The most effective resumes capture who the client is, what they want to do, and why they are qualified for the role — but getting the answers to those questions isn’t easy. Collecting better information can help you write better resumes.
Take this course and you’ll learn:
- The one question to ask yourself before starting writing that will save you hours of frustration.
- Which questions you can ask that will reduce the amount of time it takes you to write the resume – while simultaneously improving the effectiveness of the resume you’re writing.
- When you’re stuck: The three questions you need to ask yourself if you’re having trouble moving forward with a client project.
- The one thing you must ask so that your client is happy with the finished resume (if you neglect to get the answer to this question, you’re guaranteed a rewrite).
The handouts will include the exact questions you can ask. This course is designed for newbies and veteran résumé writers alike, but the emphasis is on resume writers struggling to get good information from clients in the information-gathering phase.
Whether you work via questionnaire, phone consultation, in-person (or a combination of both), your information-gathering process not only impacts the finished résumé project, but also your revenue.
