Creating fresh starts
and new directions

Great Impressions Resume

Are employers "missing" the real you?

Are you a stronger job candidate than what your resume shows?

Let us help you by creating a professional, strategically crafted resume so you can...

 Compete for opportunities at the next level
 Explore new career directions
 Or pursue other career goals!

Here is how we can help:

We start with an 'uncovery.'

1. We start with an "uncovery." A client uncovery is a critical initial step in undertaking a successful job search or career change. We will work with you in a friendly, supportive and strategic way to identify the key experiences and skills that define you as a unique individual and job candidate.

We define your full value.

2. We present your full value. We carefully craft resumes, cover letters and other tools, as applicable, to maximize the value that each client has to offer. The resume that we can create for you will present you as a compelling, memorable candidate by clearly showing the difference you can make, and, just as critically, it will be written to align effectively with today's keyword-driven applicant tracking systems (which rank resumes based on keyword matches) to increase your ability to attract employer interest.

We can help you navigate any bumps in the road.

3. We assist you with navigating any "bumps in the road." A career does not necessarily always move in a smooth, upward trajectory. We have experience assisting clients with challenging circumstances, including employment gaps resulting from layoffs, terminations, illnesses and other factors, and we can suggest approaches for communicating with potential employers about these situations, as applicable, so that you can put your best foot forward in making a strong first impression.

Then you move forward as a stronger you!

4. Then you move forward as a stronger you! With a new or revitalized resume, you are able to provide a more convincing presentation of value and as a result can increase your ability to secure interview requests and job offers. We have assisted numerous clients in the past with their career goals (see Testimonials) and would welcome an opportunity to do the same for you. Contact us today to take the next step!

And ... if making a career change is a priority for you, we can also assist you by creating a "breakout resume" - a resume that shows employers how your skills and experiences translate or are relevant to positions in new industries or employment sectors.

In my job search since sending out the resume you created for me, I have had 3 job interviews and yesterday I received a solid job offer that I will be accepting. I wanted to let you know that I am beyond pleased with the resume you prepared, and I feel it showcases my career history and skills well. This is a tough job market going on right now and what I paid for your service was well worth the value I received."
