Ever wonder how a fully functional adult (majority of days…) who can multi-task like a boss, is the BOSS, and just gets sh*t done on the daily sits down to update their resume and ends up just staring at the screen like a deer in headlights?
That the act of updating a resume can cause a full-on panic attack, meltdown and make you question your abilities and think why anyone would hire me?! Is amazing but it happens.
Ever wonder how someone could stay in a job for years?
They don’t want to deal with the painful, panic-inducing, paralyzing task update their resume!
Putting forks in your eyes is easier.
Reality is, most people actually don’t stay in the same job for years.
A little treat for stat nerds. The average job lasts 2.2 years.
Layoffs, relocations, working for a bosshole, being bored out of their mind, and other reasons why we are looking for new jobs.
And why wouldn’t you?
There are so many opportunities available where you can bring your awesome knowledge, skills, abilities, experience to employers that will love you! All of you.
If they don’t think you are awesome, there are others out there that will.
The world is your oyster, shuck on that!
Imagine if you had A RESUMe that says READ ME, CALL ME, hire me because you have
- Your awesome sauce, what makes you unique, and invaluable to employers identified, validated and had the exact words to use in your resume, and on LinkedIn to stand out
- A simple, brilliant job search process that actually works
- How to beat the evil bots of online applicant tracking systems
- Easy adds to your resume that takes less than 15 minutes to beat the 6-second scan recruiters and hiring managers give to resumes
- When to follow up to see if your resume was received and not sound desperate
Remember that interview where you were asked “tell me about yourself,” and here's what happened:
You started off telling them how you were born in the wagon of a traveling show, giving them your life story from that point on until today. You see the interviewer’s eyes glossing over, and you just can’t stop yourself because you are nervous AF.
You wonder if this is a trick questions and lose your ability to speak actual words and full sentences. What comes out of your mouth. "Um", "ah", "well...".
And that friends was just the first question…
They haven’t even gotten to the dreaded, heart attack inducing questions like:
- If you had to say you have a weakness or an area that you need to improve in—what would that be?
- Why should we hire you?
- What are your salary expectations?
- Where do you see yourself in five years?
- If you were an animal, which one would you be?
Are probably not the best answers....
Imagine actually looking forward to interviews and no longer sweating through your shirt before you get in the room because you got this and knew
- How to show up and what to do with your hands, eyes, and your listening to understand what you are even being asked face.
- How to confidently answer the most common and dreaded interview questions and handle anything else thrown at you
- When & how to follow up after an interview to stand out from the other candidates

Resume Review FAQs
Do you also write resumes?
Ever met a celebrity or someone you admired and after were like... Hmm... they're not what I thought they'd be like. I believe that's what happens when someone else writes your resume for you. The person on paper is different than in real life. My goal is for you to have a resume that is 100% authentically you. How you get there is being a part of the process. No one knows your work history, what you have done and are capable of more than you. This is your resume and you need to be involved in the process. My review, suggestions and coaching will enhance your resume and show you where and how to stand out. I may say or suggest some lines of genius that you may use if you choose long short answer, No. I don't write your resume.
OK, I hear ya but will you write it for me if that's what I want?
I'm here to support you. If that's the support you're looking for. Reach out and let's discuss.
Does your review include a grammar check?
In the review, my focus in on how best to position you and your experience to highlight your awesome and stand out to recruiters. I'm not looking for typos or grammatical erros specifically in my review. If I happen to see any, I will comment on them but you own your resume so any suggestions/comments I make will be yours to accept as you wish. Should you want your final reviewed for grammar by a professional editor I do offer that service (BTW it is not me. I'm aware and own my ability to speak and write in typos). Contact me to have it added for your final resume.
Can I see an example of a resume?
Of course! You can see my resume in written in this style. Click here and go to the bottom of the page.
Do you guarantee I will find a job?
I offer no guarantee of success of the resumes or career related products including the successful acquisition of a job or failure to land a job. You own your resume, how you show up in the interview and what you say. I'll guide, suggest but you are an adult and therefore are responsible.
What if I don't have Microsoft Word?
We can work with a PDF file of your resume using the comment feature. In this case, you'll need to have Adobe's PDF reader (available as a free download online). Bear in mind, however, Microsoft Word is the universally accepted tool for documents such as a resume, so you may wish to invest in it to use its features to create a professional looking resume which can be easily submitted and transmited via email around the world.
