Resume, Cover Letter & LinkedIn Profile Writing

Frustrated by all the conflicting advice you’ve heard about resumes?  Unhappy with how your current document presents your qualifications?  Facing a bad case of writer’s block and ready to outsource this step of the job search process to a highly qualified professional?  Whether you need expert assistance with your resume or any other form of career-related copywriting challenge, Career Horizons can help.  Having drafted these types of documents for more than two decades, we pride ourselves on understanding the latest, greatest resume conventions hiring managers are looking for—and can partner with you to develop a compelling resume and/or LinkedIn profile with minimal fuss and often within a rapid time frame.

Corporate Outplacement Programs

With over 20 years of experience in the outplacement field, our staff has helped hundreds of organizations facilitate smooth employee separations and can be retained to help both individual employees and executives—as well as larger groups of displaced workers—move forward successfully after the shock/disruption of a downsizing event.  As opposed to many outplacement providers, our services are highly customized and centered around providing individual advice and instruction, not herding people through large, impersonal workshops or online career centers.  Even in the best of cases, losing a job is a very stressful and unsettling experience, and we believe that the “personal touch” is essential in helping people transition through these events successfully and on to their next career chapter.

Despite a flood of imitators, nobody has yet invented a more powerful technology for facilitating career and business networking success than LinkedIn.com. And yet, many people still aren’t set up correctly on this critical networking tool—or may have joined the site years ago, but still don’t quite “get” the system and how to leverage it to its amazing potential.  In light of these realities, Career Horizons hosts this monthly two-hour webinar dedicated to getting people up and running successfully on the LinkedIn system.  This training is designed for all but the most advanced LinkedIn users and provides detailed instruction on how to properly configure your LinkedIn Profile, connect with other users, and use sophisticated searching methods to generate useful referrals.  In addition, the training provides a number of important pointers regarding system privacy settings and etiquette.
