What happens after I order?
1) Easily Upload Your Current Resume: If you don’t have a resume or career history document, just skip this step.
2) Nice to Meet You via Email: I will email you ASAP during normal business hours or first thing the following morning if the order is placed outside of regular hours. I will contact you right away and tell you of any additional information that is needed and schedule the phone consultation.
3) Let's Discuss During the Phone Consultation: We will discuss your career goals and unique brand in order to make your resume stand out above the rest. We'll gain more information about your job experience and unique offerings, then we'll work our magic.
4) Receive your Resume: Your new resume will be ready in just 5-7 days, or even faster by selecting the option for 24-hour delivery. After reviewing your new resume, cover letter, and other documents, let me know of any questions. If you have any revisions, we can complete them at this time.
Can the phone consultation be after normal business hours?
Of course! I know that you may have a limited time span for the phone consultation. I'll gladly work around your schedule.

Absolutely. There are several options for career change resumes including functional resumes, hybrid resumes, and targeted resumes which all utilize formats that highlight your overall skill set and offering. I will evaluate your situation and let you know which option will work best for you.
