I really enjoyed my conversation with Clementine. Both she and Erin are incredibly knowledgeable and action oriented as well as warm and personable. Their business clearly goes beyond creating impactful resumes and cover letters and supporting people with interview preparation and LinkedIn profiles. They value building relationships with their clients and providing incredible support and encouragement for them with the daunting, but also exciting, journey of seeking and applying for employment opportunities.
Resume restoration was born in the spring of 2020 approximately two weeks before the Coronavirus pandemic started. It actually ended up being good timing for Clementine and Erin in that they were able to fully turn their business into a virtual business.
Clementine’s background is in human resources. She has about fifteen years of experience working in HR. Clementine completed her Master’s degree in Leadership in 2012 and started doing consulting for organizations across Canada. Eight years ago, she and her husband moved to Calgary from British Columbia and she decided to become a full time HR consultant. Clementine’s work included providing career transition support to professionals when they were terminated from a position. Her support was part of their severance package. Clementine recognized how fantastic it was that these professionals would receive support to help them navigate the world of becoming a job seeker. This was often a world that they hadn’t been in for a long time. We’re talking five, ten, fifteen, sometimes twenty years. She thought to herself that there had to be a way to offer these types of services in a cost effective and timely fashion to job seekers more universally.
Clementine and Erin have been friends for the past seven to eight years. Erin has a passion for graphic design and really specializes in creating impressive design content. Erin and Clementine combined their skills sets in creating Resume Restoration.
