Donna Svei, Executive Resumes, G+ Profiles, LinkedIn Profiles, Retained Executive Search Consultant
I collaborate with my job-seeking clients to write job-winning resumes and Google Plus and LinkedIn profiles — your core career marketing materials 24/7/365. When your resume and social media profiles speak directly to what recruiters and hiring managers want, your job search takes less time.
Recruiting since 1987, I have completed over 400 retained executive searches. I work with hiring managers and Human Resources on a regular basis. I know what they want to see, or not see, on your resume to move them to schedule interviews with you and make job offers.
My executive search clients include Fortune 500, mid-size, and entrepreneurial companies, major consulting firms, and some of the U.S.’s leading nonprofits.
Before 1987, I was a VP and hiring manager in the financial services industry and a CPA with Deloitte. I speak numbers. Because of this, I know how to quantify information to make your story both compelling and credible.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call me at 208.721.0131 — because you want to know more or because you want to get started. Save time. Get hired.
