Register ~ FREE Resume Clinic in Cleveland ~ March 2

~ More great resources in keeping with Nanci’s book Fresh Hope … Cleveland

FREE Resume Review Clinic on March 2, 2013

Is your resume getting results?

REGISTER now to have your resume reviewed by a professional.

What:    Chagrin Valley Job Seekers (CVJS) Resume Review Clinic

When:    Saturday, March 2nd

Time:     9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (you will be assigned a specific time slot)

Where:  Pioneer Memorial Presbyterian Church (same place as the CVJS meetings.)


Send an e-mail to Greg Reynolds at with Resume Review Clinic in the subject line.

Here are eight reasons to invest in yourself by registering for the resume review clinic:

1.      You are just starting your job search and need a resume.

2.      You are stuck in your job search.

3.      You are currently employed, but worried your department may be reorganized or the company may be sold this year.

4.      You are currently employed but underutilized and need to check out the job market.

5.      You have already had your resume reviewed by a CVJS Resume Reviewer.

6.      You had professional assistance from a career consultant at an outplacement firm.

7.      You are perfectly happy with the resume you have.

8.      You are happily employed and have no intention of making a job change.

So, you may be thinking, “Okay, reasons 1 through 4 make perfect sense, but I am not so sure about 5 through 8.  Why would I want to show up at the clinic if I have already had my resume reviewed by a CVJS Resume Reviewer or had professional assistance at an outplacement firm?  And I can’t imagine why I would go the clinic if I am perfectly happy with my current resume or my job.”

Well, consider this: The volunteers who assist at the CVJS Resume Review Clinic include HR professionals, recruiters from search firms, corporate recruiters and career consultants from outplacement firms.  Were you perfectly satisfied with your last job before your last job was eliminated?  Wouldn’t it make sense to expand your network while getting resume advice from a professional?

Remember at work and in life:  It’s not who you know…It’s who knows you.

No job seeker should miss this free opportunity to have their resume critiqued by an expert.

You must pre-register to reserve a meeting with a resume reviewer on March 2nd.

To register, send an email to Greg Reynolds at with Resume Review Clinic in the subject line. Give us your name and phone number in the body of the e-mail. Once you have registered, we will send you details of the day.

I hope this is information is helpful! Make is a great day!

God Bless You!

All I Want For Christmas is a Job!

~ More helpful resources in keeping with the theme of Nanci’s new book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.

Dear Santa,

I’ve been really good this year and I do have one really important and very necessary request. Please fill my stocking with a good job – one I’ll like, pays a good salary, at a place where I can contribute in a meaningful way, and some place where I’ll be able to use my skills and talents. I promise I’ll work hard and I won’t complain. Thank you!

Signed Unemployed

P.S. I also have a request in with God.


Dear Friend,

Let’s face it, the holiday season beginning at Thanksgiving on through the winter months can be tough to navigate for those getting divorced, those with illness, families helping an ill loved one, those missing loved ones, and for those unemployed. So below I’ve listed a link to a great website that lists some great advice for those who are job hunting this holiday. If you are unemployed, yes, you should still be searching for a job during the holiday season. Please check out the website below. Some of them share valuable information on how to change careers especially if very little hiring is being done in your area of expertise. I hope it helps you in many ways.

Links to helpful employment information and on changing careers:


Make it a great day!

God Bless You!
