Dawn D. Boyer, Ph.D. is one of the most versatile people I know! I had the pleasure of attending one of her LinkedIn classes several years ago and she so impressed me that I hired her recently to conduct my social media management.

Her knowledge of social media, her background and experience in business (as a business owner and providing mentoring via SBA SCORE), as well as her skills at writing (she writes, edits, and helps other publish their books), make her the absolutely perfect person for conducting and completing social media tasks for my business. What she has done in the first month for my social media is incredible – completed and set up LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Google Business Places platforms for my personal as well as business pages. She is a font of information about how to conduct ‘organic’ social media responsibilities.

Because Dr. Boyer has a Ph.D., she has also been through multiple ethics training events, and I know I can trust her to complete my social media actions with professional conduct, an intelligent manner, and she has a wonderful sense of humor that adds to the mix.

    Dr. Dawn Boyer provides remarkable services for professionals that are valuable career investments. Dr. Boyer was working on my resume almost immediately after purchasing Resume Writing Stages 1 and 2. She knew what questions to ask and how to transform everything a resume should have into a document employers want to see. The finished product is amazing! After that, I purchased the LinkedIn Profile Review, Analysis, & Enrichment, and received feedback with helpful tips provided in less than 48 hours. Dr. Boyer was delightful to work with while answering all of my questions promptly and effectively. Therefore, I recommend Dr. Boyer for her expertise in resume writing, LinkedIn review, and career expertise.

    Dawn possesses such a wealth of knowledge in so many different areas, it’s almost difficult to begin addressing them all. She has been very helpful with tips and information as to how best to expand my business, and has me thinking outside the box in ways that have really paid off. She is also an excellent speaker and educator, and conducts classes on everything from using social media profitably to job-search specifics. I highly recommend Dawn to anyone who is in need of human resources or job search expertise.

    Her PowerBall class re. LinkedIn:

    No wonder Dawn is called the “LinkedIn Queen”—her knowledge of this social networking site is astonishing. Her PowerBall class is one I would recommend to every job seeker or entrepreneur. Her delivery is superb, the information is fascinating— great tips on increasing your visibility. The five hours flew by; no one wanted to take a break. If you want to harness the powerful tools of LinkedIn and get them to work for you, I can’t recommend Dawn Boyer and her training classes highly enough. If you want to know how to improve your profile, how to create a profile/business page so you can upload work samples, and how to boost the number of recommendations you receive—just for starters—give Dawn a call.

    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 recently attended a seminar given by Dawn Boyer. The topic was Linked-In, Step by Step instructions for creating a Profile and learning about the benefits of Linked-In. Dawn presented the material in an easy to learn, hands on way that took the mystery out of the subject. We were all so fascinated that no one wanted to take a break. The best part was her follow up after the seminar. Her goal was to make sure that we were 110% satisfied. In my opinion, Dawn went above and beyond to make sure that all my questions were answered and that I had all the materials and tools necessary to continue with what I learned. I was 210% satisfied.

Dawn Boyer is a genius at what she does and what she does is pure magic. I had a tired resume that I thought included everything I had ever done and I needed some help getting this resume to a place that I was comfortable submitting it to large corporations for 1099 contract work and submitting it in response to state and federal RFPs. What she did is beyond description, frankly. She has a process that pulled out of me information I had long forgotten and she is able to paint you in the very best possible light — she tells the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth — but she is an artist at telling it. After she was finished, I thought to myself, “Heck, I’d hire me!” Now she’s working on a social media marketing campaign and I can hardly wait to see the results. All I can say is I’m waiting with baited breath. Dawn Boyer is an entrepreneur’s best friend.less

I also hired her to perform the Social Media Career package which enhances my capabilities of finding a new job faster, because she takes on all the ‘hard work’ of posting my resume to multiple job board / resume databases, as well as creating other social media platforms which enhanced my visibility (SEO) on the Internet.

She’s done it again! I hired Dawn in 2011 to perform a full rewrite for my resume – which was (as she noted) written in ancient 20th century style. I was able to obtain a new position quickly as a result. My current contract is up for renewal, and I decided to rehire her for an update for my resume, but also to update the Stage III posts and resume distribution with my refreshed resume.

