Description

Instead of a formal resume, create a engaging brochure or flyer that can offer you a more flexible approach for marketing your services. A well-crafted brochure will stand out from the pack and allow a job-hunter to seek work in untraditional settings where formal resumes don’t work. It also doubles as a promotional piece for finding part-time work and projects that might lead to full-time, permanent positions.
