This service is designed for the candidate who wants to land more interviews by using a new and more effective resume as soon as possible, this service gives you fast turnaround. Joanne calls the resume she does with you a "provocative" resume...because it provokes a response from employers. Simply put: they want to know more about you. Now.
Is your resume not generating responses from hiring managers or recruiters? Joanne packs this time on Zoom video conferencing with you with personalized coaching on your resume, line by line. Joanne tells you what you must do to make your resume more effective. This and other related sessions (same charge, regardless of numbers of meetings) are completely customized to YOU. With Joanne’s help, you make the changes that will make the difference in your search. Wording suggestions are included: Joanne comes up with the best words for you, she discusses them with you, and works with you as a partner to get them into your resume. She does not farm it out to someone else. And each is original, generated only for you.
*** First, email Joanne to learn if this option is right for you. You and she willl have a brief talk (free) before you decide. ***
How it works: Joanne will ask you to do some pre-session activity that you’ll then share with her, so that you and she make the BEST use of the time.
Then you have the session with her: This is a very full hour plus with Joanne Meehl, one-on-one, just for you. As soon as you finish the changes, both in and after your session, your resume will be ready to use.
You’ll get additional guides and materials, that Joanne chooses specifically for you, which are included at no extra charge, to keep your new and positive momentum going!
(Talk with Joanne first [no charge]. She does not take all clients, only those ready for change. Once your payment transaction is complete, within 6 hours you will receive an email from Joanne about next steps and scheduling the hour with you.)
Joanne is not a resume "writer" with a smattering of some knowledge here and there but is a resume builder and full job search coach who shows clients how to build a resume that is "you on paper", based on what employers say WORKS. On a regular basis, she asks top-notch recruiters and hiring managers to review her resumes, of real clients, and over and over again, they tell her "Just what I'm looking for!"
More than a document, the resume is a summary of what you have to offer, AND tells the employer what you want to do. But it doesn't say it all. Instead, it says just enough to provoke curiosity. And an employer's email about interviewing you.
Joanne not only knows the right words for each client, she knows careers, career paths, industries, organizational structures and disciplines, and has worked with thousands of candidates in job search. Joanne is also a published author with two books on careers, is a blogger and guest blogger, and former outplacement consultant, college career center director, marketing hiring manager. She has had her own career coaching and strategy firm for 20+ years and was on the Forbes Coaches Council 2016-2020, an invitation-only membership.
Joanne is selective about who she works with; she can tell you more when you talk with her. This service includes several bonus extras, such as Joanne's cover letter sample, "60-second commercial" template, sample email signatures, and several guides about resumes and about job search strategy. LOTS of resources.
Read these recent reviews:
"The outplacement people that my company hired 'farmed out' my resume to someone who never met me...as a result, the resume wasn’t 'me'. Working with you, though, you’ve captured who I am and what I can offer, so now I can use my resume with confidence." - VP of Operations, Minnesota
"Working with you on my resume, the most important takeaway was that I became more confident in what I could offer, and that translated into landing my dream job, even during the pandemic." - College Enrollment Counselor, Virginia
"I thoroughly enjoyed our time. Learned a lot. You have a gift and I am appreciative." -- Business Development Manager, New Hampshire
"[The internal recruiter] was incredibly effusive with her praise of my resume. ... She said she had been in the business a long time and rarely had she seen such a well executed resume. She arranged a phone screening with the hiring manager last week, they brought me in for an on-site set of interviews yesterday and they offered me the job today. So THANK YOU!!!! It was the resume and very fortunate timing that made this happen for me." -- Technical Documentation Manager, Massachusetts
"I just wanted to say, thank you so much for all your help. I finally feel like my resume looks and sounds good. I’ve had the old version for so many years and just kept adding to it. So I am extremely grateful for what you’ve helped me accomplish." -- Accountant, South Carolina
"I feel like I’m now in Job Search 2.0" -- Mechanical Engineer, Minnesota
