Arnie Fertig's Summary

Arnie Fertig - contact info:
CEO & Founder

US News & World Report "On Careers" blogger. I provide nuts & bolts coaching for job seekers: Resume, Networking, LinkedIn & Interviewing,

I'm passionate about helping people get jobs and move their career forward. I love coaching my clients all throughout the U.S.

I craft compelling resumes LinkedIn profiles, develop personal branding statements, mentor clients about social media, networking & interviewing techniques; and coach clients to negotiate for the largest possible compensation.

Extensive coaching, public speaking experience.


1. CRAFT RESUMES which demonstrate successes, achievements, capacity for ongoing professional growth, and an ability to add value to the next employer.


3. TEACH LINKEDIN SKILLS for effective job hunting.

4. ENHANCE NETWORKING SKILLS - who to meet, how to meet them, and how to leverage each interaction.

5. PREPARE FOR INTERVIEWS - by demonstrating value and learning how to respond to the tough questions.

6. REVEAL how to negotiate for the best possible compensation packages.

I understand how job seekers are evaluated by HR and hiring managers. I understand why some candidates succeed, while others with equally solid qualifications are passed over... and I coach my clients to work the process to their advantage.

* If you are dissatisfied in your current job, but unsure how to find a better opportunity that will provide greater compensation, security, and professional fulfillment I can guide you.

* If you are hunting for a job without success, I can help you to take a step back, look at what you have been doing, and refocus your efforts.

To each client, I bring my knowledge of how to most effectively hunt, target, and land a job that will provide you with the dignity of work and the opportunity for professional advancement.


* Creating individualized Job Hunt Strategies * Creating effective oral and written messaging and Personal Branding *
Creating achievement based resumes, social media and in person networking skills.
