Resume Assistance

Whether you are a student fresh out of college, a long-time professional looking to change jobs or fields, or someone looking to re-enter the job market after a very long sabbatical, your resume is the most important tool you can have in your professional tool box and is the best way to market yourself to potential future employers.

A resume is a living, breathing document that should be updated at least monthly and should be adjusted and adapted specifically for each and every job for which you apply.  Sometimes that task can be a little daunting, especially if you are actively looking for a job and sending out a number of resumes.  It can be even more daunting if you’ve never made a resume, haven’t touched your resume in years, or feel like you don’t have anything significant to print on your resume.

If you find yourself nodding in agreement to the statements above, please contact me.  I love resumes and I want to help you love your resume, too.

I will sit down with you to discuss what your employment goals are, what your plans are to achieve them and then help you design a resume that represents you in the best way possible.

Speech Writing

Some studies have shown that most people fear public speaking more than death.  If you are one of these people, I can help you.

Conquering a fear of public speaking is less about being a great speaker than it is about having confidence in yourself and what you have to say.  If you believe what you’re saying, the audience will too.  From elevator speeches to public addresses, learning and maintaining good communication techniques and confidence in your ability can help you quickly overcome the fears and insecurities that correspond with public speaking.

With an undergraduate degree in rhetoric and writing and a master’s degree in communication and information and four years of experience writing talking points for the Knox County Mayor, I have both the academic and professional background to help you determine your key messages and how to best deliver them.

Understanding that public speaking doesn’t come naturally to everyone and that “having a way with words” is a unique talent that not everyone possesses, I am willing to work with you to put together a speech that is audience appropriate and represents you in the best way possible.

Pricing

Pricing is contingent upon difficulty and time sensitivity of requests, but I can promise that I’m more affordable and more willing to help YOU with your resume and speech writing needs than a depersonalized web service.  To contact me regarding resume and/or speech writing consulting, please fill out the form below.
