Resumes: Master & Tailored | Cover Letters
That’s how long, on average, recruiters spend looking at resumes. We can help you create your master resume and/or a tailored resume for a specific job so yours isn’t tossed out in 6 seconds.
A master resume is a comprehensive document that encompasses your entire educational and professional history, all your qualifications, your accomplishments, and any training you may have completed. Depending on your history and experience this could be a lengthy document, comprising many pages.
A tailored resume is a document you create for a specific and individual job posting. It’s easy for recruiters to recognize if someone used a generic resume. If you can customize your master resume into a one- or two-page specific resume, you can stand out as an ideal candidate due to your use of keywords tailored to the job posting.
It is important to remember a resume review does not mean we will write your resume; this will be a collaborative process where we will discuss your experience and background, but you will put in the majority of the effort to create and update your document(s).
We like to think of resumes as a teaser, something that is used to catch recruiters’ attention. It is a brief summary (resume is French for summary) of your professional and educational background that makes you a perfect candidate for the job. Your cover letter is a document the recruiter will only read if they are interested in learning more about you. This is where you can begin to tell a story about yourself, become more personable, and really capture the recruiter’s attention.
Unfortunately, this is hard to do. Let us help you make the job application process easier! We can collaboratively update your resume and cover letter so you submit an intriguing and informative application package for each job posting.

College Major Exploration
Some students go to college knowing exactly what they want to study and have a plan from the beginning. However the majority of students do not have a plan and don’t know exactly what they want to do. Some students think they know exactly what they want to do and then realize it’s not for them (like me).
Did you know that most of the time people don’t work in a field where they directly use their college major? Let’s have a conversation about your future so you can make the most informed decision about your college path.
