SIBL/NYPL Coach - Ryan Renteria
Mar 6, 2014
I have been to an expensive resume coaching company and other resume coaches, but in one session Ryan Renteria gave me a resume that I can be proud of, and one that speaks honestly about who I am. Ryan is professional, intelligent, and know this subject better than anyone. He made it so easy Ryan knows strategic steps towards having a great resume and the interviewing process. I am grateful for his help, and thankful that he chose SIBL/NYPL as a place to pass it forward.
Coaching Session with Magdalene Chan
Mar 6, 2014
I had a wonderful session with Magdalene Chan. Her advice was practical and tailored to me. I appreciated my time with her and came away with renewed confidence and vigor.

She spent a lot of time reading the resume, showing me growth in other job markets, and even reviewed a job posting of interest to her on my time. Out of over an hour, I got maybe 10 minutes of value. People who communicate well and know how to be helpful are key for this position. This person even told me that she can't get fired because she's a civil servant. I never mentioned her job security! But as if she knew she was letting me down, she said that. You can do better than this.
A helpful afternoon

Kudos to the NYPL for providing this service. I felt I received good advice both generally and specific to my situation, and I fully recommend to anyone job hunting to utilize this resource.

John had a lot of eye-opening information for me about how to look for a job, as well as specifically useful tips on improving my current resume. I wish I had recorded it, because I couldn't take notes fast enough! He was also very helpful with suggestions about what I could do to prepare myself for the market, including availing myself of the Library's resources. I'll be back!
