#277) Resume Gaps, No Experience, and Other Complicated Scenarios | Andrea Gerson
Listen, I understand that things are not so straightforward in life. For example, you may have no experience within a given field, and then an entry-level position calls your name – but with the prerequisite of having 3-5 years of experience. Or maybe you’re applying for positions that require experience, but you feel like you’re dealing with ageism. Oh, the irony! So today we’ll unpack those burning questions with a really amazing guest who knows her stuff.
Her name is Andrea Gerson, founder of Resume Scripter. Andrea has 15 years of experience working with professionals at all stages of their careers to find clarity, confidence, and a renewed sense of energy around their work. As a top-ranked career expert who has been featured in Forbes, Business Insider, the Chicago Tribune, and Recruiter.com, Andrea empowers job-seekers to leverage their strengths to reach their professional potential.
Andrea graduated from Columbia University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. She then went on to earn her Master's degree in Social Work at NYU while working full-time as a career counselor in the NYC non-profit sector. It was during this time that she founded Resume Scripter, and since then she has created impactful resumes for nearly 7,500 professionals. Many of her clients have secured competitive roles at top organizations including Microsoft, Google, Facebook, and the United Nations.
So let’s geek out about resumes. I know that this will be a fun and informative conversation for anyone looking to take up their resume to the next level.
