Hello! I'm Dr. Robin.

I know that you are ready to write a better resume for your first ID job or maybe a better one! I’m so happy you are here and are trusting me to show you the process and guide you.

I'd like to take a moment to properly introduce myself. My name is Dr. Robin Sargent and I have a PhD in Education with a specialization in Instructional Design and Online learning. I wrote my dissertation in one year from start to finish on gamification of self-assessments in corporate online training. And while I did get my Ph.D. because a Ph.D. in any discipline was always a goal of mine that is not how I became an instructional designer.

The requirements for getting an ID job today are more clear than they were when I started. You don’t need a blog, or a scoopit page, or a slideshare account, or any of that other nonsense. You just need a great website portfolio and resume. That's where this free guide comes in. I hope you enjoy it and find it helpful in navigating your IDOL journey!
