- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
An initial session would start with an intake interview/discussion, during which we talk through the client's background, skills, and goals. Next, I prepare a draft of their new or updated resume and/or cover letter. Finally, once they've had the chance to review everything, I'll prepare and send final versions.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a B.A. in English from Harvard University, and was trained in resume and cover letter writing at LIFT, LiveCareer, and Arriba Juntos.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started volunteering in college supporting Cambridge-area residents with job searches as part of the Cambridge office of a non-profit called LIFT. In addition to learning about how to write effective resumes and cover letters, I realized that I loved supporting my clients in working toward securing jobs. While working as a freelance writer a few years later, I found a job with a career resources company, an experience that reaffirmed for me how much I loved resume and cover letter writing as part of supporting people in navigating transitions in their careers.
