Find My Profession

Find My Profession offers a one-of-a-kind experience that goes far beyond any other career coaching service on this list.

While traditional career coaches will teach you how to find a job, Find My Profession’s Reverse Recruiting service will do the work for you.

This white-glove service will search for jobs on your behalf, apply for you with a customized resume to fit the application, and network with key decision-makers to secure interviews.

The only thing they won’t do is show up to the interview for you. But don’t worry, this service includes interview preparation to make sure you’ll crush any interviews they land you.

PROS

You can save hundreds of hours searching for jobs, filling out applications, customizing your resume, and networking. Finally, you can pay someone to find you a job. Your dedicated Reverse Recruiter will create a personalized strategy to manage all aspects of your job search. Each Reverse Recruiter only works with four clients at a time, providing you with personalized attention and care.

CONS

If you’re looking for a traditional career coach to help you change career paths, this service may not be a good fit. The Reverse Recruiting service is for professionals who know what kind of job they want but don’t have the time or energy to find it on their own. There is also usually a waitlist of about one month.

Excellent service provided

[Reverse Recruiter] is by far the best career finder I have ever had to pleasure to work with. He truly goes above and beyond in everything he does when he works with you, and the results definitely show it. He was professional throughout the entire experience. His attention to detail, overall industry knowledge, and the way he takes care of his clients is best in class. Also, turnaround time and email responses were done very quickly. If you don’t work with [Reverse Recruiter] for your career finder/job search needs, you’re missing out big time! Can’t thank him enough for everything he has done.

Outstanding service

I had the opportunity to work with [Reverse Recruiter], and I must say the experience was excellent. The communication was great, the level of professionalism and effectiveness was very high, from identifying the right jobs to networking with the right people in LinkedIn! I highly recommend this service to anyone in a senior position who is serious about finding a new job. Take it from me, you can not do it better yourself.

Find My Profession review

Working with [Reverse Recruiter] and Find My Profession reminds of the raptures in the film Jurassic Park. They were relentless in all aspects of my job search. I understand that your spouse or others may question the cost but it was worth every penny. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND!

Worth the investment

I used the Find My Profession service to rewrite my resume and to revamp my Linkedin page. I also used the Find My Profession career finder service and worked with [Reverse Recruiter] to help me apply for roles and market my profile to potential employers. [Reverse Recruiter] worked very diligently to ensure that my profile was marketed to top-level executives in my industry and his efforts eventually led to my finding the perfect role which I received a great offer and that I accepted. This is a great service and I believe it is worth the investment for those who are looking to find their next role.

FMP – landed me the job!

From the very beginning of my initial application, it was clear [Reverse Recruiter] was here to help me in the next stages of my career journey. This wasn’t going to be an ordinary job search experience. Based on our enrollment conversation, [Reverse Recruiter] took the lead managing the job search process for me. She asked the right number of questions to build the search criteria specific to my interests (role, industry, location). [Reverse Recruiter] scanned the horizon weekly and staged available opportunities reducing my effort/stress and allowing focus on my personal and family obligations. Upon my giving a prospective position the green light, [Reverse Recruiter] submitted a tailored application on my behalf and followed up with the employer as necessary. Along the way, [Reverse Recruiter] freshened my resume and online profile to take advantage of today’s job search criteria. She also expanded my LinkedIn presence connecting me with dozens of professionals. Above all, [Reverse Recruiter] listened carefully to my evolving needs and adjusted the job search process accordingly. It was as if [Reverse Recruiter] was personally committed to helping me find the right match (which she did!). Depending on your time and energy available, Find My Profession team members can either take full lead on the job search process or can supplement your existing plan. Don’t go it alone.

Great service for busy…

I am so pleased with my experience with [Reverse Recruiter] at FMP. I was looking to change industries, but too busy and overwhelmed with my day-to-day to embark on the journey on my own. No only did he do the heavy lifting with applications, but was a readily available resource in coaching to ensure I nailed interviews and marketed myself in the best way possible. He was helped to give me realistic expectations without short-changing myself or my skills to get the job I wanted. Thanks to him, I was able to secure a great role at my dream company within 6 weeks!

[Reverse Recruiter] was…

[Reverse Recruiter] was hard working and excellent and he directly led to me finding a job in 30 days! It was a pleasure to have him behind the scenes finding opportunities.

Excellent Service!

I started using the Career Finder service on July 16th, and a month later on August 16th, I was offered a job! I really appreciated [Reverse Recruiter’s] guidance and expertise through this process. It had been 18 years since I’d had to job search, and had no idea where to start. While the price was high, I thought if this service shortened my job search by a few months, then it would be worth it. [Reverse Recruiter] was very skilled in networking, helping me find positions that were of interest, but weren’t necessarily ones I would have looked for myself, applying, (and outside his job description), dealing with my emotions as I got rejections, and became frustrated trying to figure out what I was searching for. The position I landed was something that I probably wouldn’t have thought to look at myself. I appreciate how fast I was able to find something that I feel like will be a great fit, and I would highly recommend [Reverse Recruiter] and this service.
