It is my pleasure to write this recommendation for Dan. He is a wonderful person and a tremendous coach. He has a unique approach where he pushes you to dig deep inside yourself and understand your unique skill-set and value proposition that you can bring to an organization to have a meaningful impact. His knowledge and expertise are unmatched and in a normal conversation itself, he will share so many tips and tricks that are hard to find in any book or website. I found his guidance extremely helpful in building upon my strengths, identifying areas that need improvement, and how to network effectively. He is very thorough, positive, and always available to help. I am fortunate to work with him and look forward to many more years of partnership ahead.

It has been a genuine pleasure to work with Dan! He provides support and guidance, and his unique approach has helped me gain a new perspective on the job search and on network development. He is great to talk to, always open, positive, and very friendly! Recently he started organizing the Meet Ups, which I found to be valuable moments to learn from him, from others, and to exchange experiences. I truly appreciate what Dan does and highly recommend working with him!

So much of the job search journey was new to me - both from a technological standpoint (LinkedIn function, etc) and in terms of effective communication throughout the process. Dan put me together and continues to support me along each step of the way. The whole thing is a lot less daunting with Dan in my corner. I highly recommend his services!

What are coaching sessions like?

There are a couple of ways you can make the most out of working with a Career Coach.

      1. Identify your goals and areas to focus on with your coach
      2. Keep a journal so you can track your progress
      3. Be open to exploration and change
      4. Be prepared to be challenged
      5. Expect change

The goal of each working session is to make your LinkedIn profile stand out in a crowd.  That’s how you get noticed, not by a resume.  Those days are over.  Most folks believe they will get a job new from having a great resume; hence, they seek out a resume writer.  Sadly,  resume writers  are not equipped to know enough about your industry and how to showcase your achievements and outcomes.  Even more importantly, they lack the know-how to get you noticed by hiring managers.  That’s where a good career coach and recruiter come into play.

 

Each program typically consists of a series of one-on-one sessions that usually last 30 to 60 minutes each.  At fairwindslogix, we don’t limit the amount of time per day, week, or month. Our time is dependent on your needs and we adjust as needed.   During a job search how much time and how frequently you need to work with your coach changes during the initial assessment, job search, interview preparation, offer negotiation, etc.

Absolutely!  The purpose of a consultation is so we can determine together if coaching can provide value to you.  It is important to have a trusting relationship and good chemistry for success.

      1. Come with an open mind to position yourself for success
      2. Set appropriate expectations
      3. Open up and be honest with yourself
      4. Focus on your goals
      5. Make it a true partnership
      6. Set the right atmosphere

 Our clients win more interviews, get higher base salaries and have a greater number of job opportunities to  choose from for the jobs they want.  You can learn about our pricing here. What price can you put on investing in your career?

Executive resume writer services can range from $300-3,000,  depending on their process, how many years of experience that your resume writer or career coach has, how many hours are required for writing a resume, and your work history.  Though a resume is important, a resume writer is just a one-time hit.  A more effective tactic for your job search is working with a career coach over a period of time to:

  1. Tweak your LinkedIn Profile so you stand out to recruiters and potential employers
  2. Teach you Interview Preparation 
  3. Help you practice with Mock Interviews
  4. Execute a Tactical Job Search
  5. Help you with Career Planning

and more. 

Prices increase with higher-level professional resume requests.  The downside of outsourcing your resume to a writer is that you don’t go through the process of articulating your value-add with a professional that can provide guidance on how to showcase your achievements and outcomes.  Working through the process with a Career Coach yields the best results.
