Dear UTech Jamaica Alumni

  • Would it help to boost your confidence, if you were sure you had a well crafted, value adding resume and/or LinkedIn Profile, which clearly and impressively answers the No. 1 question in a recruiter’s mind “What value will this candidate add to my organization?”
  • Would you feel more hopeful if you had someone to help you develop a job search or career management strategy so you could get on with your life…with better fit between who you are and what you do, plus better compensation-focus-joy-peace?
  • Would it mean a lot to you to be able to handle this…wait…period [wait to find a job, or wait to find a better job] without feeling fearful, angry, anxious and uncertain?
