QUESTION: Why should I pay for Placement Support Services?
If you used a stronger resume to receive an offer worth $10,000 more per year, what would it be worth over the long term?
A stronger resume will absolutely produce more responses, more interviews, more options and more money. That’s an immediate return on investment!
If you were able to stay in the United States after graduation because you found employment, what would it be worth?
If you were in sales and had a potential deal that was going to pay you a $300,000 commission over a three-year period, how much time, effort and expense would you put into winning the deal?
You would invest a LOT of both effort and expense to land the deal for sure! Well, if you are trying to land a $100,000 per year job, that is exactly the situation you are in. You are selling you! And if they buy you, you stand to make a lot of money over a multi-year deal. So why would you not invest a small amount into increasing your chances, increasing your potential income, improving your positioning and increasing your number of options?
If you were able to start working two months sooner, what would it be worth?
Simple. Two months of salary, the value of the benefits, any 401(k) matching contributions, etc. – a lot more than the cost of Resume and Placement Support Services.

QUESTION: Can I get Career Support before I graduate?
Absolutely. College graduates would be in a better position if they began preparing as freshmen and sophomores by developing professional experiences consistent with their career direction- not just any job.
Hiring managers evaluate college graduates on factors which can be influenced, such as, academic performance, extracurricular activities, internships, work experience, technology aptitude, communication skills and leadership experience. Early preparation produces a powerful competitive edge in the job market. For example, a college degree is a minimum standard for eligibility in many professional positions; but, a complimentary certification produces significant differentiation. Work experience in alignment with education and certifications produces a powerful trifecta impact.
We can help provide guidance to navigate through some of the challenges as well as recommend specific strategies.
QUESTION: What if I'm unhappy with your work on my resume?
Our goal is not to provide just information. We begin each relationship with the objective of delivering TRANSFORMATION. The transformation we produce in the form of enhanced resumes is consistently very powerful; and, it produces more attention, more conversations, more interviews, more offers and more money. If for any reason, you are unhappy, we will rewrite and rework the portions of the resume needed to get it right. This is extremely unlikely however because of the Discovery and Objective exercises at the start of the process. In most cases, 3 revisions are normal; after that, changes are simply iterative.
QUESTION: Is my LinkedIn profile really important?
First, your LinkedIn profile is your online, electronic business card. It constitutes the core of your personal brand and is the foundation of your professional online persona. It is also acceptable to include certain elements and information on your LinkedIn profile that would be inappropriate on a resume. Many HR departments and hiring managers today include a review of your LinkedIn profile during the evaluation of your resume. We can show you how to strategically leverage the LinkedIn profile functionality as a promotional tool to highlight complementary skills, capabilities and experience as an extension of your resume.
Second, LinkedIn provides a platform for cultivating a professional network of colleagues which will grow over your professional career. LinkedIn will enable you to stay connected with past professors, classmates, co-workers from internships and part-time jobs, managers and other students who have graduated and entered the workforce with many other companies.
Finally, a well-written, professional LinkedIn profile shows you are serious about your career and professional goals. It clearly helps differentiate you from peers who have not benefited from this type of coaching and support.
QUESTION: Can you help me if I'm not local or in another country?
Yes. Virtually 100% of our work is online and delivered over the Internet. Skype, Facetime or other video conferencing software provides an opportunity to interact on a more personal level and build a relationship that is foundational to trust and understanding. Furthermore, the principles and concepts are applicable in most developed countries and in some areas, produce even more significant results
