FAQs

We help professionals in transition find work they love through career coaching, resume writing and recruiting.

Our goal is to help you Get Clear, Get Noticed and Get Hired.

FAQs:

Q: WHAT’S YOUR SUCCESS RATE?

A: As of July 2020, our Excel spreadsheet tells us we have a 94% success rate at getting people hired in 44.3 days from date of purchase to date where they notify us they got hired! Some of our clients decided to start a business as a result of our coaching instead of going the traditional job route, so we can’t honestly reflect those as a “get hired” success rate.

Q: WHICH INDUSTRIES ARE YOU FAMILIAR WITH?

A: Banking, finance, real estate, sales, military, nonprofit, ministry, automobile, healthcare, IT, hardware, software, biomed, education, chemical engineering, construction, oil and gas, data science, government, project management, process improvement, retail, etc.

Q: WHICH COMPANIES HAVE YOU PLACED YOUR CLIENTS?

A: Our clients have landed roles at Charles Schwab, Southwest Airlines, USAA, AT&T, Baylor Scott & White, Amazon, Chase, Varidesk, Aerotek, HP, Government, Starbucks, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, NTT Data, Dell, T-mobile, MetaGrowth Ventures, Aramark, etc.

Q: HAVE YOU HELPED MILITARY MEMBERS TRANSITION INTO CIVILIAN CAREERS?

A: When Neil was in the Air National Guard, he helped 50+ members in three different Wings (ACC and AMC) transition successfully to civilian careers (before Hiring Heroes and Military OneSource were available). He helped dozens of soldiers communicate their Army Brigade and Battalion acronyms into civilian English to get them hired too! Let’s put your DD214 or NG22 to work for you!

Q: AREN’T YOU MORE EXPENSIVE THAN MOST RESUME WRITERS?

A: If you’re looking at cost as the only deciding factor in this decision, well, yes. However, the old adage “we get what we pay for” is really true in this industry. As Career Upgraders, we work with clients to effectively market themselves:

  • ON PAPER (resume, cover letters, thank you letters),
  • ONLINE (LinkedIn profile updates), and
  • IN PERSON (interview coaching).

We go the EXTRA MILE and advocate by pitching to recruiters and hiring managers on your behalf. As you can see, we do far more than simply reformat a list of your accomplishments in a cookie-cutter template. Our Raise the Roof clients typically see an ROI of over 3,750% year over year for a one-time investment. Who wouldn’t want to take a one time investment of $4,000 and in under two months turn it into $150,000 every year?
