    Andrea's Jump Start Your Job Search program provides in-depth professional knowledge beyond starting a job search. Andrea is very knowledgeable. She equips you with skills that can be taken with you for the rest of your life, which leaves feelings of capability and power. Andrea does not simply relay information. She builds, sculpts, and molds her clients to be prepared to handle any possibility, surprise, or outcome that arises as one searches for a new job or career path.

  • Doug Dickinson, Sr. Desktop Engineer
    Andrea assisted me with rewriting my resume twice now. The first time she completely reconfigured my resume, I had a new job within one month. The second time, she helped me add my new job skills and reword key parts of my resume. I had a new job within three days. She uses her skills as a writer and recruiter to help craft the best resume possible for the job you are applying for. I would definitely use Andrea again for resume writing.

Fun Fact: I can curl my tongue into a flower!

Hello Gorgeous! My name is Andrea Wilson Woods. I am an ICF-certified coach who specializes in career coaching. I created Jump Start Your Job Search because I know how to land jobs. After working over 100+ jobs in 19 careers in nine industries, I have cracked the code on how to find jobs. 

I started helping my friends with their resumes and interviews in the early 2000's. Fast forward to August 2008: I finished my master's degree in writing and the economy tanked. When I started my writing/consulting business, most of my individual clients needed resumes and career counseling. Additionally, I worked as a resume analyst for getinterviews.com. 

If you want to know my history of teaching, acting, dancing, and working as a patient advocate, just ask me. Additionally, you can read My Story or my formal Bio

 

At job interviews, do you bomb the Tell Me About Yourself question?

Fear no more! I help you develop, shape, and write your personal Tell Me About Yourself story. Plus, you practice on camera during your mock interview, and you receive a copy of the recording. I believe it is important for my clients to see themselves on camera so they become aware of how they present themselves. I work with you until you feel confident and secure about nailing the most commonly asked first question during an interview.

    Andrea’s Jump Start Your Job Search VIP Intensive is one of the best investments I’ve made in my career. Being in the process of shifting my career focus, I wanted some support in repackaging myself in a new professional direction. This work with Andrea provided all that and much more. Not only do I have a brand new resume, bio, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, and tell-me-about-yourself story, Andrea also shared tools and ideas that empower me to lead my own search and development from here on.

Frequently Asked Questions

What methods of payment do you take? 

All major credit cards including Mastercard, Visa, and American Express.

Do you offer payment plans? 

Absolutely! We have three types of payment plans.

Do you offer a guarantee?

Not exactly. We only have two guarantees in life: we are born and we will die. That's it. I cannot guarantee success. There are too many factors involved: your profession, your industry, your geographic location, time of year, and most importantly: YOU. You are the singlest biggest fact in determining your success. However, almost all of my clients have landed a job after working with me. Some obtained jobs more quickly than others; some settled for a job that was not quite their dream job. Many landed their exact dream dream jobs using the tools, techniques, and skills they learned in my Jump Start Your Job Search program.

Money BackDo you offer refunds? 

Yes. Unlike most coaching programs, we offer a refund. (We don't call it a guarantee per se.) Our user agreement clearly outlines our strict refund policy.

Are your services tax-deductible?

As of 2018, most job searching activities (e.g., resume writing, career coaching, LinkedIn Premium) will no longer be tax-deductible. 😞 

Speak to your accountant. You will receive a receipt upon payment.

Why should I choose to work with you?

I have worked in nine different industries, and within those industries, I've had about 19 different careers, and easily over 100 jobs. My well-written resumes and cover letters have gotten me in the door without any connections whatsoever! With or without connections (usually without!), I know how to land jobs.

After obtaining my master's degree in writing, I took my knowledge and skills and taught my clients how to obtain their dream jobs — even in a bad economy. Later, I completed a 10-month, ICF-certified coaching program to become an Associate Certified Coach. I'm proud to be one of only three career coaches in Alabama listed in the 2017 and 2018 editions of What Color Is Your Parachute? by bestselling author Richard Bolles.

My motto: "I do not give my clients the fish; I teach them HOW to fish so they will continue to succeed in the future."

