Service Description

First and foremost - make the resume reflect your accomplishments and experience with a focus on what the industry or company wants.

1. Interview by phone, in person, or email. This will allow me to discover special things about your experience or education for your resume or cover letter.
2. Research the type of industry or specific company you are targeting. The more I know about your target the better and it will allow me to get keywords that will help computer search engines find your resume on-line.
3. Prepare a draft resume for you to review. The type of resume will depend on your experience and education - chronological, functional, or a combination of the two. We will keep working on this via email or phone until you are happy.
4. Prepare a cover letter that targets a particular company.
5. I also offer services for interview coaching and posting job applications. Many times the first interview is done by phone.
