How do I learn more?
We look forward to being of service to you. To find out more information simply give us a call at (847) 697-2201 x40. Or, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What happened to your formatting/cosmetic service?
We have reworked our service levels and no longer offer a basic, formatting only service. This service has been absorbed into our new service levels but we do not offer it as a stand alone service. While many candidates simply suffer from format problems the service was not popular enough to survive the improvements we have made to our service. Our most popular service prior to our service improvement initiative was Service Level II, which is now called Professional Resume Architecture and is our current basic service.
What is electronic networking and why do you offer consulting services for it?
Electronic networking is a vital way for today's job seekers to connect with potential hiring managers and many savvy recruiters. This area of career networking is just hitting the surface and there are many individuals that do not understand how to best use these resources for their careers and/or social networks.
Our Electronic Networking Consulting Services provides our customers with recruiting industry insight on how these networks are used by recruiters and hiring managers when sourcing candidates for open positions. We work with our customers to design an effective, professional social networking profile, even on traditionally friend-based social networks.
We have a thorough understanding of how these networks function, how to search for information contained within the networks, and how to keep personal information private and get the information you find important noticed. If you're unsure about consulting with us on social networking, don't worry, we offer these services to employers as well through our parent company. We are a part of a leading recruiting firm which gives us the industry knowledge needed to work with companies and job seekers when it comes to electronic networking.
What if I don't find a new job with the resume you created?
