Would You Like to Win a Professional Resume, Cover Letter, and Interview Prep Session?

You may have already read something about the Pay-It-Forward Reward that Vertical Media Solutions introduced a few weeks back. The concept is simple; gift your friends, family, and loved ones with a professional resume and cover letter this year. Imagine what a new career opportunity would do for someone you care about.

Why am I bringing it up again? Pretty simple, really.

We understand that the holidays are coming up and we want to give back to our community whenever we can. We’re in the business of creating professional resumes and cover letters that attract hiring managers. If you want to learn more about our superior reputation, Google us.

That’s Why We’re Offering Our Own Pay It Forward Reward

Indeed, Vertical Media Solutions will be giving a gift to someone. But not just any gift. More like a package of gifts.

This December, someone will receive not a cover letter, not a resume, not an interview preparation session – but all three services for free.

Yes, a fortunate professional out there will receive a cover letter, resume and a 30-minute interview coaching session, on us. In a nutshell, our own Pay-It-Forward Reward. You’re looking at a $400 value.

For free.

How Do I Sign Up For This?

Call it a contest if you want, call it a ‘drawing’ if you will. Just send a copy of your existing resume to: gift@vmsolu.com

That’s all you need to do.

We want to see what you’re all about. On Christmas Day, we’ll announce the “winner,” and that winner will receive a free updated cover letter, resume and interview preparation service.

Vertical Media Solutions is located in Michigan

We care about our community. We care about our local job market. Your advantage begins with a professional resume and cover letter.

Judging a Book by Its Cover (Letter)

The first thing people see usually will be the dealmaker or breaker of any prospective product or service, hands down. Think about it. Peruse through the shelves of a bookstore and know that 99 times out of 100 you’ll buy a book based off what you see on the cover – and you won’t even have to know what the book is about (or even care about who the author is).

 

Why is that? We’re visual creatures. We make our decisions based on what we see initially.

 

So What Does That Tell You About the Job Market?

 

First impressions are crucial. I’d dare to say that they’re paramount, meaning if you don’t have the first impression down pat, it doesn’t matter how much experience you have, how decorated your resume really is, or how many connections you have.

 

If the employer ends up not liking you somehow, you’re out of the running, plain and simple.

 

Because, again, people often make their decisions by what they initially see.

 

The Importance of the Cover Letter

 

 

That makes the “cover letter” probably the most important document you can present for a job opening and interview. It’s the lead-in to getting an employer interested in you. It’s your main selling piece. The resume simply seals the deal already designed by your cover letter.

 

That’s why you see Vertical Media Solutions offering just the cover letter as part of their portfolio of valuable products.

 

Maybe you already have a well-written resume: good for you! But that cover letter can be a stretch…. It’s a creative document, basically. It’s a creative selling piece. Sometimes those are hard to craft.

 

You won’t find a list of dates, a list of employers, or a list of schools you’ve attended. It’s not an outline. While a resume expertly lists every feature of your work experience neatly for the employer to read, a cover letter details the benefits offered if hired.

 

How can an employer resist? It’s the cover letter that encourages an employer to even want to read that resume. So, in a nutshell, you have to make sure it’s as professionally polished as possible.

 

The Challenge

Vertical Media Solutions | Professional resume services

As I already mentioned: those cover letters can be hard to craft. But with Vertical Media Solutions there to guide you, no cover letter is beyond your reach

 

Ask your professional resume writer to craft your customized cover letter for $99. That’s it.

Vertical Media Solutions Initiates the “Pay-It-Forward” Reward Program

Vertical Media Solutions begins a new service where existing or past clients can purchase a resume, or cover letter, or interview preparation – or any combination of services – for a friend or family member.

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PRLog (Press Release) - Nov 19, 2012 -
In the spirit of the holidays, the premier source of professional resume writing services in Michigan, Vertical Media Solutions, has opened doors to a new way of delivering services to those seeking help in the job market: the “Pay It Forward” reward. It is a gift certificate any current or past client can purchase and then “gift” to someone else in need of an updated resume and cover letter, or even curriculum vitae.

Effectively starting a trend, Vertical Media Solutions has tapped into a crucial way to reach job applicants on a wide scale by essentially “getting everyone involved” to provide the very best in a cover letter and resume, enhancing the job market and paving the way toward success in the economy in the long run.

This initiative will include a graphically designed certificate with a purchase number documented on a database to show that it is a “Pay It Forward” reward. When this reward is then gifted to someone else, the individual only then has to contact Vertical Media Solutions and present the reward with the purchase number listed. From there, Vertical Media Solutions starts work on the project as a gift to the individual, free of charge.

