What is this optimization thing and why does my resume need it?

op.ti.mi.za.tion

Pronunciation: \äp-tə-mə-'zā-shən\

Function: noun

Date: 1857

an act, process, or methodology of making something (as a design, system, or decision) as fully perfect, functional, or effective as possible; specifically: the mathematical procedures (as finding the maximum of a function) involved in this

The job market has always been a competition. Today's job market is ultra-competitive due to the current economic environment, fewer available jobs, and more people competing for those jobs.

Even in an excellent job market, virtually every employer's hiring process is seriously flawed and in most cases exists primarily as a process to disqualify job candidates. Many of the reasons for this are documented in the EMPeril Effect, a summary of research conducted by Matt Garley, founder and president of Career Success Advisors.

To achieve job search success in the current job environment and for the foreseeable future, qualified job-seekers will need optimum visibility, a highly optimized resume, highly effective job search methodologies and processes, and an above-average amount of determination and diligence, proper timing, and luck; the type of "luck" you create for yourself through your actions.

Career Success Advisors and Career Success Resumes are able provide today's job-seekers with the insider insights, tools, techniques, enhancements, methodologies and strategies to optimize the resume and the person to most effectively leverage available employment opportunities.

The tools we are able to provide today can give a qualified job-seeker a significant competitive advantage in today's market place and throughout an entire career.


Should I get your Resume Performance Optimization help now, or wait until the economy gets better?

The ultimate answer depends on your own personal situation and how critical your need is to obtain employment. But regardless of your situation, there are many reasons why it makes sense to obtain our job search optimization skills now rather than later—and very few reasons that would support a decision to wait.

First, even though there are many more people unemployed who are looking for a smaller number of available jobs, many are passive job-seekers or people who, for all practical purposes, have given up on the job search and are waiting for significant indicators of a substantial turnaround in the job situation.

When this turnaround occurs, inevitably there will be a disproportionately large surge of activity by all job-seekers for a relatively small number of new job opportunities. Such a scenario is likely to create an environment for the individual job seeker that is even less favorable than it is today.

And due to the above, when such a turnaround occurs and the majority of job-seekers still find themselves struggling to find suitable employment despite what will be the much heralded "job turnaround," many will then decide that it is time to make their career investment in our services.

This is a clear situation where being ahead of the curve, compared to being behind the curve, can provide exponential benefits.

There are jobs available today and employers are hiring today—people are starting new jobs every day of the week. By properly optimizing yourself for the job search now, you can create and capitalize on job opportunities available today; perhaps just as important, you can put your new skills into play to further develop and hone, so when that ideal employment opportunity presents itself you are not approaching it with your training wheels still on.

While all of our services and programs are capable of providing a substantial competitive advantage from day one, the comfort, confidence and competence that comes through practice and application enables greater mastery of the tools, techniques and methods that we make available to you.


How are your Resume Performance Optimization services different than other companies resume writing services?

We are not a resume writing service—even our most basic services go well beyond the capabilities of other resume writing services.

Almost any traditional "resume writer" and many job-seekers can take a readily available resume template and produce a good-looking resume.

The Resume Performance Optimization Engineers at Career Success Resumes are senior-level industry-insider career advancement experts with a minimum of ten years in the recruitment/headhunter profession.

In this capacity, they have disqualified thousands of job-seekers each year simply on the face value of their resume.   On average, they advance fewer than 3% of all of the resumes that they view to the hiring manager.

Take that 10+ years of recruitment/headhunting expertise, add the qualities of a master resume writer and the experience of a real-world Career Success Senior Advisor, and you have just profiled the highly effective resources and talent behind Career Success Resumes.

See President's Sidebar for more information.

What is MAX-Visibility! Resume Optimization?

Max-Visibility! is a program developed exclusively by and is only available through Career Success Advisors to enable our clients to achieve maximum visibility on the top online job boards used by employers, recruiters, staffing agencies and headhunters who are seeking to fill open positions.

