Why hire me?
I specialize in professional branding by helping you distinguish your job search and define your personal brand. I write stand-out resumes, cover letters, and LinkedIn profiles. In addition, I help you get results on LinkedIn by leveraging your network to find those “hidden jobs.”
I’ve written hundreds of resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn profiles, bios, elevator pitches, and professional bios. My expertise spans associate level to C-level professional branding services for professionals in healthcare, technology, operations, finance, energy, sales, and nonprofits.
I’m also a former journalist, so I have insider information in what makes people pay attention to your professional documents – headlines, accomplishments, and statistics. I ask targeted questions, seek insights, and write memorable, actionable resumes and cover letters.
You’ll also receive a personal level of service you won’t find elsewhere. My favorite part of the process is the initial interview where I get to learn what makes your experience matter. And by the way, I believe what you do matters. That’s why I do this. Your success is my success.
If you’d like to start a conversation about how I can help you achieve your career goals – find a job, reinvent your career, or build your personal brand – let’s connect.
