LinkedIn Profiles

My role in the executive search industry is "researcher". What that means is that I’m the person who receives your resume and puts it in the database. I'm also the person who reads and interprets LinkedIn profiles when looking for candidates. I construct resume and LinkedIn profiles the way hiring managers and recruiters read them.

What Comes Out of A
Resume Deconstruction Process?


  • A clearer understanding of your background for hiring managers.

    A resume is the starting point of a deeper conversation about your background. Often times resumes are constructed using language that describes your experience in general terms. However, if your competition has a similar background and experience, and that experience is more articulate than yours on their resume, you can see who already has the advantage. Clarity and understanding are key when it comes to getting a second look from hiring managers. I specialize in this. After working together, your resume will be a crystal-clear, solid documentation of your work experience the way hiring managers need to know it.

  • A clearer understanding of your background for you.

    You will likely recall, re-discover, and get a better understanding of your own experience through our process together. I ask a lot of questions. Having to think out, then articulate your answers puts your experience into a perspective for yourself. This informs how you will talk about your experience to others. This is particularly powerful when applied to your networking meetings and job interviews. This aspect of working together is a major advantage over doing your resume on your own.

  • Keywords.

    As a recruitment professional who handles a candidate database and utilizes LinkedIn to find candidates, I can tell you that keywords are a crucial part of a good, findable profile. However, our resume and LinkedIn process does not involve simply plugging in keywords relevant to your background. Instead, our resume/LinkedIn process reveals This includes all the relevant keywords that someone like me, the person who look for candidates, needs when searching databases (which includes LinkedIn).

  • Branding.

    Personal branding is something that causes a lot of stress for job-searchers. There is a lot of emphasis put on the development of this job-search aspect, but with an approach that is largely misguided. Here’s the truth of it.Simply put, there is no such thing as a branding-first approach. There can’t be. Personal branding is formed by the comprehensive experience of the individual. What this means is that a personal brand can’t be revealed until an exploration process of your background is complete.In other words, if I know nothing about you, how can I know what your brand is? However, if I learn everything about you (such as through a clear, articulate resume), your branding comes through on its own.Discussion à Exploration à Discovery à Your Personal Brand.

  • Knowledge & Confidence.

    My goal is not to just offer a service, but to teach you how to do it yourself. Job search can be intimidating, and often comes with peaks and valleys of success. But knowledge is power, and knowing what you are doing gives you confidence to handle it all. I don’t just tell you how to do things, but explain With this kind of insight and confidence, you will feel good knowing that you are making the right moves out there on your own. You’re not just getting help from me, you are empowering yourself.
