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 I 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!” My secret is not just listing your daily responsibilities (anyone can do that)! I am a skilled writer who brings out your personality, markets your valuable skills, highlights your proud accomplishments and composes a “work story” unique to you! I see what you may not see.

I am a positive person who brings a positive spin to all your career 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 BBB.

It’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 get to know each client personally. 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. Click on the Résumé Writing Tab for more details, and stop by our Success Stories page to see what satisfied clients are saying.

My secret to success is simple … I 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, I learn about you and you learn about The Creative Edge.  I look forward to speaking with you, feel free to call me today.  I can be reached at 732-610-8946.
