College Student

“Damian Huang” is a college student who reached out to me for help revising his résumé. He had uploaded his original résumé to his university’s job board, but he wasn’t getting contacted for positions despite his strong leadership and management experience. After a 1.5-hour interview, Damian and I revised his résumé to match the job listing for an internship at Google. Damian and his mentors felt much more confident with his revised résumé.

Résumé highlights:

  • Clarifies language for increased legibility.
  • Restructures résumé to show a continued work history.
  • Moves education to the bottom to prioritize leadership experience.

High School Education Only

“Pablo Fernandez” doesn’t have a college degree, but he’s had jobs across multiple industries. He called me for help applying for a position in the hospitality industry. His skills as a caretaker in his previous hotel job and group home job made him an excellent candidate for the position. He received an offer for the job, which he accepted.

Résumé highlights:

  • Removes irrelevant work experience.
  • Tightens bulky paragraphs into easy-to-read bullet points.
  • Removes “hobbies” section to increase space for skills.
