Are you one of the masses of job seekers who uploads your resume online in as many places as you can find to do so, then sits back and wonders why nobody is contacting you? If so, it is time to take control of your job search and career, decide which specific companies you are interested in working for, and go after the position you want. This guide will show you how.
If job searching isn't your favorite thing, and you want to complete your job search as quickly and successfully as possible, there is no better way to do so than by targeting a specific employer. Rather than casting a broad net, focus in on a list of targeted companies. Your search will be far easier and more efficient and is likely to end successfully far faster.

I just made a loan to a borrower in Vaimoso, Samoa. Join me on Kiva today, and you can make a difference in this borrower’s life, too!
A portion of the loan helped a member to buy a refrigerator, canned items, soft drinks, frozen goods, a new scale, snacks and bags of rice and sugar

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning. – Mahatma Gandhi

Story
Introduction
As a professional executive resume writer, if there is one thing I have learned, it is that nobody sets out to be average. In fact, what people truly want is to be extraordinary...to live a life that matters...to do work that has meaning.

I believe in the potential of my clients to achieve this...to live an extraordinary life and to find work that energizes, excites, and challenges them. Work that they are fulfilled and rewarded by personally, professionally, and financially.

My passion is helping my clients move forward confidently in their job searches. I create powerful, engaging, branded...

❖ resumes,
❖ LinkedIn profiles,
❖ executive biographies,
❖ job search letters,
❖ and other personal marketing tools

...that propel careers forward, empowering clients to land the jobs they want, and reach their highest potential and goals.

Who am I? I am an award-winning professional resume writer, widely recognized as a foremost expert nationwide. Founded in 1996, my firm is one of the longest-standing leaders in the industry, an internet pioneer respected for our unmatched expertise, quality, and commitment to our clients.

What can you expect from me?

▶▶ PERSONALIZED SERVICE! I care about my clients and want to get to know you personally, to meet your needs and exceed your expectations. My goal is to make you a "raving fan" and client for life--working with you at each career step.

▶▶ INTENSIVE EXPLORATION! I listen deeply, ask thoughtful questions, and have a natural intuitive gift and a talent for powerful writing that I will put to work in identifying and articulating your personal brand and career story in an engaging, results-generating way.

▶▶ CUTTING-EDGE STRATEGY & QUALITY! Differentiating me in an industry that often produces mediocre, cookie-cutter resumes that do job seekers more harm than good, I uphold the highest standards of excellence in every aspect of my work. I am obsessive about quality and about producing results for my clients.
