THE PROS OF
USING HELP FROM A PROFESSIONAL CAREER CONSULTANT
Ratkoczy - Executive Career Management Consultant
If you have a
tight budget or fancy yourself a wordsmith, you may be hesitant to
use professional job search or even resume building advice. But
consider the benefits of making such a choice. Like in any other
search, when you are looking for a professional in any specialty you
want to make sure you find, select and use the best.
How we define
the best comes with the territory. But in most cases we want the
most experience, high quality and available individual(s). Itís true
that sometimes and not always the best may cost a bit more .
Why would you
pay more for something you can get for less? Simple quality. If you
hire someone that will guide you with a comprehensive process that
will yield better and faster results itís probably more than worth
hire someone that will help you get a job instead of in two months
in one single month. You need to calculate your salary gain of the
month. (e.g. If you make anywhere from $2000 to $10000 every month,
well if you pay letís say $1000 more you still made $1000 profit and
you avoided over 30 days of job search.
to consider is your resume building ability. Your resume is your
calling card and need to be the best representation of your skills,
experience and knowledge. Not only that, but some marketing included
in the structure of your resume may attract more interested parties
than not. As a professional Career Management Consultant (Career
Counselor, Career Coach, Executive Career Management Consultant,
etc) you had the opportunity to build, oversee and correct thousands
of resumes in multiple disciplines and you had also thousands of
opportunities to personally see what works and what does not work,
it makes you a professional. More people interested in you
translates into more job opportunities for you, which translates in
more leverage and potentially a higher salary.
point brings us to negotiation skills. Letís see... How often do you
negotiate your salary? Itís true that a good negotiator does not
wait until last minute to start the process but sets it up from the
first interaction, and believe or not it start at the time of first
contact. The way your resume has been written your cover letter is
developed and the first words you say when an interested employer or
recruiter approaches you , is going to dictate the final outcome of
your compensation. Just remember that compensation includes many
more items besides your future salary.
A good resume
professional knows what recruiters want and don't want to see in a
resume. A professional , will know (and include) keywords that will
help recruiters find your resume when searching online.
The best way
of qualifying a professional is checking references, after all
employers do it with us most of the time. Well ask for at least
three individuals that have hired your potential new career coach
and check what they have to say about their experience with them.
When it come to this donít be shy. Every case will be different but
if your pick knows what is doing and has a wealth of experience, it
will also make a great difference in your search, which you might be
able to measure in dollars and cents.
