Step One to Getting Your Edge for Success

Watch YES President Katherine Metres Akbar on The Top 5 Resume, LinkedIn, and Interview Strategies for Job Search Success.

Peter M.

Senior Operations Director

After being unemployed for 5 months and filling out several dozen job applications I constantly wondered why I wasn’t receiving any phone calls or interviews from employers. I’ve worked since I was 16 years old and being in this position was both hurtful and depressing.

A few weeks after I first made the phone call to YES, I received my new resume, cover, and thank you letter. Within two hours of submitting my application for one of the positions I received a call! I scheduled an interview practice soon after.  First thing the morning after my interview I received a phone call with a job offer! Thanks to Katherine and her team for all of their help, hard work, and assistance during this process.
