A personal approach to career services

My name is Clay Cerny, and I have been a Resume Writer and Career Coach in Chicago since 2001. Over that time, I have helped more than 3,500 clients from all backgrounds – executives to new graduates, career changers to professionals who have only worked in one industry – who are looking to take the next step forward in their career.

I opened AAA Targeted Writing and Coaching Services in 2004 to offer a personalized approach to career management. Over the last decade, I have worked with each client to create resumes and job search strategies that match his or her unique career goals.

My clients cover a wide spectrum of professions and industries. I listen carefully to understand each individual’s goals and ask questions to uncover the strengths that employers are looking for. Whatever service is needed, I work as a partner with each client to identify and emphasize the knowledge, skills, and abilities that lead to career success.

Why should you work with me? Rather than offer packages or discount prices, I want to provide a service that meets your current and long term goals. I offer a free consultation where you can get to know me and how I can help. We can meet in person or by phone.

Please call me at 773-907-8660 to set up a time to start the process.

Resume Writing
& Cover Letters

Resume Writing

Unlike resume builders that ask you to fill out a survey, I take the time to interview you to learn about your unique strengths and career goals. I also work with you to understand what your next employer will expect. Through this process, we produce a resume that highlights your qualifications and achievements. Many clients have said that these meetings gave them confidence during job interviews.

Interview Preparation

A good resume will help you get an interview. However, you will never receive a job offer if you don’t have good interviewing skills. Most job seekers I’ve met approach interviewing the wrong way. They think of job interviews as a test, something they can “ace.” Too often this approach leads to scripted answers, which cause stiff, stuttering performances during interviews.

Career Coaching

Some coaches work according to systems and ask every client to do the same thing. My theory of coaching is based on a belief that no two people are alike. Moreover, the opportunity or challenge you are facing that this point in your career is unique and needs to be addressed with a custom solution. I begin every coaching relationship with a free consultation. In that meeting, we work together to determine what you need and how I can help.
