Résumés  and Cover Letters

You wonder--- How do I make my résumé stand out and get recognized? 

How do I address gaps in employment or lay-offs?

Will my résumé  get through the applicant tracking software (ATS)?


That's why you need me.  I'm a member of both the National Résumé Writers Association (NRWA) and the Professional Association of Résumé Writers and Career Coaches (PARWCC).

I continually study with both organizations.   I'm a certified professional résumé  writer (CPRW)


In addition, I'm not just a résumé  writer; I was a writer/trainer/instructional designer for many years.

I was a job-seeker who submitted dozens of résumé to employers; so, I understand how your résumé and cover letter are your marketing materials.

A résumé  is not a listing of everything you've done in your entire life.  It is a concise description of your accomplishments. It should summarize what you have to offer an employer; your added value.


I partner with you on the organizing, developing, and editing; so, you'll have a résumé that expresses who you are and what you've accomplished. My ultimate goal is always to have your resume effectively and efficiently communicate your value proposition, so you land an interview.

​​I offer standard hourly billing and packages (Click here to view Pricing.)

Customers often ask how many hours it  takes to obtain a well written résumé.

For my customers, the typical time has ranged from 2-4 hours. This usually includes my spending 1-2 hours reformatting the customer's original document and studying the customer's industry and role. This saves a lot of time in the long run.  But, a lot of the timing depends on the state of the original document and thus how much work needs to be done.
