"Please let us know when you will have time in the early fall to talk with our daughter about college interviewing. You may remember that you helped our son prepare for his interviews a few years ago. Your two prep sessions boosted his confidence and thus his ability to present well during his college interviews. As you predicted, his skills got better with each interview. We look forward to working with you again. "

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a professional to write my resume?

The typical recruitment professional will decide in about 5 seconds whether your resume is worth an interview. Because we are initial decision makers in our companies, our Resume Boutique recruitment professionals know how to present your resume to grab the reader in that first 5 seconds.

Can you guarantee that my resume won't be too flashy or too over the top? I don't want it to look like someone else wrote it.

The Resume Boutique philosophy is that "simple is better." We do not write flashy or over the top resumes that oversell the applicant. We believe that the format of your resume is as important as its substance. So, from us you will get reader-friendly, well-articulated resumes that sound like you.

Can we speak on the phone before I decide whether to use your services?

I am looking for my second job in my second career and I have a very eclectic resume. Can you help me? I can't figure out how to present my experience?

Yes, we can help you. When we work with second career professionals or seasoned professionals with significant work experience, we ask a lot of questions first. We try to identify the positions you seek. That will help us revise your resume to attract a particular audience. Together, we will determine how to best present your work experience. We'll highlight your strengths and eliminate the clutter. If you are casting a wide net, we may prepare two slightly different resumes.

My son is a high school student. Does he need a resume?

Your son may need a resume if he is applying for a job or an internship. Some colleges require a resume to be submitted with the student's application. More commonly, high school students will attach an Activities List to their college applications. This list presents in an organized way their participation in sports, student government, the arts, community service, internships, and paid work experience. We work with college applicants and their parents to prepare this list.

I have been out of the workforce for 15 years raising my children and I want to go back to work. I don't know where to start. Can you help me?

When you've been out of the workforce for a period of time, your resume needs to reflect your prior work history and any volunteer work in which you have participated. We can help you properly position yourself on your resume and help you package your story for your interview. The more you prepare, the more comfortable you will feel about interviewing in a professional setting again.
