Who Uses Career Services? Real Life Examples

When we first launched Strategic Resumes & Career Coaching in the mid-1990s, our colleagues assumed that we would primarily be servicing those at the lower end of the skills hierarchy.

And it is absolutely logical to assert that those with the least skills, in terms of resume preparation, job search strategies, and interviewing, require the most assistance.

However, for a variety of reasons, and perhaps ironically, it is those closer to the top of the skills spectrum that are much more likely to use our services and take advantage of our offerings.

Why? Perhaps it is because those who are already successful are more finely attuned to doing “Whatever It Takes” to advance their careers, and they want every edge they can to land the best jobs.

Here are a few examples of our recent clients…

An investigative reporter with a Master’s degree in writing who worked for a Pultizer Prize-winning publication…

A senior-level cybersecurity programmer and professional who has serviced $100 million government contracts…

An executive healthcare administrator who has served as President & CEO of large hospital corporations…

An government attorney who has served in political campaigns at the highest levels now seeking a new career direction…
