Can I see an example of a resume?
Here’s a Get Seen Resume before and after example that shows one of the template options.
How did you get into resume writing?
I believe the job search process is broken. Once upon a time… I got tired of seeing people get jobs I was applying for that didn’t even have half the qualifications and experience for the position I did. How did I know this? Well, I did what most people do, especially women, I used the job posting as a checklist. I would read every word in each bullet point multiple times, writing my specific relevant experience in the margin of the bullet and then I would tally up how many of the requirements I met. If near 100% I would then apply. I wasn’t getting calls. It made wonder what the heck is wrong with me?! Being a bit of a nerd, I became obsessed with finding the secret decoder ring of the job search process, resumes, all of it. I use nontraditional job search strategies and help you craft resumes, profiles, and cover letters in a way that screams READ ME—guaranteed to get you seen in the job market. I went on to have 17 different jobs with the most admired company in the world, I’ve been a recruiting trip partner for Disney, a hiring manager and seen my fair share of boring resumes that all look and sound the same. I’ve helped hundreds of people package up their knowledge, skills, and experience on their resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile in a way to stop putting people to sleep and turn those items into to tools to land their dream job.
Couldn't I use this money to hire someone to write my resume for me?
Sure that’s an option. However it would be difficult to find a custom resume writer for the price of these sevices, and what about when you are ready to apply to another job? This will set you up with the skills for the rest of your career.
How soon can I start Stand Out Strategy after I sign up?
Immedaitely. After you sign up, you will set up your login details, and you can get started with Stand Out Strategy.
Do you guarantee I will find a job?
If you follow the strategy I provide, I guarantee your resume will get seen.
I can’t offer a guarantee of success of the resumes or career-related products including the successful acquisition of a job or failure to land a job. You own your resume, how you show up in the interview, and what you say. I guide, suggest but you are an adult and therefore are responsible.
Do I need to purchase Stand Out Strategy to work with you?
No. To work with me 1-1 in One-Hour Sessions or Co-Creation Half-Day do not require you to be a part of Stand Out Strategy.
The exception is the Monthly Mentorship. That program is only available to students (present/past) of Stand Out Strategy.
A benefit of being a part of Stand Out Strategy is that you’ll understand my approach and process guaranteed to get you seen. Having this as a base will save you time (and money) when working with me 1-1 as we spend less time on going over the process and more time on doing work together to move your closer to your dream job.
Will we write and complete my resume|cover letter|LinkedIn profile in one-hour?
No. One-hour is not a lot of time.
What you are buying is one-hour of my time. My eyes, brain, expertise, ideas, on your document for one hour. We’ll do as much as we can fit into one-hour and that may include writing together but a completed document after our session probably won’t happen.
Will I have a completed resume after a half-day co-creation session?
It depends on your current resume and preparation coming into the session.
Most resumes I write take 8-10 hours or more to complete
What you are buying is a focused three-hour block of time for us to bang out as much as we can together and it depends on your participation. I promise your document will look and feel different after our session.
To be clear: What you are buying is my time, thoughts, suggestions, and brains on your document. You are not buying a completed document.
Does a Co-Creation Half-Day session with you need to be all in one day? What if I do my own proofreading?
I’ve found it best to get as much as we can in one half-day and stay focused. It is also your time with me so if you’d rather split it up, we can do that. If you want to do your own editing and proofreading we can work together for up to 4 hours.
I booked a Co-Creation Half-Day Session. Does my proofread/edit take place that day?
No. Not that very day as many times the resume is not 100% ready to go. Clients are often reviewing what we worked on together and revising sections. You can “bank” your professional proofread/edit for up to 30 days after our Co-Creation Half-Day Session.
Once I receive your document to be reviewed by my editor, she’ll usually get them turn them around within 48 hours
I see you're in Los Angeles, do you do sessions in person?
Currently in person sessions are on hold with Stay At Home but I’m available virtually! I look forward to the day when we can do half-day co-creation sessions and packages in person in Montrose, CA.
Do your reviews include proofreading?
In the review, my focus in on how best to position you and your experience to highlight your awesome and stand out to hiring managers. I’m not looking for typos or grammatical errors specifically in my review. If I happen to see any, I will comment on them but you own your resume so any suggestions/comments I make will be yours to accept as you wish.
Want a professional editor to proofread/edit your documents? Book a One Hour Session (BTW it’s not me. I have a PHD in typos and I’m aware and own my ability) and I’l have my editor do it for you.
Can I hire you to write my resume for me?
Although I believe you have what it takes to write your resume better than any writer can because no one knows your work history, what you have done, and are capable of more than you. That’s why I created the Stand Out Strategy program.
I also get wanting someone to just do it for you.
So yes, I’ll craft you a bespoke resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile and they’ll be professionally edited. Here’s the process:
1. We get started with a branding/strategy session (45min-1hour) where we talk all about your experience, successes, and what you are going towards.
2. I’ll create your documents and send you a draft.
3. We schedule a review session and go over any revisions you have . I’ll compile your revisions (you receive 2 rounds of revisions) and once you finalize, your documents are off to my editor.
4. I’ll send you your final documents in a Word document and a PDF
Timeline: Given the time that goes into crafting your documents from scratch, expect your documents to be delivered in 3-4 weeks after our initial branding/strategy session. We’ll confirm your delivery date in our first session.
Contact me to discuss and reserve your spot.
Can I start with Stand Out Strategy and add on the monthly mentorship later?
Of course! The Monthly Mentorship is exclusively available to any students of Stand Out Strategy no matter where they are in the process. Want some additional support? Add it for a month and let’s do it together. Found your dream job, cancel it. 6 months from now you want to find a new job dream job, add it again. It’s a perk available for you to get the support you need when you need it.
The only thing is, spots are limited and I only take so many mentors on a month so availability may not be available but I do my best to make it so.
If you don’t add it to your initial Stand Out Strategy sign up you can add it at anytime once inside the program on the home page.
How do I pause/cancel my monthly mentorship?
You can pause or cancel your monthly mentorship at any time (and start it back up again when you need it) by going into your account for Stand Out Strategy.
Can I hire your editor to proofread my resume?
Book a one-hour session, put in the notes you want an editor review, and I’ll review your document AND have my professional editor review it for you as well.
