Charting your own course

I've had a number of clients recently who have been taking this turn in the economy to update their resume and prepare themselves for promotions or transfers within their current companies. It's not a bad strategy.

During times of financial upheaval, it's not uncommon for companies to undergo change. Managers will tell you how positive it is. "Change is good!" This may work until the time of transition results in people being laid off or their department reorganized and they're left behind.

This could be the best time to prepare yourself. Update your resume whether it's just in case of a layoff or maybe on the positive side, it's in the event of a promotion. As the old saying goes, "Be prepared!"

Let’s Find the True You

True You Marketing began as an idea to help people. That’s it. As simple as that.

I wanted to help people find their dream job. I found that all too often that dream job evaded the grasp of a lot of people because they didn’t have a resume that properly conveyed the breadth and depth of their experience. It was heartbreaking to see good people miss out on great jobs because of mediocre resumes.

For that reason, I took on the task of collaborating with people to write outstanding resumes that conveyed their successes and helped hiring managers to understand how those people could make those same accomplishments at their company.

I’ve gotten rave reviews on the resumes that I’ve written from both clients and hiring managers. I’m sure that personal preferences vary, but by and large people seem to like what I do. However, I was learning that resumes were only part of the picture.

While resumes are great if you’re actively looking for a job, what if you just want to found?  Be approached by recruiters within your employer knowing you’d be open to the right offer? Get promoted within your company? Connect with peers in your industry?  Maybe you just want to make friends?

There’s a world out there that’s waiting for you. Waiting for you to share your unique brand. The things that make you uniquely yourself. Your true you.

Whether you want to expand your professional network through LinkedIn or broadcast updates on your personal or private life through Twitter, I can help.

If you’ve been thinking about getting up on LinkedIn and you just don’t know how or it seems daunting to set up your profile, I can help.

If getting out there and posting from a Twitter account sends you into a panic, let me show you the way. I’m happy to help.

My goal is to help you spread your message across any medium of social media you want. I’m here to help you find your True You and share it with the world.
