I tweeted this over a month ago:
The backstory for this tweet is that due to being the most senior person at my job, I help make staffing decisions. I also have experience in recruitment. Unfortunately, we end up passing on resumes due to errors such a formatting or simple spelling mistakes. It’s disheartening to see someone with potential fall to the wayside without us having an opportunity to see their skills. I try to advocate on their behalf, but it does not always work. With the encouragement on my online pals and my family, I decided to actually move forward and try to be a resource for people.
Over the past month or so, I have been working on creating The Interview Advocate. My goal for The Interview Advocate to be an affordable option for job seekers looking to write or refresh their resumes/CVs. I also plan to write weekly blog posts on resume tips and career advice. I do not want to pressure anyone into anything, I just want to be of service and help write success stories.
I wanted to share what I have been up to, please feel free to spread the word.
Thank you ❤
