Casey's Story

I just didn't feel confident sending my resume out. I knew I wasn't going to get any callbacks and I didn't know how to make it better.

About Casey

Experience

11+ years

Previous Job

Budget Management for the Arts

In a nutshell

Wanted to change industries, needed a resume that told a better story.

Challenge

Casey wanted to transition from one industry to another. She needed help highlighting the job skills she had that could translate when changing careers.

Casey had been working in the nonprofit world for awhile, and was looking to make a change to the financial services industry. She was eager to use her budget management experience, but was unsure how to play up her job skills in a way that would attract employers. Her original resume simply didn’t give recruiters a good idea of her career goals.

My writer was able to pull out a better story. When I saw the skills that she highlighted for me, I was able to think, ‘Oh right, I am good at that.’

How We Helped

Casey bought the Career Evolution package, which includes a resume, cover letter and two resume revisions. She was paired with a professional resume writer, Gemma, who worked with her to:

  • Figure out which job skills would be most valuable in her target career field.
  • Highlight these job skills throughout her professional summary and work experience.
  • Added proper keywords to ensure her resume would pass the recruiting software.

With the new resume, I feel more confident. I’m not great at talking about myself or promoting myself so it was great to have someone else do that.
