If you’re new here, read this first. Why? Because it’s good to understand what you’re looking at + why it exists at all before you dive in. It should feel like a fit if you’re going to invest more time.
The Resume Project method is most beneficial for people who meet at least one (or more) of the following criteria:
:: You know how to find work but you are bored by what you’re putting out there in the world to represent you (hint: you don’t like listening to yourself talk about yourself);
:: You feel like it’s time to move on … only to what exactly, you’re not sure;
:: You want to make sense of your past work history, but it feels overwhelming and confusing without a method or guide;
:: You are struggling to help your network (+ family and friends) understand what you do and how you do it so that they can help you in your career journey;
:: You so dislike being asked what you do;
:: You are undergoing a career transition and feel like all your past experience isn’t applicable (or wish it didn’t exist);
:: You feel “lost in translation;”
:: You desire clarity, confidence and authenticity in how you communicate who you are before you invest time and energy into looking for work.
Sound like a fit for you? Okay then:
Below is the growing archive of articles pertaining to writing a resume that feels prosperous that is also gateway to connect with your career fairy tale come true.
I’ve worked with more than 300 people personally on the process I’m about to share and I’ve seen thousands of resumes, but I’m prepared to make the Resume Project even better. This means that if you have questions or want me to talk about something that you don’t see here yet, or would like more clarification around something, get in touch and let me know. That way I can incorporate your needs into upcoming segments or create new sections that address your questions. I want to do this project with you. Click here to get in touch.
If or when I address your question directly, I will get in touch with a note. If I’m slow to respond, it’s usually because I’m not at that part yet. It’s just me back here.
(Also, let me know if you’d like these articles in audio format. I wasn’t sure if that’s something you would want or not.)
If, along the way, you find that you become interested in working together on your resume, keep in mind that my resume service is only offered to current clients AFTER our foundation work together. If you’d like to learn more about that, please click here.
To make sure that you don’t miss a single article as they come off the (word)press, I encourage you to sign up for my confidential mailing list (if you’re not already on it). Check the column on the right for the box to stay connected (your email is safe and secret with me).
Note (only ‘cause I get asked what the difference is often): I am a private + customized curriculum Career Counselor. This means that 99% of the time I work with people who are in jobs already who don’t find what they’re doing for work altogether meaningful nor fulfilling.
This also means that if your resume needs are urgent and you are unemployed, please contact a public career service office near you for immediate help.
And lastly, please help to spread the word. Career dissatisfaction is a preventable dis-ease + this shouldn’t be a secret. xo
