This poet on the job market needed to update to her CV

Heather Sweeney, poet

MFA in writing + poetics, MA in English literature + language

Heather was applying for a specific academic job and needed help formatting her curriculum vitae.

I created a Master CV for her in both paper and electronic versions.

Working with me isn’t just about making sure your CV looks good. It’s important to make sure you’re not leaving anything off.

When working with Heather, we reviewed each category and item to showcase her experience.

“Jennifer is extremely professional and knowledgeable about how to organize and present my experiences on a CV, both in print and online.

I feel comfortable with her and she responded in a timely manner. I would, without a doubt recommend her services to my colleagues at the university.”

When Heather was ready to start her own business, she got in touch again

“I recently had a valuable and helpful consultation with Jennifer van Alstyne, The Academic Designer, regarding my new writing and editing business, HCS Ink.  Our conversation left me feeling inspired, motivated, and more focused.

Jennifer provided much needed insight on the specific steps I need to take to move forward with clearer purpose and vision.  Jennifer’s practical advice and knowledge regarding business and networking made me feel more confident and organized. 

I highly recommend The Academic Designer for writers and academics who are looking to expand their careers or businesses. Jennifer is a pleasure to work with!”
