When I was in career transition, I needed a coach. I didn’t have one, so I became one. That experience informs my style. I’m an active listener, invested in your growth and development. I spend time getting to know my clients, so they can know themselves. I’m also a Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) known for excellent attention to detail and quick turnaround time. I built my business entirely through referrals and am proud to have helped 100s of people pursue their dreams.
Do I need a cover letter?
Yes! Especially if the posting asks for one and definitely if you are changing industries. Cover letters are snowflakes- each one is unique. The cover letter is your sales pitch and is tailored to each position you apply to. Your resume is the data that backs up your pitch.
What’s the difference between my resume and LinkedIn?
Resumes and LinkedIn profiles are related and need to be consistent across platforms. But they serve different purposes. Resumes are shorter documents, targeted to specific positions and industries. LinkedIn is longer form, includes more complete details of your career history, and is more narrative in nature. Resume is a short story. LinkedIn is your autobiography.
How long does the writing process take?
The first step is an in-depth conversation about your skills, experiences, and future goals. Then, I start writing! My turnaround time from first call to first draft is one week.
What kind of speaking engagements do you offer?
Speaking topics include but are not limited to: job search strategies; transitioning to a new industry; navigating mid-career; and patient advocacy. My speaking experience ranges from small seminars, to live TV and radio interviews, to standing center stage before 100s of people. Presentations can be tailored to meet the needs, timelines, and budgets of any group. I look forward to helping you and your team achieve your goals.
