Why Hire Robin as Your Career Counselor?
I started my career counseling practice because I was really good at interview coaching and resume writing. I had done these tasks as part of my job when I was at the University of Washington and at Columbia College. My students landed great jobs and I just loved the work because I was making an important difference in a person’s life. Fast forward twenty years later and I still love what I do. That is why I continue working one-on-one with individuals just like you. My clients are either currently employed, laid off, or seeking to change careers. I’ve worked with hundreds and hundreds of individuals and you all want the same thing – a new position. I’ve developed the talent and insight needed to really make a difference. That’s what keeps me going — I want to see you succeed.
Resume Writing: I’ve written over 5,000 resumes in my working career. The key skill I have is knowing what employers want to see and how to draw out your talents and accomplishments. So you get employers’ attention. Sounds easy – believe me it’s not. I put all my learned insight and effort into creating that resume or guiding you if you are taking notes when we talk and you are writing it yourself.
Interview Preparation: You get my undivided attention when we work together. I use my insights and hiring expertise to help you cut through the competition so you can be selected as the one the employer hires. I’ll give you a strategy to send you into the interview to do your very best. We will have role-played answers and I’ll cover things you hadn’t even thought about. You’ll feel confident and ready once we are done.
Job hunting, Career Change, LinkedIn profile creation, handling salary questions before you torpedo yourself and your future income – all of it is hard. You know that. You are reading these pages because you need someone to help you with some part of the process. I’d like to be the one you partner with.
My Recommendation All my job search programs, strategies and techniques are well documented in my seven books and have been market tested with tremendous success. I recommend you read one of my books before you call me. Then, you’ll know my style, how I think and work. You’ll feel comfortable and know I’m the right career counselor to advise you.
Does Robin have experience in MY industry? The answer is almost always YES.We don’t offer free intro sessions because I have too many clients and not enough time. You can call my assistant who has been with me for years and you can discuss your situation. She can answer your questions about my services and set an appointment so we can begin to work together.
No matter where you live I can help you through telephone consultations, video and audio playbacks, or using Skype. We can record the sessions which can be helpful, as you can play it back whenever you need it. My assistant can discuss with you times and options for an appointment. I’m available Monday through Friday but weekends I’m with my family and at my son’s sporting events.
