Individual Career Services FAQs

What are the costs of your services?

Our core programs start at $1595 for our basic services. In each program we try to customize the career services to meet the needs of the individual so the costs may vary for each individual. Individual considerations for these services that must be factored in are: time, confidentiality, local/regional/national/international, advocacy levels, research and distribution. Career services programs involve work that can take anywhere from 30 Р180 days and beyond, depending on the needs. We estimate the effort it will take to help facilitate your search in a customized way based on your needs as an individual. At the full service level the products and services we offer may start at $4500 and up. We  do on occasion create programs based on a la carte items that we believe would work best for your career needs, so that we can factor in budget limitations and other issues.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards. Cash in USD or checks are also welcome. Visit our Payment Policy page for more information. We are PCI Compliant and take secure online payments.

 

Do you Handle Confidential Career Searches?

Yes. Some career searches that we specialize in occur because a client hires us who is looking for a job while currently employed. We are very sensitive about the needs of executive clients who need confidential consideration during their career search, to avoid jeopardizing their current position. Clients must make the decision as we advice and help them network how much exposure they would like to have through social media or other public platforms.

 

How do you measure success in your program?

Our goal is to put you in a better position to transition and to help you build your brand. Ultimately it is the responsibility of you as the client to take as much ownership of your career search as possible. CareerPro Inc facilitates, advocates, encourages and coaches each individual through this process. We try to help clients find their next worklife mission not just a job. Are you happy in your next role? Are you fitting in to the culture and feel like you are in your worklife misssion? We measure success this way. We also realize that we cannot guarantee x amount of income or x amount of interviews. We can guarantee that we will do what we say we will do and work with you to achieve your career success. We have clients who now refer their children to us today that were not even born when we first helped them. We have returning clients every month from 5, 10, 15 and more years ago. That’s a good measure of success. For more of how we meausre our success view our YouTube and social media channels here (Linkedin, Facebook, Pinterest).

 

Who is a good candidate for your services?

Ideally we work with executives with a proven track record and high integrity but who need confidential assistance in their career search. However, over the last 20 years we have a strong reputation for helping clients of all backgrounds, including: moms returning to the workforce, crisis situations, major career gaps, unusual and difficult searches and young professionals new the workforce. Although our main clientele have established annual career paths of $100k+, our goal is to help those of any age, background, experience or career level.

 

Will you work with me if I only need select services from your programs such as resume writing?

Yes, that is a possibility. We offer a short, complimentary and confidential consultation before any services are considered. On some occasions we feel that clients may not need our more extensive program, but on all occasions we feel you should at least have our professional opinion on what services you may need. If you are a good fit then we will work with you at any level.

 

What is the difference between CareerPro Inc and other career services?

In the 20+ years that we have delivered career services, we have focused on providing customized and clear direction to those seeking employment. Our clients report that they receive a combination of comprehensive help, encouragement, advice, networking and complimentary products when they engage with us. They also feel that the process we use to coach them through these difficult times of transition builds a rapport and relationship that can and has last a career lifetime. That means many of our clients stay in touch and come back even after five, fifteen and even 20+ years. When you join the CareerPro Inc network, you enter a relationship that we believe will last throughout your continuous career growth and success. If that is something you are interested in then you would be considered a good fit for our services. If you are looking for a quick fix, something cheap or a simple transaction then CareerPro Inc may not be the best fit for you.
