Questions about our resume process?
Your resume gets you noticed by hiring managers exponentially faster and typically resides in the top 5% of the pile.
Once you're branded well and. your marketing collateral has been developed (resume & LinkedIn profile)...
...we'll strategically aim you for your targeted roles and salary.
An authentic personal brand can make a lasting impact and drive ROI.
As our research has shown, a corporate brand is not enough today. People are overloaded with information and are searching for meaning which is why connecting with a leader who has something real to say, makes all of the difference in the world.
And unfortunately, the intelligent people who often have the ability to make the most impact, aren't comfortable being in front of a camera or telling their story. Look at all of the positivity and pushback Brené Brown had when giving her first Ted Talk. It is not easy to be in the spotlight.
This is why it is that much more important to find your authentic voice when leading others. At Ascend5, we support leaders to develop their own personal brands that serve their mission in their work. It becomes the law of attraction where others want to rally around you to help you see your mission through.
We can develop an infographic to showcase your proven track record and leadership abilities...
This helps paint the transformation you can make for other companies.
