Quite often in my line of work, I have people ask me "Why should I hire you?" I love this question because as someone who truly understand the value of a dollar (and loves a good bargain) you just want to know if it's worth the investment.
Much like any service, it's important to trust and value the person that will be providing you assistance. Just as you would research a doctor to assist you in maintaining your health, a mechanic to service your car, or a chef to prepare you exquisite food, you should research and understanding the role of a career consultant and how they can be beneficial to your success and help you advance your career.
Careers consultants provide guidance to people wanting to manage or further their career, change career direction, or assist them if they're not quite sure on what they want. This information is gathered by assessing personal characteristics, skills and interests via one-to-one interviews then providing appropriate help, advice and recommendations based on the information provided. We also offer assistance with job seeking, resumes and cover letter revisions, and applications.
It's important that career consultants have the knowledge and experience to assist you with your future planning so don't be afraid to ask them for their credentials!

I am also a proud member of the Professional Association of Résumé Writers and Career Coaches, The National Résumé Writers' Association, American Psychological Association, National Society of Leadership and Success, and International Association of Women.
Same as when you're hiring a professional to help you fix the other aspects in your life, you want to make sure the person you are working with is qualified and willing to go the extra mile to service your needs and provide you with positive life changes results.
