Enneagram Test

What is the Enneagram? “The Enneagram explains the “why” of how we think, act, and feel. It helps us come to terms with our gifts as well as the patterns that tether us to our greatest interpersonal, spiritual, and emotional challenges. The Enneagram invites us to a deeper self-awareness as a doorway to spiritual growth.” – Christopher L. Heuertz The Sacred Enneagram

Resume and Cover Letters

Resumes and Cover Letters give employers a quick snapshot of who you are and your qualifications for the job. Your job in creating your resume is to highlight specific jobs and experiences you have had in order to secure a job interview. Because resumes are the first look employers have at who you are, they need to be carefully written and critiqued. In Career Development we can help you create your first resume or edit an existing resume. We can meet in person, via the phone, or through email. Schedule an appointment today by emailing [email protected]!
