This is right for you if you are set on your intended career path, but your resume is overdue for some love and attention. It includes a full resume optimization review (I use a tool that ensures that the bots “get” you and your experience), detailed notes from me on how to enhance your experience and skills for potential employers, and a dos and do’s guide to resume writing. I’ll also provide an easy-to-implement design template so you can present your experience in a format that is hiring-manager friendly. This involves one edit and one follow up review to make sure you are on the right track. $225; Schedule by emailing Chandra@thetalentfairy.com.
