Like the stack of Rod McKuen poetry books stuffed away in your parents' attic, your resume has become yellowed and dusty. Even worse, it describes the old you - a lesser version who has fewer professional accomplishments to boast about. And the cover letter that helped you score your last job? Obsolete as well. That's why you need today's Groupon: A $15 resume and cover letter revision by Freshly Baked Communications. That's 70% off the standard price of $50!
Based in Schaumburg, Freshly Baked is owned by marketing specialist and writer Lauren Young, who consults for top Chicagoland businesses when she's not helping grammar-challenged Chicagoans land their dream jobs. To take advantage of their services, you'll need to send them an existing resume and cover letter. Freshly Baked will then reword your sentences, improve your vocabulary, and provide other document-doctoring tips.
Freshly Baked will also provide additional resumes tailored to suit multiple job applications, but that will cost you extra. And if you want the fancy resume paper with fuzzies in it, you'll have to cover the expense yourself: Contrary to what news reports have claimed, Freshly Baked does not run its own backyard paper mill.
The Groupon is good for a whole year, so you'll have plenty of time to use it.
