Open up your time and professional possibilities

Writing your resume shouldn’t weigh down your to-do list or your calendar. While it is one of the single most important career documents in your professional arsenal, it shouldn’t take over your life. No more spinning your wheels draft after draft with little traction. It’s time to beat back the overwhelm and create a head-turning resume that gets you hired (and keeps you on budget).

Meg Applegate

My love for all things words and career started when I sat down with my dad as an overwhelmed high school student to write my first resume. His guidance was simple: How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. I take the same approach as your guide through the resume writing process in bite-size modules without the stress. It’s time to hush your inner critic and take back your time as you create a high-performing resume that exudes your one-of-a-kind value and opens doors.

What people are saying about my resume coaching:

  • “Thank you for the [resume] help! I just signed an offer letter and scored the biggest raise of my life!” - Senior Sales Account Manager

  • “Two different position interviews and one offer later, I increased my income by $27K and my benefits are phenomenal! With a fear of changing industries of over 13 years and being stuck in a position that offered no room for growth, I now have so many more opportunities because of Meg’s help. - Events & Marketing Specialist

  • “I did not have the tools to know where to begin and I was afraid I would make a mistake. Since Meg’s coaching, I am confident that my resume is competitive because I landed an interview after implementing her feedback. It was worth the investment to let Meg do what she does best so that I can focus on what I do best.” - Nonprofit Director

FAQ

  • How long will it take me to write my resume with this course?

    The Resume Key is a self-paced course. It depends on how motivated you are to unearth your brilliance and career wins to write a resume that opens doors to your career target.

  • Who is this course for?

    The resume principles and best practices translate across all experience levels and most industries, but the resume template included in the course is crafted for the use of a U.S.-based mid-career professional.

  • Do I have a limited amount of time to access the course upon purchase?

    No! You have lifetime access to the course. All the resources are available for download. As job search and hiring trends change, so will the course resources and resume template.

  • What’s your refund policy?

    I’m a big believer that your resume is just one tool in your job search toolkit. Because job search is multi-faceted - it’s not just about applying on job boards - refunds are not issued. With that said, let’s talk if you are hearing crickets after implementing my expert guidance.

    Yes! I share my award-winning strategies that get results for my one-on-one coaching clients and my writing clients at a premium investment.
