TRAININGS & DO-IT-YOURSELF
I cannot say enough positive things about Melanie. She was very communicative and really listened to my needs and goals. I have received so many compliments on my resume. I credit her with me being able to land a job a month after finishing grad school. Thanks again!

1:1 Resume Tailoring Class
Applicant Tracking Systems can be a challenge to figure out. Now that more than 80% of companies are using some kind of ATS to manage applications, you’ve got to crack the ATS code if you want to have a chance when applying online. Luckily all of our documents are ATS friendly – plus we give you a free ASCII plain text file just in case.
But formatting is only one component that the ATS looks at. You also have to master what I like to call the ‘keyword game’. The resume we create for you will be fabulous to send to contacts, hiring managers and recruiters, but you may need to tweak some of the verbiage based on the job description at hand.
I know…you’re not exactly sure how to do that, right? Well, I am now adding a free service where after each and every project is finalized, we will hop on a live screen share and I will show you exactly how to tweak your resume so it matches the job description more closely.
And… you get the video recording to re-watch any time you’d like.
Hey Melanie, little update; since we spoke last, I got the job with Target as their new Operations manager in Tifton, Georgia. I think the new resume was the bow that tied everything up perfectly. Thanks again for the awesome resume!- Treavine Edman
Job Search Strategy Session
Yes, your new resume is pure awesomeness and you’re ready to start applying!
But, do you know how to actually get your new and improved resume in front of the right people? Job searching is not as simple as it once was. Therefore, you’ll need a real strategy in place (and I don’t mean figuring out how many Indeed applications you can send within 10 minutes).
You need to figure out how to reach your future boss and get your resume in front of him or her. In this 30 minute session, we devise a customized job search plan so you make sure you are spending your job search time wisely.
You’ll walk away knowing exactly where your best-fit opportunities lie and where to go both online and offline to start getting interviews lined up right away.
Melanie provided useful tips on networking and optimizing my LinkedIn profile in order to attract recruiters. I landed several interviews, which led to a job offer that I accepted. Melanie’s coaching combined broad technical knowledge of job-hunting techniques with an encouraging style that kept me motivated throughout the process. I would recommend her to anyone looking for resume writing or job search coaching services.

I know, you HATE interviewing. You are never sure what to say, how to say it, what to wear or what to do after. You THINK you do pretty well – but you NEVER hear back and wonder what the heck happened. You start doubting your abilities and your confidence takes a deep dive into total self-doubt.
Unfortunately, the reality is, the job offer isn’t necessarily granted to the one who is most qualified, but the one who interviews best. But, you’re in luck…
Believe it or not, interviewing is a skill that can be learned. And I am here to teach you all the insider information they WISH you knew about interview…we are going to shine some light on everything from preparation to first impressions to the interview process and follow up. This package entails:
- 60-minute private coaching call designed to help you reshape your mindset around the entire interview process and identify your strongest selling points
- 60-minute mock interview / training session, with suggestions on how to improve responses to questions, tone of voice and body language so you are always selling your value
- 90 GOOD Questions to Ask During a Job Interview – PDF download
With her assistance I feel much more confident when applying for any job. Additionally, I recently received a job offer, which I decided not to take as they could not offer me what I felt I am worth. Her services and guidance have increased my self confidence and knowledge of job searching.

Salary Negotiation Training
Did you know that most employers expect you (the candidate) to negotiate your compensation package? How many times have you been offered a salary and simply agreed out of fear of them revoking the offer?
No more! You are selling yourself short and frankly if you don’t ask the answer is always no. Learn how to negotiate any offer with confidence (and not just your pay rate). This package entails:
- 30-minute 1-on-1 salary negotiation training – don’t get paid a penny less than what you’re worth
- 30-minute salary negotiation role play with multiple scenarios
- Salary negotiation preparation worksheet and how-to guide (with templates & scripts)
My resume was old, my interview skills dusty. Working with Melanie at Resume Evolution was by far the best decision I could have made! She counseled me on EVERY single step. She even helped me negotiate extra perks! Her knowledge is vast, her professionalism speaks volumes and ultimately I owe my new career and bigger pay check directly to her efforts.
