At heart, every resume writing challenge is the same: to take what we know about each client and present it in a way that is interesting, aligned with current objectives, and relevant to a future employer.

But we all know that some projects are more difficult than others. They require us to think differently, come up with new ideas and formats, and be creative in presenting a background that doesn't fit the mold.

Writing these resumes and LinkedIn profiles challenges us to showcase what is positive about a client and downplay the negative while meeting employer's expectations. It's a balancing act that great writers know how to do well.

In this E-Summit, Resume Writing Academy CEO Marie Zimenoff will share tips and tricks for helping any candidate shine based on her experience helping ex-offenders find work, training staff on military bases, teaching resume classes at a workforce center, and guiding resume development for students at a nonprofit retraining center.

You will walk away with strategies, samples, and new ideas so you feel confident and well-prepared to help many different clients dealing with diverse challenges. For example:

  • Hopping from one job to another – whether by choice, industry downturn, or poor performance.
  • Returning to work – whether that absence relates to raising children, recovering from an illness, being incarcerated, retraining, or any other factor that took your client out of the workforce.
  • Exiting the military – and pursuing civilian jobs that may or may not relate to military experience.

Career services staff at workforce centers, nonprofits, community colleges, and military bases where we have delivered this training rave about these strategies – many they have never heard before!

In addition to tips, techniques, and strategies, you'll receive a valuable portfolio of resume and LinkedIn profile samples PLUS an opportunity to brainstorm around your own challenging client scenarios.
