Job Search Prep
Writing a resume, especially early in your career, can be confusing and frustrating. An effective resume can get you an interview. An ineffective or flawed one will go into the “Hold File” at best.
We will work with you to create a resume that showcases your experience in the best light and has the potential to drive an interview that will help you get the job. You’ll create a resume that you’re proud of, and the discussions we have while reviewing your resume will be as valuable as the final product itself.
Our work together will result in:
- A list of the 10 reasons that someone should hire you
- An understanding of the differences in creating an online resume and a paper resume
- Decisions regarding what should and what should not be included
- Decisions regarding what format best showcases your skill, strengths and experience
- A resume that highlights what’s special about you
- A resume relevant to the types of positions you seek
- Brief pointers for the interviews to come

Our work together will include:
- A list of the 5 – 10 things an interviewer must learn about you
- How to get the inside track on your prospective job
- How to respond to the questions that scare you
- How to make the most of the experience you’ve had
- How to turn the interview into a conversation
