I love what I do as my work is social in nature. I interview all of my clients who hail from all walks of life and locations all over the world. During these meetings we have profound conversations as I write their new resumes/CVs in real-time, sharing my screen with them via Zoom so they can observe the new document as it is being built and collaborate on the process. I've refined resume/CV writing down to a science and it takes me 1.5 hours maximum to create a compelling document. The results speak for themselves as many of my clients have achieved their goals.
September marks one year of this being my full-time job instead of a side hustle, and I am grateful to have a job that I derive meaning from, which in turn helps others find work that they themselves can derive meaning from.
During the initial stages of the COVID19 lockdown, I gave free resume/Linkedin advice to workers who abruptly lost their jobs in this thread. I ended up giving feedback to 70 Redditors, and in the months that followed, gained 20 paid clients from Reddit, and am grateful that this community has embraced my concept.
I would be happy to advise more Redditors in this AMA on how to market themselves to their next employer.
UPDATE 1: Hi all! Thank you to everyone who participated in this AMA! I want to give a special thanks to the handful of haters for keeping me sharp. It is because of you that I know I've made it.
I hope that the knowledge gained here will be an asset to everyone here moving forward. To those of you who have connected with me to access my services, I will try to respond to most/all of the inquiries and booking requests over the course of the next week. This AMA has gained me an unprecedented influx of inquiries and has allowed me to access communities that I would not have been able to reach otherwise. I am quite grateful.
