I can assist you in providing you the best …

If you are a job seeker, looking for new career possibilities or promotions:

  1. You need your resume rewritten to the newer “21st century” job search standards for the digital age versus the old paper-copy standards from “20th century” practices.
  2. You want advice and knowledge from an expert who knows the ‘other side of the recruiting wall,’ and who understands the digital parameters used by modern-day recruiters and headhunters to use that knowledge to get your credentials as the ‘top of the queue’ for consideration.
  3. You want a polished resume that ‘shows’ versus ‘tells’ what your capability versus listing tired ‘same-old’ job description(s) – with that important top four inches that tells it all for quick glance, decision-making by the hiring managers and recruiters.
  4. You need help in ensuring that perfect resume is ‘out there’ on the Internet for not only slow and lazy recruiters, but also for technically savvy recruiters who use Boolean search strings to find perfect candidates in open and deep web searches

“As a transitioning Military member I asked for Dr. Boyer’s professional assistance with my resume. She came highly recommended and when I spoke with her on the phone I had no doubt that her skill set was going to work to my advantage. I was truly amazed with the results that she produced and with the expeditious nature in which she produced them. Since completing her contractual obligation with me she has still continued to provide outstanding advice on a number of occasions. If you need assistance in any of the services that she provides I highly recommend that you give her a call and let her walk you through her process…you will not regret putting her to work for you.”

“I hired Dr. Boyer for a “Phase 1″ review and re-write of my resume. After going through this process with her I realized that I should have hired someone like her BEFORE I started looking for a job rather than later. Dr. Boyer’s expertise and responsiveness was fantastic! As a transitioning military officer, I really liked her familiarity with military and government related acronyms, this helped her know what questions to ask me about my background and how to get my story out so that an unfamiliar reader would be able to understand my military background.  Bottom line: my resume stands alone as a readable and understandable document which I used to redo my LinkedIn profile with. I’ve recommended her to several colleagues and will continue to do so as I meet more transitioning military officers.”

If you are a small business and are ready for the next step:

  1. You own a small business but can’t yet afford to budget for a full-time Human Resources Practitioner on staff, but know you need the expertise to avoid potential liabilities, and require government mandated compliance.
  2. You are aware social media is important for public relations for business, paid paper media advertising doesn’t yet seem to be puling in customers you need, or your small business marketing strategy doesn’t seem to be working right now.
  3. You need ideas for expanding your business into new areas or to streamline the processes currently in place to develop a leaner policy and practice paradigm.
  4. We provide consulting to small businesses in the commercial arena, as well as  dynamically growing 8(a) set-aside government contracting and defense companies, in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area (national consulting offered, also).

“I took a little time in thinking about what to say about how amazed I am about Ms. Boyer, because I was floored by the simple and practical “common sense” career and networking advice she gave me. Without too much detail, I am almost embarrassed to admit someone whose teeth were cut a long time ago (and without her mother’s knowledge) on old IRC/ICQ and Telnet platforms for reaching people and is very comfortable in virtual environments even needed to ask of her what I did. Thank you for keeping everything just as plain as it needs to be!  I am also quite impressed with her personal attention. Anyone with so many hats and links I’m sure must be flooded with questions, invites and solicitations, but she took the time (far more prompt that I was may I say!) and really cleared up a host of questions I had over a brief email exchange. I completely respect and value anyone whose gift is demystifying information and takes pride in doing so. Ms. Boyer – you have my gratitude!!

“I have known Dawn Boyer for over two years and she is one of the most active personas in the Hampton Roads, Virginia when it comes to business networking, business development, not to mention her high-profile skills for Resume Writing, LinkedIn training, and small business development – Business Plan Writing, Human Resources Management consulting, and Social Media Marketing development, planning, and management.  She has a great demeanor which focuses on ‘listening’ to the other party, then her creative mind goes to work on ideas generated by the partner in the conversation, as well as ideas she can offer based on her 13+ years as a professional business owner and manager …  If you are in business and need help getting bigger and better – CALL HER!

“Dawn is an excellent speaker. She has an incredible ability to connect with her audience. Dawn excels at leading interactive presentations that meet the needs of her audience. She is professional, caring, and humorous in her presentations. If you have the chance take one of her classes or offer her a speaking engagement, you will not be disappointed.”

If you are in business development and are unsure about who to use or what to use for social media for business marketing and/or personal branding for marketing yourself as a Subject Matter Expert (for career search or small business): 

  1. Everyone is on social media nowadays – but very few folks understand how to use it.  You may be using it daily yourself, but perhaps you are not quite sure about it’s power or how to get the best ROI for your time.
  2. There is a difference between Facebook social media use for certain types of business versus just keeping up with friends and family.  The use of LinkedIn social media as a method to individually brand oneself as a subject matter expert in their career field and networking across state, national, and international borders in a global business world makes you a part of the community of knowledge. This  resource is one to which you can turn for advice, knowledge, communications, business development, and career networking.
  3. Many who use social media might not know it’s full potential for developing business for their small companies or gaining connections or access to others to network for information, business, or jobs.
  4. D. Boyer Consulting offers 1) training on the use of LinkedIn to individuals or groups and 2) management of LinkedIn social media to those needing or wanting to increase their visibility to recruiters and headhunters for potential career position considerations.

I would highly recommend her services to someone wanting to improve their LinkedIn profile to either take her course or hire her as a consultant.”