My goal: To ensure you have a career that is fulfilling for a lifetime. Whenever you want to change jobs in the future, you will have not only the skills, but you will also know HOW to do it. And more importantly, you will have the confidence to do it.

How do your prices compare to other career coaches?

Great question! Prices vary depending on a coach's experience, expertise, education, and skill set. Let's say you only want a resume because you believe that is the only reason you have not landed your dream job.

  • The average cost for an entry-level resume (someone with 0 – 2 years of professional work experience) is $400 assuming the resume writer is experienced.
  • When I worked for getinterviews.com from 2008 – 2009, they charged a minimum of $695 for entry-level resumes and $850 for executive-level resumes. Adjusted for inflation, the cost today would be $816 and $998 respectively.
  • If you possess 6 – 10 years of professional experience and you pay less than $800 for a resume, that's like buying a 20-year-old polyester coat at a thrift store. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!
  • Every minute you are unemployed is hurting you financially. Download our Salary Loss Tool to calculate your lost wages. If you could find your dream job quicker by investing money in your career, wouldn't it be worth it?

  • Allen Kilgore Jr.
    I committed to the full 8 week course [Jump Start Your Job Search] and Andrea invested in my future. She really pushed me to drill down into what I wanted and tailor my resume and search skills to achieve that goal. It was not easy. No shortcuts. She pushed when needed and pushed back if I tried to cut corners. What I wanted — and what I got — was not a new and different job, but a radical career change. A career change that reflected not my career history, but the path I identified for happiness. I can honestly say that without Andrea’s guidance and support, I would not have been prepared to make the leap I did, nor would I have been prepared to find the perfect career I did. Andrea will set you on the right path to find the career you want. I recommend Andrea Wilson Woods without reservation.

Questions You Should Ask

What type of clients have you coached before?

I have coached clients from the following industries: Advertising, Coaching/Consulting, Commercial Banking, Communications/Electronics, Computer Software, Construction, C-Suite Executives, Dentistry, Design, Education, Engineering, Entertainment, Finance, Foundations/Nonprofits, Graphic Design, Health/Wellness, Healthcare Services, Hedge Funds, Hospitals/Nursing Homes, Human Resources/Recruiting, Internet Technology, Legal, Manufacturing, Marketing, Newspaper/Magazine/Book Publishing, Public Relations, Sales (e.g., Retail, B2B), Social Services, Small Business Owners, and Universities, Colleges & Schools.

I have found the industry doesn't matter so much as the client: YOU determine your success. I vet my clients carefully and only accept people who are willing to invest the energy, time, and yes — money — in their future. You must be committed. I will only invest in your success if you invest in your success. 

Who is your ideal client?

I love working with people who are motivated to pursue their dream jobs either in their current career or in a new career. I have worked equally with men and women though most of my clients have a minimum of five years of professional experience and a bachelor's degree. My ideal client is motivated, driven, resourceful, creative* and coachable.

*Not necessarily artistic, just a creative thinker.

Will I need special computer equipment or software for your program?

No. The live training/Q&A calls take place inside of my Zoom meeting room. A high-speed Internet connection on a laptop or desktop works best, but you can always call in if you need to do so. As for software, you will need to use MS Word and Excel to submit your homework directly from the program, or you can use Google Docs and Sheets to submit links via email. None of my clients have ever needed to buy new hardware or software to participate in my program. 

I see words like gorgeous & lady on this page. Do you allow men in your program?

  1. Men can be gorgeous, too! 😉
  2. And yes, absolutely. I have worked equally with women and men.
  3. If you fit my criteria and I believe you will be successful in my program, I will make you an offer. The first step is to Book a Discovery Call

I love helping STEM women because we need more women in Science, Technology, Engineering & Math. I find many young female STEM professionals get lost in their male-dominated environments. Often, they don't possess enough confidence. Despite being highly educated and incredibly competent, they don't know how to show their achievements on their resume or on LinkedIn. They can't answer the dreaded Tell Me About Yourself question. They don't know how to speak with authority about their accomplishments. (It's not bragging!) And like most women in my program, they do not negotiate their salary. If any of this sounds like you, I recommend three things:
