Resume Review and Feedback

We will review your resume for proper style, appropriate descriptions of your educational and work experience, and will make sure you do not have any spelling or typographical errors.  Follow-up conversations often occur to help clients further strengthen their “selling points” and garner the interest of potential employers.

Using examples of real legal resumes, we will show you some format, style, and grammatical mistakes that were made in the Before Resumes, and will show the corrections that we made in the After Resumes.  The errors in the Before Resumes are highlighted in red, while the corrections are highlighted in yellow in the After Resumes.

Using the real legal resume of an Experienced Attorney, we will show you some format, style, and grammatical mistakes that were made in the Before Resume and will show the corrections that we made in the After Resumes.  Errors in the Before Resumes are highlighted in red, while the corrections are highlighted in yellow in the After Resumes.

The After Resume of the Experienced Attorney is more descriptive, easier to read, organized, accurate, and error free.  After asking the client many questions and engaging in a dialogue about his specific responsibilities at each position, we changed, clarified, and expanded the description of the client’s positions.  Additionally, we corrected the format, style, and grammatical mistakes in the Experienced Attorney’s Resume.  The After Resume better reflects the client’s knowledge, skills, and experience.
