Day-to-day, I work with and assist top performers, whether they have five years, or twenty-five years experience, some of my clients are highly skilled and talented recent graduates, but all of them are experts at what they do.
Clients want either a personal marketing strategy / branding, or they know specifically where they want to go and who they need to talk to, or they want to work together to discover and establish target positions and opportunities.
I provide executive coaching to assist in strategically positioning them in front of great opportunities.
This involves packaging and coaching to over-prepare them for meetings with decision-makers and hiring managers. This packaging includes a cover letter, professional resume, and a strong LinkedIn profile. We will together rewrite the resume making it more focused on your strengths. Hiring managers and decision makers want to see significant accomplishments as it pertains to money, people, operations and other critical responsibilities. Secondly, we make sure the LinkedIn profile strongly mirrors the resume. Then we will take your LinkedIn profile, and by integrating third-party software, increase your connections, views/visibility and ranking.
LinkedIn is the primary tool used by corporate recruiters to look for and review candidates.
Networking is the other critical area that I specialize in. I fully engage my vast business and personal network for the benefit of my clients. We will work together to establish a thin and strong network using my network, expanding your network, and opening new networking areas.
Eighty percent of opportunities, jobs and consulting, come through a thin connection (friend or acquaintance of someone in your network) or directly through your network.
I charge an upfront fee and an hourly rate for a weekly call/meeting/session. The hourly includes the additional support from me and my staff each week.
Part master networker, part entrepreneur and part coach;
working together we can shorten the process, increasing opportunities and compensation.
Hope you have a great day.
I am a transitioning US Military officer with very little experience in the business world- Bob Jones walked me through the process of resume prep, networking, interviewing, and negotiating. Result, in 5 weeks I landed a six figure with a growing tech firm. His mentorship, insights, and wisdom were invaluable to me during this process. Jon V.
Robert helped me rewrite my resume and then coached me through my entire transition process. I now have my dream job. I found myself quoting him during the interview in my own words and I am convinced that is what got me the position. Ironically, there was one time when I went against his advice, which turned out to be the one time I put this opportunity most at risk. The man knows what he is talking about! Bruce H.
I had been out of the job market for a while and was floundering a bit. Bob responded quickly and helped me out a ton. We re-wrote some bits of my resume and he coached me on how to present myself. The best part was the quick turnaround. Part of it was the market, but Bob really got my search kicked up and within a few weeks I had an offer at a full grade higher than I was at previously. Eventually I got to choose between 3 offers and found a home and new career path. I highly recommend. John L.
Bob Jones served as a career coach for me. He assisted with job hunting by connecting me with many high-level contacts to either interview with or learn more about my industry. Bob also helped me understand how to create powerful resumes and strong professional profiles (such as on LinkedIn). I have grown as a professional because of my meetings with Bob and his advice and I attribute my job successes to him. I recommend him and will personally continue to use his services in the future. Professional, respectful, timely, enjoyable. in other words, excellent. Caleb M.
Bob is not what you would traditionally expect from a career coach. Is he very professional? Yes. Very connected? Yes. Very knowledgeable? Yes. A bit crazy? For sure. A little wild and unorthodox? Yep. What sets him apart is his authentic personality and that he is sincerely motivated by success...my success. He understands that his success depends on mine and he's done everything he can to show/teach/position me for health and success. I'd recommend him to anyone looking to make a career transition...but buckle up and be prepared to go from 0 to 60 much faster than your safe little sedan has taken you before. Josh H.
