Adam Zajac is one of only 56 Nationally Certified Résumé Writers (or NCRWs) in the world and is an accomplished career services and brand development professional who has contributed his expertise in résumé and LinkedIn profile writing, career strategy, strategic communications and marketing to benefit job seekers, organizations and small businesses for the past 13 years.
Interested in writing from a young age, Adam honed his abilities as an English major at the University of Utah, and has furthered his business and writing knowledge and credentialing at North Central College, as well as through local and national training programs.
Since 2005, Adam has worked for Vocamotive, Inc., a vocational rehabilitation and career services firm located in Hinsdale, Illinois. He began as a career development professional assisting individuals with physical disabilities and medical restrictions, and soon helped expand the company’s job placement and training capabilities far beyond those which it offered prior to his employment.
Wishing to provide his expertise to a wider range of clients, Adam began marketing his résumé writing and LinkedIn expertise to individuals outside of the vocational rehabilitation environment in 2012, and soon became a well-respected and in-demand expert sought by experienced professionals, managers and senior executives throughout the country. He now runs a standalone Résumé and Career Services division at Vocamotive, and oversees a staff of talented associate writers. His résumé services client base has also grown worldwide and he has worked with clients in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. In 2015, Adam also began to also work with solo-entrepreneurs and small businesses, and has created LinkedIn and related content for medical, legal, finance, marketing, insurance, defense contracting, and real estate firms.
As a respected thought leader, Adam has been widely published and quoted. His contributions can be found on LinkedIn Pulse, Thrive Global, The Naked Truth Magazine, BuzzFeed and in many other publications, as well as Vocamotive’s blog. Career educators at universities in the U.S. and Great Britain utilize Adam’s techniques, and Executive MBA programs at both the University of Illinois and Northern Illinois University refer clients to Adam to provide their students with a professional edge.
Adam is also a proud member of the National Résumé Writers’ Association and Rotary International, and can regularly be found providing guidance, support and volunteer services to organizations throughout the Chicagoland area.
