Common Challenges

The clients we've worked with have struggled with the full range of difficulties with job applications.

Organization: keeping track of each application and all of the details can get overwhelming fast, but we’ll help you make sense of the process and stay on track.

Resumes: there’s an art to putting together the basics of your job description and adding in the shine of your accomplishments, and we know just how to help you with your masterpiece.

Cover Letters: figure out exactly what to address and how to make it eye-catching so you’ll get called for an interview.

Interviews: there are always unknowns, and practicing in front of the mirror can only take you so far – we can help give you a more simulated interview and feedback to get you ready and prepared for the real deal.

Negotiation: once you get an offer, decide whether it checks all of your boxes and figure out how to advocate for what you want out of your job.

Confidence: no one knows better than we do that the job application process can erode self-confidence, but we firmly believe that you can make an empowering experience out of it, and continue to use the skills you build for future goals.

Job applications don't have to be something you dread! 

When you work with a JEM expert, you’re working with someone who has over 10 years of experience in teaching people how to achieve their professional goals, and not only that, but also in making it a little bit fun!

Tailored Coaching

The first step towards taking charge of your applications:
let's look at what you can do with our services.

Resumes + Cover Letters

Your resume is a window to your soul. Just kidding! But in all seriousness, it is an important snapshot of the best of what you have to offer. We’ll conduct an interview style session to really get a true sense of your experience, accomplishments, and passion and we’ll weave that into an aesthetic that works for you and your career path. This is one of the most satisfying steps for us and for our clients, because a completed resume feels so great to have in hand. We’ll get there together.

Mock Interviews

Putting your best foot forward in an interview is a skill that very few have automatically, but we can help make you shine. Interviews are a way to tell your story, and we’ll get into the details of showcasing your talent and experience in a way that is true to who you are and makes a winning impression on the hiring committees. We’ll run through mock interviews with feedback sessions until you’re confident and ready to wow!

Bundle It Up

We can combine packages for resumes and mock interviews so that you’re ready to go from start to finish! And of course, if you want to go above and beyond, we offer extra hourly rates to discuss strategic planning, negotiation skills, and more. Drop us a line if you’re interested in a custom quote.

Meet the Experts

Joa

Emily

We (Joa and Emily) met while working for Big Test Prep companies and knew there was a better, more personalized way to provide digital test prep and admissions consulting services. Thus, JEM Achievement was born: tailored and flexible support available online, no matter where you are. JEM empowers students in pursuit of advanced education through curated courses, private tutoring, and strategic coaching. We strive to have a hand in developing future leaders within their communities, instilling a solid set of values to be carried forward.

We have worked with our clients from test prep, through their degrees, and beyond into the job market, over the course of our 10+ year careers in private education. We know how stressful job searches can be and how it can erode confidence. Plus, with busy lives and families, it can be difficult to add professional goals into the mix. Whether you’re job searching for advancement opportunities or out of necessity, we’re here to help you with guided strategy, and we hope to empower you from start to finish.

Both of us have compatible styles with sometimes different perspectives and strengths, which is why we make such a great team! When you work with one of us, you can be sure that you’re still getting the other because we are in constant communication behind the scenes, strategizing ways to bring out the best in your abilities. We have worked with students from all over the world from a variety of backgrounds and with a range of goals. You can be sure with us that you’ll receive honest advice and work with people who care about you as an individual. We know what achievement can do for self-confidence, and we want you to find success!

FAQs

Who can benefit from this service?

Our career services are a great fit for people who:

  • are putting their resumes together for the first time,
  • would like help putting together a great cover letter,
  • have been in a job for a number of years and would like their resume updated,
  • are thinking about a career shift and want some tailored guidance,
  • need practice with interviews and in telling their stories in compelling ways,
  • have a desire to improve their negotiating skills for title, salary, and benefits.
Can’t I find this information online?
Yes, you’ll be able to find a plethora of information online. However, the information may not always be consistent across resources and will not take your unique profile into consideration. We always encourage clients to dig around, do research, and see what is out there. It’s very useful because it can help you ask better questions and get even more out of your sessions with us because there are great sources of inspiration out there. We find that the clients who value our guidance are typically very busy and simply don’t have the time (or energy) to do tons of digging online and/or simply need someone to help them develop a clear, personalized strategy.
Do you offer additional career services?
Yes, JEM offers hourly sessions for a variety of career services, including strategic planning for job searches, negotiations for contracts and benefits. Let us know what you need and we’ll arrange a custom package for you!
Where do my Career sessions take place and how do we track files/updates?
We are happy to meet you via WebEx, Adobe Connect, or Zoom. None of these platforms will cost anything for you! All you need is a bit of time to get set up to understand how the platform works, and then you’re ready to rock!

As for sharing documents and info, we use email, Dropbox, and Google Drive.
How does scheduling work?
During our initial consultation with you, we’ll discuss a general outline of availability to make sure scheduling is a smooth process. Then you and your admissions consultant will schedule directly with each other, deciding when and how often you’ll meet. Once sessions are confirmed, you’ll receive a Google Calendar Invite via email with information about the focus of the session and any other relevant links.
