The Resume and Interview Coach



The Resume and Interview Coach

I've had a life long career in sales and sales management.  With a bachelor of science degree in business management, my first positions were in field sales.  Moving into the pharmaceutical industry early in my career, I was blessed to be an award winner with achievements such as Pro Club, Winners Circle and District Manager Circle of Excellence.  As a Senior District Sales Manager, I got to lead many talented teams, working along side of numerous hard working individuals.  With that said, I have coached teams and sales professionals to top levels of performance including national sales awards and promotions to specialty rep positions.  I have vast experience in interviewing, hiring, and career coaching using competency based review systems that recruiters and hiring managers use today.  I also have formal training in Situational Interviewing techniques that aid to identify and define skills in: presentation, technical aptitude, leadership, initiative, influence, analytical competence and teamwork.  These valuable experiences are transferable today as I have the privilege to offer career services as The Resume and Interview Coach.

"Under the mentoring and coaching of Melodie, I accomplished many career goals and achieved much success.  I have been in sales and marketing for over 20 years and have worked for several different managers, and I can honestly say that Melodie was by far the best coach and manager that I ever had.  Melodie not only coached me, but she guided me in my career helping me to achieve two Regional Sales Champion, three District Quality awards, and two promotions, in the three years I worked for her.  I would highly recommend Melodie to anyone who is looking to begin, advance or make a change in their career."

"I had an excellent experience with Melodie as I prepared to interview for a nurse practitioner position. Before I contacted Melodie, I felt very anxious and unprepared. She helped me develop my interview skills by guiding me with experienced based questions and enhancing my interview skills through role play. Role playing with interview related situations allowed me to feel comfortable demonstrating my qualifications to potential employers. I am happy to say that my first interview was my only interview, and I absolutely love my job. I honestly feel like since I was very prepared and calm for this interview it contributed greatly to the success. Thank you Melodie!"
