CV 

A good CV is your first foot through the door. But sometimes it's difficult to write about yourself.

 

Some people find it challenging to distinguish their unique strengths from generic descriptions (have you ever met anyone that is not 'highly motivated' or 'dedicated' when it comes to a job?), or think that writing about their strengths is 'showing off' (I see you, ladies), or don't really know how to pinpoint what they bring to the table. Others forget to talk about tangible results, figures, and achievements. And some don't really know how to adjust their CVs to each application.

Let me help you with all of that.

LINKEDIN

LinkedIn has become THE premier career website for job seekers and headhunters, especially in Europe and North America. Having a great LinkedIn profile that tells your story is a great way to enhance your CV (and spice it up with just the right amount of personal flair).

 

Your LinkedIn goes beyond being merely an online CV: it's an effective way to build your personal brand and promote your skills to current and future employers, colleagues, clients, friends, and other connections.

Let me help you with making the best out of LinkedIn.

COVER LETTERS

Some positions require a cover letter ('motivation letter'). This helps recruiters create a small yet meaningful threshold of effort. Many applicants mistake a cover letter as a mini-CV and replicate their resume, missing the opportunity to show their fit to the role.

A cover letter should not revolve around you directly. An ideal cover letter is a way to showcase your commercial way of thinking, why you're interested in this particular (1) employer (2) business unit (3) role, and why you believe you're a fit. It's a LOVE LETTER to a company, showing you're the right candidate and that you care. You wouldn't send a love letter to a significant other that's focused all on you, would you?

FINDING YOUR WAY WHEN YOU FEEL STUCK 

Do you want to make a move but you're not sure to which direction? Are you not even certain what you want, what you like, and what's possible? Are you overwelmhed with doubt about yourself, anxeity about the future, or uncertanty about your current role? Are you low on energy, anxseious to start your work week, and not feeling the spark anymore? (or maybe never felt a spark about your job?)

Feeling stuck once in a while is... normal. The human expirience is complex and multifaced, with lots of challanging moments and intersections. Our careers sometimes need rejouvanation, a re-examination, and occasionally even a restart. Been there, done that, and it's much less scary than I thought. Now I'd like to help you, too.

Let me help you get unstuck and figure out just the one right next step.
