Hi! I'm Lauren Milligan

and in 2001, i launched resumayday.  

I have worked with thousands of professionals in all stages of career advancement for the past 20+ years. In that time, I've developed tools and exercises that have enabled up-and-coming leaders to take that next crucial career step; and have empowered current leaders to reach previously insurmountable goals. When it comes to getting your next job, I know what you need to do to get there. 

My coaching style is supportive, pragmatic and enthusiastic. If you're on the fence about coaching, consider this. Albert Einstein said, "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."  As a business owner, employer, former recruiter and career coach, I have a 360-degree view on the entire hiring, promotion, and career transition process. And I'm not sure how healthy this is, but I've written so many resumes, I dream in bullet points!  My insider knowledge is the bridge between you and your next career.

Career classes From the comfort of your own home

I teach a series of virtual (Zoom) job-search classes through the Continuing Education program at College of DuPage (Glen Ellyn, IL), and you're invited!

Class subjects include: DIY Resume Updating; LinkedIn; Interview Skills; Keyword Scanners (ATS); Best Job-Search Websites; Salary Negotiations; Remote Working; Self-Discovery; Networking; and more. But it's not just the topics that make these classes so special. You'll take part in assessments, group and individual exercises, peer reviews, and 1:1 support and coaching from me. 

"The class was engaging and the knowledge that was passed on was amazing. It was a lot of information in a short time – I wish I knew all this BEFORE my last job!" 

"Lauren presented everything in a meaningful way. I feel more prepared for what’s next than I did at the start of this class. I wasn’t really sure what to expect from an inexpensive class, but this is some of the best money I have ever spent!"
