Service Description

See my LinkedIn profile at http://www.linkedin.com/in/mariewatkins

I have over 18 years of technical recruiting experience for companies like Microsoft, Verizon, Motorola, Qualcomm, SAIC, General Atomics, and more. During that time I've seen hundreds of thousands of resumes for technical professionals and I know what works and what doesn't when you are trying to get seen by HR and hiring managers.

I can help you focus your resume to showcase your skills in a way that will make your resume better match the keyword algorithms used by the online resume upload systems. I can also help you improve your LinkedIn profile so recruiters find you. Additionally, I can work with you to create a custom job search strategy.

I love to write and I love to help people find a better job. Let me help you.
