Leeza Byers, aka: The Queen of Rapid Employment
Specialty: I enjoy working with women who are serious about having a career they love – that best matches their strengths and interests – and are ready to find their IDEAL job fast, stand out from other job seekers, and get more interviews, so that they don’t stay unemployed a minute longer than they have to be.
Approach: Leeza is the creator of the COURAGEOUS JOB SEEKER BOOT CAMPTM that gets job seekers employed in 8-12 weeks (some even do it in 3-8 weeks); which is less than half the national average of 39-54 weeks it takes to find a new job in today’s tough job market. Her clients say she really cares and takes the time “…to get to know me and my career goals so she could craft a resume that highlights what made me special as an employee.” And “Her easy coaching style and passion for helping others was evident from the start of working together.”

Specialty: My specialty is creating a resume that rises to the top of the pile by focusing on the accomplishments, impact and differentiators of a candidate. Every step of my process is designed to separate my client from the rest of the pack. Employers are begging candidates to give them better, more compelling information…and that’s what we do! We create resumes that start conversations between you and your target employer.
Approach: My approach is very personalized and my philosophy is “No Wimps Allowed!”. This is the most difficult job market that this country has ever seen, so the old rules to resume writing and searching for a job no longer apply. You can’t conduct a job search the way you did twenty years ago and expect better results. Everyone who works with us gets more than a resume; they receive a ton of expert support and resources that other resume writers don’t even know exist.
