For the opportunities freelance translators are pursuing, an appropriate resume is a one- to two-page summary of relevant skills, experience, and education. A resume must be brief because the reader typically spends less than a minute reviewing its contents. You need to make sure your resume is concise, well written, and that it contains the information translation companies are looking for, and, by the same token, that it does not contain anything that is irrelevant or unnecessary.
Over the past decade, I have mentored and coached other freelance translators with their marketing. One of the most frequent tasks I’ve had is to review and help them with their basic marketing material; CV, cover letter and online profiles.

In this workshop, you'll get tips and steps to develop the following:
✓ A resume that sells - what to include and what to avoid, what translation agencies are looking for, plus some layout tips

I recommend this workshop! I learned a lot of hands-on tips to improve my online profiles, resume and cover letter to apply to agencies. Plus, Tess can review your resume / profiles and give you a feedback!*
Very practical and hands-on advice. I was able to implement changes to my CV immediately, and have received good feedback from clients about it.
The workshop was very practical and informative, I enjoyed the interactive elements of the session and the fact that the handouts are a very good resource to look back at. Tess is very knowledgeable and give very practical advice. The workshop covers pretty much everything about working with agencies.
