About this Speaker
With 8 years’ experience as a professional resume writer and multiple industry certifications and memberships, I help ambitious professionals get the clarity and confidence they need to advance or reinvent their career.
But that’s not how I started out.
I’ve come to consider myself an ‘accidental entrepreneur’. This term really embodies the completely non-linear and unintentional way I found myself in this position.
I was pretty lost after my first-choice career didn’t pan out. I stumbled through a variety of jobs before eventually finding college Career Services, which combined several aspects of my broad-ranging background and, most importantly, my passion for helping others.
When I first started my resume writing business I got a gig offering live resume reviews at a monthly career fair. My booth immediately became the most popular (with lines out the door!) and I quickly discovered that many people make a lot of the same resume mistakes – across the thousands of resumes I saw throughout my 2-year gig.
That’s because a LOT of the resume advice floating around online is outdated, inconsistent with what real-life recruiters want, and all-round just-plain bad.
As a Certified Professional Resume Writer, I have expert insights on the resume writing process developed through helping 600+ professionals (yes, really!). I’ve now built a time-tested, proven-effective resume writing system to craft effective, engaging resumes that get results.
