Résumé & Curriculum Vitae (CV)
for people looking to work in aid, relief and development
"Without Jayne's help, I would never have gotten into the UN's LEAD program. She helped me realize I had all sorts of experience I wasn't talking about in my application. She made my own words stronger. I say she has a golden hand!"
-- Iranian colleague from UNDP
"I told Jayne what kind of work I wanted to do, and she helped me repackage myself. She looked at the job I wanted and talked to me about my pas work experience, and was able to put things in my résumé from my past work I had never thought of. And I got the job!"
-- French colleague from UNIFEM
Whether you are applying to work at a United Nations agency or an international NGO, to work at an international non-governmental agency (NGO), to work at a small nonprofit organization, or to be a part of VSO Canada, VSO or the PeaceCorps or some other volunteer-sending agency, your résumé needs to represent a variety of your professional, volunteer and academic experiences that are most desired by these agencies.
I have screened résumés for a variety of aid, relief and development agencies and nonprofits, and I have helped many professionals, from people just getting started to seasoned professionals, to improve their résumés and overall presentation, with excellent results. I can use this background to help improve your résumé. Using your answers to a variety of questions, a review of your current résumé, and a review of the jobs you feel you are qualified for, I can work with you to greatly improve your résumé -- and, ultimately, improve your chances of being hired.
