How I work with clients
I’m Ashley Watkins, Career Coach and Nationally Certified Résumé Writer with Write Step Résumés, LLC.

I partner with frustrated job seekers to teach them leading-edge job search strategies for overcoming networking anxiety, articulately communicating their career stories, and confidently showcasing how they add unique value to potential employers with their résumés, on their LinkedIn profiles, and in interviews — so they land more job offers at the salary they deserve.

As a former corporate recruiter, I've hired top talent for national nonprofits and multimillion-dollar companies in the banking and manufacturing fields.

Job searching doesn't have to be hard, but it's certainly a struggle for many people just like you.

Reach out today and we'll work together on:

✔ Getting crystal clear about what job fits your unique skills and identify how your personal brand aligns with your target career field.

✔ Crafting high-quality career documents (résumé and cover letter) to highlight the distinct benefit you offer the target employer.

✔ Creating a personalized, keyword-rich LinkedIn profile so you appear in more employer searches and clearly demonstrate a specific value to the company.

✔ Devising a job search strategy that enables you to connect with recruiters, access the hidden job market and use networking techniques to find your next career opportunity.
