    We’ve launched a follow-up course to our free Write Great Resumes Faster course called Ask Better Questions, Write Better Resumes

    Do you want to learn how to get better information from your clients, so it’s easier to write their resume and career documents? Then this new course is for you!

    The most effective resumes capture who the client is, what they want to do, and why they are qualified for the position. 

    For years, I would laboriously research the profession and job title of each client I worked with. Along the way, I discovered I didn’t need to learn all the minutiae of a particular jobseeker’s profession — I needed to know WHY they are good at what they DO. 

    I learned to teach each client to give me the information I needed to craft the resume and help them with their job search. 

    As a result of the tips I share in the Ask Better Questions, Write Better Resumes course, you’ll spend less time researching and more time collecting rich accomplishments... and the result is more impactful, powerful, and interview-winning resumes. 

    The course includes handouts, a 45-minute video, a worksheet, and “Bridget’s Big List of Questions” you can use in your intake (whether you use questionnaires or a live consult).

    To learn more and enroll in Ask Better Questions, Write Better Resumes, visit our course page.  

    (The Ask Better Questions, Write Better Resumes course is part of our Resume Writer’s University course offerings on Teachable).
