NOTE: Please be Respectful of our Volunteer’s Time. All are professionals and are either working full time or own and operate a business. Everyone needs to make a good impression when apply for a job. There is little difference if you request help from our professional volunteers, Make sure you are leaving the same impression with them that you would leave with a potential employer.
If an appointment has been made to meet with one of our counselors:
- Be sure to be prompt and on time
- Exchange cell phone numbers so in case you or the volunteer are running late you can communicate and reschedule if need be
- Understand the volunteers are busy people. They may not get back to you as quickly as you expect, but they will.
If you have not heard back from one of our volunteers in over a week, mention this to Jeff at one of the Tuesday meetings for follow-up or use this form.
Meet Marc Montayne. His background working with Hy-Vee as a Division Manager resulted in hiring hundreds of employees and reading even more resumes. He recognizes what it takes to create a good resume. Marc will review your resume ONLY if you have a JOB DESCRIPTION for a position you will want to apply. Marc will not write your resume. He will offer tips and suggestions to help you create a good resume. Now understand that you should have a master resume that can be tweaked for the job you are applying for. That means you need to include those items that are important to the job description to the job specific resume being built and remove those items that really have no bearing on that position.
Your Resume Review involved a Personal Meeting with Marc.
If you need to create a resume, please check out the Job Resources Page that has numerous FREE Resources to help your build a basic resume.

Do you have a LinkedIn Profile? No? LinkedIn is the best Professional networking tool available. It can help you find a way to infiltrate a company to get your resume past HR and directly to the hiring manager.
To learn more how you can use LinkedIn, refer to this handy checklist to build and refine your profile or check out the LinkedIn Job Seeker Center. You can also read and subscribe to the LinkedIn Job Seeker Blog
If you do not have a Profile on LinkedIn, it is time to contact our LinkedIn Specialist and Social Media Explorer, Jeff Quandt. Jeff offers 1-on-1 counseling sessions to help you with LinkedIn; the best professional networking tool available.
Sessions are held at the Millard branch of the Omaha Public Library by Appointment. The library is located at 13214 Westwood Lane. Hours available for sessions are Mon-Wed 9 am – 8 pm; Thurs – Fri. 9 am-6 pm. The library has two private study rooms where the sessions can be held. Since the rooms cannot be reserved, there is a chance a meeting may be delayed until a room becomes available, unless the session is scheduled for 9 am when the library opens. Before requesting a session YOU MUST already have a LinkedIn profile that is fairly complete. Typically you want to at least start with your resume information on the profile. There is limited time to hold a 1 and 1 session and creating a profile would consume too much of it.
Click LinkedIn Counseling Request to arrange a session.
