Working as an online resume coach can be challenging yet satisfying. Although there are various automated programs available to help job seekers create the perfect resume, many people prefer to interact with a real person. There are no specific requirements to help someone create their resume; one of the most important aspects of the process is to talk to them and get an understanding of their background, achievements and job aspirations. A grasp of the job market is a plus, as well as a better than average understanding of technology and online platforms. And of course, impeccable grammar and spelling are essential too. It also helps if you have sample resumes available to show potential clients and have a demonstrable track record of creating resumes that work. Getting clients is also important, and many resume coaches post their services in schools and colleges as well as online.
