Resumes

Copy of Why Hire a Resume WriterBefore I tell you WHY you need to hire a resume writer to help you polish your professional brand, I’d like to tell you a quick story.

I once knew a sales girl who would get a manicure right before an event she arranged for physicians. I used to think she was way too self-conscious. 

And then I got my first professional manicure. I went bold with red polish for my birthday. My hands looked great. I couldn’t believe how put together I looked with my nails polished.

Same thing for my brows…I got my brows waxed one time during a haircut. I was hooked. That little shaping exercise changed my whole look so much that other people noticed something different about me.

What was that something? Polish. I looked better and carried myself a little taller because I made a few tweaks.

That’s what I’m here to tell you.

When you’re looking for your next opportunity, it takes a few tweaks to get noticed.

A resume and a decent cover letter may get you a few interviews, but to get the dream job or your next major project, you need that pro polish to help you stand out.

DIY Isn’t Always In Your Best Interest

It’s tough to do your own nails or brows or hair. It’s even tougher to craft your own “what you do” statement, resume, cover letter, top-ranking LinkedIn profile, or portfolio website.

That’s because you’re often too close to your work. You want to be humble. But when you’re trying to stand out from the crowd, you have to be bold. You have to be authentic and memorable. You have to to be polished.

It’s the same reason you go get someone to tailor your suit. You need pro polish.

That’s where I come in. I’ve helped hundreds of pros like you with their resumes and online presence.

A few stats:

  • My personal LinkedIn profile ranks in the top 10% of all LinkedIn users. I get at least 200 views a week on my profile. I can help you get similar results and show you how to find hidden jobs through LinkedIn. 
  • I have a 60-70% success rate for getting an interview or initial phone chat from my resumes, cover letters and project proposals. I don’t just write great foundation documents, I educate you on how to use them. 
  • My clients almost always get an interview within 1-2 weeks of finishing their brand training with me. I get calls, emails, and texts asking for guidance on what to do next.

I’m not just a writer; I’m here to help you succeed and stand out. That’s why I call myself a resume coach. 

What’s My Secret?

I really analyze what the company wants. I look for a potential audience. Then, I picture having a coffee line conversation with the person I’m writing to. That’s where I start and I add what I consider another 3 minutes to the conversation. When I get that rough conversation in my head, I formalize it and keyword it for a winning resume, LinkedIn profile, or cover letter. I can teach you how to do this effectively AND efficiently.
