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.
