Hello and thank you for stopping by!  I’m Laura Slawson, CCM, CPRW, CIO Credentialed Career Manager (one of fewer than 20 worldwide!) Certified Professional Résumé Writer and Chief Inspirational Officer at The Creative Advantage located in the heart of Bergen County, Fair Lawn, NJ, serving clients in metro New York, New Jersey and virtually across the USA. I compose dynamic resumes, cover letters, thank you letters, LinkedIn Profiles and more! Composing career documents for busy executives is my specialty! Let’s collaborate and craft your career story together!

When you call a Professional Resume Writer, you need someone who listens to your story, 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. My career documents empower you to interview with confidence. I don’t provide a boring list of your daily responsibilities, anyone can do that. I am a skilled writer who brings out your personality, writes in your voice, markets your valuable skills, highlights your proud accomplishments, and composes a “career story” unique to you! With objectivity, I see what you may not see.

I collaborate with C-Suite and Mid-Level Executives, and specialize helping the “Over 50 Job Seeker.” You worked hard to get where you are today, the documents you need must capture what sets you apart, you need to look great on paper! I tailor my writing directly to your needs and do not offer “gold,” “silver,” or “bronze” packages.  I treat you as an individual, not a package. As a writer, it is my responsibility to be certain what I provide  delivers synergy and honesty.  That’s why you will only work with me. Contract writers won’t get to know you as well as I will.

I’m excited to help you land a job you enjoy and deserve!

There are hundreds of Resume Writers to choose from. Why work with me?

· Exclusive Writing. I compose each document exclusively. I get to know you individually, there are no other writers.
· Professional Development. I am current on cutting-edge trends in writing and career development.
· Support. I relieve your stress by listening carefully. You will find our conversations easy and comfortable.
· Responsiveness. I respond to calls and emails in 24 hours – period!
· Timeliness. I deliver your documents on time – every time!
· Collaboration. I ensure you are well informed each step along the way.

Your professional investment will be fair! No two clients have the same needs and goals, that’s why there are no prices posted.  We collaborate with comfortable conversation and once I understand your situation, I quote your investment. I want to deliver the best possible investment.  I hope you’ll be able to recoup the entire amount of your investment in your first week on the job!

Your investment in hiring me reflects years of writing, professional training, certifications, continuing education, and more than 25 years’ corporate business experience.  Each career document I create will empower you to step out in confidence!
