“When I entered a live resume session, I explained that I typed up a resume and I feel that I can’t word it professionally. It looks like a 6th grader wrote it. This has been the hardest thing I’ve had to do. Long gone are the days when a person could simply fill out an application in person. Resume writing is intimidating for me and This has been a block for me as far as trying to get a job. By the end of the session, I had fun and was able to improve my resume significantly.”
“As a recent graduate, this service has proven to be more helpful than my university career center. One of the reasons that it is helpful is that it is non-confrontational and non-embarrassing. As an alum, you are not protected under FERPA. Communications like getting help on a resume are not always confidential in a university setting. A bad resume can be shared between friends, professors, or colleagues. That just isn’t constructive when all people struggle with it. I am glad that I am able to take advantage of the Brainfuse service through my public library. This past session was particularly helpful because my cover letter has been coming off as overwhelming on one extreme and sounding like I am taking over a director’s job on the other. Because I like to take a more creative approach to resume and cover letter writing, it has been helpful to particularly get feedback on resumes and cover letters that are styled like the TORI winners from Career Directors International. This is a great service and it just keeps getting better! :)”
“Friday, one of our regular customers went to a job fair in town; 30-40 employers and several hundred job-seekers, all dressed to the nines and with résumés in hand. He said, “I took my Brainfuse résumé, and the recruiter said that was the best résumé he had seen in a long time,” he said. A couple of points attracted my attention: 1, the high quality was recognized by an HR professional, and 2, our patron had taken personal ownership of the brand, calling it his “Brainfuse résumé.””
“Patrice was very helpful and encouraging and provided resources that will assist me in my job search. Thank you!”
