The first impression matters a lot during your job search, and your resume delivers the first impression!

An HR person on average spends 10–15 seconds to go through your resume before he/she makes a decision. You want to make sure your resume looks and feels great and elegant.

Have an experienced mentor to analyze your resume and provide you valuable feedback.

When your resume is improved, you will get more job interviews, and more opportunities to land a dream job.

How it works

1. After you book a resume feedback session through Calendly, send the mentor a copy of your most recent resume;

2. The mentor will review your resume and save some notes on areas to be improved, and make some edits if necessary;

3. During the zoom call, the mentor will share their notes and suggestions, and share some tips and techniques that can help your resume catch a recruiter or a hiring manager’s eye;

4. After the meeting, you will rewrite your resume and send it back to the mentor;

5. The mentor will email back the final feedback and make necessary edits.


“Edited hundreds of resumes; people typically go from 5% interview response rate to 75% This covers the basics: https://www.productlessons.xyz/article/product-manager-resume-with-examples-keywords”

Congratulations, you nailed your interview and received a job offer. Now what?

According to a report by salary.com, close to 50% of job applicants did not negotiate before they took their job offers.

Not negotiating leaves a significant amount of potential income on the table, which could be as high as one-two months of your base salary, can you imagine that?

And the #1 reasons for why not negotiating an offer is:

FEAR!

 

1. Afraid of losing the job offer

Which in reality, unless you messed up the negotiation, your future employer was expecting you to negotiate.

2. It is outside of your comfort zone

Many of us work on engineering or data-related roles, and if you are an introvert, it's tough for you even to start the conversation.

3. Information assymetry

You don't know how many offers they made to other candidates, the expected range of salaries for this role, etc.

 

But fear no more, because you will get help from an experienced mentor with

✅ A clear salary negotiation strategy.

We know industry standards have a deep understanding of the hiring process. We will first analyze your situations at this moment and help you better understand your leverage, strength, and weaknesses.

✅ Salary negotiation chat preparation

Jump on a call in a simulated salary negotiation process, rehearse salary negotiation with a hiring manager (kind of like a mock interview).

✅ Customized email scripts you can borrow 

Salary negotiation is a skill that takes years to be good at, and we have mentors who have been on both sides, years of hiring and interviewing experiences.

We will send you customized email scripts so you can easily respond in different situations.
