About Laura

I’m Laura Slawson, Master Resume Writer (one of fewer than 24 worldwide), Credentialed Career Manager (one of fewer than 17 worldwide), Certified Professional Resume WriterCertified Digital Career Strategist, and your personal Chief Inspiration Officer!

The Creative Advantage is located in the heart of Bergen County, NJ and serves clients across metro New York, New Jersey and virtually across the USA!

I am passionate about crafting career stories for busy executives, mid-career professionals and specialize in writing for “The Over 50 Job Seeker.”

When you partner with a Master Resume Writer, and multi-certified, award-winning Resume Writer rest assured you’re working with the “Best of the Best.”

I listen actively, provide comfortable conversation and positive energy. You will be amazed at how far you’ve come once you see all your accomplishments on paper! Your completed resume and career documents will lift you up and 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!” “I’m Hired!”

I am passionate about encouraging others and making them feel good about themselves. I don’t provide a boring list of responsibilities (anyone can do that!) I am a skilled writer who brings out the best in you.

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 one-on-one with just me. never use contract writers because they won’t get to know you as well as I will.

Your professional investment will be fair. Because each client has a different story to tell, each investment is unique. There is no “one-size-fits-all” pricing and no prices on my website. Once we speak and I listen carefully to your unique situation, I will be prepared to quote your investment. I want to deliver the best possible investment so you can recoup your investment the very first week on the new job!
