I've experienced exactly the nervousness of not knowing how to best convey my non-traditional education and skills, and the confusion of feeling as though the employer and I simply spoke different languages. I’ve felt the discouragement of knowing deep down inside that I could do the job, but not being considered based on my lack of credentials or inability to communicate my skills effectively. I know how scary it can be to have an unusual story, and not know how to tell it.

It can feel like being lost and alone, without a map, in a big unfamiliar city.

Fortunately, I’ve also been the interviewer.

I’ve learned what employers want to know about a candidate, and how to communicate it effectively.

I can use my background and skills to help you.

Without a thoughtful résumé and cover letter as the key, you simply cannot unlock the door to most mainstream hiring opportunities. Having the right career documents is a first step to building your confidence as a job-seeker, and it’s also the first step in almost any job application or interview process.

It can be intimidating to try to figure it all out on your own, but I can help translate your unique story into appealing, customized career documents, and help you prepare for interviews and employment opportunities.
