How I work with clients
Today’s job search process, from résumé to interview, is the result of constant changes in technology, the economy, and employer needs and hiring practices.

Even an accomplished writer will probably not have the full range of knowledge necessary to create job search documents that will survive increasingly sophisticated applicant tracking systems. LinkedIn profiles have become a critical component in the job search process. Interviews, too, are becoming less personal as employers streamline the hiring process by adopting new technologies.

As a nationally certified résumé writer, certified career coach, and job search and LinkedIn strategist, I can

- Ensure that your resume and related documents communicate your unique brand, leadership style, achievements and value in a compelling way
- Develop a comprehensive targeted job search strategy
- Prepare you for the interview process
- Create customized, proactive, long-term career management strategies

If you are an executive-seasoned professional, manager-experienced professional, or student-new graduate, I can provide you with the tools and strategies you need to conduct a successful job search.
