I wonder….

I wonder if people would pay me to write kick ass resumes and cover letters, as well as for Career Counselling advice. I do that now for the company I work for. It’s not a conflict of interest because I don’t get paid on a client by client basis right now, but just salary, and the service is free to unemployed person’s in the community, Government funded. I was thinking I would target business proffesionals debating a career change, exploring their options before making the leep…

HHMMMMM I just don’t know were to begin. Maybe Kijiji 🙂

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. That’s a great idea and a wonderful start! I say go for it and list your services on Kijiji – if anything, other opportunities come knocking when you put yourself out there!
    You are so capable. Something will come up!

  2. Ooh smart idea!! Try to look for jobs in SEO and SEM, like pay per post, or pay per click things.
    They may be hard to find, but the are out there and don’t take a lot of time to do. It’s companies wanting to rank their businesses on Google higher, so they have people just post on forums or click on ads. It sounds scamful and fake, and well 1. it is scamful, but 2. not fake. My company does it allll the time.

    • I would so do anything at this point.
      I was doing pay per post. They fired me in the fall when they tighened their reigns. Said I didn’t have enough site traffic and/or my google ranking wasen’t high enough.
      I am signed up to do like a billion survey’s for cash though, but the opportunities are often scarce so far…I am so flexible and willing to work for the damn money.

    • What does SEM and SEO mean?

      • Search engine marketing, search engine optimization. People pay money to have their sites ranked high on google, and to get your site ranked high on google, people have to click your ads, so they pay people to click their ads.

  3. That’s a really good idea; I’ve considered it before. You’d be surprised how many people don’t know how to construct a good cover letter/resume.

  4. Actually, I suck at resumes and i font have anything impressive to put on one. i’ll pay you to write me an awesome one that might help me get a “Real” job. For sure.

    • font, lol. i meant dont.

      • Ya well you are in just as bad shape financially as we are lady 🙂 I don’t want to take money from poor people. I would do you up a resume for free though.
        Send me what you have now in terms of what you have done and were and when and the education you have.
        As well as what kinds of things you would like to do/would consider applying for. if you want even send me some actual job postings of jobs you want to apply for in your area and I will use them to write the resume and cover letter for you.
        If you get a good job as a result, then we can talk payment haha.

      • BUT i get my tax refund soon, which will be over $1000.00. and if it helps me get a better job that i can actually consider a career that will better myself and my child, I would consider it money well spent.
