Who made this?

Hi, I'm Chris Alexander. In my eight years of working at universities I've seen hundreds of resumes and interviewed many students and recent grads. Too many smart, ambitious students simply don't get hired because they have lackluster resumes and zero interviewing skills.

I'm on a mission to change that, starting with you.

This self-paced email course is laser-focused on getting maximum output (awesome job interviews) with minimal input (your precious time).

So, are you ready for action yet? Let's do this!


Is this email course free?

Uhh... yep!

Why is it free?
I want as many college students and recent grads to have access to this information as possible. I've considered charging for this material in the future, but I've decided to keep it free.

Can I preview a lesson?

Why an email course? Why not just post it all on a website?
When intensive instructional content like this is posted in one fat data dump into a website, most people download it and never use it, or worse, skim it without actually doing any of the work. No one wins in that scenario. This email course format allows me to make sure you get small chunks of information, have time to digest it and have an opportunity to actually apply the steps to your resume.

How long will is take to complete the course?
There are 11 email lessons in total, and they average about 4-6 minutes of reading time.

Will I get more interviews after taking this course?
I certainly hope so! I believe that if you follow these lessons, really dive into the content you will emerge with a stronger resume and a more confident sense of who you are and what value you bring to the professional world. Now, that said, I cannot offer any guarantee about any future outcomes after completing this course. That's entirely in your hands.

I have an idea to improve this course. What should I do?
Email me with any questions, comments, ideas for future courses, or whatever. This course is always in Beta and always improving, so I take your feedback seriously. If you have an idea on how to improve this course, let me know.

Do you offer resume writing services?
Not at this time, sorry. I don't have the time or the infrastructure to accommodate that right now. Though I may consider something like this in the future. If you feel strongly about it, email me and let me know what you're thinking.
