Resume in a Weekend

A step-by-step guide to writing a tailored resume in a weekend (or take as long as you want)

You want to be proud of your resume.

I want you to be proud of it too.

In this self-guided course, I lead you step-by-step to create a tailored resume for a specific job using the Career Stories method.

You can write a resume over a weekend. Yes, really.

You can do this course at your own pace, it's your resume. But I designed it so if you sculpted out an entire weekend for this work, you could make it happen

If you are thinking about writing a resume and ...

  • you want your resume to get noticed...
  • you want an easy way to hit the points hiring people need to see every time… 
  • you want to be proud and confident about the resume you send in...
  • you want to make the best  impression possible, and have it sound like you..
  • you want to land interviews based on your qualifications and stories. And when you show up, they know what they are getting. 
  • you want to know what makes you unique for a role and how to sell that 

then get into this course!

You could probably use a process that helps you write a great resume with the least pain possible.

Resume writing is something a lot of people dread. You can pay someone like me $500 - $1,500 to write a single resume for you. Or you can make one yourself with my guidance.

Nobody can write about the things you have done, like you can. You just need to know the new rules of resume writing, get some inspiration, a proven process and some encouragement. I would love to do that for you.

I know people who  think they can't write, but actually they can. If you have time to take this work seriously you can write a resume that will get you interviews, and sound like you. I've seen it hundreds of times. It's actually better that way. 

The beautiful thing about you writing your own resume, is that you own and know your career story and the words. It becomes easier for you to talk about your skills in an interview, or through networking, or on LinkedIn, when you build it yourself. Resumes don't land people jobs. People do. And I'd like to support you as you create a resume you are proud of, quickly and  joyfully.

Writing a resume isn't that hard to do. The hard part is when you start to question what to include, what format to use, and what the expectations are. 

Would you like to know that stuff without asking six different sources?

Would you like to have a clear and simple process, one so perfect that creating it only takes a few days?

You could have a awesome resume in just a few days. 

I've put this program together to help you do exactly that.

It's called Resume in A Weekend.

Resumes aren't that complicated

I used to write poor resumes. And, the worst thing was that I didn't know. 

It didn't matter because I was going for entry or coodinator level roles, and none of the competition were sending in anything better (which is a poor excuse). 

But once I started applying for higher level jobs, or jobs outside my sector, I stopped getting calls using my resume. I knew I was qualified. But I wasn't landing interviews.

I was doing something wrong.  I got obsessed with resumes. I read every resume book I could get my hands on. I found writing them so much fun that I wrote fake resumes in my spare time (nerdy, I know, but I am playwright and it comes naturally once I knew the rules). 

I signed up for resume classes and spent three years studying resumes from every angle. My resumes got better. I even did a HR Certificate to understand how recruiters and hiring people read resumes.  I covered my bases. 

I used my skills to land a job as a Career Transition Consultant in a fancy HR firm. I learned resume writing from their executive coaches, and quickly became the in-house resume expert. I taught all the workshops and webinars. Clients of all levels came to see me for resume help.  I taught over 1,000 people, ranging from entry level to CEO level how to write their resume.

I got so good at writing and helping people with their resumes, that I build a business doing it.

The cool thing about being self-employed is that it gave me full expression to play around with how I wanted to teach resume writing. And I figured it out.

I tested this new method of resume writing on two groups in 2018. The first group was an online cohort of professionals. I gave them three weeks to do the work. But I was suprised when they did it in days.  They got calls for interviews immediately. Awesome. 

The second group was a class of 15 Web Development students, many who were international. I used the same process to teach them how to write resumes. Not only were they beautiful documents, but some students used them to apply for jobs, and landed interviews within days!

People in both groups raved  that I took a process that they hated before and made it kinda' fun. 

I knew I was onto something. 

One you have a process, resumes are easier to write

Resume writing is not about a lack of information, but too much information.

You need a process that you can trust, so you focus on crafting a document that lands you interviews, instead of questioning every move.

You can now get my process for for creating resumes that get you called for an interview.
without ever having to use cheat tactics, swallow your pride, or be a cheeseball- not even once.

Inside Resume In A Weekend, you're going to learn the process I use to make concise, clear, attractive accomplishments based resumes that meet the modern hiring person's standard.
