About This Class

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Your resume is your opportunity to showcase your BEST stuff to recruiters and hiring mangers and your LinkedIn profile focuses on your BEST highlights from your resume.  Yet, most resumes have one of these issues: 1) Poor formatting 2) Lacking accomplishments 3) Reads like a job description.  And, most LinkedIn profiles include too much or too little information to showcase your BEST work.

A Few Testimonials:

"Kara's advice to look at what we've already done, and identify when and where and by what that spark of interest and energy ignited, and to build on that recognition instead of focusing forward into that fog--well, for me it's a whole new way of thinking." Wendy

"Working with Kara was an absolute pleasure.  Her attitude is fun while maintaining a high level of professionalism.  Not only did I come away with an A+ resume, I gained a massive amount of confidence on how to present myself to future employers.  I can honestly say my resume now communicates the nearly decades worth of work I have accomplished throughout my career in a concise document that expresses my true talents!"  Mike B
