My resume writing success story…..and how I can help YOU!
After identifying a gap in the Calgary market for comprehensive and professional resume writing, I started my first resume company in 2007. Despite reservation from my network to this ‘unique’ business venture, response from the general public was immediate – and positive! Local job seekers were eager to explore ways to stand out during a job search. Demand soared.
Pioneering a new path, I became the very first Certified Professional Resume Writer in Calgary, earning the acclaimed credential in 2008 and adding a level of expertise never before seen in the city. Over the years I continued to invest in professional training to keep my resume writing, interview coaching, and job search skills sharp. The investment paid off.
Services rapidly expanded throughout Canada, the US, and international locations.
In early 2014, I earned the prestigious Certified Master Resume Strategist certification, along with several other designations to round out expertise in job search, employment, and career support.
After 9 years of being in business (13+ years in the careers industry) I have personally mentored and trained several other leading professional resume writers, secured 21 industry awards for top-tier resume writing, earned 8 industry certifications, and produced hundreds of resumes for all industries and occupations – demonstrating the value and power of my offerings.
In 2014 I was approached and hired by the #1 professional networking site, LinkedIn!
In an ongoing pursuit for excellence, I became Canada’s first Certified Executive Resume Master.
My executive-level resume writing expertise has attracted the biggest and brightest of business minds and I have delivered high ROI documents for CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, and CTOs, EVPS, VPs, Directors, and Managers all around the world. Clients raved.
Today, my Canadian executive resume writing services continue to flourish – with international demand, and my pledge for continuous improvement isn’t faltering. In addition to previous awards and honors, I am pleased to share the following new recognitions:
