Well, all of the topics mentioned thus far (fear of failing the certification exam AND starting a new business) are all relevant to me and my current station in life, so I'm super excited for this discussion! I love a win-win situation
I would like to also pose a discussion on Resume Writer self-promotion tactics - more of a critique than a discussion. I'm growing weary of the cookie-cutter LinkedIn posts with the emojis and vague lists of ambiguous advice. Must we echo one another in canon so we appear relevant? I think there should be more collaborative work amongst resume writers.
We all get Resume Brain, right? All the verbs begin to sound dull and you forget the word for "to do a thing"? (The word was 'action' and yes, it's a real-life example)
I recently reached out to another PARW/CC member for a Resume "Consult" and it went really well! I needed help figuring out the piece of information I was missing that I needed to finish a project, and Alana helped, and I was able to finish. Do others do this? Or is it really just 1000000 individual islands (Resume Writers) all sort of out for themselves? (Or are only willing to help if you're not targeting their client base)....it's not like there's a shortage of people who need resumes.
But then again, I don't go for Executive-Level clients for various reasons which may involve socialism and anxiety (in no particular order).
Make of that what you will.
I'm here to learn and disrupt.
