Resume Building & Interview Coaching
Help with professional skills from Kim
Filling a resume or curriculum vitae is often a daunting task when we're just starting out, but it can be just as difficult with years of experience. Even more nerve wracking is the interview after your resume/CV has been accepted. Why is it so difficult? For many people, talking about themselves is a skill they never learned. It's not always boastful to talk about yourself- if you know how to do it right, it can be a skill that will carry you far & help you land that job!
A good resume can take you far- it can land you a job, gain many complements, & even get you suggested & recommended for other jobs even if you aren't selected for the one you applied for. But getting there is a process. Having someone to help with the process can enable you to feel more confident in your job search!
You could have been perfect for the job! But someone's interview was better. Many people struggle with interviews. It often feels awkward to talk about yourself & it's tough to sit in the 'hot seat' & be evaluated. Poor interview skills can hold you back from new employment & promotions.
