The Fairy JobMother
I am the real deal…”Madison Avenue” Advertising and Marketing Executive. (ala “Mad Men)
I strongly believe that a great resume is both a powerful career review AND a marketing document designed to open doors.
WE BECOME PARTNERS
Years ago, I found myself wishing I could raise the proverbial magic wand, to help transform resumes and people. I’ve found that 1-on-1 coaching and working together over a few weeks will open new perspectives.
From our close partnership in this process, chances are, by the time we are finished, its likely, you will start to see, feel and even present yourself differently: crisp and concise yet holistically vs. a series of dates, titles, and functions.
THE GO OR NO REVIEW
Companies consistently place the highest value on those who can clearly articulate their unique qualities crisply and cleanly in both written and verbal communications.
Potential candidates need to keep in mind the average hiring manager spends 15-30 seconds to review a resume. First impressions are lasting impressions
“I’m not interested in overdesign and gimmicks and the obvious mass produced templates go immediately in the trash… I want honesty in a legible, smart and informative document that tells me what you can do.”
Steve D. – CEO
A GENERIC PRESENTATION = A GENERIC RESPONSE
Checking boxes to have some else write your resume is like wearing a jacket that doesn't fit. It doesn’t reflect you, your style or your unique qualities.
These expensive services, generally prepare cookie-cutter resumes that all begin to look the same. Recruiters and Hiring Managers are always weeding through piles of the same “cookie-cutter, fill in the blank, formulaic resumes.
Soon they all begin to look alike and experts can spot them a mile away.
Candidates get frustrated and wonder why no one calls.
Keywords may stand out to a computer system, but the resume still needs to excite the human screener and hiring manager.
“A potential employer will spend 15-30 seconds reviewing a resume before making a decision to pursue or to pass… easy to read with a balance of everyday descriptions and appropriate technical jargon…
… A good resume captures the person and their accomplishments and serves as a reference document”.
Monica T. – VP People Resources
GREAT RESUMES TELL A STORY
Through our 1-to-1 coaching, in-depth questioning, guidance, direction and defining the goals of your “homework assignments”; we will develop a unique presentation reflecting your employment history, skills and accomplishments… with enthusiasm, personality, spirit, and style.
The process itself often develops a new personal sense of accomplishment, pride in your work, and the confidence to present yourself with clarity and strength…the jacket now fits you!
"The work I did with Nancy in reworking my resume was like nothing else I had ever done before in terms of creating a professional profile... She led me through the process and she made me think holistically about me as a professional and as an individual... It's almost as if she has an invisible scope that looks into you and leads you into creating a resume that is a story about yourself and not just a collection of dates and experiences... And this was done over the phone! One has to do the actual writing work, but with her leadership the final product is amazing."
Tony D. – Business Development – Pennsylvania
Create a Great Resume is a NOT a “fill in the blank” template or resume writing service; it is much more than generating a piece of paper. With guidance, YOU will create the content.
I believe everyone is special in his or her unique way. Part of my gift of being The Fairy Job Mother is to help people identify and communicate the qualities that make them special.
Lets work together to Create A Great Resume and A Great Candidate!
