A good resume does more than make you look good. It helps you land interviews, so you can really show what you’ve got. Sometimes it’s so good, you tell everyone you know about it.
That often happens with my clients. I write what they need, they land interviews and ultimately jobs, and then they tell their friends. This leads to more great people having interview opportunities and landing more jobs.
One of these referrals is particularly exciting, as it involved a father and son. (And everyone loves a good father-son tale, right?)
Second Generation Resumes
Unlike the father, the son wasn’t looking for a full-time job. He was shooting for an aerospace engineering internship that would help propel him into a successful career post-graduation.
Because he was still in college, we modified his resume and emphasized his relevant coursework, while also listing his employment history.
The goal of the son’s resume was to show that while young and inexperienced, he was the perfect candidate to intern with NASA. So I learned about his background, coursework, and employment and framed the resume in a way that helped NASA see that he was prepared for whatever challenges he would face with them.
It was an awesome experience working for this father-son duo, and I hope to one day create a resume for another generation in that family.
I’m humbled every time someone trusts me with their resume. To realize I may have helped send someone to another planet?
Out of this world.