If you haven’t tried her Stage III career package – you are failing yourself! She provides posts for up to 10 major job boards, spreads the resume to her contacts in the recruiting world, and now provides free QR codes for your resume (via a personal WordPress site built just for your) and for your LinkedIn account to apply to business cards.

She is a master at pulling valuable and vital details about expertise out of even the poorest written resumes; and adding the metrics that recruiters are seeking. She is a professional and has detailed knowledge about how the Automated Tracking Systems (resume databases) work ‘behind the firewall’ and knows how to make it work for YOUR resume.

If you haven’t yet revised your resume for a job search or career path for the 2013 economy and beyond – you MUST call her – she is a MASTER!

I asked Dawn to review my LinkedIn profile. She did a fabulous job – quick, efficient and very effective. Her feedback was invaluable.

I wish I could pick all the attributes for this Expert! She is an ‘expert’ in this field, the value was tremendous compared to other job search services, she completed my vital emergency resume rewrite and social media package in the space of four days, she used creative methodologies I would never of heard or thought of, and her trustworthiness is unquestioned – reliability guaranteed.

I have been seeking a fun challenging job with experience related pay levels for years, but struggled because I didn’t have a clue how to start, how to write a resume to get the phone calls, nor where to post the resume (I’m an amateur job seeker, which is what Ms. Boyer says it a good thing!).

She took my career information, compiled it into a government industry standardized form – making it easy to read, loaded with rich data that recruiters want to see, and after re-writing it, I purchased her social media career search package.

WOW – the phone calls are coming in! Now all I have to do it pick and choose where I want to interview and the companies in which I have an interest. THANKS so much, Dawn – you are the BEST! I would highly recommend any/all job seekers to purchase Ms. Boyer’s Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3 packages (found on her website). You won’t regret it!

 

 

Yaron Muhammad

When I hired Dawn to perform my resume update and posting for a job search, what I had to offer her to start with was slim. Between us, she was able to beef up the job descriptions that related my capabilities and accomplishments under each employer, as well as point out other valued skilled to future employers. And, she knows people – in the recruiting industry – and was able to push my resume to potentially interested headhunters for my job skills. This was not an easy project, but she came through with flying colors, and a very professional resume I could use for my career search.

I would highly recommend Ms. Boyer for anyone who is seeking an experienced resume writer and career coach who has her finger on the pulse of the industry (recruiting), but also exceptional skills in technology to go that next level of job search and career progression!less

I hired Dawn Boyer to create my resume about a year ago, and was able to get a good job with that version within weeks. Recently I lost a position and had her revise the resume, and I took advantage of her Social Media Package for job seekers. After she revised the resume, and started working on multiple social media platforms one weekend, the phone was ringing off the hook by Monday.

This was incredible!

I hadn’t had any calls for interviews or job interest in the last nine months (since I was working), but the last few months I sorta ‘played’ with finding a job. I was amazed at how Ms. Boyer’s techniques and processes put me at the top of the list for recruiter call backs!

It was amazing!

I would highly recommend anyone seeking a job to hire her for all three Stages offered by her consulting company: Stage 1 (resume review), Stage 2 (resume polish and coding), and Stage 3 (social media package and resume placement – including pushing to multiple recruiters and headhunters).

I attended her beginning training many months ago and was so excited to hear that she was offering an advanced session. I walked away with so much to not only optimize MY profile, but also how to be effective with my connections.
I would check off every attribute but LinkedIn would only let me choose 3. I highly recommend Dawn and her services to my friends and collegues.

Dawn Boyer was referred to me as a resume writer, Subject Matter Expert, based on her 22+ years as a Human Resources Manager, and 11+ years as a Recruiter, who knows how the ‘system’ works behind the firewall.

She was able to rewrite my resume – injecting metrics that demonstrated my capabilities, which are vital for recruiters’ reviews; polish and encode the resume with SEO (search engine optimization) features; and assist me in building a robust and rich LinkedIn Profile. She also assigned me ‘homework’ that assisted me in getting my rewritten resume ‘out there’ for recruiters and headhunters to find me.

Dawn D. Boyer, Ph.D. is one of the most versatile people I know! I had the pleasure of attending one of her LinkedIn classes several years ago and she so impressed me that I hired her recently to conduct my social media management.

