Sally’s Results: Sally was kind enough to email me to tell me of her job search success. She stated, “I just wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful job you did creating my résumé. It helped me land the job I have been looking for. I start [next month] and will be a case manager for the Area Agency on Aging. I will be working in their program which helps seniors age 60 and up, who are on Medicaid, stay independent in their own homes. Anyway, thank you so much for your help.”

Keys to Sally’s Success: The best results always come from a combination of a great résumé marketing a great candidate. Sally had the experience; she just wasn’t able to “package” it to get her foot in the door. Often I find my clients are so stuck on the fact their recent experience isn’t as related as they would like, they lose sight of the fact that they are still aptly qualified for what they want to do; and it often takes just a little objectivity to figure out how to market the transferability of recent less-related experiences. I’m thrilled Sally will enjoy her new position with her target employer.
