Bold, Authentic & Irresistible Resumes
Grab recruiters by the shirtsleeves and make employers sit up in their chairs. The result? More interviews. Better job offers. Higher salaries.
Your resume has a crucial job to do. To break free from the competition. To wrangle your career history into a clear, succinct brand. To intrigue, inspire, and compel recruiters and employers to call you right away.
This goes for LinkedIn, too.
Think about the impression you’re trying to make. Consider the value you offer: your high-performance track record, your push-the-envelope accomplishments, your ability to empower teams. Your vision. Your pragmatism. Your fierce point of view.
Whether you’re a CEO exploring board opportunities, a senior executive changing careers, or a leader rising to executive ranks, I can help you reach that next level by infusing energy, clarity, and originality into your resume and LinkedIn profile.
deep executive experience—yielding results
Over the past 15 years, I have helped 5,000+ executives land new positions and board seats with Fortune 500, nonprofit, and start-up organizations around the world. Many of my clients secure interviews and job offers within days or weeks of receiving their new resumes. This is quite a feat, particularly since the average search can last up to 12 months, and executive searches often extend twice as long.

resume writing that’s a bit different
I develop resumes and LinkedIn profiles that sound like you, capture attention with the right audiences, and streamline the path to your next position—while increasing your salary at the same time. It’s the deliberate personalization of your documents that makes me different from other resume writers.
Here’s how I know what to do…
Before I became an executive resume writer, I worked for a recruiter. I screened hundreds of resumes each day, for hours at a time. Almost all of them were exactly alike. However, once in a while I came across a resume with a heartbeat. One with energy, authenticity, a real human voice. Every time this happened—every single time—my boss and I stopped what we were doing, printed the document, and talked about it. We were inspired to find opportunities for that person. We immediately called to schedule a meeting.
Now that I’m writing the resumes, it’s my job to make employers and recruiters stop in their tracks. I do it by asking the right questions, distilling information, and drawing on years of experience as a professional resume writer with an affection for great writing. In addition to showcasing your achievements through concise, powerful metrics, I infuse a touch of personality into your documents so you can land a new position, increase your salary, and be yourself at the same time.
I develop every document individually—thoughtfully—to create a highly customized, razor-sharp presentation. Your bold, original content will give you a competitive edge for job opportunities and salary negotiations.
