What makes my coaching better than other coaching services?
With 21 years of military service (enlisted and commissioned), 9 years as a Federal Government GS-15 Hiring Manager, and many years as a Hiring Manager in Corporate America, I have extensive experience in creating and posting hundreds of job announcements, reviewing thousands of resumes, leading hundreds of interviews, and reviewing salary negotiation requests from potential hires. My career coaching expertise has won veterans numerous interviews, higher salaries, and many career promotions.
As a former service member, Federal Government GS-15, and senior corporate manager, I know what employers want to see and hear from applicants and what can make or break a hiring decision.
“As a senior executive with the Department of the Navy, I thought that I would see substantial interest in my background when applying for positions post-retirement. I must have forwarded my resume to dozens of companies with little or no response beyond a basic acknowledgment of receipt. It wasn’t until I was introduced to Bruce and asked for his help with my resume that I was finally able to break the code on highlighting professional attributes that would trigger commercial industry interest. Within two weeks of receiving assistance from Bruce, I was given my first job offer and have received two additional offers since then. What a difference Bruce’s professional resume service has made for me in this challenging job market.”
I am a Certified Federal Career Coach with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), a Certified Executive Career Coach through ACT Government Services, and a Certified Coach, Trainer, and Speaker with the John Maxwell team. I hold a Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) designation with the Professional Association of Resume Writers & Career Coaches™ and I am a member of The National Resume Writers’ Association.
“Bruce, in my last 20 years I have experienced the shoddy and untrue evaluation of my Resume from several of the self-proclaimed resume experts. I have also received varying levels of disinformation from many of these expert sites. When I dealt with Bruce I dealt directly with the person who was assisting me and it did not include the machine-generated review and a lot of fluff. Bruce took a personal interest in my success and spent the time needed to understand me and my skills. The resume was written with collaboration and with great care. That in and of its self was a great pleasure. We are all very busy and we all want results not a lot of hot air. That said if you want to market yourself with effective implementation; and, where you know you will get the results you desire- then use Bruce. There is a lot riding on an effective resume and you need peace of mind and an outcome that is positive, that is what you will get from this service. I know I did. Bruce I really cannot thank you enough for assisting me in getting the job I wanted.”
What makes my coaching distinctly unique?
Just like chem-lights that line a path in the dark, partnering with me makes navigating through the hiring process just as easy. As your coach, I work with you one-on-one to answer your questions and get you over the employment obstacles. I help you in whichever area of the employment process you want or need. Whether it’s transitioning out of the military, getting promoted, job searching, cover letter and resume writing, interview preparation, or salary negotiation, my help gives you an advantage over other applicants. Maybe you are currently in a job and want to advance to the next higher pay grade. Working together will lessen your stress and anxiety and make the journey more efficient and enjoyable.
“It’s nice to know that there are people who take their own personal time to help you achieve your dreams. In this case, I want to acknowledge, for his help, Bruce. Bruce made improvements to my resume and prepared me for my interview. During this process, he was respectful, friendly and very professional. He kept in touch with me before, during and after each interview. I am more than pleased with his treatment, but there was something that gained my full respect and thanks because of the arrangements made to my resume. I received more than 7 official offerings in USAJOBS, two in AVEUCENTRAL and one in CLEARANCE JOBS. I’ve told my family and friends how pleased I was with the deal and the work of Bruce. I’m really grateful to you.”

“For those interested in the quality, accuracy, and attention to detail I recommend Mr. Bruce Benedict to draft a professional Curriculum Vitae (CV) and provide guidance and feedback along the way. Communication is key to Mr. Benedict’s performance as he does not remain austere and aloof from the client but rather engages them in a direct and professional manner and produces quality work in a very timely fashion. It is clear that he has a strong portfolio and he is ready to provide and present examples assuring privacy is met.I asked Mr. Benedict to develop a CV for a colleague of mine with a specialized skill set and he drew from them the questions and answers necessary for him to put a professional narrative together for the interviewer or job seeker to find. If given the opportunity I would work with Mr. Benedict again and have no problem pointing people his way to assist them in their goals.”