These hiring entities can pay as much as a $500 a week to search for employees on these job boards.

And just like a Google search, the results on the first few pages are the ones that get the most attention, because the finely tuned analytics of the search engines are designed to deliver the "most relevant" resumes first.

MAX-Visibility! Resume services optimize a client's resume in such a way that we are able to make this guarantee: when a resume search is performed on the client-specified, position-relevant criteria, the clients resume will appear on one of those top pages for two or more of the most popular job boards used by employers, including Monster, CareerBuilder, Dice and others.

Can you guarantee that I will get a job with your Resume Optimization Services?

Unfortunately, we can't guarantee that anyone will get a job in any job market, because so many factors are well outside our control.

We provide our clients with advanced and highly effective resumes, coaching, tools, techniques, tactics, methods, and strategies that will provide them with a significant advantage over other job-seekers in any job market, but we cannot control how any of our clients will then go on to apply the tools and information to their situation in order to leverage that advantage.

Our unique Try it Risk-Free Satisfaction Guarantee allows clients to actually participate in our Job Search Optimization and Competitive Edge 360° programming to experience the Career Success Advisors difference first-hand before fully committing.

My job history is lacking—-can your Resume Optimization Programs help me?

Yes. Our Resume Performance Optimization Services help minimize job history deficiencies, though a candidate's  job history will almost always play a key role in any job search.

Our job search programs, services, and coaching have the potential to significantly improve anybody's job search approach and presentation. We can fully optimize almost any client situation to most effectively minimize weaknesses and maximize the relevant criteria, in ways that can greatly enhance the probability of job search success.

Our Senior Career Advisors provide objective root-cause analysis and career optimization coaching to help identify and better understand the underlying cause of career success deficiencies, then expert and objective coaching and countermeasures to get you back on the career success track.

Occasionally we work with job-seekers whose employment history or other key criteria are such that we cannot truly add value to their situation. In such cases, we advise the job-seeker of the limitations of our services and suggest alternative resources to assist them in achieving their career objectives.

Are your Resume Optimization services effective for all occupations?

To a large degree, yes-—but virtually all our services provide the most value and greatest competitive advantage to those in white-collar, technical, professional, sales, and management- and executive-level positions with compensation ranges between $50K and $350K.

This is due primarily to the unique employer hiring processes and dynamics for these positions of responsibility which may not be present in other occupations.

I've had my resume written by a professional resume writer (or firm). Can your services still help me?

Chances are, we can.

Our resume optimization engineers have a minimum of ten years experience working directly with employers as corporate recruiters, staffing company recruiters, or headhunters.

Very few resume writers have this type of experience. Without it, their services are of limited value; therefore, the true effectiveness of your resume in today's job market may be questionable.

Our general rule of thumb is that if you're satisfied with the effectiveness of your resume in your job search, you probably don't need our help.

If you have paid to have your resume written by another firm within the last 90 days, we may be able to apply a full or partial credit toward your Career Success Resumes Optimization Services.  A valid receipt or other proof of purchase is required for any such credit.

Do I need Resume Optimization, Job Search Optimization, or Career Coaching?

That is something each individual must determine for his or her own personal and professional situation; however, we will be happy to work with you in making this assessment. In general, the key differentiators between these professional services offerings are:

RESUME PERFORMANCE OPTIMIZATION

We believe that, for most people, the resume is the most important document of their career. It can play a critical role a number of situations.

This service typically benefits: those who are between jobs, seeking to change employers, seeking to change careers, or otherwise seeking to optimize their resume-based credentials to maximize their resume visibility and viability in a job search in any job market.

Resume Performance Optimization Emphasis: On the resume itself; optimized for a variety of job search situations. Includes various degrees of one-on-one job search coaching to optimize the potential and the benefits of the newly Performance-Optimized Resume.

