an approach and process to move forward

“I do think this has all been helpful. You’ve given me an approach and process to move forward. All the things we’ve been discussing—that’s why I don’t have a résumé.

a completely different approach

“It’s a completely different approach than I’ve been taught, but I totally understand the method. It makes 100% sense and it’s totally clear. I feel so much better about my prospects and my plan of attack after working with you. It’s making me think about what I need to do to prepare for a job interview, to make sure I can reframe what I do. I’m loving this.”
