Meet Linda

Workforce Challenge

Linda was not getting any responses to her resume submissions for jobs.

Workforce Solution

A Talent Management Specialist suggested a 1-on-1 session to review her resume and align its presentation with her career goals. Linda's problems were her age (61) and her experience. Her most recent job was 3-1/2 years in an industry that she had joined for the first time and in which she had no desire to remain. She also had ten years in which she worked in independent contractor positions. Her best experience was over ten years old. Reformatting her resume for effective presentation yielded astounding results. After the new resume was put into action, she had three interviews within the same week, and each interviewer started the conversation by saying, “Well, you obviously have the experience we need.”

Outcomes & Benefits

Linda found a new position that was a good fit for her. She says, "I commend my Specialist wholeheartedly. This turned out to be all I needed; however, AJC offers training, workshops and interview practice that I feel are of the same high caliber. I not only found a job, but I found the right job that suits my goals and personality. My sincere thanks to the AJC Talent Management team."
