Your IT Career Path
Welcome! Your Job Search Is About to Become …
Simplified. Targeted. Certain.
Dear Technical Leader,
Making a career move in today’s job market is often uncertain. It can penalize you for things you often can’t control … for being too “old,” too experienced, too qualified, too “technical,” too expensive. It might not reward you for this cert or that title, at least not like you thought it would. And many companies struggle with their talent retention efforts, to put it lightly.
Needless to say, your future technical career path may be fraught with more obstacles than perhaps you’ve experienced up to this point.
But here’s the good news:
My name is Stephen Van Vreede, and I overcome uncertainty everyday for my senior-level client members as an Executive Technical Résumé Writer and Job Search Strategist, as well as a Technical Career Adviser to several news/industry outlets, like TechRepublic, Dice, the Linux Foundation, and CIO.com. I’m also a co-author with business development guru, Brian Tracy, of UNCOMMON (out June 11, 2015).
Together with my team of writers and concierge job search agent, we find that from established “techies” (15+ years), to those who lead technical and engineering initiatives through project/program management, to strategy visionaries like CIOs and VPs, they all have one thing in common, most likely the same thing you’re looking for:
To feel certain when you conduct your next career move that you are ready for the market and well positioned to meet its demands (not to hope you are or think you are but to have a level-headed, frank understanding of the market and your place in it).
From your technical resume portfolio and personal branding to your job search launch to your next internal promotion, we cover all the bases to create a unified strategy for how to be successful in this job market that makes 1) the transition simpler for you, 2) targeted toward your specific market, and 3) certain that you are well prepared to meet whatever the hiring process throws your way.
“What surprised me most was how unexpectedly excited and motivated I was when I saw the revised version for the first time. Now, I have a great marketing platform that will do a much better job of presenting me, highlighting my strengths, and delivering my message to potential employers. A resume is a living document, and now I’ve made it past the ‘resurrection’ and am in a great position to be able to tweak and fine-tune it for different opportunities and markets,” D. Thorburn-Gundlach, Enterprise Architect, Atlanta, GA
“I really didn’t think I needed job search ‘help’. After all, I had been in the industry for 25 years. Shouldn’t I know everything there is to know about searching for a job by now? But the truth was, even though I might be established in my field, I’m not an expert on the job market. I rather do the job than look for one. And when I started working with ITtechExec, I realized just how little I actually knew about today’s market. It was nice not to have to ‘go it alone’,” A. Smith, Aerospace Engineer, Columbus, OH
