Service Description

My background as an HR consultant includes organizational development, recruiting, workforce planning, training, compensation, and career planning. I combine my business experience with an excellent command of writing and editing. My education reflects this same dual expertise. I have a BA in English and an MBA with an organization behavior focus.

My work in HR guides my work as a resume editor. I understand what hiring managers are seeking because I have been part of those decisions. I've always been fascinated by what influences individuals to reject a resume or initiate an interview. I take these perspectives and help candidates represent themselves effectively.
