No joke. I was just practicing a pres on Google slides and I watched someone from my company start correcting grammar in my speaker notes (which are being deleted for client facing document). Do people really not have anything meaningful to add to the process?

Hi!

I’ve worked in SaaS for seven years close to eight.
I have a breadth of skills I’ve been lucky to develop: digital marketing/social media/graphic design +. My side gig is creative project crowdfunding: raised close to 40k thus far. I’ve made a few short film projects, sold one. I’ve been part of or led phases of major GTM launches.

All that said I cannot for the life of me, figure out, how to translate that into a role where I make more than 70K a year? Any advice on how to make it work?

Tips on writing a resume...

1. Don't apply with only 1 resume. Tailor your resume based on the industry (e.g. e-commerce, fintech, etc.) & Companies (e.g. Amazon, Google, etc.)

2. Read the job descriptions & responsibilities. Check the repeating words & phrases...then use those when you're tailoring your resume. Why? Lots of companies (esp. biiig onez) use ATS and it filters ones that match their JD. Resume is a tool to knock the company's door. So knock them well and with strategies!
