Greetings,
I am in desperate need of a job.  However, companies don’t seem to be responding to my resume and cover letter.   I could definitely use your help.  Are you still offering this service?  Please let me know.

Thanks,

Hi Kara!
Thanks for responding.  I’m really hoping that you can offer me some assistance.  To be honest, I don’t have much to put on a resume.  I’ve done some custodial work and once worked part time at a nearby supermarket.  However, my resume says that I’ve worked as a personal banker, an advertising account executive, and a marketing strategist.  My biggest problem is that whenever I’m called in for an interview,  I have a difficult time answering the employer’s questions. I don’t know much about banking or advertising.   Do you think you can teach me a bit, so I’ll perform better in interviews?   I have great communication skills, and I’m fairly proficient with Microsoft products.   Let me know.  I really appreciate it.

Thanks,
RP

Hi,

Have you been those titles/positions before in advertising or marketing? You cannot lie on a resume. It is a documentation of al the work you have performed/provided. When are you available to meet?

Hi again,
I think I understand what you are getting at.  Like I said, I have done some custodial work, but changed “custodian” to “marketing strategist” on my resume.  I also changed “stock clerk” to advertising executive” I felt that it sounded far more professional and might allow me to get my foot in the door at a respected company.  When I finally do get my foot in the door, I seem to struggle during the interview process.  What do you think?   I always present myself well.  I usually wear a suit, though sometimes I opt not to wear a tie.  I almost always wear socks and a belt.  I also have a little man-purse that I use to carry my documents.  I’m not sure what the problem is.  Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanks,
RP
