Why I Started Spark Your Resume
I always say “To obtain a job is a job.” I say this because I know what it feels like to apply for 100+ jobs and receive 100 NO’s. I know what it feels like to doubt your own capabilities and believe you aren't qualified for a role. I know what it feels like reaching the final round of interviews and being told, “Thank you for your consideration, however, we will be moving forward with another candidate.” That was my experience until I received my first full-time offer post-graduation from AT&T in December of 2019.
I have always been passionate about helping others advance their career and reaching their lifelong professional goals. For these specific reasons, I decided to create a platform that guides individuals through the process of obtaining their dream job. On March 23, I officially launched Spark Your Resume, an online resume writing and career advancement services company.
Building your professional brand is something I began to take into account during my junior year at Georgia State University. Georgia State University is an institution not targeted by most “elite” companies. Understanding that my university is a non-targeted school made me realize that students like myself interested in working for a big name organization or company must grind three times as hard to stand out amongst the competition. When searching for new opportunities, professionals must ensure their resume, LinkedIn profile, interviewing skills, and network are top tier.
The reason Spark Your Resume exists today is because I am extremely passionate about helping real people obtain real results through professional branding and development. I am building a platform informing undergraduates, entry-level, and mid-career professionals on the importance of creating and maintaining their professional brand. Spark Your Resume was built for the people and will always remain for the people.
