You’ve filled out an application for an internship. You have stocked it with glowing references to complement your many hours of community service, only to stop short upon reaching the “Work Experience” section. If you've just graduated from college, there is a chance that you have spent the last four years focusing on your grades rather than garnering the real-world experience that so many employers seem to want. You can't write "Four years of studying hard" as your most recent employer, but don’t worry. You can still snag those entry-level jobs and internships, with a little help from us.
Prospective employers care very little about where you have worked; whether you bused tables through school or worked third shift at a gas station will have little to no weight on their decision. Rather, your 40 hours a week at that gas station showcases your willingness - as well as your ability - to work. So, what if you are one who spent those 40 hours every week with your nose in textbooks rather than rubbing the grindstone? What if you were a student before anything else; spending perhaps even more than 40 hours every week researching and writing and revising and doing everything else your professor (who might as well be your boss) told you to do? Well, then, you have the same material to showcase.
You have put in the work and demonstrated the dedication, you may just need a slightly different light with which to show that. Let us help you find that light. Whether your interest is in healthcare, professional services, or education, we will ensure that your resume reaches all of the right people.
