    This was a great meetup. Marilyn took some time to listen to my personal story and then provide both specific and general feedback on my resume and my approach to the job search. The way she applies her marketing background to the process of crafting/updating resumes yields eye-catching documents which communicate tangible results as well as an individual narrative. If you want to jazz up your personal branding seek her out.

    Here’s a neat trick we discussed. Take a skill or capability that is a strength. Instead of depending on your resume reader to figure out why they should be impressed, do this. With the capability on the left build a continuum of terms to the right. From capability proceed to application, to result, to impact of result, to benefit, to enduring value, etc. It may be helpful to recast your capabilities toward results and impact. You might also examine the results and impact in the context of job categories in which these are critical. For example if you have presented yourself as a writer in your resume, you might find that those news releases, flyers, events, and websites you have developed have made good use of your writing skills, and in the process you have also built a portfolio and have gained sufficient experience to move into brand management or marketing communications. Those positions may pay a more and you could end up with a satisfying career.
