"Nice eye opener. Very well laid out, she is funny, but gets to the point. She helps you adjust your resume while you watch the videos. Super helpful, so that by the end of the course you have a super improved resume that will be noticed! Katie hits the spot. Thank you!" -Berry

Writing your Future:

Your Resume is a powerful career marketing tool; thus, your resume should be a persuasive marketing piece and not a dull career biography.

Don't let your resume go unnoticed: take charge, and follow this course to learn how to get your foot in the door and market your greatest commodity: yourself. 

I have heard many say, "I have applied for several jobs, but I don't have any interviews lined up." It all begins with your cover letter and resume. While I do not always get the job, I have always gotten the interview, even over those more skilled than I. Why? Because resume writing is an art, and I have learned that art.

Learn from a Professional:

I developed this course because I know the job hunt can be a real struggle, so I wanted to ease some of the burden by walking you through how to create an amazing resume. As a former English teacher, I specialized in teaching the art of writing. And now, I work as an editor, content writer, professional resume writer, and tutor. 

I have helped numerous people write effective resumes, and I am excited to help you, which is why I worked hard to complete this course despite being very pregnant during the filming. I encourage you to ask questions and be an active learner. I am here for you and happy to provide you individualized feedback!

Overview of the Course Contents--What you will Learn:

In 28 short lectures, you will learn how to revise, write, design, and format your resume in the best way possible to sell yourself. Selling yourself is what you need to do daily: you sell yourself to your date, your boss, your child, your prospective employee, your friend, and even to yourself!

  • General Knowledge: words to avoid, how to show not tell your skills, and how to write with flair
  • Content: what to include and what not to include, how to sell your unique skills, and how to write each section
  • Design and Layout: general guidelines, use of formatting, and samples
  • Bonus Section: watch me transform a resume from start to finish and learn how I can help you further

The other resume courses give good resume tips, but they also focus on other aspects of the job hunt; this course is focused SOLELY on resume writing, so it is a complete comprehensive guide, giving you more in-depth guidance on the art of resume writing.

After taking this course, you will be able to build a professional resume that will help you stand out from the crowd, getting your foot in the door and landing interviews. 

An investment in your career is an investment in yourself. Don’t procrastinate. There is no time like the present to take charge of your career. Take this course and start your job hunt in the most effective way.

And remember that once you purchased the course, you will have lifetime access to the course. Additionally, you also have a 30-day money back guarantee if you aren't 100% satisfied with this course. Enroll now and start creating the future you want.

I thought this course was terrific. Katie is already an educator and she uses it to her advantage by creating clear, detailed, easy to follow instructions. I especially liked her tip to turn on the captions to follow along. Be sure to do this because some sections have poor audio. I also followed her tip to take notes (by hand) and then I transcribed the notes for myself later to help reinforce the information.

Madeline11 February 2021

Though I'm a bit overwhelmed by how much work my resume needs because the presenter and the course are showing a more effective means of making mine more engaging and truly unique to my skill set and strengths - easily.

Justin13 November 2020

Katie is an excellent communicator / presenter with an ability to break down each section and clearly explain the appropriate approach. Using her lessons I've revised my resume to highlight my story, experience and accomplishments. Very good course!

Salina12 June 2020

Presenter/Lecturer disseminated information in a clear, concise and coherent format without the use of industry jargon which may have been difficult to grasp if unfamiliar (as many students like myself will be if they have no prior knowledge/idea of course taken). Section time was well organised and content was never boring or overloaded. I totally enjoyed the course content and found it to be relevant and applicable. The actual Resume Transformation section was especially appreciated. Will definitely recommend.

Dalida12 June 2020

The course is perfect for people who are writing their first resume. I would have liked to see an actual resume being put together from beginning to send with different templates.

Lynda25 April 2020

Great content and attention to detail. I write resumes for my business and it's good to take these courses to stay in the know, stay up-to-date. Thanks for your insight and tips! PS. Some of your videos were very hard to hear even with my sound at 100% and the video also at the full sound. Thanks again

Brendan14 April 2020

The course is fantastic! Very easy to follow along with and concepts all make sense and are easy to apply! Very happy I purchased this course!

Xavier11 April 2020

Excellent. after watching this video I learned that my current resume needs to be revise. Thanks for this step-by-step guide

Alison4 April 2020

Thank you for this course. It really helped me. I've been struggling with resume writing for years and this course had so many great tips that I'll use forever. I feel so comfortable with resume writing now! Thank you <3

Darrell17 March 2020

The content contains some useful points, but a lot of it is common sense. The presentation isn't as smooth and well delivered as some of the other courses I've seen and there is no consistency between the format of each video.

Juno9 March 2020

Katie gave a lot of insightful tips on improving your resume. I was amazed upon doing a side-by-side comparison of what my resume had looked like before taking this course and what it looks like now that I've completed it. Admittedly, I'm also frankly a little embarrassed that I had shown anyone my old resume. In addition to the course content, Katie's enthusiasm helped keep the course engaging and easy to go through. I'm overall very happy with it and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to spruce up their resume!

Peter30 January 2020

I've been having a major problem in my career fully expressing my skills and abilities and I feel that with this course, I finally have a stronger grip on what I've been doing wrong and also how to get better. I would have been walking around in the dark for a lot longer if I had never taken this fantastic course!
