54% Learning & Development Leader

Title: Sr. Training Specialist

Situation: Cecilia was working as a Senior Training Specialist for a home loan company. Each quarter, she was given more responsibility, more employees to train, more locations to cover, and difficult subject matter like home mortgage underwriting. She was harried, over-worked and under-paid. Her resume lacked real achievement statements. We expanded the statements for her current responsibilities and added the substantial load she had taken on being a business advisor to top management. We also gave her credit for revamping dozens of courses to include new regulations. Her keywords were upgraded to reflect the higher-level work she was already doing, and the higher-level job she desired. Her 54% income jump came within 2 years of starting her new job.

In her words:"I just celebrated my second anniversary with the company and I’m still really enjoying it! I started with a base plus bonus totaling $115,000 and ended with $131,000. Not bad for 2 years in! Thank you again for helping me get unstuck in my career."
