What of the resume. For most professionals, the resume is often a quickly done just before the application. Sometimes its the same resume spammed to thousands of employers. And you cant blame them really. Most times they are professionals in their own fields, say IT, engineering, HR, Finance, name it but they are not resume writers. They are not skills or human resources marketers. No wonder no call ever comes. But not with everyone. Career Pitch (firstname.lastname@example.org ) headed by Mr. Charles Adhola has started a very targeted marketing and product placement specifically targeting professional skills. The company works closely with the professional and creates a customized CV and cover letter directly and accurately targeted at the exact job.
In fact they go further and try to bring out the whole person, market both the obvious and the hidden attributes. What the company would need now and what they would benefit from and which the professionals personality and traning provides.
The whole thing actually includes Resume Review and Cover Letter Designs; Interview Drills/Preparations; Career Coaching; and design of relevant Career documents (application for salary review, promotions, conflict arbitration etc). Mr. Adhola even has two columns on Daily Nation - Get It Right on DN2 on Monday and Ask Charles on Friday.
In my view its just what the present busy and result focused professional needs for his career advancement. We seek professional help for such simple stuff as changing oil in a car, how much more do we need an expert to change careers and accelerate growth?!
