Can you ask for a one week trial? I’m really leery of them applying you to jobs you actually want —

They send me a list of jobs they’ve sourced for me each week, and I can remove any positions I’m not interested in. But, a trial is a great idea to see if it might be a match. Thanks!

Try the Mom Project on LinkedIn. I signed up and I get free job matching almost everyday.

Look up this person on YouTube .Andy Lacivita.. Then, watch/listen to his playlist on career search, then resumes.. If you like what you see, but don't want to plunk down the money for his Job Boot Camp, then at least spend the $50 for his resume instruction pack. A year ago, I was applying to jobs and hearing nothing back, then bought his pack, reformatted my resume accordingly, and got more calls back then I could handle. Was worth every penny, because the job offers and prospects returning calls were substantially much better v quality both pay wise and quality wise....

Can't speak on a service that sources and applies jobs for you, however I used a resume writing service a few years ago and highly recommended using one of those. It wasn't very expensive, maybe $200 I think? The final resume I ended up with was leaps and bounds better than what I had been using. Some of the suggestions you get from friends and family are often the opposite of what you should be doing based on industry. Have you tried working with a recruiter? Some of the better ones will help with coaching services and it's the company that pays them, not you out of your salary. Good luck with your search!
