What else is “out there” for you?
What are your realistic career options, ones that you will enjoy, are qualified for, and will pay you the income needed to support your lifestyle. We can tell you.
If you are relying on classifieds, recruiters and old fashioned networking, you are missing out on the 80% of the positions that are in the hidden job market. Our Success System(tm) features little-known but highly effective techniques to shorten a search.
A key to the System is our powerful “Event” concept, which shows you how to find jobs before they are listed with classifieds or recruiters.
Name one thing — just one thing — that you offer to potential employers that your competitors don’t? It’s not an easy question to answer. But it is essential. If you cannot compellingly and convincingly answer the “why should I hire you instead of someone else?” question, you lose.
We will give you a brand strategy that captures your unique value and helps
you break way from the crowd of other competitors.
At last! Someone who can do some of the most annoying and time consuming aspects of a job search for you. You don’t need to waste your time scanning job sites, writing to recruiters and looking for job leads. We can do that for you.
Our Job Search Made Easy contacts and connections program can introduce you to head hunters, hiring managers, venture capital companies and more. Let us be your marketing agent!
If your job search is not getting you where you want to go, it’s likely you don’t have a good plan for reaching your destination … a new and better job.
Our MAP(tm) marketing action plan process will give you a clear strategy and
the tactics you need for running an efficient and successful job search. Our
expert coaches know all of the tricks of the trade, and will use their knowledge to guide you through your campaign and into a new job. Want a new job? Just follow our MAP.

I think you did a very thorough job preparing me. I went into the interview, saw what they needed. I could read between the lines. I did what you said. I did not go in there looking for a job, I went in as someone who could solve their problems. I had a nice presentation about how I could make them money and save them money. It was a different approach. I picked it up from your [job search strategies] webinar. It was like you were there talking me through it.
I wanted to let you both know the good news. With the updated resume and cover letter that you helped me to prepare, I was able to find a full-time position as an Investigator working in White Plains. My role thus far involves performing due diligence on subject companies and individuals and then writing reports based on my findings. The company is attempting to do more work with Brazilian clients so my Portuguese language skills will allow me to play a significant role. So far the job is going well. It is very different from anything I’ve done up to this point but it requires me to use my research and analysis skills which is what I was most looking to do. I wanted to thank you both for all of your hard work on my behalf. You both helped me to think critically about what I wanted to do and I was able to market myself in the most advantageous way possible due to your advice. Thank you!
Thank you for your help. One hour with you and I got off my rear end and found a new position. You are very good at what you do!
Bruce, I was happy to send her [a referral] your way. Your process was a tremendous help to me, even if I flaked out on the job search portion with you. Luckily it didn’t take that long for me to find something. Ha. It’s a great job. I’m very happy and have a great quality of life. Still scratching out some territory and dealing with the internal politics but that is to be expected. Believe it or not I only met her [the referral] once for lunch. We have a mutual friend who set it up, thinking I could provide some advice since I transitioned out. Apparently I was a lot more helpful than expected and I told her you were worth the expense. A headhunter wants a round peg in a round hole. You carve out a new shape for lawyers. Enjoy your summer. FYI, the new job has Fridays off in the summer. It’s a great gig. Be well.
The Career Strategies process is working! I have an interview lined up already for an agency that needs someone to work its insurance defense cases, then I received another call that same day from a [major carrier] and they interviewed me over the phone. They asked all the stuff we had prepared for, and I slam dunked it. I am meeting with them next week.
I felt absolutely helpless because I submitted my resume to so many potential employers and either didn’t get a bite or was ultimately rejected. I was also certain that I wanted to get out of law but wasn’t sure how to go about doing so, or even whether that was the right career decision for me. I knew even before coming to Career Strategies that I was a valuable asset to a company, but I now have a greater recognition of exactly what I do that imparts such value. I believe that I even feel more validated now in my personal life … Just the resume-recrafting services alone are worth it … I wish I could tell more lawyers who feel chained to their current job duties or profession that there is a resource available to help them.
