Job Wrangler

So, you need a job.
Maybe you’ve lost your job, maybe you want a new job but you can’t find the energy to look for one because your current job is taking all your energy. Either way, I can help.

What I do.
It starts with a conversation. You’ll tell me about your situation, what you do, what you’re looking for and send over your resume. I will take a look and tell you if I think I can be of help. You’ll decide if you want to proceed.

Then I take your resume and make it clean, modern and well-designed. If you need help with content, I can do that as well. Either way, you’ll end up with a compelling presentation of your awesomeness. I can also make sure that your LinkedIn profile looks spiffy. The final step is an online presence – your resume at your own domain.

I use a standardized format. Want to see it? Here’s my husband’s resume. Here’s a client website.

You can stop there if want, or we can continue.

Next, you send me links to the jobs you want to apply for and I go to work. I sit down, reads the job posting, review your resume and write a cover letter that explains why you are someone the company should be interested in getting to know. The cover letter is not done using a template, but rather created anew each time and geared towards the content and the tone of the job description.

When I’m done, I will send you the letter and you can make any changes you want and mark the letter as approved. Once approved, I turn it into a PDF file.

You can take the cover letter and apply for the job yourself or you can have me apply for you. When I apply for you I will go online, fill out all the forms and submit your cover letter and resume on your behalf.

And that’s how it works.

How much does it cost?
There’s an initial $300 retainer which covers getting to know you, updating your resume, creating a website, creating a separate job-hunt email address if you want one, a review of your LinkedIn page and two hours of job hunting services (cover letters and or applications). After that, services are billed weekly at $60 an hour.

Most of my clients are seeking work with salaries over $75k, many over $100k. I generally find the higher the salary, the longer the process takes, but I’ve yet to work with someone who has not ended up with a job. I’m up to twelve as of fall 2018.

How to get started.
If you’re interested in working with me, please send me an email at katie@boucebackstudios.com with a copy of your resume and a little about yourself and what kind of work you’re looking for. We can then schedule a time to talk.

Before you go.
I follow the tenets and advice of Allison Green at Ask A Manager. I suggest her site and books for both practical advice and moral support in the job hunting process.  You can do it all yourself using her and her site as a resource.
