There are times in your life when you just need to look at yourself differently and reframe your value proposition in the marketplace. Jan, through the [axr] Career Optimiser Program gave me, my cv, my LinkedIn profile and my value proposition more than just a lick of paint. It’s polished. It’s sharp. It’s professional.

I strongly recommend working with Jan to help you create your career strategy, shape your personal brand or refresh your online presence and career collateral. Alongside that, you will work with someone who cares and can offer you all the insights from her vast experience in recruitment.
