Introduction: With over 20 years’ experience consulting as a Career Coach and an operations HR Consultant, my expertise has helped hundreds of individuals and businesses: RÉSUMÉ REVIEW, UPDATE, DEVELOPMENT Getting to the interview is competitive—especially with technology deciding who progresses to the next step and who doesn’t. Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS technology) decide whose resume gets flagged for the next step and those that do not. Do you really want to leave this to chance? REVIEW: Take advantage of my one-time written review only of your resume for $25. I’ll provide you with a brief written summary of whether ATS will parse or analyze your resume efficiently or not based on your resume format and content. The summary will provide you with recommendations to correct or change your resume. If you provide me with a specific job ad, I’ll be able to provide input about your resume content as it relates to the job ad. For $80, I'll provide you with a more detailed video review of your resume, highlighting areas to change. UPDATE/DEVELOP: Want to update your resume and simplify it? If you’ve been in the workforce for: 2 years or less, I’ll update your resume to an ATS-friendly format for $125 3-10 years, updates into an ATS-friendly format for $225 10+ years and C-level resume updates are provided at $325 Note: For all of the above updates, if you’ve previously paid me for a written review or video review of your resume, I’ll discount the cost of updating your resume by $25. Don’t have a resume? Let’s work together. If you’ll complete a simple questionnaire to cover your work, background, skills, education, I’ll apply the rates above to create your resume. Provide me with a specific job ad, and I’ll tailor your resume to that ad. SOCIAL MEDIA REVIEW/UPDATE Make no mistake, savvy employers check out prospective hires on LinkedIn or other social media/job sites. Do you want to leave to chance getting the competitive edge for a job? If you’re not on LinkedIn, if your profile or online presence is lacking in some way, if your resume isn’t uploaded to a job board, then you’re helping the competition to the job you want. I’ll help you present yourself and your resume to get noticed, and I’ll share with you how to ‘work it’ on social media sites. Rates (require a usable resume to work from): One-time written summary review only of one social media site (e.g., LinkedIn): $25 2 years or less: Update your LinkedIn OR 1 job board profile for $80 3-10 years, Update for $150 10+ years and C-level updates for $225 CAREER COACHING Interviews: Are you getting interviews, but not getting the job? Do you have a major interview coming up and need to prepare for it? Are you getting phone screen interviews, but not getting to the next step? Are you a bit rusty or need a confidence boost to feel confident in the interview process? Send me a job ad, and I’ll coach and rehearse you in a targeted interview. No job ad? We can rehearse a generic interview using your resume. Rates: $100/session (90 minutes), discounts available for multiple sessions. Career Coaching: Are you new to the workforce? Are you changing careers? Are you returning to the workforce? Do you wonder if you’re in the right career? Do you need to develop communication or other skills to help you be more effective on the job? Do you need to develop confidence? My flexible method of career coaching means we collaborate on what you want to accomplish, and then work together to help you define your career path based on your preferences. Or we’ll work together to help you develop or obtain the skills and expertise you need for your current job and/or future growth aspirations. Rates: $100/hour (discounts available for confirmed multiple sessions) HR CONSULTANT/RECRUITER (to Businesses/Employers): Are you a small or medium-sized business, and you don’t have the budget for full-time experienced senior HR support and management? Don’t have the budget to pay 20%, 30% recruiting fees? - Recruiting - Streamline business processes - Onboarding new staff - Develop or update employee handbook or policy procedure manual Most of these tasks and other HR-related business tasks generally aren’t full-time. As an experienced HR consultant, I can help you get these critical tasks done for much less than a full-time employee or a recruiting agency. Hourly Rate: $125 (Example: compared to thousands of dollars paid to recruiting agencies who charge a percentage of an employee base salary, an hourly rate can help keep your budget in tact.) Retainer rate: 10 hours/month: $100/hour 15 hours/month: $ 90/hour Contact me to work out pricing for special projects or ongoing-but-intermittent services.

Linda has the same background as myself and I instantly felt connected. She helped and encouraged me at the last minute(literally a last minute issue) and the outcome was great. I will be partnering with Linda for coaching sessions.

Linda is the most incredible person you will ever meet. Calm yet powerful. Subtle yet strong. She got me out of a literal rut as I kept on dwelling over things I could never change. She is very experienced and exactly knows where you are and what the gap is between what you need and where you are. No only that, when I’m doubt, she will hand hold you bridge the gap.

Linda is absolutely amazing. I needed career guidance and interview training during my job hunt in the US. As a foreigner, it can be tough to translate all my skills and expertise in a clear pitch. Linda helped me focus on higher roles to apply for, reviewed my resume and LinkedIn profile, trained me for both phone and in-person interviews, and coached me on how to show the value of my experiences in a new country. Her own international job hunting experience was extremely helpful. She is also very responsive and highly attentive to detail. I received great tips on how to present myself (including posture, talking, accent, cadence, etc) and even gave me the confidence boost I needed to go after my dream (yet achievable) role as a director. Thank you, Linda!
Cameron Associates HR Consultant & Career Coach's reply
Hanna, thank you. It's a pleasure to work with you. I'm looking forward to the email re: the Director role you really, truly are well-suited for. And well-done you for the subject area you focus in. You show we can call make a difference.