JOB SEARCH OPTIMIZATION

Our job search optimization programs have been developed specifically to assist job-seekers who are struggling to differentiate themselves and gain a competitive advantage in today's ultra-competitive job market. Each of our job search optimization programs provide our clients with industry insider information, tips, techniques, enhancements, methodologies, and strategies to enable them to notch up their job search and gain a significant advantage over their competition.

Programming includes group seminars and one-on-one, highly personalized individual coaching programs suitable for virtually any situation, including specialty programming for recent college graduates and executive-level professionals, as well as a VIP/FastTrack program for those who need it.

This service typically benefits: those who are between jobs, seeking to change employers, seeking to change careers, or otherwise seeking to fully optimize the entire job search process and their resume credentials to maximize the end-to-end viability of their job search in any job market.

Job Search Optimization Emphasis: On nearly every aspect of the job search that plays a role in job search success. A portfolio of Job Search Optimization programs offer distinct levels of customization and detail to best address individual need, circumstances, and price points. Programs include various degrees of Resume Performance Optimization and follow-up coaching with options to custom-tailor any program to meet virtually any need.

CAREER SUCCESS COACHING

Highly effective career coaching can serve a broad range of purposes and needs and can provide a significant return on investment financially, in achieving job satisfaction, and in the actualization of life goals.

  • Clarifying job/career situation
  • Developing new perspectives
  • Conquering fear and uncertainty
  • Discerning professional and personal identity
  • Recognizing career passion
  • Leveraging strengths
  • Honing career management skills
  • Improving decision-making
  • Avoiding repeated mistakes
  • Overcoming obstacles
  • Maintaining momentum and focus
  • Finding direction and solutions
  • Gaining a competitive advantage
  • Sustaining morale and positive thinking
  • Improving performance and get results
  • Increased sense of well-being
  • Achieving success and empowerment

Coaching by an objective career professional can be helpful in the following areas:

This service typically benefits:

Those who are at a professional or personal plateau or crossroad and seek to examine the possibilities, chart a new course, and set new goals to achieve new levels of personal and professional fulfillment;


Career professionals who have encountered a significant challenge or other obstacle that would benefit from truly objective professional analysis, evaluation, constructive feedback and/or sage advice and critical commentary—as direct as you need it to be;


Anyone who needs a confidential sounding-board or objective third party professional business and life coach to provide the unique and unbiased listening and feedback that business associates, family members and/or friends often cannot provide.

Career Success Coaching Emphasis: On the individual-—immediate need, short-term, or no limits.

How much does your Resume Optimization Service cost?

Most of our services fall within a price range of $79-999, with some more expensive custom programs available to provide clients with a "whatever it takes" approach in helping them meet their critical career success objectives.

For many of our clients, significant outcomes can be achieved through our services for the cost equivalent of 1-2 days of their targeted compensation.

All our services and programs can provide a significant ROI (return on investment), both in the short term and throughout an entire career, giving them the very real potential to effectively pay for themselves many times over. In most cases, our resume and job search services qualify as a tax-deductible expense; check with your tax professional.

With our unique Try it Risk-Free Satisfaction Guarantee, clients may actually participate in our Job Search Optimization and Competitive Edge 360° programming to experience the Career Success Advisors difference first-hand before fully committing.

Of course, individual results will vary, in that we are able to provide our clients with the tools and knowledge they need to achieve success, we have control over how any client apply these resources to their unique situation.

What if I want or need additional help after I'm done with a service, program, or seminar?

Many of our services and programs include additional follow-up sessions as part of the package, either in person or remotely via phone or teleconference.

If a client's needs extend beyond that, or if the original package did not include additional follow-up sessions, we have optional follow-up coaching to accommodate virtually any situation or need.

Your resume prices seem higher than those of some other resume services. Why?

Like many professional services, resume-related services can be found with a broad range of pricing and quality options. In pricing our services, we do periodic national surveys that compare our deliverables against other similar offerings and service levels.

