what do you wish i knew about you before i hire you? 

While our About Us may look all neat & tidy, we both have had some crazy real-life work experiences. We’ve questioned what we were doing, we’ve cried in our wine and beer, we’ve smoked too many cigarettes worrying about what the hell we were doing with our lives. But each time we “failed”, we figured out how to pick ourselves up and move forward. And that’s what we want to share with you. Hearing your stories is our favorite part and we’d be honored to have the chance to help you get un-stuck. No one likes job searching…so let’s normalize it and embrace it as part of your journey.

do you have SUGGESTIONS FOR A CREATIVE RESUME TEMPLATE?

We do! Check out a variety and see what you like on Etsy here. There are many to choose from that you can decide what is right for your style and easy for you to edit.

Erin also has a good ol’ Word Resume template that she is likely to share with you if you work with her. It has gotten her 17 job offers since college so she’s a fan. And it’s nothing fancy FYI.

i have intermittent experience. How should i show this on my resume?

Honesty is the best policy. List your experiences in reverse chronological order and the dates you worked there. You can address lapses in employment in a cover letter or email introduction. 

If you have a few gaps, try to include anything during that time where you were being productive by taking classes or volunteering.
