Most people assume that my standard inquiry comes from a person who is frustrated and baffled as to why their resume is taking them nowhere. While that certainly is a common theme, it's not the concern that stands out. Interestingly enough, my typical client is pretty aware of the problems with their resume. In fact, they can often provide quite accurate self-critiques. Many are drawn to Tandem because they can't stand the thought of embarking on another job search with the resume they have in hand; they know it's a subpar representation of their background and experience. So, my typical client is "stuck" in terms of how to put together a more dynamic and engaging resume. It's not easy to present ourselves in the best light possible!
