Since 2003 I’ve had the privilege of speaking with hundreds of employers and thousands of job seekers. One thing remains constant, there is a disconnect between employers and job seekers. Employers often say “there are never enough skilled workers to fill our open positions.” Jobseekers say “there are never any good jobs available.”
All⋆Star Career Services gives you the tools needed to help bridge the gap and help land your dream job.
Prior to the explosion of the internet, the job search process was much simpler. You may have faxed or mailed a potential employer your résumé after seeing a classified ad in the newspaper or simply went to their office and handed them a copy of your résumé directly. Those days are a thing of the past.
Today, there are hundreds of job boards, résumé blasting services, and networking sites job seekers use to find employment. It is nearly impossible to apply for any job without going online and filling out an application on the company’s website. You receive an automated email thanking you for your application and asking you to take an hour-long assessment test. You complete the assessment test and then you wait….and wait…and wait….wondering when the HR Manager is going to call you for an interview, but that call never comes. Why? You seem to be the perfect candidate for this job. This is exactly the job you’ve been seeking. What are you doing wrong? How frustrating!!
All⋆Star Career Services helps you understand all aspects of the job search process and get more interviews faster and find your perfect job.
Isn’t hiring a career coach and resume writer expensive?
If you’ve been job searching for some time without success, maybe it’s not what you’re saying, but how you’re coming across on paper. That’s where a résumé writer comes in.
Résumé writers are not just professional writers, but experts in making your résumé stand out from the rest of the applicant pool.
A professionally written résumé can open doors for you that can lead to a great job. A career coach gives you information and tools to navigate the ever-changing job market, help connect with the decision-makers and explore yourself to help obtain your personal and professional goals. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average job search lasts 26 weeks… which is about 6 months!! If you are looking for an annual salary of $70,000, the cost of you NOT working is $1346.15 per week or $35,000!! If hiring a résumé writer and career coach helps get you back to work 3 days sooner, you have made a positive return on your investment.
