Inspiring Conversations with Mardarius Thomas of M3: The Corporate Coach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mardarius Thomas.

Hi Mardarius, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Absolutely! I started my career consulting firm in 2018 after receiving my master’s degree in education. It all started with me not being able to land a job in higher education or Corporate America.

I think I applied to over 60 jobs and only received 2 interviews. Just like any normal 20-something-year-old, I was disappointed and confused. I was interested in knowing why I couldn’t land a job, so I did some intrusive thinking and reached out to the companies I applied to find that it was my resume.

I took their critiques and even invested in taking some professional resume writing courses to enhance my resume. I took what they said and applied it in a way that best fit me. I applied for 1 job for 27 days straight and received 19 interviews! I knew the modifications I made worked because the phone kept ringing.

I went from being stressed about getting a job to declining interviews and OFFERS! It was one of the most liberating experiences for me professionally and personally, so I decided to see if my methodologies and the methodologies I learned from others worked. I revamped and optimized my friends’ resumes, and they received the same results!

I started marketing on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn and my following has grown tremendously. However, my mission has stayed the same, “Optimizing Career Growth for the People,” as I want to be an affordable resource for others to advance their socioeconomic status.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road at all because so many people don’t see the value in a high-quality resume.

I had to find ways that appealed to my target market, but I had to also expand my market to professionals outside of my comfort level. Since doing so I have been able to meet people exactly where they are.

Whether it is at a drive-thru window or C-Suite at a Fortune 100 company. Everyone can use career development materials to “get a bigger bag” no matter their current financial state.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about M3: The Corporate Coach?
Well M3: The Corporate Coach specializes in career optimization services for entry-level professionals all the way up to executive- (C-Suite) level professionals.

These services include resume revamps (or optimizations, as I like to call them), cover letter construction, interview prep, career coaching, and LinkedIn optimization.

There is literally something for everyone no matter where you are in your career. Our goal is to hear your needs and desires and help you build to reach the desired outcome.

Alright so before we go can you talk to us a bit about how people can work with you, collaborate with you or support you?
One thing I hope to do as I have grown is to connect and train individuals to become resume writers. If anyone is interested in doing so, let’s connect via Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedIn.
