About Career Resume Consulting

Job Search Consulting Services That Deliver Results

Career Resume Consulting is the only executive career development consulting firm in the United States – and globally –  that helps job seeking professionals land their ideal positions and be paid what they’re worth. We will also stay with you until you start your next position, no matter how long it takes (and we even put that in writing).

If you’re like most successful professionals in an active career search at an executive, highly-skilled or senior level, this may be the first time you’ve had to look for a new job in years. The job seeking methods that were effective last decade are now obsolete, and if you don’t have a solid plan to finding a high paying position quickly, it’s time to consider professional assistance in your search. A majority of our clients making $84K to $1.9M make tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands more than what they were making before, and always in a job that gives them the challenge that they relish and makes them excited to go to work every morning.

You get a better job.
Much faster than doing it alone.
With a comp package that you can be proud of.

I’m Tammy Kabell, and I am internationally recognized for saving my job seeking clients months of searching and getting them paid what they are worth – and if you are in the Kansas City area, my team and I can meet with you personally at our office. If you are located throughout the U.S. or abroad, we would be happy to meet by Skype or phone. My team and I have an unparalleled success record in executive career searching, using a professional branding model and highly personalized strategy, coaching and support. Our clients have landed top positions at Microsoft, Rolls Royce, and Sprint, just to name a few – though many of our clients find great success in the current job market with small to medium-sized businesses that are also willing to pay them what they’re worth.

I invite you to browse this website for detailed information on how to boost the effectiveness of your career search. And be sure to pick up a free copy of my manual, “Job Search Manual for Six Figure Professionals” by clicking here.

When you are ready to have a conversation with me about how we can further your career development and propel your search forward, take this brief online survey and a member of my team will contact you to schedule a free initial consultation in person or over the phone.

A Boutique Executive Search Firm

I do consider my company a “boutique career service”, as I am at the point in my career where I can be choosey as to whom I take on as clients. My effectiveness comes from being the best of both worlds – the best practices training from the largest and most established executive search firm in the industry, coupled with the individualized attention of a small business and my expertise. It is only because of my controlled growth that I am able to offer this level of personal service to every one of my clients. This has been the main key to my success. I take on 3-4 clients a month and work with 8-12 clients at any given time.

I am an industry thought leader who is continuously evolving my techniques, shifting my process and my writing style to meet the needs of the present market and each individual client. In my experienced hands, you are assured you won’t get a novice with little training, an outdated resume writer or career consultant that has not changed job search techniques in 10 years. The advantages of working with a true expert in a small business is your instruction and support will be built upon the successes of my past clients, as I constantly incorporate what has worked for my clients and discard those strategies that have become outdated.

I do have the support of a small team of additional experts: two well-trained and highly skilled personal coaches, one specialist in Social Media Marketing (to build your Online Presence), and a business intelligence research specialist team of professionals (to supply you with leads to un-posted position) who also provides administrative support.

With unemployment hovering at 5.5% and the “broad unemployment rate” at nearly 14%, these numbers don’t tell the true picture of the current job market. In reality, it is estimated that 40 million people are actively seeking new employment in the United States today. Therefore, it is absolutely essential that as an executive, senior level or highly-skilled professional your resume makes you irresistible to hiring managers and set you apart from the crowd. The document needs to highlight the skills you can bring to any position and minimize any liabilities that would keep you from getting an interview.

You need a resume and personal branding strategy that really conveys to an employer what you bring to a position and define you the way YOU want to be perceived – not just stating where you’ve been and what you’ve done. You need to communicate your story. Below are several examples of my executive “Results Resume” which has been presented to clients and in turn, ended up landing those clients interviews and meetings with key decision makers at a prospective employer in literally a few weeks of being presented with their new resume.

Is This You?

At Career Resume Consulting, my team and I work with job seeking professionals who have either made $100K+ or are ready to make this in their next position, and have a strong desire to take control of their career search. Most of my clients are executives, senior level or highly-skilled professionals that are secure in their ability to make a difference for their next employer, but are unsure how to navigate the current job market.

This may include people with great success in Sales & Business Development, Operations, IT, HR, Marketing, Accounting and Finance, but also people with career paths specific to Engineering, Legal, Project Management and Client Services. In my nine+ years of experience, there are few career paths I have not encountered; I’ve been successful with all of them.

I equally serve employed people ready to make a move up and unemployed individuals looking for their next career challenge. My strategies are particularly effective for entrepreneurs and business owners who decide to leave their own businesses and pursue high level leadership positions with other companies. About 40-50% of my clients are in the Kansas City area, with the remainder located throughout the United States.

Are any of these statements true for you?
“I just got laid off or I see the writing on the wall with my current employer, and I haven’t had to look for a job in many years. I know the job market is completely different than when I last had to look for a new position, and I don’t even know where to begin. I don’t want to waste my time with activities that won’t get me any results.”
“I realize my resume doesn’t accurately reflect what I can do for my next employer. But even beyond that, I’m not finding access to enough openings, and don’t know how to get my resume in front of decision makers.”
“I’ve been unemployed for several months, and I realize what I’ve been doing to look for a job just isn’t working. Instead of continuing to bang my head against the wall, I’m now considering professional assistance in my search.”
“I need to change industries or geographic locations, and I don’t have the network I’ve relied on in the past to find positions. Or I have other obstacles in my search, like age, long-term unemployment or many years in only one industry, and I don’t have strategies in place to overcome these.”
“I’ve invested in a professional resume or executive search services in the past, but I still haven’t found a job. It’s completely frustrating, but I refuse to become just a sad statistic.”
“My goal is to find a position with a high level of responsibility with a company that is a good fit for me, and that will pay me what I’m worth. But I don’t have a solid plan to achieve that!”

If any of the above statements ring true for you, then you might be a good fit for Your Six Figure Solution executive search program or my Executive Branding and Results Resume services.

Our Most Successful Clients

As the owner of Career Resume Consulting, I only take on clients that have a high probability of quick success. On the flip side, if we develop a working relationship, you can be sure I have faith in your abilities to land a job quickly.

In my experience, you will be one of my most successful clients if:
  • You have a clear focus of the position you want next or at least a solid direction.
  • You have an extreme and continued motivation to leave your present situation.
  • You have the confidence in yourself to invest both time and money in your career and executive search.
  • You have an open mind to instruction that might typically be viewed as counter-intuitive.
  • You have a track record of taking direction and really running with it, and exceeding expectations every time.
  • You have spent your career delivering quality work for your employer. Everything you have done in every job is your very best effort, without exception. A strong commitment to excellence and continual improvement in everything you do is a personal mission for you. You strive to be one of the best in your field.
  • You have a strong record of making a contribution to each place you have worked. It’s not all about the money; you take pride in a job well done.

Though my clients usually range from 50-64 years of age, making six figures to high six figures,and a few into the seven figures, those are not mandatory descriptors, and if the traits listed above are present, early success is still likely.

The client that secures a new position most quickly is someone who has a strong history of taking action and is highly motivated to take action on a daily basis; all they need is expert instruction and guidance on how to do it.

Now that you know the types of clients my team and I work with, the challenges we help them overcome and what our clients need to ensure their success, I invite you to learn about how we work with executive search clients.
