As a resume writer, I spend
from 2-4 hours with each person developing their resumes and find that
time and again, that all job seekers have such feelings. Therefore, my
newest booklets - Proven Resumes: Strategies That Have
Increased Salaries and Changed Lives! and Cover
Letters That Have Increased Salaries provide many examples of
situations where job seekers doubted their skills--yet by learning how
to identify and fully describe their skills--they experienced
significant leaps in their confidence levels! Plus they landed great
jobs and many times salary increases!
Here's another testimonial from Gina Meyers, who gives a much longer
testimonial about my materials in the video that I market with my
instructor transparency set:
book really motivates job seekers. One of my students piped up in class
and said, "I bought the book two weeks ago and have already read it. It
is wonderful. I was feeling bummed out and couldn't find a job and felt
like I didn't have any skills. Then I started reading this book and
couldn't put it down." It's
getting started that's so hard for job seekers but this book makes it
easy. The questions and examples really help people pull out and
identify their best skills and this builds confidence and motivation...
plus it lands jobs! Gina Meyers, Counselor/Instructor
My newest book, Proven Resumes: Strategies
That Have Increased Salaries! is a great confidence builder
as it contains dozens and dozens of success stories and before and
after examples that job seekers find very motivating. It also
contains a complete chapter on self-confidence building that many job
seekers need when they find that their self-confidence is low!
Just this week I received a call from a man who had downloaded this
book and I was really touched by what he had to say and how specific he
was. In the 2nd chapter of Proven Resumes: Strategies
That Have Increased Salaries! I talk briefly about my own
childhood. I grew up in a very dysfunctional family and was ridiculed
daily often being told things like, "You're dumb. You'll never succeed.
Can't you do anything right?" These daily admonitions affected me
deeply and resulted in my having very low self-confidence for many
years. Like many people, I thought I
was the only one who felt this way and thought I should be able to
magically feel more confident.
As I began writing resumes with job seekers and spending 2-3 hours with
each one, I was quite surprised to see
that many of them had similar feelings. The
way I could identify feelings of self-doubt in the people I worked with
was hearing statements like, "Oh, I couldn't say that - I really don't
have those skills (although they did)." Or, something like, "I don't
think I really have any skills."
Having been so keenly aware of my own feelings, I realized I had a
burning desire to help other people feel better about themselves and in
the process, of course, help them write better resumes. I've been truly
touched by so many people who have written me via e-mail and shared how
much the 2nd chapter of my book has helped them.
I find it extraordinary that someone, like the man I just mentioned,
will take the time (and invest his own money) to call my office and
relay how much my book has meant to him. Plus go on to tell us how it
has helped his mother realize she has good skills as well as
recommending my site and book to several other people. Then saying that
they've all come back and told him that the book is the best resume
book they've ever read and they feel it's also changing their lives! As you
can imagine, his story put a huge smile of happiness on my face. I feel
very privileged to be able to help other people in this way!
If you are in need of building your confidence, I
can honestly say that my Increase Salaries booklets are proven to help
job seekers build their confidence and can do this for you too! The
benefit you can gain from purchasing this book far outweighs it's cost!
We've reached the end of my Top 12 Workshops - those workshops that I
feel are most important in illustrating what my materials include and
can do for you! As you've learned, my
materials really are innovative. They blend proven advertising and
marketing strategies with an understanding of how many job seekers feel
as the write resumes and move through their job search. Whether
it's examples like Fran who felt more comfortable weakening her resume
(but then changing it once she saw that it lowered her image and salary
level by $9,000) or the man I mentioned above who called to say how
much he enjoyed the book, these materials really do have well
documented history of success.
I hope that you'll consider purchasing all three
of my Increase Salaries booklets as I feel they provide the best I have
to offer you!
If you are in one of the fields the
career-specific booklets are written for, I also encourage to buy one
that matches your career field. This
combination will provide you with all of my most innovative strategies
plus you'll have resume examples that use skills and keyword headings
geared just for your career field.
Good luck on your journey and my best wishes in
