San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) December 28, 2007
That was the response of Shimmering Resumes to Black Wednesday, the day Paris Hilton learned that her grandfather is giving 97% of his fortune to charity.
To ease her distress, Shimmering Resumes has offered to write her a resume absolutely free, for any job she chooses to seek.
"Leaping to the rescue of the world's best-known heiress is not everyone's gut response," said Paul Freiberger, president of Shimmering Resumes, a professional resume-writing service. "I've heard a lot of less-than-generous comments."
"This young lady just had over $2 billion snatched from her future. Show a little compassion," Freiberger added. "It may not be so easy for her to create another perfume line or promote a movie, CD, or line of handbags. Can't we all relate?"
Freiberger said he is not seeking Hilton's endorsement for a line of resumes or CVs. Should she offer one, Freiberger has not decided what he would do.
"But if I can help Paris Hilton with career planning and get her a real job, that will be good for society. And for her," Freiberger said.
If Hilton accepts this offer, Freiberger will treat her like any client, except for background.
"I usually recommend preparing one or two resumes for each client, so they can be ready to apply for jobs with different requirements. I'll tell Paris she needs a couple of dozen," Freiberger said, adding that he would point her to the sample resume on his web site. "I'll tell her quite directly: 'This is the most important document of your life.'"
"One resume would be a synthesis and cover her whole eventful life. I'll call it Distinguished Debutante and Heiress. But she also needs a resume for her music. One for her acting. One for her handbag designing. I relish the challenge to help this many-sided girl," said Freiberger.
What if Paris isn't quick to look for work?
"If Hilton can't bring herself to scan the jobs on Craigslist or Indeed.com, I'm sure the rest of us will understand," said Freiberger. "Getting laid off this time of year is tough." Freiberger said his firm offers executive coaching and morale boosting to help the recently unemployed cope with the shock.
What about volunteer work for Paris?
"She could bundle her vegetarianism and anti-fur activism in a resume offering assistance to any of the presidential candidates," he added. "It would certainly spice up the race."
In October 2007 Shimmering Resumes offered to write a free resume and provide interview tips for Barry Bonds, after the San Francisco Giants cut him. Bonds has not responded, but the offer remains open.
