When I began my resume business, I quickly realized that most clients had problems that a resume alone couldn't always help them with. Sometimes, a person's career history is so complex, or they are encountering a particular job-change transition obstacle, that they require more job search strategy than a pretty piece of paper.
If you've ever had a break in your work history or you've transitioned to a different line of work; had difficulty remembering some straightforward, data-driven accomplishments you could mention; or have experienced any number of difficult situations that are difficult to portray in a positive light on a resume: you can relate. The resume is a necessity, but not the end-all-be-all solution to many career dilemmas. Yes, there is a way to put spin on these situations to make you shine in your final document. And yes, you absolutely need one to get hired. But eventually the employer will want to ask you tough questions in an interview, check you out on social media, or talk to your references. What to do then? Get some coaching with that resume! (Yes, you would like fries with that.)
