We create your entire LinkedIn profile top to bottom including optimizing your profile with specialty keywords, researched ideal groups and even suggested key connections for you to extend invitations to in order to strategically grow and optimize your network. Our average client’s weekly visitor rates triple once we have optimized their profiles! This service also includes a 60-minute coaching audio on LinkedIn and how to use it to network, make inside connections, learn about job opportunities, create thought leader/industry leader status, find contacts, and enhance your career.
- A Custom Website Design
Designed as yourname.com. A powerful tool if you are vetting national or global positions. You’ll receive a 4-page, elegant, custom website which can be password protected. Websites make it easy for decision-makers to quickly learn more about you. Many top industry experts agree that decision-makers are much more likely to visit your website, and done correctly, a website gives you a way to network 24×7. We will provide you with your own website and domain name (we will give you instructions for purchasing your own domain) with NO tacky add-on names or drip marketing (you will love how amazing your website will look). Your site will be hosted with us for $15/month* for as long as you need the website to be live. If you wish to deactivate your site, we will store it for you. *Your $15 hosting fee begins as soon as your website is live.
- Executive Recruiter, Private Equity and Venture Capital Distribution
An exclusive, customized distribution system to thousands of recruiters via email. Unlike many other resume distributors, we don’t copy and paste your resume into the mail. Each resume is attached in Microsoft Word so the formatting is maintained and each letter is custom addressed to the recipient. Typical distributions go to 1,000 to 6,000 targeted recruiters. Through extensive research and proprietary software development, we have amassed a list of more than 33,000 recruiters and 8,000 venture capital/private equity contacts nationwide, including industry leaders Spencer Stuart, Heidrick & Struggles, Boyden World, DHR International, Egon Zehnder, Crist Associates, Korn/Ferry, Russell Reynolds, and Stanton.
- Executive Biography
A professional narrative of your career highlights and accomplishments. Biographies make a powerful addition to an executive jobseeker’s marketing materials. Biographies can also be used for business plans, VC firm submissions, management consulting, and general executive marketing documents.

“Thanks Mary Elizabeth, my email has been very active with acknowledgments of receipt as well as some nice personal notes regarding the depth of my experience. I used your salary negotiating techniques on my NYC interview. The CFO of the company came right at me trying to nail down a comp package 2 hours into the interview. It was good to get my first interview out of the way!”
“Since we last spoke following my distributions, lots of good things have happened. I guess it’s been about two weeks now and I have had over 100 written replies compared to the occasional response when I went at this alone. Those contacts turned into 20 phone calls which have now culminated into 4 real opportunities I am pursuing as part of a formal search: 3 COO opportunities which are nearly a perfect match for what I targeted when we spoke initially, and one CEO opportunity which was the result of some awesome ongoing dialogue that you helped start.“
“I just wanted to say thanks so much for your help with the resumes and the recruiter/private equity distributions. The initial response has been incredible. In less than 48 hours I have 7 appointments. You and your team are wonderful!”
“My interview lasted 3 hours with the venture capital firm. Your coaching from Module #4 was perfect. It was as if you were in the room with me. I remained excited throughout the interview even though I have never raised any capital for a new venture. They saw my enthusiasm and decided that they could teach me the financing business. By the end of the meeting, they outlined three different ways we can work together. Thank you for your incredible insights and being passionate about my success!”
