The major differences between a professional and a seasoned professional are tenure on the job and level of experience. A seasoned professional is trusted and admired by his or her peers and is often looked to as a mentor for those new in the field. A seasoned professional knows what to do in any given situation and provides guidance to others based on his or her knowledge and skills.

A seasoned professional is complimented by a steady progression of challenging assignments and a balanced escalation in responsibility. Along with possessing distinctive qualifications, the seasoned professional is able to:


  1. Identify the characteristics and needs of others at each level of their career development            
  2. Monitor and diagnose the performance, competence, and commitment of others to determine their need for direction and support.                                                                                               
  3. Provide opportunities for open communication and information sharing.                                            
  4. Resolve conflicts.                                                                                                                           
  5. Build strategic relationships that strengthen performance and achieve company goals.


A seasoned professional is not always a manager, and doesn’t need to be. Leadership and influence, demonstrated in every capacity, are traits that exemplify a seasoned professional.

As with professionals, key personal qualities that define a seasoned professional are honor, reputation, and trustworthiness. Trustworthiness comes from an assurance of reliability. Reputation is not only a signal to your customers, but also a commitment mechanism that keeps you on top of your game!

There are two keys to seasoned professional success:                                                                          

  • Always take time to think and analyze before acting, and                                                             
  • Use your competencies and expertise to exploit opportunities to innovate, that is, to develop new methods and processes for you and your organization to become more efficient. 


As we prepare a seasoned professional resume, we will be looking for the following artifacts:              

  1. A specific career objective indicative of the position you wish to obtain. Our counselor will work with you to match your career accomplishments against your objective.                                      
  2. Educational accomplishments equivalent to the position you wish to obtain. Although a college degree is not required, it is highly beneficial for attaining higher levels of authority and responsibility within an organization. Certifications and/or other evidences of specialized training are also highly regarded.                                                                                                    
  3. Specific things you’ve done in your career that signify leadership (in either thought or action) and progressive change management, where innovative idea implementations are prevalent.



Make an investment in your future!
