ANONYMOUS QUESTIONS

FREE — We love hearing your stories and can usually relate (and definitely feel you on the BS!) and ultimately, we want you to know you are validated.

If you have a question about your job search that you feel uncomfortable asking in a public forum, you can send Erin a Marco Polo and she’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Download the free app and feel free to send me a message. Marco Polo is "Face-to-face, personal communication unlike other video chat apps, you don't need to be live."

If you can't find Erin on there or don't know her cell #, just send an email and we’ll get it set up: erin@cafeconresume.com

Let's normalize this job search stress! Face to face and personally!
