Are You Not Landing (Enough) Interviews? 
Feeling Unsure About How to Get Your Application Noticed In This Unprecedented Time?

Take Advantage of Our Highly Personalized, 1-on-1 Resume Writing & Personal Branding Service & Boost Your Confidence & Success!

"Hi, I'm Adam Winfield, a seasoned, professional Resume Writer, Cover Letter & LinkedIn Profile Specialist.

Are you struggling to write a resume that enables you to stand out in a crowded and competitive job market?

If so, I have two things to say to you:

#1 – You are not alone!

Writing about yourself can be hard. It’s hard to decide what to include, it’s hard to decide what to omit and it’s very hard to find the right words – words that will help you stand out without making you sound like you are exaggerating your accomplishments.  

#2 – You have definitely come to the right place.

At Careers By Design, we’ve helped thousands of Canadians, including many in the Vancouver area, achieve career success over the past 15 years. We are a full service career coaching, counselling and resume writing provider so we understand how ultra-competitive the job market is now and how essential having the right resume has become to completing a successful job search and landing your dream job.

That’s why we use a targeted accomplishments-based approach that focuses on your best achievements and creates true impact – this is important because the competition for jobs is getting fiercer by the day.

We also work with all career stages: whether you are starting out, looking to move up or looking to switch jobs or careers.

In the last 6 years, through my expert guidance, I personally have helped over 1000+ clients advance their careers, revive stalled job searches and secure highly coveted positions.

If you're in Vancouver and researching an experienced, knowledgeable resume writer to help you, you absolutely need to connect 1-on-1 with the professional you hire.

Choose us & we'll meet face-to-face, not like other companies that work over a messaging platform. All our services include a 45min virtual face-to-face session where I will learn about who you are, and ask you specific questions to dig out those crucial accomplishments and how they're relevant to the job posting you're aiming for.

Book a no-obligation, free phone chat with me & let's talk.  

No matter what career stage you're at or industry, I've done it all.  With my background in journalism and professional training to dig in and ask powerful questions, I will draw out the key accomplishments you need to present to get hired.

Reach out to me and I'll help you get ahead of the competition and poised for career success!

Learn how to advance your career.

Despite all the uncertainty, some industries in Canada are finding that it’s pretty much business as usual – or even better than usual – as the world adjusts to meet the challenges of COVID-19. Here’s an overview of the bright spots in the Canadian job market right now. If you’ve ever dreamed about transitioning your career to one of these stable or booming industries, now might be a good time to make it a reality.

WHY YOU NEED OUR SERVICE

Careers By Design’s Experts Will Solidify Your Brand &
Turn You into the Strongest Candidate for an Open Position!

The truth is we live in a marketing-focused world and in this world to get you noticed a great resume has to be like a great ad – that means:

• It has to sell you.
• It has to let the employer know that if he hires you, he’ll receive certain benefits.
• It has to let the employer know that you have what it takes to succeed in the position.
• It also has to be designed in such a way that it “grabs the attention” of the hiring manager.
• It has to be written in such a way that it motivates the hiring manager to pick up the phone and invite you to an interview.

A big part of what we can do for job seekers is to help them create a brand identity that hiring managers or recruiters will remember.

Again, this can be very difficult to do on your own but an expert third party seeing you with a fresh, outside, objective view may be just what is necessary to create that memorable brand that gets you hired.

We Also Help You Take Full Advantage of LinkedIn & Resume Cover Letters!

If you are having difficulty securing interviews ask yourself this – is your LinkedIn profile attention grabbing or forgettable?  The difference between the two can be the deciding factor as to whether you get invited to interview for that dream job or you never hear anything back.

The truth is having a terrific LinkedIn profile has surged in importance as LinkedIn has become more and more popular among recruiters and hiring managers.

The Savvy Intern reports that 85% of recruiters now go to LinkedIn before looking at any other recruitment tools.Meanwhile, LinkedIn has grown to over 430 million members. In other words, the competition to stand out from the crowd and draw an employer’s attention is fierce.

And not only that, a well-written profile will also help you make important connections and join valuable groups that can ultimately lead to your dream job.

So how do you feel about your profile?Is it making the right impression? Is it generating interest? Is it portraying you in the right light?

If it is NOT, you are putting yourself at a severe disadvantage in today’s job market.

That’s why many employment experts now say the number one thing you can do to improve your job search chances and land that new or better job is to have your LinkedIn profile professionally written.Simply put, your LinkedIn profile is too important to trust to anyone other than a professional.

You may be a great writer but, for instance, here at Careers By Design we have learned from experience how to:

• Optimize your profile for relevant, powerful keywords so that when a recruiter searches for someone with your skills and experience your profile is right there at the top of the list

• Strengthen your personal brand so that you appear ideally qualified for the position you are seeking

• Demonstrate your personality and values so that companies feel you are an ideal fit for their culture

Another area where Careers By Design experts can really help job seekers in Vancouver and other areas is with their cover letters.

It’s easy to take for granted just how important a well-written cover letter is for your job hiring prospects. About half of all HR reps say they won't even read a resume if the candidate hasn't submitted a cover letter. The bottom line is you need an attention-grabbing, well-worded cover letter to get hiring managers to proceed on and view your resume.We can help you with that.
