In this report we want to share with you how Javier and Mariela are working together… Mariela is Javier´s mentor and she is helping him to look for a job. During this first month of online mentoring Mariela checked Javier´s resume and suggested changes in order to improve his job search. She corrected errors and also sent to Javier some useful material to write his presentation letter.

“Hi Mariela! I´m sorry it took me so long to answer, I had trouble with mi Internet connection. I`m really excited with your mentoring, it means huge help to me =). I´ve already done my resume but it doesn’t have a picture yet. I have some queries about it, for example, should I mention that I´m still not working although I have a degree?  Is the “Language” part well written? I thank you very much in advance all the help you can give me to correct it. Big hug!  Javier”

Mariela sent him all the corrections and they are finishing his resume! She is so happy with the progress that she wrote to the rest of the mentors a beautiful testimony: 

Hi Everyone! In my case, we are working with Javier in the modification of his resume and searching a part-time job for him. I send him some models for him to copy, and I just corrected his first version and suggested some changes. I also sent Javier useful information that we share in this forum, and we communicate via e-mail too. I feel he is very motivated to rise his opportunities and he is very grateful with this mentoring. It’s very rewarding for me! Greetings! Mariela.

Best regards and Happy Independence Day for both U.S.A (07/04) and Argentina (07/09),
