About Shelly Piper

As CEO and founder of the Piper Strategy Group, I am committed to revolutionizing the way job seekers approach their job search by coaching them on today's best tools, strategies and revamped mentality needed to thrive—and survive—in today’s new and challenging job market landscape.

 

As a former agency/corporate recruiter and headhunter, I leverage my recruitment experience to provide behind-the-scenes insight to my clients on recruitment practices, stigmas and nuances that directly impact (and impede) their existing job search strategy. From there, I coach clients on how to best position and realign themselves in the market. 

 

As a job search and interview coach, I delight in empowering job seekers. Leveraging my recruitment perspective, I am able to help clients understand their unique value proposition in the market and how to align their offer to relevant, targeted opportunities. I then coach clients on how to powerfully articulate and differentiate their offer in the marketplace. 

 

My approach is direct, intuitive and supportive. I am known for providing realistic, hard-hitting feedback and strategic consultation that has delivered tremendous results for clients ...where other coaching and job search systems had failed to produce. 

 

In recent years, I have been asked to present as a keynote speaker for a next-gen national job board, the Alliance for Women in Media, Boston Herald's Diversity Career Fair and Fox 25 News, where I delivered insights on today's best job search strategies. 

 

I earned my B.S. degree in Business Administration from Northeastern University where I graduated cum laude, and completed additional studies in Public Relations, Direct Marketing and Advertising at esteemed institutions here in Boston (Emerson College, Bentley College and the Boston AdClub). 

I leverage this in-depth understanding of marketing strategy and business operations, coupled earlier corporate Fortune 500 and recruiting experience, as well as ongoing training in personal marketing, branding and job search strategy, to help my clients succeed in today's market.

SIMPLIFIED PROCESS

Finally, a Branding Process that gets to the "Heart of the Matter."

The Branding Process I utilize is simple and direct to ensure you are not burdened with cumbersome questionnaires. 

 

In leveraging a proprietary methodology that I developed, we are able to streamline the strategic branding journey to provide powerful results, and a better experience for you. 

IT IS ALWAYS A PARTNERSHIP

 

Effective personal branding and marketing is always the result of a strong partnership. 

Each project and client is unique. 

​I rely on my partnership with you to gather what is needed to produce the best results for you. 

Without your active participation in the process, we will not be successful in producing the results you desire.

STEP 1: THE EXPLORATORY CALL

 

First, we schedule a 15-minute phone call to discuss your needs and challenges to the market in more depth - and determine if we are a good fit. 

STEP 2: THE INTAKE PROCESS

 

Next, we schedule the Intake Call. 

 

No cumbersome questionnaires to fill out in this process. 

Instead, I have you reflect on a list of proprietary questions that I have developed that get to the "heart of the matter," and then we connect for the Intake Call to dig deep and further discuss. 

Just as a note: In working with 2,000 clients to date, I've found that the "magic" always comes out during this call, and not with some static, form-filling process.

STEP 3: THE DELIVERY PROCESS

 

Following the Intake Call, résumé drafts are delivered within 5 - 7 business days. 

​LinkedIn and additional document drafts are delivered within  2 - 4 days following receipt of your initial feedback on the résumé. 

Once we have established a good grounding on your unique value proposition from this process (the Intake Call and first drafts), we can then begin coaching and preparing you for interviews, negotiations and networking.  

The "magic" always begins here. It is the foundation for everything we do to best support you in your search. 

* There are times when I can accommodate a request for a rush turn around. Please contact me to discuss. 

STEP 4: DETERMINE NEXT STEPS

 

A successful, targeted job search requires more than just an outstanding résumé. 

 

To ensure you are on solid footing as you head into the market, I offer additional services.

Highly Personalized and Holistic Methodology ...that Works.

PSG's methodology is comprehensive and holistic - drawing out compelling, deeper insights regarding your unique value  proposition in today's market - that even you may not have been aware of.

STEP 1: CLARITY & ALIGNMENT

 

Clarity is critical. 

Throughout this process, you will continue to gain a clearer understanding of "what is next" for you.  This is paramount in building a solid foundation for a successful job search. 

STEP 2: PERSONAL BRANDING & STORYTELLING

 

What makes your offer unique in the market? Do you know?

Through our work together, you will gain new insight and clarity in knowing (and owning) your unique value proposition, giving you a completely different perspective and level of confidence as you head into the market. 

By utilizing highly strategic "storytelling," I craft your branding documents in manner that compels your targeted market to reach out to you for a deeper conversation and interview. 

STEP 3: STRATEGIC DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

 

What is most important and relevant to your targeted market? 

 

Do you know?

By leveraging a highly strategic approach to placement of these compelling stories, we are able to capture the attention of your targeted reader within that critical first 6-second glance. 

STEP 4: GO-TO-MARKET STRATEGY & EXECUTION

You have your new résumé in hand ...now what? 

 

A truly effective job search requires more than just an outstanding résumé. 

Through our work together, you  learn how to tap into the hidden job market for faster and better results; how to perfect your interview strategy; how to proactively handle compensation conversations ...and much, much more.