Our Resume Performance Optimization services go well beyond those of traditional resume-writing firms. Our value proposition is truly unique in that our employment industry expert Senior Career Success Advisors optimize the resume for maximum effectiveness and also optimize each client by providing personally delivered job search coaching that is tailored to their individual needs.

In most cases, our resume services also include MAX-Availability job board optimization, which by itself can be of extremely high value to any job-seeker. This type of service is not available anywhere else at any price.

In comparing our pricing and our deliverables, we have found that our pricing is similar to that of other premium-level resumes service providers; yet in total, our services and value greatly exceeds that of other firms.

We believe the unique value we provide to our clients in this way becomes quite evident, quite quickly. Our assurance of such quality is backed by our innovative Try it Risk-Free Satisfaction Guarantee.

I don't live close enough for your in-person services—can you work with clients remotely?

Yes.

We have integrated the highest quality video teleconferencing technologies into our services' delivery methods to allow us to provide our highly personalized one-on-one Career Success Coaching anywhere in the world, and our Senior Advisors have the flexibility to coordinate their schedules with any time zone. 98% of the time, our video teleconferencing technologies do not require the client to download any software to their computer, nor is it necessary for the client to have a video camera available unless the client wishes to provide the Senior Advisor with the capability to view them "live" during the sessions.

In many cases we have provided our service remotely over the phone with little or no loss of program value to the client.

How long will it take me to get a job after you optimize my resume?

Many factors come into play that can affect how long it takes one of our clients to find his or her opportunity of choice.

The resume, of course, is the most important document of any job search and can be a help or a hindrance throughout the entire job search, interviewing and hiring process. In many cases it is the resume alone that prevents job-seekers from access to the majority of available jobs—it is not unusual for hiring professionals to eliminate 97% or more of all candidates simply on the face value of the resume.

Our Resume Performance Optimization services are designed to help our clients get increased visibility to the employers who are hiring, maximize the available opportunities, increase the likelihood of making it to each employer's short list, improve the probability of success during the interview process, and better position themselves for compensation negotiations.

How long it will take any individual to achieve their job search objectives is also significantly affected by external factors such as how effectively each client applies the tools we provide, the availability of client-suitable employment opportunities in their particular area, the compensation needs of the client, and the local availability or absence of other well-qualified candidates.

All of our Resume Performance Optimization and Job Search Optimization services are designed to improve our clients' viability for available employment opportunities in ways that will help minimize the time it will take for them to find suitable employment in any job market.

I have an important interview tomorrow! How can I get some help ASAP?

Career Success Advisors VIP-designated clients have the ability to contact a Senior Advisor on short notice to receive opportunity-specific coaching and guidance.

Whenever possible, we will arrange such sessions with the Senior Advisor already familiar with the specific situation.

In many cases, these follow-up sessions are included as part of the original services package. Where they are not already included, or if additional sessions are needed that go beyond those included in the original package, such sessions are available separately at a Career Success Advisors' VIP preferred rate.

For those who are not Career Success Advisors' VIPs, such sessions are available in 30-minute increments at Career Success Advisors' listed fee rates, with Preferred Member packages available.

Will your Resume Optimization Services help if employers are not hiring?

There are jobs available today and employers are hiring today—people are starting new jobs every day of the week. By properly optimizing yourself for the job search now, you can create and capitalize on job opportunities available today; perhaps just as important, you can put your new skills into play to further develop and hone so when that ideal employment opportunity presents itself you are not approaching it with your training wheels still on.

While all our services and programs are capable of providing a substantial competitive advantage from day one, the comfort, confidence and competence that comes through practice and application enables greater mastery and of the tools, techniques and methods we make available to you.

I'm about to graduate from college with little relevant job history—can you help me?

There are several groups of job-seekers for whom the difficulties of today's job market are greatly compounded—one of those is recent college graduates.

Recognizing this, we have developed job search optimization programs specifically for the unique needs of college graduates, including those with little or no relevant job history.

There are employers out there who are currently hiring college graduates today, despite the current economic climate—but there is an overwhelming number of college graduates seeking those opportunities.

