Introduction: What’s your story? What’s your WHY? Having a clear Personal Brand will help you target your ideal career and stand out from other applicants. My name is Victoria Reeves and coaching clients on how to unearth their unique gifts is what I do. I can also help you craft an incredibly professional Resume, Linked-In Page, Website, Common App Essay or Statement of Purpose. As a Writing Consultant and Creativity/Career Coach, I am PASSIONATE about clear communication. I know from 15+ years of experience that "Words are Powerful"! Content that is carefully curated will convey your message in a succinct way. Conveying who you are, what you have to offer and how you can benefit others will open doors in your academic or professional life. Many of my current clients are North American and International C-Level Executives and students in MA/MS/PhD Programs around the world. We are all in the process of discovering our distinctive skills and how we can share these gifts with the world. I believe you deserve to be happy in both your personal and professional life and that finding the ideal position will make that happen. When we meet, I will bring 100% presence, listening for key words that most effectively reflect who you are and what you have to offer. From these conversations and stories, we will put together language that reflects your Personal Brand and synthesize it into all of your written and verbal communication. In this stimulating and fast-paced climate of sound bytes and overwhelming content, entrepreneurs, employees and college applicants must offer a unique point of view and a compelling voice to stand out from the crowd. Let's work together to clarify your voice. Let's create compelling content and presentation skills that will open doors, get you noticed and propel you on the path to vocational integration (aka the Dream Job)! "We must differentiate or disappear. Successful personal branding is based in authenticity. Being YOU is empowering, energizing and the key to success." -- William Aruda, Founder of Reach Certified Personal Branding I truly enjoy the process of facilitating clear communication and helping others stand out in their respective careers. I love the challenge and artistry involved in crafting powerful content that conveys concrete messaging to a designated audience. 20 years ago, I began developing and implementing Customized English Training for manufacturing/corporate clients in Workforce Development Programs at the City Colleges of Chicago. I truly have a knack for adapting terminology found in any field (business, healthcare, graphic design, education, the arts, manufacturing) into LINKED-IN Summaries, RESUME descriptions and WEB CONTENT and elevator speeches. I love meeting new clients, learning about their personal, educational and professional backgrounds, and creating written and verbal content that will empower their goals. This is a process of storytelling, telling the story of my clients' lives. I write 7 days a week, and I am energized by the process. Helping others find their authentic voice is my true path.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I charge clients by the hour. My appointments are two hours long, whether in person or done remotely. There are no contracts or packages. I am happy to give a general estimate of how long it usually takes to edit a Resume, Linked-in page, Cover Letter. Creating web content, working on Common App Essays/SOP's or improving one's English skills all require vastly different amounts of time, depending on the client's goals, needs and timeline. Each client is unique. You can decide how many sessions you like as we work together.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Our first appointment involves discussion about goals and deadlines, as well as an overview of any documents such as Resumes, Cover Letters, LinkedIn pages, research paper assignments, graduate school declaration of research or dissertations. From there, we begin the process of editing/writing and make an overall plan for sessions moving forward. Some clients work with me 2-3 times a week if they have a project that is under a deadline. Some clients work with me remotely on editing documents, with a combination of Skype/Facetime sessions and me working on academic papers, marketing campaigns or other forms of writing on my own and then reconvening to discuss changes. Many of my long-term, international clients have a "standing appointment" with me once a week as they are C-Level Executives who work with me continuously on their Business English skills, presentations, developing web content, etc. So there is no "typical process" because different clients have different needs. The point is, this is my business 7 days a week, and I am flexible about the consulting/coaching arrangement. We will create a plan that works for you and whatever you are currently working on.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a published author and have been writing professionally for the last 20 years. I have a BA English Composition from Beloit College. I am a TESOL Certified English Instructor. I taught English as a Second Language for the City Colleges of Chicago for 15 years. I also created curriculum and taught very specialized Vocational English/Business English/Accent Reduction Courses for the City Colleges during that same period. I taught English in Japan for 4 years through the JET Program and as a Consultant for many Japanese companies. I have literally coached 1000's of professionals and Bachelors - PhD Level Students on all aspects of their careers including editing/writing all necessary documents, goal setting, navigating job applications and/or the college application process and intensive coaching on the process of successfully capturing their academic/career/life goals.
