Josef Stetter, Corporate Culturist & Resume Whisperer


What sets your services apart from other business consultants or coaches in the industry?


Well, let me tell you about my personal journey.


When it came to finding my purpose and pursuing my passion, I was completely clueless. Over the past 25 years, I've switched careers and industries about 9 times and held around 18 different jobs. Each time, I had to go through the challenges of tailoring my resume, showcasing my transferable skills, and convincing employers that I was the perfect fit for the role. Unfortunately, I faced rejection and missed opportunities, forcing me to prove myself repeatedly.


On top of that, I have nearly 20 years of experience in recruiting. I've worked with a wide range of companies, from small businesses to global enterprises, in industries such as Fintech, Accounting, Finance, Software & Application Development, Pharmaceutical, Construction, Medical, Engineering, Manufacturing, Gaming, and more! Some of the notable clients I've worked with include Tata Consulting Services, Deloitte, Skechers shoes, Apotex Pharmaceuticals, and others.


To complete the picture, I've personally assisted over 11,000 individuals in landing their dream jobs, often achieving results in as little as 2 days. This extensive experience has given me a comprehensive and holistic approach to helping both individuals and companies succeed."


As a business consultant or coach, my unique combination of personal career challenges, recruiting expertise, and a track record of empowering individuals to secure their dream jobs sets me apart in the industry. I understand the struggles job seekers face, and I bring a wealth of knowledge and insights to guide them towards success. With me, you can expect a truly comprehensive and effective approach to achieving your goals.


Can you share any success stories or case studies from previous clients you have worked with?


Allow me to share some remarkable success stories and case studies from previous clients I've had the privilege of working with. With over 11,000 individuals successfully landing their dream jobs in as little as two days, there are plenty of inspiring examples. Here are two notable ones:


One client, a product manager in the social media industry from New Jersey, faced the challenge of an economic downturn impacting his self-employed business. Desiring stable income, he embarked on a job search for over six months with little success, experiencing only a couple of interviews. After enlisting my services, I meticulously revamped his resume and optimized his LinkedIn profile. Within just two and a half weeks, he received interview invitations from major social media giants such as Google, Snapchat, Facebook, and Twitter. The transformative power of the 'Land Your Dream Job Now' program, equipped with its advanced expertise, tools, and systems, dramatically accelerated the process and generated genuine interest from multiple companies. The customized and unique resume, focusing on his career achievements, proved to be the game-changer.


Another client, a recent immigrant to Canada, faced repeated rejections for positions despite being highly qualified due to the infamous "lack of Canadian experience" barrier. Seeking my coaching and comprehensive full-service program, which encompasses attention-grabbing resumes, LinkedIn optimization, mastering interview techniques through the 7 Rules to WOW any interview, outsmarting job boards, leveraging relationships with recruiters, effective networking strategies with immediate results, salary negotiations, and more, she achieved a leadership role in her area of expertise within just one month. Her success story exemplifies how, when branding and marketing oneself correctly, the notion of needing "North American experience" becomes a myth, debunking the belief that starting from the bottom is necessary to get hired.


These are just a glimpse of the many success stories I have witnessed. The results speak for themselves, highlighting the effectiveness of my personalized approach to help individuals achieve their career goals. By implementing proven strategies and leveraging my expertise, clients can navigate the competitive job market with confidence, overcoming obstacles and securing meaningful opportunities


If you could change one thing about your industry, what would it be and why?


If I had the power to change one thing about my industry, it would be the need for a complete revamp and modernization of outdated practices. In the field of resume writing and career coaching, it is evident that many professionals still rely on generic and cookie-cutter approaches that no longer yield effective results.


One particular issue that needs to be addressed is the prevalence of generic resumes that fail to stand out in the sea of online resume portals. Far too often, job seekers focus on "customizing" their resumes by using subjective and overused terms like "hardworking," "dedicated," "committed," and "team player." Similarly, career coaches often fill resumes with action words like "managed," "directed," "liaised," and "communicated" without providing tangible evidence of the results achieved in their work.


This approach perpetuates a flawed model where job seekers believe that they will have the opportunity to showcase their talent and abilities during interviews. However, the harsh reality is that many job seekers never even receive the chance to interview due to the lack of attention-grabbing resumes. The current emphasis on generic action words and soft skills needs to shift dramatically towards highlighting measurable results and achievements.


To truly transform the industry, we must prioritize a results-driven approach that focuses on quantifiable accomplishments rather than relying on clichéd phrases. Resumes should be tailored to highlight the specific impact an individual has made in their previous roles, showcasing their unique contributions and successes. By shifting the narrative to a more outcome-oriented perspective, job seekers can effectively demonstrate their value to potential employers.


Additionally, career coaches should play a vital role in guiding job seekers towards crafting resumes that captivate hiring managers' attention. They should encourage clients to quantify their achievements, providing concrete evidence of their capabilities and showcasing their ability to deliver tangible results. By doing so, job seekers will not only increase their chances of securing interviews but also differentiate themselves from the competition.


In conclusion, it is essential for the industry to break free from the sea of sameness and adopt a more results-focused approach. By modernizing resume writing and career coaching practices, we can empower job seekers to present themselves in a compelling and unique manner, ultimately leading to more opportunities and success in their job search.

What inspired you to start your own business and become a consultant/coach?


Back in 2006, a pivotal moment led me to take the leap into entrepreneurship. After single-handedly generating a remarkable $760,000 in revenue for a recruitment firm the previous year (five times more than any other employee), I found myself receiving paltry commission and a measly Christmas bonus of cheese and crackers. It wasn't the cheese and crackers that bothered me the most, but rather the profound lack of appreciation for my hard work and contributions. Regrettably, this lack of recognition is all too common in the corporate world, underscoring the urgency of landing your dream job now!


This disheartening experience pushed me to make a significant decision. I made the courageous choice to resign from that job and dedicate the following three months to nurturing my entrepreneurial aspirations. To my astonishment, my venture proved immensely fruitful, enabling me to surpass my previous income as an employee with commissions and bonuses by more than triple the amount.


This transformative experience not only fueled my desire for independence but also ignited a burning passion within me. I recognized the immense value of empowering individuals to secure fulfilling careers and avoid the hardships I had encountered. It was then that I wholeheartedly embraced my role as a consultant/coach, driven by the sincere belief that everyone deserves to find professional success and be appreciated for their contributions.


Through my journey as an entrepreneur and consultant/coach, I aim to revolutionize the way individuals navigate their career paths, guiding them towards fulfilling employment opportunities and instilling a sense of appreciation and fulfillment in their professional lives.
