A note from Erin:
Hello! As writers, presenters, contributors, coaches, and blog authors, our mission is to craft an authentic, branded, and confident resume for every executive and professional (you!) that will land you where you want to be (and have fun while doing it!).
We want you to GET EXCITED about your future! We’ll motivate and encourage you along the way while gently poking and prodding with targeted questions, all as part of my *unique* data mining process that helps me to create the show-stopping resume you need to win over the reader.
We’re so confident in our abilities, that we know our resume will get you to the interview.
Why would we make such a bold claim?
Because our clients have been calling and emailing us for 15 years with great news and positive feedback. We see them get hired, in the jobs they want, again and again!
Because our writers are the “best of the best”. Award winners, nationally published authors, speakers, coaches, presenters, and TV and radio guests.
Because we have been trained by the pioneers of the resume writing industry and we continually seek out more training to stay on top of trends, strategies, and news.
Because our goal is to make sure you LOVE your resume. If you aren’t happy, we aren’t happy.
Let’s begin a collaborative, positive and fun journey. By the time we finish your project, you’ll be excited, hopeful and confident again. We promise.
