Résumé Writing
In this tough economy, you need a writer who listens, has insight to your specific needs and is compassionate.  My biggest thrill is when a client says, “I love my résumé!”  “I’m getting interviews!”  “I can’t believe it did all this!”  “I’m Hired!”

I enjoy making people feel good about themselves and it shows in the résumés I prepare. I am your “cheerleader on paper!” You see, my secret is not only listing your responsibilities (anyone can do that), but I am a skilled writer who can bring out your personality, market your valuable skills, highlight your proud accomplishments and compose your  unique “work story!” I see what you may not see and am skilled at bringing a positive spin to all your job search documents. I continuously attend seminars and conferences to keep current on the latest trends in Résumé and LinkedIn Profile writing. I am multi-certified, and proud of the A+ Rating The Creative Edge has earned from the BBBIt’s proven!  My résumés work!

Simply put – I love what I do!  My clients are valued from start to finish with personal attention and follow-up even after the job is done.  Each résumé is designed from scratch, I work one-on-one and really get to know each of my clients. The résumés I design match my client’s personality, I write in your voice.  The heart of my business are satisfied clients who continually refer additional clients my way.

My secret to success is simple … I take time to listen. I speak with you one-on-one and give you “creative” solutions for your next career move. My scheduled complimentary consultation lasts 15 – 30 minutes.  It’s time well spent with me learning about you and you learning about The Creative Edge.  I’m here to listen to you and to help you.

My prices are competitive.  I work with you.  Are checks more convenient for you?  Is a deposit what you can afford to get started?  No problem … let’s talk about it.  And remember, there are always savings when you book packages.
