Resume and CV Writing, Coaching, and Editing

Approximately 250 job seekers apply to any given corporate job opening, and studies tell us that recruiters tend to skim a resume in about six seconds. These can feel like discouraging statistics, and job seekers may often think their odds of landing an interview are pitiful.

It’s true that many aspects of landing a job are out of your control, but the quality of your resume is not. Many job seekers, knowing the uphill battle of landing an interview, often blame the factors outside their control for their bad luck. Yet, sometimes it really is your resume.

In today’s market—where the resume must be constructed for both the human reader and the computer reader—you must have a stand-out resume to optimize your chances of securing an interview.

My resume services are always customized to each individual’s needs, but here is an overview of the three main types of resume packages I provide:

  • Comprehensive Resume Packages include a customized resume (I never use templates), cover letter, LinkedIn profile, and interview coaching. This package includes a questionnaire and workbook as well as multiple sessions with me to review and perfect your materials, teach you to understand the mechanics behind the documents, and coach you on interviewing. This package sets you up for success by empowering you to deliver a clear and confident message across all components of the job search campaign. Various package levels are available that are tailored for students, entry-level and early career professionals, mid-career professionals, and D- and C-level professionals.
  • Resume Writing Packages include questionnaires, one-on-one phone or Skype consultations, and multiple review sessions. Various package levels are available that are tailored for students, entry-level and early-career professionals, mid-career professionals, and D- and C-level professionals.
  • Resume Coaching and Editing Packages include hands-on instruction that will enable you to work on your own resume or CV and then receive a final edit from me to ensure we are both satisfied with the end result.

My clients work for or have gotten hired at a wide range of small to mid-size companies and non-profits, as well as multinational corporations such as Google, IBM, Microsoft, Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, NBC, and Wells Fargo.

As a resume writer with a higher education background, my philosophy is to provide you not just with a great resume for right now but also with an understanding of how you can adjust and tailor the resume on your own later. To that end, I provide your final resume in a format and layout that you can easily edit yourself that is intended for both the human and computer (applicant tracking system) reader.
