We're proof that discipline doesn't cramp creativity.
Just wanted to send you an update with some great news - I am starting my new job with ... this coming Monday! Thanks for all your help. I'll fill you in on all of the exciting details of the last few months soon. Sandy A.
My name is Sharon Landis, I’m a professional resume writer and resume coach.
Most people that I speak to are able to write their own resume. After all, they are professionals.
What they'd really like, and can't create, is a resume that sings.
Typically, they can’t express what they have to say about themselves in resume language.
On top of this, they have so much information that it's difficult to capture all of it, never mind organize.
Does any of this sound familiar?
Be that as it may, they take their resumes to market with a nagging feeling that a better resume would get better job search results.
This notion is quickly zapped from their busy minds, and they get moving.
For some, things go better than planned.
For the rest, there's a long disappointing job search.
They do have in-demand skills and experience. But they can’t communicate this to target employers.
Sure, they can stay where they are, or take a less than ideal job.
But... and... but... but... and... etc. etc.
"Perfect doubt" about finding a better job sets in.
This is exactly what I help people overcome.
After interviewing a great deal (including my top picks) over the summer months, I was offered a position and transitioned this fall. It worked out incredibly, because I was in a position to have my pick of jobs. I could not have done it without you, so thank you so much. Alexis S.
Sharon has helped me to improve my resume 100 %, I had to spend just two months to get a job in Canada and even now I have been receiving job offers from Canada and US. I recommend 100 % to Sharon Landis. Daniel H.
I help clients write resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn profiles, executive summaries, value propositions, objective statements, and other application documentation.
And, at the same time, this happens:
When you change what you write about yourself,
Even though I specialize in a specific group of job seekers, you're all different.
And, all my clients feel like they are my only client.
I have a method.
Just in case you're thinking: "is she throwing 'method' out there because it sounds good?"
No way! 25 years in IT taught me about creating methods, simplify complexity, and writing documentation that gets read.
Typically when I start working with a client everything is jumbled together: contributions, skills, mundane tasks, and accomplishments.
First we unpack the bundle.
Then we put your story back together, so that it's organized to support your job search.
Then, you're ready to talk to employers dealing with different scenarios.
This takes place in-person in Etobicoke, or by phone. Follow-up conversations are by phone or email.
Resume writing is in "Done For You" or "Done With You" format. When it makes sense, I use a mix of DFY and DWY.
DFY: I write and you give me feedback.
DWY: You write and I give you feedback.
Your fantastic work on my resume lit a fire in me today to check out postings. With your abilities, you've given me a confidence, a wonderful tool set to use for my career search and even some internal reflection / acknowledgement that I otherwise would not have had. Felise L.
Great resume! Thank you Sharon for providing an amazing experience. You made the process of reviewing and then providing a professional polished resume seem effortless. You were thoughtful with your suggestions and extremely efficient. I will certainly contact you in the future. Derek C.
"Sharon, what kind of resumes have you written?"
The full industry-profession breakdown looks like a maze.
I mean, how many different areas can an electrical engineer work in? Or a project manager? Or a project manager who's an electrical engineer?
Instead of the full breakdown, here is a summary of areas. If you'd like more granularity, please get in touch.
Let's talk about what's happening in your job search and I'll explain how I can help.
Then you can decide if you want to move forward.
