You’ll come away from your webinar meeting with fresh ideas, new clarity, and a real understanding of the simple changes that you can make yourself to turn your average resume into a superb, results-generating resume.
While telephone is always an option, most clients choose to meet with Michelle using webinar technology. This allows Michelle to share her computer screen with you and visually point out recommended changes and corrections to your resume.
This isn’t one of those so-called “critiques” that are really a sales-pitch in disguise. Many resume services offer these, but intentionally hold back from giving you any specifics so that you will never be able to make the changes yourself. That isn’t Michelle’s style! She believes in delivering value that far exceeds your expectations. Michelle doesn’t hold ANYTHING back and will share with you her valuable information and expertise gleaned from almost two decades of experience working with job hunters.
Michelle will work hard to give you all the advice you need to improve and strengthen your resume yourself. But, at the end of the consultation Michelle will give you a coupon for $105.00! That’s right, she’ll give you a coupon crediting back nearly 3/4 of your investment on the consultation–to be used for a DISCOUNT on our professional resume writing services, if you change your mind and decide you would rather hire us to make the changes for you.
