How does the process work?

First I'll want to speak with you about your current job situation, and I'll determine what additional information I'll need from you. I'll then ask you to email or fax me a copy of your current resume. Once I receive these documents, I'll email you a quote and ask you to contact me to set up an appointment to meet in-person or via phone, which ever you prefer. I ask that all fees must be paid in full via check, cash or PayPal, before I begin working on your documents.

I also ask that you fill out the resume intake form found on the website to collect any missing or additional information not given to me initially. In addition, I ask that you send me 2-3 jobs descriptions of positions you are interested in applying to, so I can get a better idea about your next career move.Once all of these three requests are met, I will begin to create a high-impact resume directed toward your current career goal. The resume will include the appropriate keywords and accomplishments for your specific career field as well, butI will count on you as the “field expert” throughout the project.

Before our 1st official in person meeting, I'll email you the documents edited in draft format, at least 50% completed. At that meeting, we'll discuss any further information or edits you'd like to add to the document. I'll then continue finalizing everything on my own and will email you the finished product for your approval. Once we have agreed that there are no other changes to be made, I'll send you a completed resume for you to utilize in your job search.

Will we meet in person or just by phone?

We can meet in person or via phone whichever is more convenient for you. If in person, I meet my clients at the Livingston Library or Starbucks.I will be available by phoneafter we have worked on the resume together to discuss and complete the final document.

What if I don't have an old or outdated resume to email or fax you?

No problem. If you don't have a resume, I can collect all the pertinent information by phone and an intake sheet that you'll fill out to create the final resume. It is your responsibility to provide any and all additional missing information you think will be of use during this process.

What if my current or most recent resume is two or more pages long?

Many clients have come to me with 2-4 page resumes. Typically a resume should be no more than 2 pages, but we can work together to edit the document down to size.

Who will I be working with?

I am a sole practitioner, so you will be working directly with me.

What is the timeline for the process?

The process typically takes one week, depending on the client's schedule. I can create a resume in 48 hours, but there is an increase in fee for that. The 1st proof will be emailed in 7 business days. Comments are requested from you within 7 days from receipt of the documents. All projects must be complete within 30 days of our meeting. Any change requests after 30 days will cost an additional fee. Once you are sent the final copy and we agree it is complete, any typos, errors or omissions are the client's sole responsibility.

Can I revise the resume before we finalize it?

Yes, please review documents closely and send any revisions via email. Comments are requested on the document 7 days before our in scheduled meeting. There are no fees for additional “proofing” corrections before project completion.

How will I receive my final product? What format will it be in?

Final resumes and cover letters will be emailed to you in MS Word format or PDF at the client's request.

How does creating a LinkedIn profile work

LinkedIn Profiles are completed on your LinkedIn page provided you give me your username and password to fill in the information. I will not publish the profile until you give me final approval on the page. Fee for a LinkedIn profile must be paid in advance for me to get started. Note: I also offer LinkedIn training and profile editing/updating of a previous developed profile.

How will I pay you?

You can pay me by check, cash, or PayPal found on my website. I request that all fees are paid in full before I begin working on your resume. If payment is sent by check, please mail to Career Connections, PO Box 2315, Livingston, NJ 07039. If by PayPal, please pay through the link on the website via your bank account instead of your credit card or there will be a convenience charge to you of 3%. Your payment indicates full authorization to proceed with work and an understanding that fees for services are not refundable once work begins on the project. PAYMENT IS DUE IN FULL PRIOR TO ANY PROJECT.

What if I need to reschedule or cancel?

If you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment, I appreciate the courtesy of 24 hours notice. If you cancel prior to our scheduled in person or phone consultation, funds can be applied to a rescheduled appointment or refunded minus a nonrefundable $75 fee to coverwork in process and preparation time.