It is considered a reward, or “gift,” specifically because Vertical Media Solutions will also provide a free service along with that reward. In essence, the purchaser does save money by purchasing something as a “reward.” For instance, some Pay it Forward rewards may offer this: a resume with free cover letter, or a resume and cover letter with free social media preparation.

In that way, not only is the purchaser “paying it forward,” but Vertical Media Solutions is as well. In the end, the receiver of the gift wins by not having to pay anything for the services that are provided in the reward.

This is, however, most definitely not just about the holidays; it may be a year-round initiative, allowing Vertical Media Solutions and the company’s clients to continually provide value added services to prospects.

You can check out Vertical Media Solutions to learn more about what they offer at http://vmsolu.com and read their blog at http://vmsolu.net. They are also on Facebook and Twitter.

Pay It Forward in the Job Market!

We need a little bit of a “pay it forward” mentality in this job-seeking arena. Demand can sometimes be high. But the supply? Competitive! Employers aren’t simply looking for candidates to fill a position….

They’re Looking For Value

They’re looking for dependability. They’re not just looking for someone who can do the job; they’re looking for someone who can do it well, better than the rest.

Why? Jobs are precious and job openings are few these days! If employers are going to hire, they’re going to want to see a clear and sure bet in a candidate’s cover letter and resume, presenting true value. Period.

So it’s no surprise that there’s a lot of competition out there. In fact, the more candidates, the more difficult the choice. Employers will be very specific about who they hire. That makes the all-important cover letter and resume even more crucial. And you know what?

You May Have Already Nailed It With a Resume Project From Vertical Media Solutions

You know the value there. We know the job market. We know what employers look for.

That’s why you hired us. And the value’s still there, pushing you to the top of the market and making it known that you’re a hot commodity in your specialized industry. In a nutshell, your resume project is the “gift that keeps on giving”!

Again, though, this doesn’t change the competitiveness of the job market. People out there are still fighting for a chance to be seen by the next big employer. And chances these days are far too slim – unless they’ve got the advantage in a well-crafted cover letter and resume!

That’s Why You Can Pay It Forward Today

With Vertical Media Solutions, you can make it happen for someone. I am sure you know someone – a family member, a friend, or even a laid-off coworker – in need of services to, in simple words, get them up on the horse.

When a loved one loses his or her job, it almost makes you feel like you’ve lost your own job. Consider what happens when your dad walks in the house, looking terrible. Why does he look terrible? He just found out he’s now out of work.

It’s a sad time. And the competitive job market doesn’t make it any easier.

But you can help to change that now.

The Pay It Forward Reward

Vertical Media Solutions is going to make a big difference this holiday season. We know how important it is to spread the word – to let all know that everyone still has value, that everybody can still get a job out there.

So maybe you’ve purchased a resume project from us, and it’s revolutionized your credentials to the point where any employer can’t turn away: do you know someone else who needs help?

A loved one? Maybe your spouse?

I mentioned a “gift that keeps on giving.” Well, I tell you, the next best thing on Christmas to getting that new job (which, let’s be honest here, would be one of the best Christmas presents in the world) is getting an updated cover letter and resume designed to land that new job to take care of the family, put food on the table, pay the bills, take family vacations.

So give the gift that keeps on giving. Purchase a Pay It Forward Reward for a loved one who needs to believe that there’s an advantage out there when looking for a job.

What is the Pay It Forward Reward? It’s essentially a “gift certificate.” You’re giving someone else a chance to receive the reward you are fortunate to own in a dynamite cover letter and custom resume crafted by the professionals at Vertical Media Solutions.

Simply say…. “Pay It Forward” when you speak with us. Lend a hand and help. We’ll do the rest. The person you’re rewarding by paying it forward can contact us at any time with their Reward. It will have a special code and referral directing us to the original purchase details, and we can go right to work.

That’s Our Promise. That’s Our Code of Conduct.

We here at Vertical Media Solutions are in the business of helping the job seeker rise to the top of the employment market. We want to help as many people find their dream job with the tremendous resource of an expertly written cover letter and resume.

There’s not one professional out there who doesn’t need one. In this job market, it’s crucial.

So start today. Give us a call again – and give the gift that keeps on giving! Together let’s help a loved one achieve what you have achieved with the help of an expertly crafted cover letter and resume: the dream job of a lifetime.
