What happens after I order?
1) Upload Your Current Resume: You can also email me an existing resume, if that's easier! If you don’t have a resume or career history document, just skip this step.
2) Intro Email: I will contact you right away during normal businses hours to confirm your order. I'll let you know of any additional information that is needed and schedule the phone consultation for that Friday.
3) Let's Discuss During the Friday Phone Consultation: We will discuss your career goals and unique brand in order to make your resume stand out above the rest on Friday. I'll gain more information about your job experience and unique offerings, then I'll work my magic.
4) Receive your Resume on the next Friday: Your new resume will be ready in just one week or even faster by selecting the option for Priority Next Day Rush Delivery. After reviewing your new resume, cover letter, and any other documents, you can let me know of any questions. If you have any revisions, we can complete them at this time.
