Time for a Tune-up? Want to continue the work?
This page is for long-standing and returning clients of The Résumé Studio who need to update a document, or want to stay engaged in their career development.
There are three categories on this page. Choose the one that's right for you.
OPTION 1 of 3: Ad hoc Updates
If you’ve been away for some time and need to schedule a general update, or need ad hoc coaching, get the ball rolling by self-scheduling your first work session. Additional time will be scheduled and billed as you go.
Document Update (Résumé, LinkedIn, Etc.)
Be sure I have the latest versions of your master documents in advance of our first meeting; otherwise, I'll pull your most recent archived master file.
OPTION 2 of 3: Continuity Coaching (Ad Hoc or Subscription)
If the kind of attention you gave your career during our work together is something you’d like to continue, then Continuity Coaching is what that looks like.
What is Continuity Coaching?
I've designed Continuity Coaching to help clients reinforce their immediate needs and long-term commitments to their careers. Ongoing support, accountability, and support helps clients conduct a meaningful job search and challenge themselves with regular access to a thought partner.
As an ongoing sounding board, skeptic, and champion invested in your success, I'll meet with you regularly to tend to whatever needs you have.
Practical, short-term examples:
Customize your résumé and/or cover letter to a specific job spec
Prepare for and support your stealth or active job search
Write or edit follow-up materials (e.g., thank you letters / emails)
Develop and manage networking strategy
Long-term strategy examples:
Strategize around career decisions
Keep your written brand / message on point
Cultivate long-term goals (e.g., promotions, board appointments)
Nurture your professional brand
Raise your visibility as a thought leader
Pressure test career ideas
Regular monthly calls:
Redeem appointments anytime my schedule allows using the quick link provided.
Use or lose the time. (Time will reset monthly/upon each new auto-payment.) I've mused on allowing rollover time, but and the risk of it becoming untenable over time is too great. If you think you won't use the time each month, don't subscribe!
Cancel your subscription anytime.
OPTION 3 of 3: Job Search Partner (Ad Hoc or Subscription)
If you’re heading into, or aggressively conducting, a stealth or active job search and need a regular resource to answer job search questions—or need a careful, strategic thought partner—this is your support system until you land that job.
What is the Job Search Partner offering?
The in-depth work we did during your project doesn't have to stop at my delivery of your master documents. You can't imagine the wonky questions that surface during a job search, and when they do, you'll need answers.
Here are a few examples of past job search coaching scenarios:
You're referred to someone, they agree to meet, and you need to develop a meeting strategy (e.g., tone, pre-meeting questions, expectations, follow-ups and thanks yous, next steps)
A recruiter contacted you and you're not sure what to do next
An odd inbound query came in and you don't know whether you should ignore it or respond to it
You suddenly have a promotion offer
Your dream job came along and you need to *calm down* and think rationally
You need to identify your "Top 10 people to contact" about your stealth job search intentions, and then to develop a contact strategy for each
Regular monthly calls (subscription):
Redeem appointments anytime my schedule allows using the quick link(s) provided (availability permitting).
Use or lose the time. (Time will reset monthly/upon each new auto-payment.) Rollover time is impossible for a variety of reasons. If you think you won't use the allotted weekly time, don't subscribe.
Cancel your subscription or switch to Continuity Coaching when you land your new job.
Time is billable at $250/hour, with various programs and packages priced for efficiency of scale.
