Original resume and training and 2 updates for $245,000:
Our client originally came to us for a resume and training to explore the market prior for a new career when considering taking a severance package from a major computer company. He was then earning $140,000 per year.
Our client was prepared to "start over". He accepted he would drop $80,000 per year because he thought the marketplace could not match his current earnings. He was hired by a major computer company at $180,000 per year Ė $100,000 above his expectations, $40,000 above his last salary.
The only discussions, during the interview with the president was their mutual interest in soccer - which was well detailed in the CV (biography)!
Four months later another company, who had originally made him an offer, approached him with a $200,000 package which he accepted. The client did his full CV-biography, his summary 7-page Resume, half of Job Search Training.
We did the original work, plus an update 4 months later, and two years later another update to secure a $260,000 base position with yet another company. At the most recent company, the 62-page CV-biography was duplicated (single sided) by the company and passed to the 4 executives who interviewed him. Three mentioned an item on page 57: his original job when he first came to Canada as a worker in a meat processing plant - commenting on his meteoric rise!
Our client later told us, when he recounted his decision to spend time and money on himself, "Treat yourself yourself expensively when you are preparing - your position and salary are the major motors to your own success and wealth." His recent update and training were in the $1,200 range - with a total over the years of $7,200. A small investment on $260,000 per year!
