How Miranda, a TopResume writer, helped Mike

Mike was still relatively new to the workforce and didn’t have a clear job goal in mind. He knew he wanted to use his foreign language skills in his next job, but wasn’t sure what that job would look like or how to package his skills in a way that would entice employers.

I helped Mike emphasize his proficiency in technical translation as well as his experience in the automotive industry. We focused on demonstrating how Mike’s Japanese/English translation skills provided value in the workplace. I also worked on optimizing Mike’s resume by incorporating more industry-specific keywords throughout the document. The result was a professional looking resume that spoke to Mike’s strengths and interests.

In his own words

Working with TopResume gave me a lot of confidence... from this point, it can only go up.
