Service Description

I'm a resume and cover letter whose only goal is to help you get more interviews. You may be a recent graduate looking for your first real job, or an experienced professional searching for a new career.

I can help you prompt hiring managers to take action and contact you for interviews based on how well your present yourself in writing. I specialize in:

*Resumes

*Cover letters

*LinkedIn profiles

I've helped professionals in several industries get first jobs, jobs in new careers, and promotions with their current employers.

I understand resume formatting, using keywords for the job you're aiming for, and presenting your job responsibilities along with your accomplishments to position as an ideal candidate for the job you want.

I also understand specific ways to tie your skills and experience with each job listing so that hiring managers know that you understand exactly what they want.

Aiming for your first job? New job? New career? Let's do it.

I look forward to working with you, soon.
