The Power of “Yes”
You career can’t be left to chance. Yet, almost all are. That’s something probably no one ever told you when you graduated school, when you took your first job, or even now years later when you speak with your professional colleagues. The truth is, most people stumble through their careers with no true target or purpose. Their course of career life (VITAE) is often rudderless; simply drifting towards success or hardship once they take up their chosen occupation. Yes, most careers are left to chance.

Based on Knowledge and Experience
We interact daily with some of the world’s most interesting and dynamic people. And one thing we understand, perhaps better than anyone else, is that the best branded individuals (those with the most compelling résumés and supporting professional materials) are the ones that land jobs, are consistently offered the best opportunities, are seldom out of work long, and tend to make more money over the course of their careers.
In the course of our recruiting we discovered most candidates lacked the knowledge and skill to build their careers and market themselves effectively. Their résumés and other personal brand marketing materials were poorly written and produced. Their professional story was undeveloped. We knew from experience even before they told us their stories why they were being rejected outright in their job search efforts.
On a daily basis, through our dealings, individuals would ask us to help them. Informally, we began writing professionally produced résumés, cover letters and other personal brand marketing materials, and that made all the difference. We would also help them think about their careers in different ways; getting them to assess and to look at themselves more like branded products.
Those requests for assistance became so frequent during and in the wake of the worst years of the great recession, that help offered would easily have taken away from our normal focuses and duties of recruiting. As a result, we established our résumé and career services division (www.sequenceresumes.com) to meet the ever-growing demand of job candidates seeking professional help with their résumés and job hunting efforts.
Today, Sequence is the innovative leader in the career planning services sector. We are especially known for providing job seekers and career minded individuals an exceptional level of professional and personalized service and expertise in career planning, personal branding and marketing. We are highly sought after speakers and hands-on instructors to lead career workshops, networking sessions and résumé clinics for prominent industry professional organizations throughout the United States. Sequence Résumés is an established stand-alone business division offering professional resume writing, career branding and professional development products and services here in the states and internationally.
