How Find Your Jam’s Services Work

My resume and cover letter services start with a 30-minute consultation where we talk about your background, your goals, any challenges you’re experiencing, and what you’d like to get out of working with me. We’ll come up with an action plan together, whether it’s reviewing your resume, writing a cover letter, creating a smartly tailored application, preparing for interviews, optimizing your LinkedIn profile, or job search strategy coaching.

Working with me is a collaborative process. We’ll work together to build application materials that highlight your strengths and expertise in terms of the roles or types of roles that you’re applying to.  I am fully flexible and happy to work with you in any way that suits you best.

I provide all my advice in writing, so you’ll have something to refer back to. My goal is to work myself out of a job by equipping you with everything you need to prepare effective application materials and run a successful job search.

Resume Reviews

Stage 1

After our phone or video consultation, I will go through your resume and/or cover letter and give you line-by-line feedback and suggestions for improvement.

I can help you tailor your resume specifically to a role you’re interested in or write a more general resume geared toward the type of job you’re after. If we’re creating your resume from scratch, I’ll give you a template with detailed instructions, and we’ll write it together.

Stage 2

After you review my feedback/instructions, we’ll have another meeting to go over it, talk through the changes you want to make, and answer any questions you have.

Stage 3

You make the changes and send me your updated resume. I review it again, polish up the format, and thoroughly proofread and edit.

And you get your shiny new resume, my reference materials, and an open invitation to come back for help tailoring your resume or creating an application for a specific role.

Interview Preparation

I’ll take you through the most common interview questions and the specific requirements for your prospective job. We’ll sketch out your answers and run a mock interview so you can rehearse your answers and work through interview nerves.

Focusing on any specific areas you’re concerned about, my interview services will boost your confidence and make sure you’re ready for your interview.

Job Search Strategy Sessions

Each hour-long session is tailored to what each client needs and prefers.

Generally, we’ll start by talking about what roles you’re looking for and what challenges you’re coming up against.

Then, we clarify your goals and talk through how to hone your job search strategy, which can include:

  • Your application materials
  • Where to find suitable jobs
  • Targeting organizations
  • Dealing with job boards and online application processes
  • Optimizing your LinkedIn profile
  • Networking
  • Handling rejections and job search fatigue.

After each session, I follow up with a summary of our discussion and action points.

Whether you choose one session or more, you get unlimited follow-up emails.

If there’s something you could use help with that you don’t see here, or there are any adjustments or accommodations I can offer to make things easier on you, just ask!

At the end of our work together, I want you to feel confident in your application skills and optimistic about your job search. I’m excited to help you find your jam!
