"Joe provided excellent service in terms of LinkedIn profile update and LinkedIn coaching service. He provided good coaching advice and direction about how to optimize LinkedIn connections. I definitely would recommend his services to others!" – MS
If you are like 95% of my clients seeking employment today, you need a LinkedIn profile and must assume it is your "first impression" to potential employers – not your resume, nor your cover letter. That's right, your LinkedIn.
At right is a small screen grab of my own LinkedIn profile. Please feel free to connect with me.
Why is LinkedIn so important for job seekers? Because it is THE place online where recruiters and/or hiring managers search to not only find candidates, but also to screen candidates they call – before an interview.
So if your profile does not represent you at your A+ best, hire me to write your LinkedIn profile for you.
Much like my resume and cover letter services, I offer my LinkedIn profile writing services as part of a "bundled purchase." However, if all you need is your LinkedIn profile done, I can certainly write your profile. If you are a newbie to LinkedIn itself and have never used it before, I can also coach you on how to use the tool. Regardless of your situation, let's setup a free consultation so I can help you. Click my calendar to setup a day/time convenient for you.
If this is a standout alone order, requiring only a LinkedIn writing only purchase, especially a RUSH, please contact me asap.
If this is the first page you are visiting on my site, below, please find information on my writing process. If you've already reviewed my resume and/or cover letter writing pages, the below is a repeat of what I described on that page.
My difference is results. You can review client testimonials (below) and on my Google, Yelp, or LinkedIn pages. Want to talk to any of my clients? Contact me at 858-531-7128 or via email and I am happy to put you in touch.
MY UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE
Unlike a lot of my competitors, I’m not just a writer. Sure, I write resumes, cover letters, thank you letters, LinkedIn profiles and more. Yet at its core, I'm first and foremost an accomplished career marketing expert – because a resume (and everything associated with your job search) is marketing. So before any writing begins, there must be a realistic marketing strategy because if the telephone isn’t ringing requesting interviews, that’s unsuccessful marketing, which is not why you hired me! I am also a great storyteller. I capture the readers attention within the first 10 to 30 seconds so the reader feels too guilty not to call you for an interview!
MY FOUR-STEP WRITING PROCESS AND HOW WE'LL WORK TOGETHER
Step 1 – Setting up Free Telephone Consultation I work by telephone appointment. You can pick a specific day and time best for you based on my calendar.
Alternatively, you may call me anytime at 858-531-7128 or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. If not using the calendar, please let me know some specific day/time windows good for you. I am based in San Diego. If you are currently working and would like to speak before or after business hours, or on weekends, I am happy to accommodate. Just let me know. In advance of the consultation, if you have an existing resume and/or LinkedIn profile, please email to me. If you don’t, that’s ok, too. You may also email me some links to jobs that are of interest to you.
Step 2 – Discussion During Free Telephone Consultation
During the consultation, I’ll be able to learn more about goals and you can ask me any questions you have. Once we’ve determined the services you need, I’ll provide you with a price quote and a timetable for completion. My rates are considered moderate compared to my competitors. This quote will include all editing and telephone and email communications until you are satisfied with the final documents. Most orders can be completed with three to five business days, or less. If you require RUSH service, please let me know asap.
Step 3 – Getting to work: Strategy and Content Collection Call
Prior to writing, we’ll schedule a telephone appointment and have a strategy session. This is a vitally important step that separates me from a lot of other writers (many of whom are not career coaches).
You will find many writers don't offer telephone service whatsoever and instead have you "fill out a form" to collect content. This is counter-productive. Aren't they supposed to be working for you? I offer personalized service. I’ll collect the content I need to achieve your goals and write the initial draft.
Step 4 – Review
We’ll discuss the initial draft within 24 to 48 hours of our strategy call. In virtually all cases, most clients have minor edits during this call, so the remainder of the service can be completed without scheduling another phone call. However, if more calls are required, that's no problem.
LINKEDIN PROFILE WRITING TESTIMONIALS
"I went on LinkedIn and found someone I knew and told them I was looking for a job. And then a few days later my friend called me and said, 'stop looking for a job' because he hired me! I got the job with more salary and all benefits. Thank God and thank you." – HH
"I chose Joe to speak before a group of job seekers about how to enhance the content on their LinkedIn profile. Joe exceeded my expectations. He provided great, specific examples of what to do – and what not do – using actual LinkedIn profiles as examples; highlighting the strengths and pitfalls of each. Joe’s delivery style was fun, entertaining and interactive. He kept the audience completely engaged throughout his 45-minute presentation by providing attendees (who volunteered) with a live critique of their LinkedIn profile without using a PowerPoint presentation or lecture from a podium. Instead, his critique of individual LinkedIn profiles was applicable to all attendees and made his overall presentation all the more engaging. Joe is very well versed in his craft, is an excellent presenter and was able to immediately connect with the audience! I would highly recommend Joe for any speaking opportunities and for those looking for resume support." – CM
"I have hired Joe over the years to support me with my career questions, including for coaching, resumes and strategy. Joe is truly exceptional and gets results, plus he is affordable and completes high quality work quickly. I consider myself a talented and gifted writer and marketer, but as many of us can attest, it can be very hard to write a resume or cover letter or LinkedIn profile about ourselves and our careers. Joe's experience working directly with a lot of senior level leaders in tech and having been a hiring manager himself before he started his business, he knows what it takes to persuade on paper and during interviews. He has a really unique ability to focus on what's critical to stand out from the competition. Thanks as always Joe!" – KS
"I hired Joe to write my resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile and also help me prepare for interviews. Being an HR Professional who recruits everyone assumed this process would be really easy for me. However, it’s just the opposite because I questioned everything about my resume with the wrong point of view it made it difficult for me to finalize. He really helped me with my strategy to promote myself and focusing on where I wanted my career to go. The documents he wrote definitely helped me get better interviews and land an amazing job. He was also accessible to ask questions and worked with me to make edits, including on some tight deadlines. He also helped me craft the right answers to interview questions that brought out my leadership skills. Joe was professional from start to finish. I will continue to use his services throughout my career. I have also referred him to colleges and they too had positive reviews with his services and landed an amazing job within weeks of putting their resume on the market. I highly recommend his services! – NM
"I recently took Joe’s LinkedIn class. It was excellent! Four hours of mostly new helpful tips I’d never heard before about using all the tools on your LinkedIn to improve your profile, plus how to leverage your connections. Joe definitely knows his stuff. Learned a lot of unique tricks I was unfamiliar with. He walked us through all tabs on LinkedIn and explained the value of each in a very logical and practical way so they made sense to the students. Joe taught in a very easy to understand fashion. He would answer student questions and often pause to make sure everyone in the room was learning and retaining the information. I even summarized my notes and sent them over to my daughter, as she is in the middle of an intense job search. Great course, highly recommended!" – DS
"I am writing this to highly recommend Joe Connor! Few things about Joe I like. 1. He takes the time to listen and get to know what you need. 2. He is responsive when you have follow up questions. 3. His prices are affordable given the work he puts in for you. 4. Most importantly, he knows what he is doing! He has gotten positive results for me. So I have hired him multiple times for his advice and to write multiple documents for my job search. I trust him, he delivers. That's why I am writing this recommendation! You can't go wrong with Joe!" – TP
