According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, over the last 2 years the average length of time that people are out of work is about 20 weeks (5 months).
If you earn $100,000 per year, you lose $400/day for each day you’re out of work. Here’s the math: $100,000/50 weeks=$2,000/week. $2,000/week divided by 5 days=$400/day.
Not only that, but the rules of the job-search game have changed, again, and you need someone on your side to help design and create materials to meet your career progression goals.
Do you know how to come up with a list of target companies you want to work for?
Do you know how to research a target company effectively?
Are you asking for informational interviews and not getting anything back?
Are you sending out resumes and not getting call backs?
Are you getting interviews but not getting offers?
With these and many other career progression goals, we can help.
In the last 15 years we’ve coached over 700 people. Many have come back to say “thank you – I really believe your approach worked!”
Recently, Don participated in a panel of networking meeting facilitators, hosted by Paul Cameron of <SpeedUpMyJobSearch.com>. There are two links to the video – the highlights (about 15 minutes), and the whole show (about 47 minutes). Please let us know if there is anything we can do to assist you in your job search.
We have a burning passion for helping people create the tools required to successfully find a rewarding, fulfilling position in today’s workforce. Our mantra is, “if we can help you land just one day faster, then we have achieved something meaningful.” This comes from our own experiences being laid off and out of work for extended periods of time. In other words, we’ve “been there and done that.”
“Ask 100 people for resume and job search advice and get 100 differing opinions. Save yourself a lot of time and aggravation, contact Don first. He’s the pro”.– Tom P.

When rewriting your resume it’s not only about the resume itself, that’s just one tool in your toolbox. We incorporate an holistic job-search philosophy and approach to your campaign. Together we will create your unique branding message. We’ll explore informational interviews (how to get them and make them useful) and upon completion of our consultation, you will know how to write a handbill, thank you notes, and have an elevator pitch. You will also get ideas for follow up tracking.
“The changes you suggested helped my resume and got results.”– Tom S.
Also recently, Don was interviewed by C. Steven Weirich on his Arlington-Prospect Advice Givers (APAG) Podcast. You can listen to that specific episode here. It is about 40 minutes in length, but full of useful tidbits about job search tools, strategies and tactics, as well as eCareerCoaching.com itself.
If you need:
– a resume makeover,
– coaching about interviewing,
– a more effective handbill,
– a more complete and compelling LinkedIn profile,
– an elevator pitch,
– advice on networking,
please send us an email to discuss your options. You can also book time directly with us here.
After our initial consultation, we’ll edit your resume using Google Docs for Business (G Suite) products so the next time we speak, our changes, edits, and comments will be accessible on-screen in real time. Google promotes this version as more secure than the personal version of Google Docs.
If you are currently employed and searching, our evening availability is especially convenient.
Your career is a unique journey – and it’s only yours. Let’s find a way to tell your story in the most compelling way possible.
Be found. Get hired.
