Your résumé is your first impression to an employer. It should be clear, concise and showcase what you offer within 7- 10 seconds. Yes, seconds! A résumé is not one size fits all. There are numerous things to consider when formatting your résumé to get the employer’s attention within those 10 seconds. That’s where I come in. I take the time and put in the work to ensure that your knowledge, skills and abilities are emphasized.
Yes, cover letters are still a thing and often, a requirement. Cover letters can be difficult because each one needs to be tailored to the job and company you are applying to. Cover letters are specific and speak directly to your candidacy. Even if not a requirement for an application, cover letters are a fantastic way to point out how your experience aligns with that of the position or to explain gaps in employment. These are incredibly important for those seeking a career change!
Résumés get you the interview, interviews get you the job. The key to going into any interview is preparation. Being prepared for the types of questions that will be asked is only half the battle. A good interviewee has questions prepared to ask and a follow-up Thank You note at the ready. I utilize a set of techniques to aide in helping you stay calm, focused and, most importantly, authentic in an interview. Interview coaching sessions also include assistance on interview clothing, preparing those questions to ask and how and when to send the Thank You note.
