Linkedin Fatigue is a real thing.
Blindly reaching out to everybody you (and your overbearing mother) know is exhausting.
Getting the “Circle back in the Spring when we are taking applicants” message is defeating.
While so much of your job search is determined by the higher powers of Human Resources, your resume is one thing that is completely in your control.
We know the word resume makes you reach for your "In case of Emergency Prozac," so we are making things a little easier for you. And your unmotivated friend who asks to see your resume for “inspiration.”
We sat down with Melissa Trager, founder of Resume All Day, a professional services company that works with young professionals on their resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn profiles, interviewing skills, undergraduate and Graduate School essay applications.
Melissa attended The University of Texas at Austin's McCombs School of Business and has professional experience working for three Fortune 500 companies.
In her free time, you can find her shopping, taking a reformer Pilates class, and eating Italian food.
Take advice from the career connoisseur herself, and stand out amongst all the other sorority girls trying to land that Incoming Buyer role at Bloomingdales.
