METRO is pleased to add to our existing resume makeover service a mock interview service for individual myMETRO membersto help them create the perfect résumé and ace the dreaded interview process.

“These kinds of essential services are often fall outside of what a person in a career transition can afford. We’re proud to be able to subsidize the costs of these services to make them more accessible for our individual members.”

Résumé Makeover
METRO’s professional resume makeover service is helmed by Ellen Mehling, a consultant on METRO’s Job Bank and former Outreach Librarian at the Queens Library Job Information Center, where she has helped many job candidates move ahead with a winning resume. For only $35, Ellen will complete a section-by-section analysis of your résumé and identify specific strategies to improve content, style, and impact. Participants will receive an email with step-by-step suggestions to develop a résumé that will create a positive impression with potential employers.

Mock Interview:
Leveraging Ellen’s experience with human resources and the job interview process, METRO is also offering mock interviews for interested myMETRO members. The one-hour mock interviews will be based on the actual or potential interview circumstances and will feature a short interview, feedback from the interviewer, and time for questions from the participant.