To address the complex issues facing recent college graduates, our Graduate Advantage Job Search Optimization program takes a multi-dimensional approach which includes Resume Performance Optimization, job targeting, getting the inside information that can land the job, interviewing optimization, and maximizing compensation.

We even coach college grads on how to "knock the socks off of their new employer" during the first 12 months to enable them to get their career on the job success fast-track AND keep it there! In the early stage of a career, this program offers the opportunity to reap a huge return on investment both in the short and long term.

See our Graduate Advantage Job Search Optimization Program Data Sheet for more information.

Do your free seminars provide all of the "insider information"?

Or: Will your free seminar provide me with the "job search advantage"?

Our free seminars provide a balanced mix of highly relevant and highly effective insider insights, tips, techniques, methods and strategies representing employment industry best practices and, to varying degrees, include elements not typically presented to the public by other firms offering employment-related services.

For our free seminars to provide value to a broad cross-section of professions, experiences, backgrounds and needs in a relatively short period, the content is dynamic and adapted to the needs of the individuals present.

The experience, knowledge and unique needs of any individual attending one of the seminars will largely determine the benefit they may receive.

Will your Resume Optimization Services make my job search easier?

The term "easier" can be quite subjective, depending on who is asking the question.

All our services are designed to enable our clients to achieve greater success throughout the job search process. A diligent job seeker with qualifications suitable for the employment objective will typically find that the practical application of our Job Search Optimization tools, methods and processes directly resulted in a much more effective job search.

Job search success for most people, however, remains largely relative: what you put in is what you will get out. We help our clients optimize themselves to be able to get all of the right stuff, in all the right places, at the right times, to get better results.

We have found that there are three classic categories of job-seekers: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened.

Sorry, but we cannot help job-seekers in the last two categories.

Do your resume writers have certifications or other credentials?

We do not require our Resume Optimization Engineers to obtain third-party resume-writing certifications.

In relative terms, for the Career Success Advisors/Career Success Resumes deliverables, presenting a third-party resume-writing certification would be compatible to a tenured college professor offering a high school-level G.E.D. as a credential or certification.

While in general such certifications do serve the purpose of providing the general public with some minimal assurance of subject matter knowledge regarding the practical aspects of generalized resume production, the rudimentary nature of most resume certification agencies fail to meet the minimum qualification requirements we have for our resume optimization professionals.

After receiving your help, what else will I need to do to get results?

All our services are designed to enable our clients to achieve greater success throughout the job search process. A diligent job seeker with qualifications suitable for the employment objective will typically find that the practical application of our Job Search Optimization tools, methods and processes directly resulted in a much more effective job search.

Job search success for most people, however, remains largely relative: what you put in is what you will get out. We help our clients optimize themselves to be able to get all of the right stuff, in all the right places, at the right times, to get better results.

If you are seriously considering our services for your situation, we have found that there are three classic categories of job-seekers: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened.

It is important to understand up front that we cannot provide any real value to job-seekers in the last two categories.

What type of payments do you take?

We accept most payment forms including Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, PayPal, checks and cash.

Do you have extended payment plans?

We do not offer extended payment plans. On a strict case-by-case basis, if well-qualified individuals find they do not have funds available for advance payment, our financial manager may evaluate the situation to determine if any other accommodations may be made.

Will your sales people try to sell me services that I don't really want or need?

No.

We don't even staff sales people. Our mission is to inform and assist and to present our information in ways that allow potential clients to readily recognize its value.

We will and do encourage our clients to select the services and programs they believe will provide the greatest benefit to their particular situation; we actually discourage clients from purchasing services we believe go beyond the scope that is most appropriate for their need.

Our programs have been intentionally designed to allow our clients to add additional services or program components at any time, at the end of the day, the end of the month, or the end of the year without any penalty. Simply smart business, we think.

Are your Senior Advisors available to speak at special events?

Yes—in fact, we are passionate about it and it is one of our favorite things to do.
