Resume Prep


In the resume game, it’s survival of the finest.

A resume is not just a job history. A resume is a sales piece that highlights your abilities and experiences. It needs to jump out from the hundreds of others in the hiring manager’s inbox. It needs to get noticed on the job boards—I’ll show you secrets to make yours stand out. And it needs to prove you’re the best candidate for the opening. Otherwise, the phone will never ring.

As a former hiring manager, I’ve used my expertise to hone specific strategies for crafting resumes that get noticed. To land those interviews, I begin with an interview. I’ll spend 2 to 3 hours learning all about you, your past work experiences, and any other activities that show off your problem-solving abilities. Then I customize your resume to highlight you rather than the companies you’ve worked for because, in truth, you’re more than just the sum of your jobs.
