Detailed hard-copy guides will also be by your side to help you keep up with the rest of the recruits. They will be yours to keep, ensuring your success will be repeatable long after the conference.

Registration for the preconference is optional, and can be added to your conference registration as an option before check-out.

About Marie Plett:

Marie Plett is a Certified Executive Resume Master who first became obsessed with resumes when she was only 12 years old and tasked with helping her recruiter parents screen out bad applications, sifting through large piles of eye-catching resumes printed out in a wide variety of papers, card stocks, and even laminates. She now works hard to bring resumes back to their “glory days” by teaching ATS-friendly design techniques to other resume writers.

Though she started her professional career developing graphics and apparel for some of the world’s most popular fashion brands, she followed her true calling to become a resume writer and founded in 2004. She now uses her considerable graphic design skills to create exceptional resumes that have won 2 ROAR Awards and 14 TORI Awards since 2016.
