Is it worth it to pay for your resume to be re-done multiple times?
18 months ago when I got serious about finding a new job I hired someone that came recommended by a neighbor. I paid about $500 for the resume, cover letter and reference sheet. Since then I have had 5 interviews. I have applied to well over 100 jobs, I am a director level currently. I had my resume reviewed by someone at my college career office (we have lifetime career support) and they said it was fine.
I am also not getting any recruiters reaching out on LinkedIN. My resume is not posted but my availability is turned on to recruiters.
I need to get a job sooner rather than later, my company has already gone through one round of layoffs and another is definitely coming.
I am considering hiring a career coach because I am stuck, I am clearly not getting calls, there are a limited number of jobs in my field even in the major metropolitan area I live in but I feel like something is missing. How do you determine who is a good coach or the right fit? The price range seems to be all over the place with some charging as little as $75/hr ala carte and others charging $6-10K for their package.
I have been in operations/administration within the real estate and construction world for my entire career, real estate, construction and workplace strategy planning.
