Are you like so many professionals who...
Apply for jobs using Internet job boards... with little or
Think the hidden job market is "just networking?"
Don't know who to trust regarding job search help with the plethora of internet marketing hype out there?
If at the executive level, don't know how to market yourself past talking to recruiters and a few networking contacts? Perhaps you have never had to 'look for a job' before?
Are ready to leap into a higher position and/or a higher compensation but don’t know how to get the right leverage to do it?
Don’t have time to spend hours and hours each day in a job search and wish you had an automated job search system you could set up that was turnkey and easy to manage?
Would like to connect directly with hiring managers but don't know how to get around human resources, keyword tracking software and "gatekeepers?"
Despise cold calling and making follow up phone calls that leave you feeling awkward and self-conscious?
Want to change industries, but don't know where to start?
Are unsure about how to identify your best target market, either locally, in another city or even a different state?
Don’t really know how to use LinkedIn in your job search or how to set up and optimize your LinkedIn profile?
Are frustrated when it comes quantifying your achievements, communicating your value and branding yourself?
Have anxiety about potential barriers to your ideal job including age, job history, lack of academic credentials or qualifications?
Don’t know if you resume is helping or hurting you – and when you reach out for help, you get conflicting advice?
Want to be choosier about your next career move, but the lack of response you have gotten so far leaves you feeling desperate to jump at the very next thing that comes along?
Feel you are a 'good interviewer', but aren't getting callbacks after the first interview?
Know effective networking is not about telling everyone you know you are in a job search or asking if they know of any companies who are hiring, but you don't know what to do instead?
Feel isolated and even depressed about your current job search?
Suspect you are being overlooked for perfect positions due to your age, job history, lack of academic credentials, a bad reference or qualifications?
If any of the above describes you, you are not alone! In fact, these are common problems. And up until now, there hasn't been a single resource that you could tap into to quickly get the answers you are looking for.
Both as a recruiter and executive career coach, I have walked hand-in-hand with nearly one thousand mid to executive level professionals through their entire job search. For years people have paid me nearly $300 a hour to solve their most challenging job search problems, and create powerful strategies for them to secure high quality interviews and very lucrative offers quickly and efficiently. In fact...
I have helped people negotiate $5k, $10k, $25k and even $100k more into their compensation packages.
I helped save them tens of thousands of dollars of lost monthly income from being in a long, frustrating fruitless job search.
I have shown professionals how to easily tap into the 80% of hidden jobs that are never advertised – because that’s the sweet spot: where the best positions+best compensation and total lack of competition meet. I put them back in the driver’s seat so they can go after what they wanted versus waiting for the “right” job to pop up on a job board somewhere and apply with 500 other qualified candidates.
I did this for them…and I can show you how to do it too.
And I now have a way to offer you the same, exact, powerful information, tools, resources, done-for-you-templates, blueprints and phone scripts - neatly organized by topic in an online library of downloadable prerecorded audio coaching calls and supporting documents.
I call it my Job Search Success System.
Here are a few specifics:
It’s a product that has been helping job seekers for 3 years now. So it’s proven.
It has a nearly non-existent refund rate. In other words, it works. Plus I back it with a money-back guarantee.
It won our most prestigious industry associations “2011 Career Innovators Award” (Career Directors International).
It works for new grads, mid-level managers and executives – because it teaches right mindset PLUS strategy.
It works in both good and bad economies.
It’s amazingly affordable and you can access it instantly!

From a note to Career Directors International Members...
"I just wanted to share with you that I've just started offering Mary Elizabeth Bradford's self-paced Job Search Success System to my resume clients.
I planned to get more feedback before posting here, but the initial feedback has been so positive that I'm too excited to wait.
My resume clients are blown away by the detail, approachable materials, and flexibility (very easy to "choose your own adventure" and hone in right away on the resources you need) of the program.
I myself have been going through it so I can be intimately familiar with what I offer my clients, and I am learning a ton.
If, like me, you've been struggling with providing your resume clients with actionable resources, I highly recommend you contact Mary Elizabeth about offering this to your clients. It thoroughly answers the "Now what?" question that pops up once documents are delivered.
It feels so good to say, here is everything you need. I have truly done all I can to ensure you are successful with these documents."

I found a job in the hidden job market in under 30 days and the company
called ME! What's more, through using Mary Elizabeth's interview and
negotiation techniques, I secured an agreement with my new employer

this market. I refer everyone I know that is currently in a job search
to Mary Elizabeth, The Career Artisan . . . she can help you meet and
even exceed your career goals. Thank you!!"

"After using your system I received three interviews
in a single week in the hidden job market! I was offered an ideal
position with a 10% compensation increase over my previous job. On
top of that, I used your monthly email day to ask you
about negotiation techniques and, with the coaching and feedback you
gave me, I was able to negotiate a $23,000 signing bonus and full relocation
package into the offer I received! It is a great job opportunity that
is in line with my objectives, and one that I never went out to the
job boards to try to find. I also have a new set of tools to help
