That’s right, as sad as it is to say, it is nearing the end of summer. Back to school and back to work. This is a time of year when companies everywhere gear up their hiring and you will want to be ahead of the pack with a stellar resume and a stand-out cover letter. These along with a job search strategy and follow-up techniques will win you interviews and ultimately the job you want.
Hiring cycles follow close on the heels of holidays and summer. Late September and October are very busy hiring months as are January and February. Job seekers who make contact at the start of these cycles have the best chance of being hired.
Listen, I know the thought of looking for a new job and the entire process can be both exhilarating and exhausting at the same time. With it come the ups and downs of excitement and anxiety. It’s stressful. Having a professional partner with expertise in resume development who also understands the process and emotions from having been on both sides of the desk, I will provide you with the support and instruction you need to get your resume noticed!
We have all heard about the 6 second review—the time that a hiring manager or HR person may initially spend scanning a resume. How do you get their attention in that first glance that will beckon them to keep reading and call you? With a professionally written search-engine optimized resume that zeros in on the target job – that’s how!
It’s not as simple today. You can’t just put together a chronological history of your employment that lists the tasks you performed and expect it to stand out among hundreds of other resumes.

Having experience and credentials in writing professional resumes coupled with a long history of reviewing resumes, interviewing and recruiting, I know what needs to be done to make your resume grab their attention and I can coach you on job search methods to ensure you stay in the running throughout the interview process.
I know it’s not the activity anyone really wants to spend their time on. And I know too how it feels to be searching for a new job. Whether you’re in a job and need a change or out of work searching for a job—it’s tough. I understand. And I want to help make the process and your search more effective and less daunting—so that you can get past the job search stage—get a job you want—and get on with your life.
