Resume
Services

Any currently or formerly incarcerated person who requests resume services will be sent a "resume checklist." The checklist serves as a guideline for the necessary information that they will need to send back in order to receive a customized resume. 

Upon completion, each client will receive a PDF version as well as an editable copy of their resume. A letter of support may also be provided upon request at no additional cost.

On average, each resume takes three to four hours to complete in order to ensure that the wording, design, and information accurately articulates and displays your accomplishments in accordance with the desires and requirements of what the resume will be used for. 

Resumes are designed and tailored for:

  • Board of Parole Hearings

  • Employment

  • Educational or Vocational Programs

  • Entrepreneurship 

  • Personal Use

  • Misc. or Other Needs
