets. I finished my corporate career as an employee/consultant and business manager in the real-time GPS fleet-tracking business. This entailed managing all sales channels in the companies largest and newest market and explaining several moving technological components/parts-and-pieces/platforms to Senior Executives about real-time data coming from massive service fleets and distributed over a hand-held device. This is what I was doing before I started my own business providing professional services in the career field.

I took something from all those roles, the sales calls, on-site client visits, training, professional development courses, process improvement meetings, webinars, and trade-shows etc. The ability to communicate business information, succinctly, to many different levels of the corporate hierarchy. The skills I used to generate interviews, return-interviews, and job-offers for myself are now available for you to utilize.

 

Cover Letters

 

 

In today’s workplace and job-market the cover letter is almost as crucial as the résumé is. As such, it is assigned a “one-third” value of my overall product. Without an effective and compelling cover letter, some human resource employees and hiring managers will not review a résumé with the attention it deserves. Those that do not have this component are an easy choice to remove from consideration. My cover letters are unique, custom, and drive hiring managers to spend the time looking at your résumé that it deserves.

 

 

Update 1/09/2020: A recruiter colleague just published this on his personal FB:

This is a comment about the Cover Letter process, as seen through the eyes of a recruiter, and how it effects your resume and its audience. I stress to my clients that I value them as 1/3 the overall worth of my product.

Looking for a job? Here is a tip:
I put MAYBE 2-3mins into looking over your resume.
I will read your entire Cover Letter.
Which one do you think is more important?”

My cover letters are impactful,  engaging, and completely customized. You can purchase a customized cover letter (standard), or you can simply buy the template from me (MS WORD format). Contact me for details.
