Looking to shorten your job search? As a career coach and resume writer, many of my clients come to me when they need a job. Perhaps they have been laid off, or their firm closed, or they were unable to land a summer internship. At that point, they're already playing catch-up. A great resume is important, but it's not a silver bullet. It can't single-handedly land you the position of a lifetime. There's still a lot of work that you need to do. And, unfortunately for those playing catch-up, a lot of that work is investment in time and energy that are best done before you need a resume.
