035: Lhea Scotto-Laub – Resumes that Sell

In It's All About The Questions by Laura



Resumes are all about selling you and most people get them wrong. Did you know you need more than one resume? Did you know how resumes have changed and what you are probably doing wrong on yours that may be blocking you from getting that dream job? What about that interview? Want to know how to nail it?

I haven’t written a resume in over 15 years. Owning my own business all I need is a bio nowadays and even that I learned, after talking to my guest, can use an update. But how do you choose what goes in?

How do you unlock the words to the skills you truly have versus those you think you have? How do you make a gap in work or several jobs with short term employment not become a red flag to a potential employer?

Listen as I question Lhea Scotto-Laub who has written over 14,000 resumes, cover letters, bios and personal statements. My eyes were opened!
