When I re-entered the job market after eight years of working at home I didn’t know where to start. The Want Ads in the local papers had virtually nothing listed. My contacts had dwindled in the time that I had been out of the loop. The internet was the obvious place to start, but I didn’t know how or where to begin.
I went to Jeannette for some help with my resume. What she gave me were the tools to build a brand new career.
She rewrote my resume, adding skills and experience I didn’t know were relevant, deleting dead wood that made it seem dated and out of touch. She introduced me to Linked In, and helped me build a series of relevant and helpful relationships. She showed me how to navigate all of the job-searching networks, Monster was no longer a mystery. She helped me figure out exactly what I wanted, what I was qualified for, and where to focus my efforts. She tailored individual cover letters for each position I applied for, she would tweek my resume as needed. And when I got the calls and emails from HR, (and believe me, without her help, I wasn’t getting any calls,) she walked me through the interview process. She knew what employers were going to ask, she knew what they needed to hear for answers. Jeannette advised me on what to wear, how to negotiate for the right salary, when to follow up, when to give up, and when to follow up again.
She made me aware of all that I had to offer in today’s job market, helped me narrow down just what I wanted from a position, and then she went to work with me to make sure I was successful.
I am currently employed with the company of my dreams doing a job I never would have even applied for. I’ve gotten two promotions in six months and I’m home each nights to help the kids with their homework. I have dental insurance, vacation days, and most of all, I’m happy to go to work in the morning.
A friend of mine put me in touch with Jeannette de Beauvoir. I will be thanking that friend, and Ms. de Beauvoir for the rest of my life.
