Resume & Cover Letter Consultation
Through a 30-minute Skype consultation, I will review your resume and cover letter for any job you are applying for. I can improve your resume through the use of language that highlights your gifts and talents in a genuine and approachable way. I will enhance your resume in ways that may often be overlooked - allowing full expression of the parts of you that are often difficult to communicate on paper.
Having applied for many career positions, scholarships and fellowships over the past decade, I am well-versed in how to sell yourself without selling your soul. Helping someone articulate themselves on paper is one of my favorite things to do for a few reasons. First, it gives them a real-life look at exactly how they appear to others through a format that is relied upon in Western society. Secondly, it allows people the opportunity to learn how to present themselves in ways they may not yet be aware of. Third (and most importantly) it teaches people how to see the investments they have made in themselves - that they are truly "worth it" and that they are capable of earning any job or scholarship they need to move forward in life.
Training & Qualifications
I have taken workshops and trainings on resume writing from some wonderful career coaches (the most valuable of which has been Walk of Life Careers and Coaching.) I am well-versed in personal branding and my knowledge of presenting the Self in a way that is genuine, yet attractive to employers drives my work. I have also taught at the university level; during this time, I worked with many undergrads on how to improve their resumes with great success.
Availability & Preferences
I am generally free in the evenings on Monday through Thursday and I am more flexible on Fridays. Weekend evenings are an option as well. I will work to accommodate the time difference between us, no matter where you live.
