Why hire a professional resume writer?
Applying for jobs can take weeks or months. Hiring managers and recruiters want clarity about your professional value. As busy professionals who review hundreds of resumes, they make resume selection decisions within a short time (from a few seconds to a minute). My goal is to help you get the job interviews you want and give you the tools to succeed in and after the interview.
We work together to review your career history, select important achievements, and phrase them in compelling ways — to emphasize a match between the target employer’s needs and your skills. Your goals, unique differentiators, experience, and voice drive the process. A resume is not just a document that captures your past results; it positions you strategically for your future career direction.
My aim is to help you articulate your unique measurable accomplishments and expedite your job application process, while engaging you in a focused and time-efficient way. If you are currently employed and not looking for new work, I can assist with revising and strengthening your brand.

- leverage to negotiate a higher salary
