There are some ridiculous résumés out there. In a recent Reddit thread, Redditor showe1lj asked employers on Reddit to reveal the most unique or outrageous thing they've ever seen on a résumé.

Ever wonder what recruiters are looking for when they scan your social media accounts? Well the folks at CareerBuilder did a survey with some important results. If you have anything on this list you may want to go through your posts and delete it.

Have you reached a point where you no longer enjoy your day job? Maybe your interests have evolved, your job no longer suits you, or you’re just not feeling energized by your work any longer. Now what? Although you may now realize you’re in wrong role or organization, moving on can be hard. Changing career paths can be incredibly disruptive, and no one likes the feeling of giving up. When you’re in a job you dislike, deciding whether t...

This is true for job search, too. There are good strategies that will make your search more effective, but there aren't any magic tricks. Sorry.
When you find a trick, a shortcut, a hack that gets you from here to there without a lot of sweat or risk, it's really quite rewarding. So much so that many successful people are hooked on the trick, always...

The definition of success can be quite elusive. There are a number of people who equate success with monetary gain and high profile reputations. But, for the majority of those of us traversing this planet, success can be better defined as achieving one’s goals. And, thankfully, due to the enormous variation among personalities, beliefs, and ideals, our goals can be as vast as our gifts and talents. That brings us to the necessity of l...

Story
Tagline
International award-winning resume writer / job search coach will guide your search for the perfect-fit job
Introduction

I am an international award-winning resume writer who specializes in guiding candidates through work transitions to the perfect job fit. 

I have experienced jobs that turn out to be not as advertised, jobs that turn down an undesirable path, and jobs that turn stale. If any of those circumstances describe where you are, and you'd rather be somewhere else, let's talk. 

It takes courage and confidence to make changes of this magnitude, especially in an economic and employment climate that remains chilly. I work best with individuals who have decided they are ready to transform their life with a position that fits their needs. 

That doesn't mean you have to know exactly what you want to do next. I can coach you through that decision process. It just means that you know you're ready for the change. (If you're not, I'll just annoy the heck out of you with all my questions.)

You see, what I do isn't for everyone. I've written resumes for long enough to know that they don't get jobs or interviews. Not even the stupendous ones I write! It's what you do with a resume that's important. 

I can write the award-winningest resume in the universe, and if you don't put it into the hands of the person making the decision at the company that needs you, it might as well be a blank piece of paper or a jumbled bunch of pixels. Let's make sure that doesn't happen.

By the way, fair warning: I also enjoy laughing and making our time together fun, so if you prefer a sober, strictly business coach, I'm not the best fit. 

On the other hand, if I sound like someone you'd like to work with to reach the next step in your career, contact me.
