Resume Samples

The samples below reflect just some of the different creative approaches that I am capable of in assisting clients. In writing and designing resumes, I consider factors that include a client’s career story, occupational area and industry, and personality. After learning about each individual’s career situation including goals, skills and experiences, I start with a clean slate in crafting a high-impact document to maximize each client’s ability to stand out and compete in today’s job market. (Certain key identifying pieces of information in each of the samples below have been fictionalized for the sake of client confidentiality.)

If you are intrigued by what you see and would like to discuss possibilities for presenting your skills and experiences, contact me today for a brief, friendly, no-obligation initial discussion.