Her knowledge of social media, her background and experience in business (as a business owner and providing mentoring via SBA SCORE), as well as her skills at writing (she writes, edits, and helps other publish their books), make her the absolutely perfect person for conducting and completing social media tasks for my business. What she has done in the first month for my social media is incredible – completed and set up LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Google Business Places platforms for my personal as well as business pages. She is a font of information about how to conduct ‘organic’ social media responsibilities.

Because Dr. Boyer has a Ph.D., she has also been through multiple ethics training events, and I know I can trust her to complete my social media actions with professional conduct, an intelligent manner, and she has a wonderful sense of humor that adds to the mix.

“Dawn recently re-wrote my old, tired and cumbersome resume for me, turning it into a powerful tool for me to use in my search for a new field of employment. She was concise and able to articulate my skills in such a way as to make me sound like the desirable employee that I am.

Dawn,

It was a pleasure working with you during this process, which has helped me to better understand the publishing process. Also, you will definitely receive a signed copy once I receive the book on Oct. 2. Many thanks to you for all that you have done for me, and I will do my best to promote your services to those interested in converting their dissertations, etc. I really enjoyed working with a top notch professional who kept me posted in every step of the way. Yes, there will be another book, once my organization fully implements their KM program. Thank you and continued success to you in all of your endeavors.

    Dr. Dawn Boyer provides remarkable services for professionals that are valuable career investments. Dr. Boyer was working on my resume almost immediately after purchasing Resume Writing Stages 1 and 2. She knew what questions to ask and how to transform everything a resume should have into a document employers want to see. The finished product is amazing! After that, I purchased the LinkedIn Profile Review, Analysis, & Enrichment, and received feedback with helpful tips provided in less than 48 hours. Dr. Boyer was delightful to work with while answering all of my questions promptly and effectively. Therefore, I recommend Dr. Boyer for her expertise in resume writing, LinkedIn review, and career expertise.

    Dawn possesses such a wealth of knowledge in so many different areas, it’s almost difficult to begin addressing them all. She has been very helpful with tips and information as to how best to expand my business, and has me thinking outside the box in ways that have really paid off. She is also an excellent speaker and educator, and conducts classes on everything from using social media profitably to job-search specifics. I highly recommend Dawn to anyone who is in need of human resources or job search expertise.

    Her PowerBall class re. LinkedIn:

    No wonder Dawn is called the “LinkedIn Queen”—her knowledge of this social networking site is astonishing. Her PowerBall class is one I would recommend to every job seeker or entrepreneur. Her delivery is superb, the information is fascinating— great tips on increasing your visibility. The five hours flew by; no one wanted to take a break. If you want to harness the powerful tools of LinkedIn and get them to work for you, I can’t recommend Dawn Boyer and her training classes highly enough. If you want to know how to improve your profile, how to create a profile/business page so you can upload work samples, and how to boost the number of recommendations you receive—just for starters—give Dawn a call.

    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!!

Dawn presented the material in an easy to learn, hands on way that took the mystery out of the subject. We were all so fascinated that no one wanted to take a break. The best part was her follow up after the seminar. Her goal was to make sure that we were 110% satisfied. In my opinion, Dawn went above and beyond to make sure that all my questions were answered and that I had all the materials and tools necessary to continue with what I learned. I was 210% satisfied.

Dawn Boyer is a genius at what she does and what she does is pure magic. I had a tired resume that I thought included everything I had ever done and I needed some help getting this resume to a place that I was comfortable submitting it to large corporations for 1099 contract work and submitting it in response to state and federal RFPs. What she did is beyond description, frankly. She has a process that pulled out of me information I had long forgotten and she is able to paint you in the very best possible light — she tells the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth — but she is an artist at telling it. After she was finished, I thought to myself, “Heck, I’d hire me!” Now she’s working on a social media marketing campaign and I can hardly wait to see the results. All I can say is I’m waiting with baited breath. Dawn Boyer is an entrepreneur’s best friend.less

I was able to obtain a new position quickly as a result. My current contract is up for renewal, and I decided to rehire her for an update for my resume, but also to update the Stage III posts and resume distribution with my refreshed resume.

She is a master at pulling valuable and vital details about expertise out of even the poorest written resumes; and adding the metrics that recruiters are seeking. She is a professional and has detailed knowledge about how the Automated Tracking Systems (resume databases) work ‘behind the firewall’ and knows how to make it work for YOUR resume.

