Decoding the Posting
Job descriptions are a gold mine of information, though we often focus on the wrong things that they tell us. This lesson teaches you how to parse any job description and know exactly how to match yourself to the company's desires.
- We focus so much of our resume on certain aspects of the job description, which is likely what is actually losing you the opportunity.
Find the Glory in Your Story
The truly game-changing module of Standout Resume -- these lessons walk you through a special practice I do for my clients called a "brilliance session." Through this process you will be able to tease out your most impressive moments from your career, find the glory in your story, and craft them to be perfectly suited for your resume and any role you are pursuing.
- You'll receive a detailed workbook that makes crafting your story as simple as assembling Ikea furniture, including my simple process to add numbers to any accomplishment.
If we only have 6 seconds to catch a resume-reader's attention, we better get your best details up top in a highlights section. In this module you get specific templates and step by step guidance on how to craft the perfect highlights section that promotes your top experience and skills.
You'll get the exact bullet points that a hiring manager is looking for, and the opportunity to put your most relevant experience (even if it is early career, project based, or volunteer) front and center.
Between the workbook, the brilliance session, and the bullet templates, you will find your experience section on your resume truly coming alive with what makes you exceptional.
No matter how much or how little experience you have, this section will be crafted to each opportunity you pursue in a method that makes you the obvious choice for the interview.
Feature the right elements of your education in the right way on your resume. You get a walk-through of what matters, and what is distracting.
You get a resume template that walks you through exactly how to fill out and format this section, as well as all of the other sections.
For those of you who have the space on your resume, there are several sections that you should consider adding to your resume. Depending on your situation, these can add a lot to your impression.
Have you wondered what actually matters in a "Skills" section? You'll learn what the hiring manager is looking for, and how to make sure your skills section is ATS friendly (HINT: many people make a mistake here!).
I was the Director of Human Resources at a technology company, and I worked with all the hiring managers, peeled through hundreds of applications a week, and was passionate about the fact that it was my job to make sure we hired the best match for our team.
Seeing that high volume of resumes, and hearing the feedback from every single interview and application, some very clear trends emerged.
I saw so many people making big, but easily fixable, mistakes in the job application & interview process.
So I began spending hours every week replying to each job application with a reason why they were not chosen.
I thought I was helping, but it was a disaster.
It turns out most people do not want unsolicited feedback, so I stopped.
It was taking too much time and emotional energy, but I also didn't want to give up and not help.
That's when I began creating content and Self Made Millennial was born.
The results have been astounding and the feedback has been incredible.
The difference with this course from others is it features up-to-date, bleeding edge job search strategies.
I am not someone who quit her job to do exclusively career coaching, or landed one great job & decided to tell the tale.
I am still in the HR function everyday with a front row seat to what tools are being used, what skills are desired, and what it takes to stand out.
The job search is constantly changing and evolving, and can guarantee you are getting only the most current strategies with this course.
The thing that keeps me dedicated to helping people is I have found my dream career. Everyday feels meaningful and empowering.
I want to do everything in my power to make sure you feel the same.
If you are:
- Only pursuing jobs you think you can get versus jobs you actually want
- Living for the weekend
- Applying to a wide variety of jobs because you aren't sure what you want and who will want you
- Feeling stressed and drained after a typical day at work
- Thinking every time you get a new job you think things will be "different," but end up being disappointed
It's time to stop settling.
It's scary, but there are better opportunities out there.
And we will find them together.
