Preliminary Resume Assessment

Is your resume working for or against you?  Let’s make it WORK. Period.

I have reviewed thousand of resumes over the past 15 years, so I really am one of those people who can find what I need in a few seconds.  It is a learned skill!  But the resume needs to be written for three audiences — a person to scan, a person to read, and applicant tracking software (used for online job applications) to parse.

What do you think about your resume now?

  • Oops, you don’t have one at all?  That’s fine.  I have written many resumes “from scratch”.
  • You have a resume, but you are not getting interviews.
  • Your resume does not give a clear understanding of what you have to offer your next employer.
  • You have a resume, but it no longer reflects your current career status or your next step.
  • You have specific issues you are not sure how to handle, such as employment gaps, a lot of job movement, or concerns about your age.
  • You have skills, knowledge and experience in multiple areas that will be of interest to an employer but your resume is unfocused.
  • Your resume does not clearly convey your qualifications. Perhaps it is over-stated or under-stated.

There is no charge for a preliminary resume assessment or initial consultation.

After you complete the short form below, you will be taken to my appointment calendar.  Just pick a date and time that works best for you (as a reminder, there is no charge for this initial service).  I find it’s easiest to schedule a call this way, so that we don’t play phone tag and waste your valuable time.  However, if none of the available times on my calendar fit your schedule, please call me at at 510-790-9005.
