How much would you charge to write a resume?

Anonymous

That’s not really my thing. I have helped people out with theirs, but my goal would be to teach others how to do it themselves so they could be successful with it in the future.

I wish I could teach a course on practical life skills which would include all of my knowledge in the financial world, how to build and maintain good credit, resume writing, interviewing techniques, etc.

I think I would be excited to go to work every day :)

I feel like I should start a blog for cover letter, resume, and interview tips. Then maybe someday I can expand it into a consultation business :)

Are peep toe wedges not formal enough for a job interview in retail? It's slightly peeped like just my big toe nail lol. I only have those (there small wedges) and like 4 inch clothe toe heels that I've only worn once so idk if I can walk well in them. Or I have black flats that have a gold chain on them.

I guess I’d have to see them? And it would depend on what else you’re wearing. If in doubt, I’d go with the flats. If you’d like, post a pic as private and send me the permalink and I’ll help you decide :)

"All their ‘helpful’ comments imply that if I’d only do_______, my problems would be solved. Like it’s all within my grasp, able to be managed and mastered, if only I would try harder, longer, better. As I nod my head in polite and pathetic appreciation for their input, I scream inside, ‘Shut up. Shut up. Unless you’ve been lost in this particular section of hell yourself, don’t you dare try to give me directions."

Hi, I was hoping you would be able to help me! I was advised that although a resume is obviously very important, an amazing cover letter should be included in order to even get your resume looked at. What should someone with very limited experience in the work force include in their cover letter?

Well first of all, I think you should consider the position you’re applying for when deciding whether or not to include a cover letter. Basic jobs such as retail wouldn’t be something you would include one for unless specifically asked. Assuming you are looking to include one, I would first focus on what the hiring manager is looking for. You don’t want to make them have to figure out how your skills meet their needs, your cover letter should do that for them. Therefore, the more you know about what they’re looking for, the more specific and compelling your letter can be.

I would start with some scrap paper and write out what the ad is looking for and what you offer in skill and experience to meet each need. Once you can see how you’re a good fit for them, I would pick your top 3-5 reasons why you’re an excellent candidate and really highlight those. 

I found a good example for a recent graduate that I really liked, it’s below the read more link :) Hope this helps!
