Keep updating your Resume!
Since I graduated college in December 2010 with a BS in Business Management from Rasmussen College, I have held many positions, and none lasted long. For various reasons, I either got fired or quit; therefore, I had to keep updating and crafting my Resume to find a new job, and then another new job, and then another new job. I didn’t have any issues landing a…
job, I had a problem holding one. Obviously my Resumes were working, probably because I was constantly on the phone with Rasmussen’s career services, asking them to continually critique my work, or scheduling to meet with STLCC for Resume help, to make sure I was doing it right. I always took the critiques well, and got better and better with my Resume writing with each new revision and job.
While looking for a job in May of 2014, I decided to do freelance Resume writing until I located a new job. The problem with that was that I was slowly putting money back into the business, buying business cards and such. The investments I was making turned into more income. After several months of intensive interviewing and struggling to land a job, I took the advice of a business adviser who suggested I create a website in order to move forward with the Resume business.
Services to Online
Using a nickname from my childhood and the power of alliteration to my favour, I bought the domain name from GoDaddy. Since the site was very basic, and I learned I could not just live strictly off of referrals, several months after creating my company, I teamed up with a SEO Specialist from Turkey, and former client, to build a WordPress site in order to gradually increase the amount of organic traffic. Today, I have 2 others working with me to keep up with the growing demand for our Resumes, and I am proud of the success my business has had. All the funding for my business has come directly from me, without the assistance of anyone, or any bank. What started as a freelance opportunity to earn some income while looking for a job, eventually turned into the full-time Resume business I have today.
The moral of the story is that even though I took 32 years of my life to learn what I was supposed to do, and had many rejections along the way, I can finally say that I am content with my career. If I was to estimate how many jobs I’ve held, I’d say upwards of 60 or so different jobs with different companies. While I am okay with having faced so many struggles, I am not okay with other people struggling to land interviews and find ways around the ATS systems. I have learned how to construct better Resumes that are ATS friendly, and land clients more interviews. Even though there have been struggles and sacrifices along the way, I love what I do, and anyone who works with me and my company will see the passion I have for doing everything in my power to land my clients interviews.
