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.

What's YOUR Big Hair Audacious Goal? | inspiring post by +Cindy Larson and Dave Hynek !!
I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth. No single space project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important for the long-range exploration of space; and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish." - John F. Kennedy, A Special Address to Congress, May 25, 1961 We’ve been talking to a numb...

The threshold ... may make or break your next career move. It depends upon your initiative to push yourself one more emotional rep beyond what you want.

This threshold moment, when crossed, will instantly make your story  — and you — a better version of yourself.
Why you should write a transcendent resume. Resume story. Resume pain story.

The key to interview victory is daily career workouts well in advance of the interview. Prep your career message muscles, ferreting out and refining career stories and fine-tuning your interview instrument well ahead of the interview meeting.

Certain traits and behaviors make CEOs successful (and well liked), and are integral to employee happiness. Conversely, there are behaviors that, if vetted out early, can signal job seekers that an opportunity may not be a fit, after all.
