Board Position
Board Bio
Now in her 7th year of board service for the National Résumé Writers’ Association and 9th consecutive year of private résumé writing practice, Mary Jo King is a Nationally Certified Résumé Writer (NCRW) and Nationally Certified Online Profile Expert (NCOPE) with more than 30 years of writing experience for individuals and businesses. Mary Jo served as NRWA President in 2018, and is the grateful recipient of the 2015 Vivian Belen Service Award.

Her career path is book-ended by career services, beginning in 1982 as the Denver franchise owner of a national résumé writing company. Early in her association with Professional Résumé and Writing Service, she was recruited to serve—ultimately for 6 years—as Regional Director of a 5-state region with 23 offices.

Mary Jo went on to enjoy a consulting and media career, working with a wide variety of businesses to develop marketing solutions that supported start-up operations, conquered business challenges, and capitalized on opportunities. It was here that she garnered her first awards in writing and advertising.

In 2010, Mary Jo left corporate media to open Alliance Résumé and Writing Service, where she creates résumés, social media profiles, biographies, and marketing tools for small businesses. She joined the NRWA in 2011 with the understanding that she needed the best training available to update her résumé writing skills.

As a former hiring authority, she offers her clients insight to employer recruiting perspectives. Given her length of NRWA service and the breadth of her background in business development, operations management, and résumé writing, Mary Jo is equipped to support the full range of NRWA programs in professional advancement.
