“Candidates often consider their previous jobs and achievements sufficient evidence for a company to want to hire them. But that’s not enough these days,” said Ms. Van Valkenburgh. “What companies want to know is what value you will bring to the company to help it succeed. Surprisingly, even candidates with impressive business credentials can have a hard time identifying what it is that makes them so special. And that is what a Value Proposition is all about. Our most successful clients often credit the process of developing and articulating their Value Proposition as critical in their company’s decision to make a job offer.”

Twitter Certified Career Strategist Joins Elite Group

twitter-certified-career-strategist_stamford-connecticutStamford Sept. 5, 2010 – When Linda Van Valkenburgh looked for even better ways to serve career-minded professionals, She decided to pursue world-class training through The Academies.

With reports of as much as a 10-to-1 jobseekers-to-jobs ratio in today's economy, job seekers have a new ally on the job hunt. Van Valkenburgh, Stamford’s leading job search strategist and  Owner and Executive Career Coach for My Executive Career Coach, LLC, took time from her business to join an elite group of career professionals learning the latest on job searching via social media, specifically via Twitter.

Author Susan Whitcomb, nationally known leader in the careers industry and President of The Academies, Inc., and Chandlee Bryan, co-authors with Deb Dib of The Twitter Job Search Guide (JIST), facilitated the program—a comprehensive curriculum that reveals how Twitter is dramatically changing the ways that jobseekers find and identify positions and how they are landing jobs in a tough job market. Van Valkenburgh passed the tests to earn the Twitter Certified Career Strategist credential, an excellent addition to her 20 years of business experience and work with job seekers.

To help people win and succeed in fully satisfying careers, Van Valkenburgh now has even more powerful tools, including knowledge of:

- The secrets others have used to leverage Twitter to land job offers
- Building a personal brand, professional presence, and community on Twitter
- Using tools like TweetMyJOBS.com to be the first to hear about job openings
- Finding and connecting with previously inaccessible company insiders, recruiters, and other influential networking contacts.

“I can offer so much more than the sum of what I learned,” said Van Valkenburgh. “And, I have an expanded circle of colleagues who share my dedication to partnering with people who want to manage meaningful careers and move forward faster.

“I’m excited about showing people how to use Twitter to turbo charge their job search and advance their careers—from people just entering the work force, to those who want a better job, to very senior managers determined to make a greater contribution.”

Van Valkenburgh’s company is My Executive Career Coach, LLC. Van Valkenburgh may be reached at info@MyExecutiveCareerCoach. www.MyExecutiveCareerCoach.com and 203.323.9977.
