FREE Resume/Cover Letter Reviews for EVERYONE to aid Ondoy relief efforts

On September 26, 2008, Typhoon Ketsana, known in the Philippines as Ondoy, ravaged southeast Asia, leaving hundreds dead and many more homeless.

Sweet Careers already offers free resume/cover letter reviews for current college students and recent graduates. For the rest of October, Sweet Careers will be offering free resume or cover letter reviews to EVERYONE to aid in the relief efforts in the Philippines.

Here’s how it will work:

  • To receive a free review of your resume or cover letter, donate any amount to the Philippine National Red Cross. Your donation will be in Pesos – (here’s a calculator to convert USD to PHP). To receive a free review of both your resume and cover letter, donate more than P1200 (approximately $25.00USD).
  • In the comments section of this post, or on the Sweet Careers fanpage wall, let me know the amount you donated in pesos – this will help me keep a running total.
  • E-mail your resume and/or cover letter to me at in either Word or PDF format. If you have a specific position to which you are applying, a link in your e-mail to the job description would be helpful. If you do not have a specific position in mind, please tell me what type of position or industry you will be applying for.
  • In your e-mail, also indicate the username you used to make the comment on this page and the amount you donated so I can match you with your comment.
  • I’ll review your resume or cover letter in a brief video response (videos are password protected to ensure your privacy).
  • For college students or recent grads – if you would like your resume/cover letter to be reviewed, I will still provide a review even without a donation. However, feel free to donate and leave a comment on this post.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please DO NOT send any money to me.

While I cannot foresee how much assistance this service will generate for the relief efforts in the Philippines, I know that ANY amount of aid will help. Thank you to everyone who has already contributed the Philippine National Red Cross. Of course, prayers are always desired for all those who have lost family members and homes in this disaster.

    Larry, I'm really sorry to hear that. Definitely only give to organizations you're familiar with, such as a national red cross.

    I tried to help, I sent some money to some agency only to know it was a scam. This country is ripping me off.
