  • Hey Ambitious Professionals! It's Linda Raynier here. Today I'm doing another special

  • video and I'm going to be talking to Shavar, Top Notch Resume success student

  • of mine he was looking for a job for about six months and was unsuccessful

  • until he took the Top Notch Resume course and now has finally landed his

  • dream job offer which he's gonna tell you all about

  • so Shavar thank you so much for joining me here today

  • thank you so much for inviting me I'm actually happy to be here I'm excited to

  • chat with you and I'm excited for you to share your story what was your situation

  • before you took the Top Notch Resume course when you were searching for a job

  • what was the whole deal with that I say throughout my career I've had a hard

  • time selling myself in a resume I think a lot of us we learn in college in even

  • high school how to create like a basic resume just like the bullet points like

  • the very thin bullet planes in a one line career objective and we hold on to

  • that because that's all we know but for me that we didn't take me many

  • places if I'm being quite candid you know it's been a period of time after

  • graduate school being unemployed and not being able to get a job at all so any

  • job opportunity like that came for me I kind of took it and ran with it looking

  • for another job everybody came up about six to eight months ago

  • I'm currently a manager and I knew I did not want to stay on this course of being

  • a manager for the rest of my career I already want to get into a training

  • opportunity and eventually accept my own business so when I discovered your

  • resume writing course I was actually really excited because I was able to

  • learn how to sew myself everything you you said in your course was really just

  • spot-on my looking at the keywords and looking at you know those those action

  • items we're really helped me to learn how to sell myself a lot better so I'm

  • very thankful for your guidance throughout the course cuz I was able to

  • come up with a much better resume and now I'm able to not only help myself

  • also help others too a year ago I was like okay I know I want to move forward

  • now I want to move to California and have a new career how can I get

  • there what can I do and I was kind of feeling stuck like you know where do I

  • go what what can happen but thankfully I came across your YouTube channel and and

  • the rest is history what was the statistics in terms of when

  • you were looking for a job with your old resume how many interviews would land

  • you know with your new resume what was the success like what was sort of the

  • statistics my success rate back then my waiting to get a phone call I will send

  • resumes left and right to different agency he's looking to get there's a

  • callback for an interview and nothing will happen we're asked with your with

  • this new resume that I have to your program I got a job phone calls for

  • interviews from agencies in Washington DC and California so it really does work

  • I mean if you just have a strong resume and you know how to sell yourself based

  • on based on that resume you can you can go many places in your career so come

  • across your program and learning about looking for a good job posts and good

  • job descriptions and looking for those keywords and what that actually means

  • and the formula that really helped me out a lot so I know that you you have a

  • job offer now tell us a little bit about what that process was like just and how

  • you feel about it I am super excited so I'll be a trainer I'll be working with

  • health departments across the country they really saw that I have a lot of

  • experience based on how I saw myself in my resume so it really worked like

  • clockwork I knew what to expect it was very straightforward after my first

  • interview they call me in for a second and the second interview was again very

  • straightforward and and being a couple days afterwards I was give me a phone

  • call from an HR about you know the possibility of moving to the Bay Area

  • and I didn't want to get my hopes up too high cuz I'm gonna you know if they

  • could choose another candidate so who knows but early last week I got the

  • phone call with the offer so you know because of my resume and because of how

  • I sold myself in the interview they offer me the higher end

  • their salary range for this position which that never happened to me at all

  • in my career I've always been a person who would get the lower in other salary

  • range because I did not have enough experience so the fact that this

  • organization is not only offered me an opportunity in a field that I want to

  • get into you know my dream job but they also offered me to hire in the salary is

  • something that you know I'm just totally blown away by and totally grateful for

  • 100% that is amazing and congratulations Savard I love this story so I want to

  • take it back because you said before you were seen as someone who would always

  • get the lower end of the salary because they thought that you didn't have enough

  • experience because of the way that you sold yourself on your resume and in your

  • interviews I mean how do you feel now about yourself personally and

  • professionally knowing now the approach on how to really sell yourself on your

  • resume and your prospects for your career moving forward I now see that

  • offer a lot more value than I did before I think oftentimes for professionals if

