Resume, Cover Letter & LinkedIn Profile Writing

(Apologies: Currently about 2-3 weeks out from being able to take on new resume-writing projects!)

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.

Workshops, Webinars & Upcoming Events

Leveraging LinkedIn Webinar (Click Here to Register)
Date: Wed, 12/13/17  •  Time: 6:00pm-8:00pm PST  •  Location: Online  •  Cost: $75

Despite a flood of imitators, nobody has yet invented a more powerful technology for facilitating career, sales, and business networking success than LinkedIn.com. And yet, despite there now being over 500 million users on the system, most LinkedIn members still don’t quite “get it” or understand how to leverage this site 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 LinkedIn and teaching them the tricks of the trade.  This training is designed for all but the most advanced users and provides detailed instruction on how to properly configure your profile, connect with other members, and most importantly, use the sophisticated (and free) searching methods available to amplify your networking efforts and generate useful referrals.  Additionally, the training discusses numerous important pointers regarding system privacy settings, etiquette, and messaging strategy.  All in all, you’ll walk away from the webinar with a very pragmatic understanding of how to take your LinkedIn efforts to the next level — and might wonder how you ever lived without it, once you see examples of how it can be used to find and build relationships with exactly the right people for your business/career purposes!
