RSWorks was created as a solution. Our founder, Andrea Gerson, aspired to combine her expertise as a career coach, resume writer, and social worker to create a product that would literally change lives.
So, Andrea created a dynamic online portal that would automate the resume creation process, provide cover letter templates, and offer access to needed job search resources.
Our pilot program proved that our tools worked. A career counselor who tested the resume tool helped a client land a 30% increase for his previous job, bumping his salary to $85,000. This is one of just many examples of the RS Works portal dramatically changing a career trajectory through optimized job search materials.
From there, Andrea brainstormed how she could make the programming even more robust at launch: Who else could benefit from these tools? What other services could she provide?
Answers: Career counselors at universities helping entry-level students and experienced alumni find work in post-COVID environment. Staffing agencies faced with helping more people than ever due to unemployment numbers the United States hasn’t seen since the Great Depression. And downloadable courses and curriculum so that staff could access meaningful professional development from anywhere.
