Award-Winning Resume Writing, LinkedIn Optimization, Self-Branding and Career Coaching Services

Iโ€™m here to help professionals, managers, and leaders secure higher paying, higher impacting jobs by working the job search process, with intention and a purpose. Let’s carve out your ideal role so you can make the money (and save the time) your value commands.

The resume is only 25% of a successful job hunt. While I enjoy providing clients with a quick fix resume, LinkedIn, and cover letter (all of the branding materials), what differentiates me is that I implement a weekly program with daily tasks and goals (and homework for me) so my clients donโ€™t have to think and research so much. Let me do the heavy lifting.

The resume is only 25% of a successful job hunt. While I enjoy providing clients with a quick fix resume, LinkedIn, and cover letter (all of the branding materials), what differentiates me is that I implement a weekly program with daily tasks and goals (and homework for me) so my clients donโ€™t have to think and research so much. Let me do the heavy lifting.

Hi! I’m Matt! I’m here to help! I’d love to be your hiking buddy on your career path.

When it comes to your branding materials, that 25% is your way of controlling your narrative of the hiring audience. Your messaging and brand perception on your professional resume or LinkedIn profile have 7 seconds to impress the hiring manager or recruiter. Are you doing that or are you missing out? Hire a professional so you can stop guessing.

Are you tired of having no career direction, or maybe know what you want to do, but don’t know how to get there? Sending out resumes and cover letters and hearing nothing back? Are you frustrated with the job-hunting process and feeling like it’s a shot in the dark? Are you struggling to get interviews? Worried about your mortgage and family, and ready to take the first job that comes along? Maybe you’re dealing with a recent layoff, downsizing, or termination.

We understand that everyone is different, with unique career goals and aspirations. Some people just need a word processing solution like a resume and LinkedIn profile to get started, while others have no idea what they want to do or where to begin. That’s where we come in.

Now, if you think you only need a resume, cover letter, and/or LinkedIn, you can skip this message and check out our quick solution by visiting and heading to the store! But if you’re looking for those supporting marketing documents that are the resume, coverletter, LinkedIn and others, fine-tuned interviewing skills, and a strategic and intentional job hunt with purpose, keep watching.

Now what do most jobseekers do? They post their resume and apply on, and call it a day. We call this spraying and praying. Spraying and praying does not work. You’re not supposed to send out a bunch of resumes with the hopes that the hiring team will identify your brand and potential fit. Control the narrative. Make it known that you are the right fit. Have intention.

By the time your application hits the job board, it’s been through the wringer of HR, and you’re just another candidate in a sea of resumes. You need a methodical strategy in place to plant all the seeds and turn over all the rocks. Don’t “spray and pray.” Be strategic and be intentional during your job search. You need to show your intention, show your value, and niche down to your target audience. Be what they perceive as a solid candidate. We can help you do that.

We understand that job searching can be a daunting process, and that’s why I’m here to help. Whatever your situation may be, I understand the challenges you’re facing and how they can cause worry and frustration.

Don’t leave your job hunt to chance. Invest in yourself and let us guide you through the process. Your livelihood is too important to leave to luck. Let’s work together to make your job hunt a success.

My proprietary Proprietary Pragmatic Get Un-Unemployed Career Transition Program and methodologies have helped thousands of clients like you navigate these challenges and find their dream careers. It is a differentiator from my competitors in our business. I’ve been doing this for over 20 years and started out as a recruiter for over 10 years.

Our process begins by addressing your pain points and concerns, and then developing a personalized plan to help you achieve your career goals. We’ll work with you to identify your strengths, skills, and passions, and then help you craft a compelling self-brand that will attract the attention of potential employers. We’ll also provide you with customized guidance on how to navigate the job search process, from networking to interviews and negotiations.

When you work with us, you can expect to see tangible results, including a quicker job offer or offers, increased confidence during interviews, and a stronger professional network.

MJW Careers specializes in providing resume and LinkedIn profile development, career clarity, job hunting guidance, and self-branding solutions that can help alleviate your concerns.

Our services will help you reach your goals, and we offer a long-term partnership. We’re not just a bandaid to fix this issue once. We want to be an open door and sounding board for you.

Hiring managers and recruiters are busy people, and they don’t have time to sift through hundreds of resumes. One decision-maker might look for one thing a candidate does on his or her resume, and the other decision-maker prefers other things! It’s inconsistent! Staffing is wonky! We need to make sure we’re focusing on not being overly clever, cute, funny, fancy, quirky, or ambiguous. Don’t outsmart the readers! Make it easy for them to understand your message and your value. We want them to contact you at every phone number and email address youโ€™ve listed on your resume, and even a message to your LinkedIn profile. We can help you do that too.

The average job hunt is 2-9 months, but we want yours to be on the front end of that. There’s a lot of good talent on the bench looking for work, and you need to stand out from the crowd.

Our goal for the job hunting process is to turn over all stones and plant lots of seeds with intention. We want to make the process underwhelming for you and the results overwhelming for us together. We know job hunting is exhausting, and we want to make it as easy and stress-free as possible for you.

Why not invest in your livelihood? Time to invest in you.

Your livelihood is at stake, and you can’t afford to waste any more time.

So, if you’re ready to relieve the pain and worries that come with job searching, let me be your Tylenol. After all, your goal is to show the hiring teams why you are their Tylenol!
