Following Breast CA and reconstruction I had 2 additional surgeries not related to the CA.  I lost my job however, during the breast reconstruction period.  I have not worked for 2 years now and need to get back to work.  I have submitted numerous resumes.  In the past I have never had an issue with getting a job.  At this point, I feel like I need assistance.

    Hi Olivia,

    Thanks for reaching out. I have sent your question off to our coaches who will be in touch soon. In the meantime, if you would like help with your resume I would recommend submitting it to our free Resume Review Service. You can upload your resume here and one of our coaches will review it and provide feedback: http://www.cancerandcareers.org/resume_reviews/new

    Please let me know if you have any questions about this process and our coach will get back to you shortly.

    Best,

    Sarah, Associate Manager of Programs, Cancer and Careers

    Olivia –

    We can help with suggesting approaches and
    potential resources.

    It would be helpful to know more about your
    career track and profession. 

    Tell us a bit about your experience and your
    skills.

    Are you seeking full or part time work?

     Are you working on your own or through a
    staffing agency? Have you registered with a temporary agency?

    Have you used our online tools or sought help
    to ensure that you have a resume that will catch the reader’s eye and get you invited
    for an interview?

     In this economy, many candidates rely on their network to discover job leads.  Make a list of all the people you could reach out to discuss potential opportunities with their employers.

    Once we know a little more about you, we can
    provide you with some ideas of how to jump start your job search.

     Margot
