Does your résumé tell the story of your career?

It should. But a lot of people feel daunted by the idea of telling their professional stories. Some people are too humble. Some people list lots of information but don’t include the context that helps prospective employers understand the value of the candidates before them. Some people just really, really hate writing résumés.

Whatever your sticking point, I can help you create a résumé that tells your story and helps you shine. An editor by trade, I ask questions that get to the heart of what you do then flesh out the details that make your work unique. I also suggest content to cut. Résumés aren’t meant to mention every detail of every job you’ve ever held.

I format your résumé for optimal readability. I make it easy to skim: an HR professional spends mere seconds with a résumé before sorting it into “Possible” or “No.” I lay out your experience in the way that best conveys your story. And I ensure that your final document is designed, formatted, and proofread to telegraph your professionalism.

For those who may not wish to embark on a wholesale overhaul of their résumé, I offer a Résumé & Cover Letter Assessment. I review your resume, make high-level suggestions for improvements, address issues with grammar, fix typos, and tweak formatting as needed. (I know some folks dislike tabs, but the space bar is a less-than-ideal way to try to make things line up.)

I also review your cover letter with the same eye for detail and call out any opportunities I see to improve your message. I encourage clients to write their own cover letters, daunting though they may be, but the editor in me is happy to help you polish your prose.

Allow me to share a few words from a few of my clients:

“When I knew my resume needed a new format and a ‘professional’ touch I was referred to Beth. Beth's approach to the process was smooth, seamless, and insightful. She asked all of the right questions, provided outstanding results in a timely manner, and brought my resume to life. Not only was I completely satisfied with the final product, but I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated Beth's humor and engaging interactions. She was a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to refer her to friends and colleagues.”

— Laurie, Human Resources Manager

“I've had the pleasure of knowing Beth since 2008, and she recently worked to make my resume and other career documents shine. Her rock-solid intuition, pure talent, and keen eye for the 'little details that make a big difference' are unparalleled. Her genuine nature, warmth, and professionalism are evident in her work as well. I enthusiastically endorse Beth for any project, big or small.”

— Amy, Educator

“I contacted Beth to help rewrite my resume and am thrilled with the result. My resume no longer reads like a series of lifeless bullet points. It now tells the story of my career and allows my personality to shine through. This girl has talent! Not only does Beth do great work, she's genuine and fun - such a pleasure to work with.”

— Robin, Certified Health Coach and Personal Trainer
