intResume = International Résumés (and CVs, and more)
Globally focused, borderless: this service is unique in the world. About 99.9% of résumé writing and career preparation services are based in English-speaking countries and geared to their local market, even if they say otherwise. Their knowledge of the global job market is based on what they read, or on arrogant assumption. I’ve lived and worked around the world with high-level professionals. My global knowledge is experience-based and formally trained.
I make customized résumés, CVs, and online job profiles for anyone, but primarily for non-native speakers of English. My job is to market you in the global market. This is very different from an American applying for a job in New York or an Australian applying for a job in Sydney.
You want a new job or want to get into a great school. If you want to work for a foreign company or apply to a foreign school, you have an extra challenge: “translate” your home-country experience for people in other countries. If they don’t understand who you are and what you can do, you won’t get that job or get into that school. Together we’ll not only make you understood, we’ll make you shine!
I am the only native English speaking CPRW in Japan, and one of only two in North Asia. I have worked with numerous professionals and students to customize résumés and CVs, as well as online profiles and academic applications, that fulfill the very specific and unique challenges of international applicants.
“I am happy to let you use my before and after CV/résumé as an example because it was a remarkable experience to work with you. You were one of the most expensive Certified Professional Resume Writers from which I got initial feedback, but I felt you were the right person. You were definitely different! You had deep expertise of my request, were honest with my approach and decisions, mentored me, and I learned a great deal as well! I wish to have such a mentor.”
I was reasonably confident in my resume since it had already helped me obtain a fantastic position at a prestigious company. However, I knew it still had room for improvement. I sought out a resume consultant who would go further than just polish my writing. I needed strategic advice from someone who could understand my career objectives. Adam took the time to discuss my ambitions, genuinely understand my professional experience, and then worked with me to shape my CV into something stellar. He then stuck with me through several rounds of revisions until we were both convinced we had a world-class resume. It was definitely worth the time and money!
Searching for a job in another company and country needs a strategy and it requires good allocation of resources. I knew my resume/CV was not great. But I didn’t have time and ability to take on this task myself. I decided to get expert help. My close friend recommended Adam, saying his service is worth far more than the cost.I fully agree and my resume impressed a few people (enough for me to get a job in short period). I recommend him to all my good friends.
