Helping Hand With A Resume
--by pennz, posted Jun 24, 2007
I have just started up a small business helping people find jobs and particulary to do their cv and covering letters for job interviews (after 16 years I still love the work). We charge a minimal amount of NZ$25.00.
I have had two clients this week come in who are desperately looking for work and needed a CV (resume). They did not have the money to pay for it, so I said for them to let me look at what I can do and asked them to come back the next day.
I finished one that night and rang the lady to tell her I had finished her CV, that I also have an employer who I'm sending a copy to and told her that she can pay me when she gets a job.
She had not expected much other than advice, but hearing the joy in her voice was what it's all about. While there was a phone line, I could feel her gratitude and no doubt, the smile on her face that no words can ever express.
I woke this morning thinking about the smile on her face and knowing that someone cared enough to make a difference in her life ... I am thankful for being chosen to be that difference. ;-)
to put a mirror by your phone for 1-2wks
and when the phone rang, to look at yourself and smile then pick up and greet the customer....you would be much friendlier and to keep smiling...even if complaints were called in ...it sounds crazy but it really worked!
Commending you and your boss on your compassionate...thanks for sharing your story.
Smiles & Blessings from Brighteyes ;)
We must never doubt our own abilities and to be strong in our minds that we can achieve ... and so it will be. Bless us all.
