Jessica Hernandez, President, CEO & Founder of Great Resumes Fast

Hi, I’m Jessica. I started this company back in 2008 after more than a decade directing hiring practices at Fortune 500 companies.

What started as a side hustle (before that was even a word!) helping friends of friends with their resumes has now grown into a company that serves hundreds of happy clients a year. But the personal touch? I’ve kept that.

You might have seen me featured as a resume expert in publications like Forbes, Fast Company, and Fortune. And in 2020, I was honored to be named as a LinkedIn Top Voice of the year!

I’m so glad you’re here, and I can’t wait to help you find your next perfect-fit position!

    I read your LinkedIn infographic, which was very helpful and interesting so thank you for that, however, I did notice that further down you said that if someone has no relevant experience or position titles or reccomendations that they should consider not even applying! I think that’s terrible advice! Why would you discourage people from even trying?

    Let me tell you something. Before I got the job I am in now, I had NO relevent experience and NO useful qualifications or anything. But you know what I did? I thought, why not? The worst they can say is no. So I applied, and guess what? I got the job! They said that they didn’t really mind that I had no experience as they said they really liked my personality and enthusiasm. And because of that I am now an entomologist with one of the biggest pest control companies in the world and I love it.

    To further back it up, I have a friend who has a degree in marketing and business (which he has decided he doesn’t want a carrer in) and so he applied to become an air traffic controller. He also had NO previous experience or recommendations. But he went for it anyway and got it!

    I don’t believe that people shouldn’t apply just because they have no prior experience or recommendations or anything because it might not even matter to the employer. Yes, some may look for it and that’s all they care about, but there are those that will be more won over by who you are than what you have.

    So to all of you out there thinking they shouldn’t apply becuase you’re not qualified, I say, go ahead my friend! You’ve no idea what may come of it.
