You are my Marie Kondo

“​I do want to compliment you on doing a really great job on my CV, CV addendum, and LinkedIn. It’s been so great to have your broader perspective. You are my Marie Kondo—you’ve really decluttered my long, varied career history. This has been incredible and I’ve really appreciated your help in bringing me into the modern age. And if you ever need a review let me know.”

Every word has value.

“I’ve got to tell you, I like the career portfolio [CV, CV addendum, and cover letter] a lot. I’m pleased with all of it. I like the structure. I like the way you broke the information up and used bullets, and I like your wording. The CV has impact from the first page. And I can see you really did your homework. I don’t know how you did it, but you worked it! Every word has value. Trying to do it myself was a fool’s errand.

The cover letter is also a really, really helpful tool that I will be able to build on for future applications. It sets out a structure and lets me know how and where to add information for different job applications.

And I already got great feedback from the retained recruiter. You did everything I needed and I’m in a really good place.”

I’m changing how I think about myself so that I’m now thinking and talking about my value and the impact that I’ve had. The résumé was excellent and I’m excited.”
