CLIENT PROFILE: A RENEWED OUTLOOK

Kent Nolen

I recently received an e-mail from a past client. Here's part of it.

...I spent much of the last 2 years looking for a job. Most of that period was spent sending out a resume that I knew I wasn't proud of every time I sent it out. I wanted a job (and disparately needed one) but could not figure out a way to present myself in a way that made me feel proud. After working with you and, ultimately, receiving a new resume, my only disappointment was that I hadn't done it sooner. I could not get out of my own way in order to present myself in effective manner...."

 

This is something that comes up a lot, from past clients and others. People can't get past the white noise in order to create a resume that communicates what matters and what readers actually want to see. No matter who does your resume, be sure that it isn't a list of flat job-description-like bullet points. The job market is simply too competitive to expect a positive result from a resume like that.

I followed up with this client and learned that she got a position with a company that had recently done a lot of lay-offs. She had avoided applying there, because she thought it would be futile given the down-sizing. After our work together, she determined that it was a place she had a lot of interest in so she applied.

She had a renewed attitude about her resume and about her job search. Look what happened.
