This review is long overdue. I inquired about YES resume writing and interview skills training several months ago because I had been wanting to resign from my then current job for about two years. I reached out to YES and one other business that I found on Yelp. The other business didn’t have any availability for about three days. On the other hand, I was able to set something up with Katherine from YES for the next day. We did a telephone consultation and I chose a package that included resume, thank you letter, and cover letter as well as interview aikido!
I thought I was a great resume writer but after seeing what Katherine and the YES team produced, I wished I would have thought about hiring them sooner. She used information and very detailed examples that I provided in an assessment/questionnaire to create my perfect resume.
I had my sessions with Michael. They were really useful for not only job searching but everyday life in general. I could apply our discussions to any relationship. One of my favorite things was ranking what I value most in my career. It allowed me to look at job opportunity with a fine-tuned lens so that I could eliminate those opportunities that wouldn’t make me happy because they weren’t consistent with my values.
YES highly recommended networking, so another great thing that they do is put you in touch with their contacts that they think can help connect you which was very helpful. Michael always said that most jobs come from networking as opposed to applying online and he was right because that’s where mine came from.
