Career Services told me there was nothing I could do

“This much a better plan than what I had before! When I talked to Career Services, they basically told me there was nothing I could do to look for a job while I wait for the bar exam results. But you’ve already outlined a lot of logical things I could be doing to be a better candidate and look for a job. And that makes so much more sense to me, because doing nothing but sitting around makes *no* sense.”

it flows more naturally

“Both the résumé and cover letter tell my story with a better approach and bring in my backstory. The way everything’s structured seems to flow a lot better now. I *love* what you did to edit my cover letter. It’s like the story I had, but it flows more naturally and it’s just laid out beautifully. It’s not as choppy anymore; it's just very smooth.​”

I’m kicking myself

“I’m kicking myself because I feel like this is something I should have done a long time ago. I just get such anxiety thinking about my résumé and looking for a job. It’s so helpful to finally get this done. Just talking through all this has been helpful. Even the way you’ve set the résumé and cover letter up, and the way you’re describing what I’ve done, it’s just something I would never have thought of. Thank you so much.”

I agree with everything you just said
