Here’s our credentials + why you should team up with us:
We have dozens of satisfied Career Consultation customers across the country, many of whom have gone on to find exciting preservation jobs. While it is great to have your classmates and friends look over your resume, we can provide feedback on your materials from a different perspective. Meagan and Laura at HISTPRES have read thousands of historic preservation job descriptions. We know what employers are looking for. We have also had the opportunity to review almost 50 historic preservation resumes from our Career Consultation clients, so we know who you’re up against. Meagan and Laura have Master’s degrees in Historic Preservation and have both successfully attained full-time positions in the historic preservation field. Our knowledge is particular to the field of historic preservation, unlike other resume consultation services. If you tell us what area of preservation you are interested in, we can tell you exactly where to look to find a job doing what you love.

Selected client quotes:
After reading your review and comments, I am certain I can compose a strong and impressive cover letter and confidently apply to jobs in the historic preservation field…your service is unique, professional and extremely useful. – Lindsay, New York City
This was extremely helpful. Both the resume comments and internship suggestions were exactly what I was looking for. It can be somewhat daunting to step outside of the traditional academic job search, and now I feel like I’m standing on solid ground again. – Katherine, Paris
Obviously we can’t guarantee that you’ll be offered a job after our consultation. We also can’t promise that the jobs we suggest will fit your criteria to a tee, especially if you have geographic constraints. Because we post as many jobs as possible on HISTPRES, it is likely that the jobs we suggest will already have been posted to our site. We will search beyond the usual places we find jobs for HISTPRES, but we cannot guarantee that any of the jobs we suggest will not have already been posted on HISTPRES.
