Executive Resume Writing, LinkedIn, & Job Search Solutions
Are you ready… to earn what you’re worth? Enjoy work more? Move up the ladder?
My name is Kelly Donovan, and these are just a few of the benefits my past clients have experienced. I’m an executive resume writer, LinkedIn specialist, and job search coach here to help job seekers who are sick of going it on their own and want to take the shortest path to the top!
Who I help:
- C-level executives and those aiming for the C-suite
- Mid-career managers and executives
- Individual contributors with a high level of responsibility or expertise
- Entrepreneurs transitioning back into being an employee
- Executives re-entering the workforce after a sabbatical
Have you noticed that landing an ideal position is harder than ever?
The road to a new job has become a frustrating and challenging one; some of the things I hear all the time are:
- “Job search wasn’t this hard for me the last time I changed companies 10 years ago.”
- “I’ve applied for so many jobs, and never even hear anything back!”
- “My LinkedIn profile isn’t attracting any attention.”
- “Recruiters aren’t getting back to me.”
- “Could my age be the reason I’m not getting interviews?”
- “I’ve had it with my boss/company; I need to get out of here ASAP, but I’m not gaining traction!”
- “I’m afraid I’ll be unemployed soon.”
These are all common scenarios experienced by many of my clients. If you’re like many of them, you may feel:
- Afraid you won’t be able to provide for your family
- Frustrated that you haven’t been able to find a better job yet
- Ashamed about being let go from your last job and afraid of how this could hurt your career
- Disillusioned about why you can’t seem to land an interview or offer
- Disappointed that you haven’t moved up for several years
- Burned out from working long hours—but without enough to show for it
It’s true—job search HAS gotten harder and more complex. Results from traditional job search methods are often abysmal, and job searches are taking longer.
Why try to put all the puzzle pieces together yourself? Why try to figure it out based on a patchwork of free advice, most of it conflicting?
You don’t have to do it all yourself. I’m here to help!
