At heart, I’m a teacher. My approach with all my clients is to be a supportive, educational guide.
I LOVE to teach and interact with my clients. I strive for – and have been told repeatedly by participants that I deliver – lively classes that hold interest while sharing vital information on job search topics.
Over 15 years I’ve taught job seekers in small – medium sized groups of entry level, mid-career and very experienced professionals on core topics such as:
- Resume Writing
- Interview Skills Group Practice
- Job Search Strategy & Tips
Does Your Resume Pass the Resume Scanner AND Human Tests?
Nowadays resume scanning software (ATS = applicant tracking systems / software) is often the first “gatekeeper” your resume will have to pass before a human will ever lay eyes on it.
Once it gets past the software, what is an employer looking for when they first glance over your resume?
Do you think they actually READ IT?
They don’t. Not at first.
You have to capture the reader’s attention QUICKLY in order for them to want to read more, and ultimately, invite you to interview.
This class goes over this, and more… I’m going to teach you how to REVIEW YOUR OWN RESUME, to evaluate whether any resume will likely “pass both tests” (computer & human), in depth, with a series of sample resumes to review and critique.

Do You Really NEED a Resume Writer? (or Can You Just “DIY” It?)

Additional Teaching Information
I’ve taught hundreds of groups of job seekers in workshops and classes I personally develop for specific group needs on topics such as:
- Resume Writing,
- Interview Skills,
- Cover and Thank You Letters, and
- Job Search techniques and strategies.
I’m really proud of earning consistently high ratings of “highly satisfied” in feedback from the workshop participants with comments such as:
The best part of the presentation was:
- “(presenter’s) personality; she was fun and grabbed attention.”
- “It was interactive, lively, and stimulating.”
- “She was clear and to the point.”
- “She is very animated, focused, and knowledgeable.”
- “You were interesting and informative.”
- “Presents well, good teacher, very clear, the whole thing was informative.”
- “The exercises, we were not just listening.”
- “The helpful information and sincere enthusiasm; the content was important and the rest was refreshing.”
- “I enjoyed the entire presentation, there is nothing I would change.”
- “Thank you, it was fun and worth my time.”
How I started teaching & training:
In my early career, you could find me out in the Florida woods doing hands-on teaching of environmental education topics to either children or adult groups.
I also facilitated non-competitive team building games for groups, and , life skills such as anger management and conflict resolution for teens and college students.
I enjoyed being an at-home tutor in the living room of an immigrant family teaching English as a Second Language.
Eventually, I segued all those teaching/training experiences into facilitating the job search related workshops I mentioned above.
Just like you, all my past experience comes together to mold and shape my presentation and teaching style now – interactive, hands-on, and fun!
