Al Smith, our best-selling career counselor, leads workshops on a weekly basis. On the first, third and fifth Mondays of every month he speaks at Unity North Atlanta Church in Marietta, GA. On the second and fourth Mondays he leads three workshops at Roswell UMC Job Networking: Baby Boomer & Gen-X Search Strategies, Executives in Transition and Resume Writing Workshop. All are free to the public and require no pre-registration.

NEW!!! Check out our latest book, “HIRED! Every Employment Method
Available in paperback and via e-book.

HIRED! is receiving rave reviews: “Al Smith’s “Hired!” is an important book. How many of us have waited for the phone to ring after we have sent our resumes in everywhere? Everyone.

With wit and humor, Al Smith and his experts show you how to get serious about your job search even if you thought you were doing everything “right.” Everyone who has ever struggled with the job market needs to read this book. Fantastic!

We Know What Works!

You know you’re perfect for the job. You submit your resume. Then you wait and wait, and you hear nothing.

It’s probably not you. It’s the formatting of the document you submitted. 90+% of companies today use some form of Applicant Tracking System software. If your resume doesn’t “fit the system” you’re in the Black Hole never to be seen again.

TheHIREDguy will create two versions of your resume: One designed for online submissions and another version to impress people with 2 eyes and a brain in interviews. Additionally, you’ll receive our Cover Letter template designed to vastly improve your odds of getting into a recruiter’s hands.


LinkedIn Page 1

Have great credentials and not attracting recruiters? TheHIREDguy knows why and can help. Together, we will get you to page 1 any time a recruiter conducts a Boolean search for your job title…GUARANTEED!

Using our proven Words to Work™ method, TheHIREDguy takes advantage of specific algorithmic factors to get your profile found more often. If recruiters are trying to fill a position with your job title, your profile WILL be viewed.

Value Proposition
 Interview Presentation Decks

Did you know Recruiters can “read” your resume or LinkedIn profile in 10 seconds or less? Once your profile is found, holding their attention should be your goal. That’s one part of what theHIREDguy’s Value Proposition decks accomplish.

Your Value Proposition can be adapted for use as a presentation piece during face-to-face interviews. In short, your Value Proposition deck will help differentiate you from other candidates. And virtually no Hiring Managers will have seen anything like it!

“…the flood gates have opened. I have 6 or 7 recruiter messages today whereas I would normally have fewer than that in a month…” This even amazes me…11 Recruiter views in the first 12 hours after Phil reached Page 1, LinkedIn Positioning.

Al Smith is very positive and a terrific guy. I give my highest recommendation and would encourage anyone new to the job market to contact him ASAP.

If you're looking for a job coach who's genuine and compassionate about seeing people get back to work, look no further than Al Smith!
Paula W.

When it comes to career coaching…and job search, Al is one of the best around. I got some very valuable tips from him… when in transition. I felt that his spot-on suggestions greatly helped me in landing a new job…with thin two weeks of being laid off.      

-Mark W.

“…look no more and consult with Al because he will certainly get you where you want and need to be. His expertise and advise are invaluable! I highly recommend you give him a call if you are serious about your career and want to be happy in your next position.

Al's Page 1 Positioning process was the best investment I have made in my career since my college education. This LinkedIn $#!+ really works!
