Do you, like so many professionals, struggle with the following:
- Send out your executive resume with little or no response?
- Are unsure if your resume clearly speaks to your target market?
- Find it frustrating to communicate your skills without feeling that you are bragging?
- Know your resume falls short of selling your skills and abilities, but don't know what to do about it?
- Want to change industries or qualify for a bigger position/title, but are unclear how to frame your resume to accurately position yourself for maximum market leverage?
- Are unclear what to say when asked to give examples of your strengths and achievements?
I am an Internationally Certified Master Resume Writer, Advanced Resume Writer, award-winning job search coach, and top-selling author of career books and guides. Formerly, I was the President of The LYNN Group, a highly successful executive recruiting firm. I would like to show you how a small investment in yourself and your career can result in landing quality interviews, formidable salary increases, bigger and better titles, and more fulfilling job roles.
"Mary Elizabeth, using the executive resume you designed for me, I went from a SVP of Operations to landing a COO role with a premier, $2B+ specialty food company. I also secured a $100k+ salary increase and an amazing benefit package. This position is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the US and my wife and I couldn’t be happier. I have been referring you to others every chance I get!"
- Darren T., Chief Operating Officer
"I was having a tough time landing interviews for posted jobs at the VP- and C-level in Silicon Valley, California. Since I was a career technologist with a couple of home-run hits, I was flabbergasted ... till I read Mark Elizabeth Bradford's book titled The NEW Executive Job Search. Her examples of what to expect using the classic methods of finding a job matched my experience 100%. Then, Mary Elizabeth and her colleagues rewrote my resume following their process. The feedback from my colleagues and potential employers was amazing: we went from "nice resume" to "fantastic format and what an amazing resume." I landed a dream job at nearly $400k, a 30% premium over my previous jobs. In addition, I received a healthy chunk of stock options that could provide another life-changing experience. Thank you, Mary Elizabeth, for reawakening my confidence and showing me the way."
- Harold Y., Chief Technology Officer
"A resume represents that critical outer layer of professional 'packaging' around one’s career. Having a professionally designed executive resume provided me with the added confidence of having a solid document that accurately communicates my true value to an organization. Having this polished ammunition gave me great peace of mind during my confidential search process. Within 6 months of vetting opportunities, I landed a great executive role in an outstanding Fortune 250 company, with a 40% increase in compensation. Dream job: check. Compensation: check. The unlimited opportunity that lies ahead: priceless."
- Martha B., Senior Vice President, Fortune 250 Technology Corporation
"As a VIP Platinum client I received excellent support during my transition and secured a higher title with a fast growth company with a very bright future, a $65k increase in compensation with significant bonus potential. I felt incredibly prepared during the negations and this all happened within 90 days – thank you! I was also able to successfully transition out of the industry I was in, which was another goal of mine."
- Chris F., Chief Operating Officer
"I had been sending my resume out with ZERO response for 6 months before you 'talked me into' investing in your professional resume package. In the first week of submitting my new resume to the SAME companies I had previously sent my resume to – I landed 3 interviews and I presently have an offer on the table for nearly double my previous salary. That is a $70,000 pay increase and 5000% ROI on my investment in myself and my career. Awesome!"
- Russel B., Construction Executive, Nashville, TN
"After working with Mary Elizabeth, I secured a position that met my goals and increased my bonus structure over 80%. Mary Elizabeth is not only an expert career coach, she is also a person with high integrity, compassion and very motivational.”
- Charles K., Chief Financial Officer, St. Louis, MO
Not only did Mary Elizabeth design a resume for me that has landed me multiple interviews for C-level positions, in my most recent position her negotiation techniques helped me secure substantially MORE than what was originally offered!"
- John K., COO, Toronto, Canada
