Laura C. Slawson,

I’m passionate about empowering you and making you feel good about yourself! I listen actively, provide comfortable conversation, and add positivity to each call. I don’t provide a boring list of job duties and responsibilities anyone can do that! I am a skilled writer who brings out your best. When we’re collaborating, you will be amazed at how far you’ve come once you see all your accomplishments on paper! Your completed resume will give you the boost of confidence you need as you step into your interview!

My biggest thrill is when a client says, “I love my résumé!” “I’m getting interviews!” “I can’t believe I did all this!” and ultimately … “I’m Hired!”  Recruiters say … “Laura, work your magic!”

You worked hard to get where you are, your career documents must capture what sets you apart. Simply put, you need to look great on paper! As a writer, it is my responsibility to ensure what I provide delivers synergy and honesty. That’s why you will work 1:1 with me. I never use contract writers because they won’t get to know you as well as I will.


  • I am a multi-award-winning Master Resume Writer.
  • Exclusivity. You work 1:1 with me, there are no other writers … ever!
  • Professional Development. I hold numerous top industry certifications.
  • Support. I relieve your stress with active listening, positivity, and compassion.
  • Responsiveness. I respond within 24 hours – period! I am easily accessible.
  • Timeliness. Your documents are delivered on time – every time!
  • Collaboration. I keep you in-the-loop each step along the way.
  • No “one-size-fits-all” pricing. Each client is different – each investment is different. You won’t find any prices on my website. I want to deliver the best possible investment so you can recoup it the very first week on the new job!
  • I’m an Industry Leader. I have been trusted to create winning career documents for executives and mid-career professionals who have worked at these prestigious companies (not a complete list):

    PayPal, Prudential, SONY, Hertz, Panasonic, Nestle’, Coach, Honeywell, Becton Dickinson, Verizon, Accenture, AT&T, United Stationers, Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, Citi Bank, SANOFI, Estee’ Lauder, Toys R’ Us, The USAF, The Focus Marines Foundation, “Shark Tank” TV Personality,  “Housewives of NJ” TV personality, Radio Hosts, Politicians, Clergy, Attorneys, Return-to Work-Professionals, Return-to-Work Moms, Career “Pivot” Professionals, CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, IT Professionals and those re-entering the workforce.
