So when are you ?

Conversations at holiday gatherings can be repetitive and annoying AF. Here are some stock responses you can use at your next family dinner or happy hour.
  • I am learning a lot at this internship. Thanks for asking!
  • Freelancing offers me the flexibility I need.
  • It is best for our family that I not work outside the home / attend classes right now.
  • Actually, I already have a "real job" I enjoy that fulfills my needs.
  • I am looking to change directions in my career.
  • I am actively job searching but looking for the right fit.
  • As soon as I can update my resume!
If you resonate with the last three answers, I can help!

Job search got you feeling this kinda way?

My name is Jennifer, chronic job-hunter and dream career chaser. I have trouble deciding what I want to do when I grow up and have applied to literally hundreds of jobs since 2010. I successfully crossed career fields several times before finally charting my own path as a freelancer.

My first, fourth, and fifth jobs were teaching high school science. I have also worked in real estate, photography, and digital marketing. While I honestly don't believe that "dream jobs" exist, I do believe everyone needs and deserves to do meaningful work.

If you are searching for a new job in 2019, get a head start (and get your parents, partner, or professor off your back) with a Resume Refresh.

what?! an application??

It's good practice, honey, trust me. And this is way simpler than just about any job application you'll ever see. Here's the deal: Mama needs a break but Mama also wants a digital piano for Christmas. So Mama can help 5 job applicants refresh their resumes before December 31, 2018. In order to help as many people as possible, I can only accept qualified candidates who are ready to get to work. But qualifying is easy! Just fill in the application below, attach your updated resume, and you'll hear back from me within 2 business days.

I've survived at least 5 holiday seasons worth of concerned questions about my, uh, "career."

you can too.

I can't help you win any debates about immigration with Uncle Rodney. I can't protect you from your Great-Aunt Marge's attempts to set you up with her neighbor's roommate's best friend, though I can suggest some excellent dodging tactics. But if you're facing dinner table harassment about your career and YOU want to do something about it, I can help. I've spent the last 6 years mastering copywriting and document design (and applying to 7432 jobs) so that you don't have to.
