Introduction

WHAT I DO | MY VALUE TO YOU

As chief career writer and partner (owner) with CareerTrend.net, I write:

☑ Resumes that influence;
☑ Compelling dossiers that are both content- and story-driven and elegantly designed;
☑ Energizing cover letters, poignant biographies, stand-out LinkedIn and other social media profiles and invigorating professional summaries.

If you are a professional or executive in career transition, or desire to ignite your existing career, hire me to personally shepherd you through your career branding process. As one of only 27 Master Resume Writers globally, with a BA in writing, certification as an Interview Coach and 14 years as a full-time career strategist, I will drive your career forward.

An intuitive researcher, I unearth clients’ compelling story details and apply an inventive approach to career positioning documents. As well, I develop blog posts for careerists desiring to boost their global visibility and value.

You may find me blogging at the CareerTrend, Glassdoor, US News | Careers, ResumeChicks or TalentCulture blogs, or sharing careers and other talent-promotion and leadership-related musings via Twitter at @ValueIntoWords.

As "The" Texas Executive Resume Writer, my client reach is global, and I welcome collaborations via Skype, telephone and email.

You may reach me at 903.523.5952 or jacqui@careertrend.net.

Important message for all careerists - and, gravitas can be learned at any point in our careers! (via +Dorothy Dalton)
 
Many people think that gravitas can't be learned  -but it can. It's about those daily habits we read so much about!

“Starting a business with nothing taught me how to run lean,” says Susan Petersen, founder of Freshly Picked, which makes moccasins for babies. // article via +Whitney Johnson 
After my first year of college, my mom announced she was out of money. I’d have to come home and work. A year later, I returned to school knowing that no matter what happened, I’d always be able to support myself. This confidence proved invaluable when I

Luck is when preparedness meets opportunity. ~Seneca
Luck is what happens when preparedness meets opportunity. ~Seneca Most of us have been guilty of the “they’re so lucky” assertions. I hear it from careerists in regard to wishes for better opportunities and wistful envy of a colleague’s or friend’s advancements while they are left in what feels like the dust of opportunity and …

" ... your 'crystallized intelligence' — your knowledge, expertise, wisdom, your ability to navigate your workplace and personal life — continue to grow into your 70s." (Thank you, +Shahrzad Arasteh!)
 
"The existential question is, is your life meaningful? Are you fulfilled? And what U.S. researchers find is that people say they are." I recommend listening to the audio or reading the transcript for this segment; they contain much more info than the article. 
The midlife crisis is entrenched in American popular culture, but mostly, it doesn't exist in more than a mere 10 percent of the population. Here, five ways we misunderstand midlife.

Laura Filip partnered with my husband and me to find our little cabin on the lake, and we are so happy here! Home-buying can be stressful at times, and throughout, Laura remained centered, patient and steady - even going to the mat for us when needed, at one point. She also is well connected in the industry which is a value-add when it comes to ensuring the various moving parts of the process go as smoothly as possible. I would recommend Laura if you are seeking someone who is knowledgeable, trustworthy, friendly and very hard working - a true partner in the home buying (or selling) process!
