many years ago I thought I would do resume writing for a living it took one

some people find some jobs as an ancillary to resume right it's like
where do they make their money how do they spend their time and when you look

what that stands for, folks? Resume writer! And, for them, I'm sure that
they are very very good at that but understand coaching is an upsell for
them. They're trying to do the resume and the LinkedIn profile and maybe pick up some
coaching work I'll just simply say I have no interest in resume writing on a
critique a resume. I'll tell you how it needs to improve but I'm not going to
write a resume for you and most of the job search and career coaches I know are
much the same way. They're not looking to write a resume,
write a LinkedIn profile. Understand, I'm. LinkedIn number 7653. I know the
platform very well but I don't write. LinkedIn profiles I don't write resumes
I help people find work as they did from. Morty more than 40 years in search so
