What I Do

Whether you're trying to find your first job, working to recover from a long period of funemployment or looking to move industries, I'm here to help. With a background in Strategic Communications and Humanities, I've realized I have two loves: editing and helping people. 

Since graduating college and moving to New York, I've walked with numerous friends through the job hunt process: from scouring through job listings, to drafting, editing and finalizing resumes and cover letters, to developing thoughtful answers in mock interviews.

Job hunting is stressful. So this is where I come in. I've been on both the side of the job-seeker and the job-giver. Even if I haven't worked in your industry, there's a skill in being able to sell your story well. And once you've told me yours, I'll help you learn to tell your story in a way that makes it seem like you're the only person fit for the job.

 

Services

Below are descriptions of the types of services I offer, all of which are sliding scale and negotiable based on your needs.

Resume Editing & Formatting

With the rise of the internet, employers can get hundreds of job applications a day. It can be really daunting task to get your resume to stick out in a pile of hundreds. 

I'll help you to make sure your resume captures the work you've done, while demonstrating that you are capable and able to do the job at hand. 

Initial Read + First Round of Edits & Comments: $15 - 25 Sliding Scale
Follow-Up Rounds: $10-15 Sliding Scale Additional

Cover Letters

There's a lot of talk that employers don't read cover letters. Sure, they may not spend hours mulling over how you structured that one sentence you edited five times but employers do use cover letters to narrow down their best candidates. It's the part of the process where you get to really tell your story, why you want the job and why you qualify most. 

Personally, this is my favorite part of the process. This is where I get to understand the passion behind the jobs you're applying to. And even if you're just trying to make a living wage, I'll find a way to weave what excites you into your job applications. 

Initial Read + First Round of Edits & Comments: $15 - 25 Sliding Scale
Follow-Up Rounds: $10-15 Sliding Scale Additional

Mock Interviews

Interviews, whether on the phone or in-person, are the moment for you to make your best first-impression. It's best to come prepared, with thoughtful answers so you don't end up with a deer in headlights moment, and questions so you can be clear about the kind of job you are in the running for. 

Typically, I'll prepare a list of questions for you to develop talking points around (if you haven't already) and meet with you over your preferred medium (phone, Skype, in-person) to prepare you for your interview. 

1 Hour: $15-25 Sliding Scale
Every Half Hour Over: $10-15 Sliding Scale Additional
