The Fringe Coaching Program is inspired by Fringe Theatre, a movement of independent artists who chose to self-produce and market their plays. Fringe is like the DIY of theatre, often unconventional, bare-bones and memorable.
I love Fringe Theatre because the creators don't wait for a theatre or approval, they have an idea and make it happen. The same can work for you and your job search copy. You have ideas about what you want to say. You mostly trust your writing ability and like to own your work.
I love people who trust their creative abilities.
I believe you are capable of writing dynamic and interesting work, in this case, a resume. I’ll be like a great director & help you tell a good story. You write. I guide. It’ll be a great show!
HOW IT WORKS
You'll be guided through a three-step method of career story building and strategy.
01. CAREER STORIES ANALYSIS 02. RESUME REVIEW 03. STRATEGY CALL
01. CAREER STORIES ANALYSIS
This is my very favorite work, imagine this...
- you spend a few days writing out your career stories (don't worry, I send you prompts to make it easy)
- we get together on a call where you share all your career highlights and disappointments
- I help you to see what is awesome about you and salvageable for a job search.
- You leave feeling seen, heard and with hope about your next career move.
It feels a little bit like magic. This is the best work I do. But because job search is more than knowing your story.
After the session, I send you a breakdown of your career brand -- which stories are significant, the kind of work you're suited for and what I'd encourage you to highlight in your resume.
It's like a cheat-sheet of your awesomeness.
02. RESUME REVIEW
Based on Career Stories Analysis and some resume writing tools I provide (either the Resume Bootcamp or resuMAY program), you update your resume. I am available as you write it for brief feedback or questions.
Once you've written the document, send it my way. I'll review it, make edits and advise what will make it stronger.
You make the edits and I review it one last time before you apply for jobs.
03. STRATEGY CALL
Your program ends with a final strategy call. We talk out how to use your revised resume & stories to land ideal work.
You leave feeling confident in your career stories and plan.
And if you need more support, like a mock interview, you get that at a discounted coaching rate.
COACHING PROGRAM COMPARISON
Hey! Does it need to be a resume? I have a website, blog, medium profile etc....does this work for entrepreneurs too?
If you like the idea of having me analyze your work stories, but it's to land ideal clients instead of a job, I can do that too. We'll decide at the start of the program what writing piece you'd like advice on. It could be:
your about page
company profile anywhere
or copy for a course you're selling
As long as it's about 3 pages of text, I can review that.
We can use the strategy call for business strategy. Easy.