  • you are in a work environment where you're being told either by each our or

  • your supervisor or some kind of upper management that you don't have enough

  • experience to get this certain paid pay increase or or salary you oftentimes

  • will kind of internalize that and personalize that to where it's Harvey to

  • feel like you have any value to offer another organization or company to get

  • the salary that you feel like you deserve and that's how I felt throughout

  • my career after doing your your course and seeing what I had on paper and

  • talking to other other colleagues that I was not working with people with this

  • resume like you know I'm looking to move to California and I say you know I don't

  • happen a lot of experience but I'm looking to learn and grow as I know you

  • have a ton of experience and and that helped me out as well so I was like well

  • maybe I do have more to offer maybe I should kind of reframe how I'm thinking

  • and not necessarily take heed or personalize some of the comments that

  • were made to me in the past about not having experience to give the kind of

  • salary day I feel like I deserve so when I got the call for this interview I just

  • said you know let me just going there sell myself based on the things I know

  • so I think I'm just really helped me to go into him

  • you feelin a lot more calm bring a lot more self-assured feeling a lot more

  • competent and and I think that really you know what's coming from me to to the

  • interviewing team what would you say to someone who right now is in a situation

  • that you were in let's say a year ago and who is now looking for a new job but

  • who's struggling to land interviews or struggling to get the job offers and

  • they're considering taking top-notch resume what what would advice or what

  • recommendation would you give to them I just say this take the step in in take

  • the course if you just take the step by taking the course then you can come out

  • with it with a stronger resume and you can come out feeling a lot more

  • confident professional and you said it's a funnel the profile is the top of the

  • funnel and everything kinda trickles down so I'll be able to do that in my

  • time our resume and you will come out feeling a lot more confident at the

  • current moment you don't feel confident because it's been theirs take the first

  • step by taking the course awesome and what if they were thinking oh you know I

  • don't have a job right now so I can't invest in myself I mean what would you

  • tell them in that case I will say I understand I got my graduate degree in

  • 2012 and the same week that I got my degree I got a notice of eviction from

  • my apartment and I got a hard times I found from house to house for a year and

  • a half I did not have a job for you to have I went back on food stamps and and

  • it was it was it was horrible I can really relate to a person who says I

  • can't take care of myself right now I mean I don't have a job your course

  • teaches people things that no one else is teaching right now I'm a strong

  • believer in this is that there are resume writing programs out there

  • through like you know the Department of Labor that really doesn't give us a

  • quality resumes that we need to get the jobs that we're looking for the jobs

  • that we deserve the jobs that will help us sustain our own economy personally in

  • an often times we get tired the basic format on how to create a resume

  • in high score in college and their videos and service very well but if you

  • just take this course you will learn how to come up with the quality resume and

  • you'll learn that you do have a lot more experience saying than you actually

  • thought so you'll be able to take care of yourself you'll be able to find ways

  • to cure yourself and and if you have a dream in your heart you have a goal you

  • have you know something that is keeping you going in some kind of way didn't

  • really just believe in that and take the steps that you need for yourself

  • it's your life for a reason he's gotta live your life for you beautiful and you

  • know this ties in with the work that I do too and I'm glad you mentioned that

  • shavar because the reason why I do what I do I teach people how to land jobs and

  • how to move forward in their careers is because at the end of the day it's your

  • life your career plays a big role in your life right I mean it brings you a

  • lot of meaning and if you're not going after it the right way you don't have

  • the right strategy or the right tactics you might be missing out on

  • opportunities that could easily be yours but it's just because you didn't know

  • how to go after them so thank you for sharing one other thing I want to

  • mention is some people when they're comparing oh I have to take a course I

  • have to figure this all out myself I have to write the resume myself why

  • don't I just pay someone to write my resume for me what would you say to them

  • about that I know someone right now who has fall onto hard times and is actually

  • you know working with a corporate headhunter to write their resume and

  • send it out to different company it didn't help them get a job and

  • unfortunately you know she just hasn't found any opportunities whatsoever and

  • my heart goes out to her I say you know this program is amazing that Aranea is

  • amazing I mean I learned so much from her please do this course but she was

  • really this leaning into the idea of these headhunters give me giving her an

  • opportunity and it this has somebody worked out so you know sometimes when

  • you put all your eggs into that particular basket of someone you know

  • writing your resume for you or finding your opportunity for you it may work

  • based on them being a quality professional and give you a quality

  • product or it may not work and I think that's

  • that's a gamble you take with that so you know I say I say learner skills
