Career Consulting

Your career search is much more than just sending out resumes. It is important to take your time and be thoughtful yet keep the momentum going. Equally important is being mindful and true to yourself and your career goals.

With over 20 years of experience providing guidance, advisement and exceptional deliverables, we help maximize your productivity, and help position you for the opportunities you really want.

We work with clients from all professional disciplines and levels of experience. Some are re-entering the workforce, making a career change, or simply seeking a new opportunity.

Resume Writing

A resume is a personal marketing tool for a job seeker. It must fully represent professional’s experience, accomplishments and education. An effective resume must also provide a snapshot of a job seeker’s goals, abilities and successes in a way that encourages a potential employer to want to learn more through an interview.

In addition to the resume’s content, the format, structure and accuracy are equally essential. By effectively capturing the most pertinent information in the form of a well-organized resume, job seekers will be better prepared to land interviews and the right job for them.

Hudson River Career Resources takes a very thorough approach to working with you. We will conduct an initial meeting to learn about you, your career history and your goals. Often these meetings are structured much like an interview to keep you in a professional mindset.  Next, a resume draft will be prepared, with a follow-up discussion to edit and make revisions. The goal is to ensure that the final version of the resume is of the highest quality, truly sells your skill sets, and provides an accurate profile.
