As we all know, job search success depends upon not only a powerful resume but also market conditions and your job search efforts. Disappointment often results from unrealistic expectations regarding the employment market. Recent statistics show that the average length of a job search (at all levels including entry level) is 16.6 weeks (up from about 12.2 weeks last year). A long-time rule of thumb for executive job search has been a month for each $10K of salary. And, of course, in an economic downturn or recession, you will be competing for a much smaller pool of opportunities.
Our primary goal is your satisfaction, and we stand by our work. We do ask that you use your resume aggressively for at least 30 days. This means sending out at least 100 resumes to appropriate, viable targets–positions that are known to be actually still available for which your experience is a close match and for which the resume was targeted. After doing the above, if your resume is not generating “bites,” we will:
- Help you examine your search strategy, and
- If needed, cheerfully and promptly rewrite or revise your resume.
