Schofield Strategies is honored to announce that it has been nominated for a Military Family Member Community Heartbeat Award for the work we’ve been doing to support military families and veterans!!
I am excited to be part of this great group of nominees, but can’t win this award without your help! Please feel free to share with your network or social media sites. Winning this award would be an incredible honor!
My husband nominated me for this award and I wanted to share what he wrote:
“My wife Amy runs a small business called “Schofield Strategies”, which provides personal branding services, primarily to veterans and their family members. The majority of her business is composed of writing resumes and providing other job-hunting support like creating resume cover letters and Linked-In profiles.
I feel that she deserves to be recognized for her work both in our local community and the military community at large. Is there any more daunting task than sitting down to write your resume? It’s hard for anyone, but even more so for a military spouse who’s been out of the work force for a few years, or a transitioning military member who may have no experience job-hunting in the “real world”. Through her work, Amy has become a cornerstone of our neighborhood. She wrote a resume for a neighbor who was forced to retire due to a medical emergency, and for several neighbors who were breaking back into the workforce after many years as stay-at-home moms. I can’t begin to count the number of resumes she’s written for veterans transitioning to life as a civilian. These veterans are often faced with a 20-year stack of professional records and simply don’t know where to start, or what to pull out of that stake to create a “top of the stack” resume. Her work provides them tremendous relief and peace of mind in their uncertain time of transition, and that’s priceless. Every couple of days I hear the familiar story of how someone landed their dream job due to her efforts.
As her business has grown and as resume orders have continued to flow in, she’s had the opportunity to “pay it forward” by referring overflow clients to other military spouse-run businesses. Her caring spirit and business savvy have allowed her to mentor two other military spouses as they created their own resume-writing and virtual assistant businesses.”