I wish I could pick all the attributes for this Expert! She is an ‘expert’ in this field, the value was tremendous compared to other job search services, she completed my vital emergency resume rewrite and social media package in the space of four days, she used creative methodologies I would never of heard or thought of, and her trustworthiness is unquestioned – reliability guaranteed.

I have been seeking a fun challenging job with experience related pay levels for years, but struggled because I didn’t have a clue how to start, how to write a resume to get the phone calls, nor where to post the resume (I’m an amateur job seeker, which is what Ms. Boyer says it a good thing!).

She took my career information, compiled it into a government industry standardized form – making it easy to read, loaded with rich data that recruiters want to see, and after re-writing it, I purchased her social media career search package.

WOW – the phone calls are coming in! Now all I have to do it pick and choose where I want to interview and the companies in which I have an interest. THANKS so much, Dawn – you are the BEST! I would highly recommend any/all job seekers to purchase Ms. Boyer’s Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3 packages (found on her website). You won’t regret it!

When I hired Dawn to perform my resume update and posting for a job search, what I had to offer her to start with was slim. Between us, she was able to beef up the job descriptions that related my capabilities and accomplishments under each employer, as well as point out other valued skilled to future employers. And, she knows people – in the recruiting industry – and was able to push my resume to potentially interested headhunters for my job skills. This was not an easy project, but she came through with flying colors, and a very professional resume I could use for my career search.

I would highly recommend Ms. Boyer for anyone who is seeking an experienced resume writer and career coach who has her finger on the pulse of the industry (recruiting), but also exceptional skills in technology to go that next level of job search and career progression!less

I hired Dawn Boyer to create my resume about a year ago, and was able to get a good job with that version within weeks. Recently I lost a position and had her revise the resume, and I took advantage of her Social Media Package for job seekers. After she revised the resume, and started working on multiple social media platforms one weekend, the phone was ringing off the hook by Monday.

This was incredible!

I hadn’t had any calls for interviews or job interest in the last nine months (since I was working), but the last few months I sorta ‘played’ with finding a job. I was amazed at how Ms. Boyer’s techniques and processes put me at the top of the list for recruiter call backs!

It was amazing!

I would highly recommend anyone seeking a job to hire her for all three Stages offered by her consulting company: Stage 1 (resume review), Stage 2 (resume polish and coding), and Stage 3 (social media package and resume placement – including pushing to multiple recruiters and headhunters).

I attended her beginning training many months ago and was so excited to hear that she was offering an advanced session. I walked away with so much to not only optimize MY profile, but also how to be effective with my connections.
I would check off every attribute but LinkedIn would only let me choose 3. I highly recommend Dawn and her services to my friends and collegues.

Richard Wilson
Instructor at Remington College

Dawn Boyer was referred to me as a resume writer, Subject Matter Expert, based on her 22+ years as a Human Resources Manager, and 11+ years as a Recruiter, who knows how the ‘system’ works behind the firewall.

She was able to rewrite my resume – injecting metrics that demonstrated my capabilities, which are vital for recruiters’ reviews; polish and encode the resume with SEO (search engine optimization) features; and assist me in building a robust and rich LinkedIn Profile. She also assigned me ‘homework’ that assisted me in getting my rewritten resume ‘out there’ for recruiters and headhunters to find me.

I would highly recommend anyone needing that ‘extra’ expertise in searching for a new career to get in touch with her – ASAP – for her brilliant, resourceful, and rich background knowledge. (Her business website can be found at http://dboyerconsulting.com.)

Dawn Boyer, at my request, submitted an informative and expert article about Social Media marketing for my website visitors. The content was not only dynamic, but it was “chuck full” of ‘Common-Sense.’ My readers expressed concurrence with Dawn’s dissection of the Million-Connection-link reality vs. myth.

Ms Boyer’s editorial style is refreshing; in a world of smoke-and-mirror prose. Review her splendid article; http://www.eresumes4vips.com/is-social-networking-media-real-or-useful-pt-1.html & http://www.eresumes4vips.com/is-social-networking-media-real-or-useful-pt-2.html for a strong dose of social media reality.

Dawn Boyer is one of the most professional defense contractor Human Resources practitioners i’ve come across. Her attention to detail, ability to relate information in a clear, concise manner, and her ability to recruit for hard to find job candidates is top-notch.
