Resume SERVICES

The resumes I write and makeover are modern marketing collateral designed to engage, persuade, and uplevel you and the compelling value you bring to the table. If your current resume is passive with a laundry list of responsibilities and dots that don't connect, I'll help transform it into a document that will stand out and help get you noticed.

As a resume boutique service (not a resume mill), I create resumes that are Applicant Tracking Software (ATS) formatted, keyword optimized, rich in action phrases, and that include a strong career summary with value proposition statements and highlights of your key skills and accomplishments. Included in the service is a resume-building questionnaire, an interview/strategy phone meeting, a finished proof review phone call, and helpful job search tips and advice throughout the process. 

NOTE: If you're not sure where to start or what needs to be done next in your job search and/or career planning, including whether or not you need a new resume, I highly recommend first booking a "First Steps Strategies" one-hour coaching session to maximize and clarify what your job search plan of action should be. See details below under "Coaching Sessions."
