The purpose of a resume is to establish yourself as a viable candidate for the job you are seeking.

You made the right decision to get a professional résumé writer to help ​you, but how can Veteran Mentors help you land the job you want?

 

What if you are on the fence about the job you are pursuing? What if you need time to discover more about an industry to ensure it is a good fit?

 

Studies show that transitioning into a new career is one of the top stressors in life, right next to divorce, death, moving, and planning a marriage!

 

In my experience, building a GREAT résumé is NOT the most challenging part of job seeking. The MOST difficult and often overlooked part is: taking the time to find an azimuth, make a plan, and stay the course!  

 

This is where I come in... This is where having a trusted partner makes all the difference! I sit with you, I LISTEN to you and build your résumé based on what YOU want, what YOU know, and how I can make it fit. In other words... We figure it out- TOGETHER!

  • If you are a recent graduate- Welcome!

  • If you are in a mid or senior role and NEED a new challenge- Welcome!

  • If you are exiting the military and need a fresh perspective from someone that’s been in your boots- Welcome! Welcome! Welcome! 

YOUR skill sets are valuable; you know it, and so do the ones who know you best. But what about the people who haven’t had a chance to appreciate you? What about all the missed career opportunities that you were perfect for?

 

I am here to help you portray your skill sets in a compelling way so you can show hiring managers your worth. You owe it to yourself to show "them" you are not just another candidate- YOU ARE THE PERFECT CANDIDATE!
