Whether you are looking for a professional resume to give you a competitive edge over your peers, facilitate a career transition, or simply get your documents in order, you should be working with a professional resume writer and career services expert with proven expertise in identifying the key skills and abilities employers crave.
My resume writing services have been sought out by some of the most talented and influential people in Calgary, and throughout Canada, to include a former member of Prime Minister Harper's innermost circle, CEOs of publicly traded companies, trailblazing entrepreneurs, high-ranking military figures, and award-winning professionals at every level.
The best and the brightest seek me out as they can appreciate the unique blend of skills I bring to their project that expands beyond merely writing resume documents, and into my background as a former executive recruiter capable of understanding the recruitment requirements and desires of senior hiring managers across many industries.
I have written resumes and provided executive recruiting services to corporate executives, professionals, entrepreneurs, tradespeople, and new graduates throughout Calgary. My clients are drawn from industries throughout Alberta including oil & gas, pharmaceutical, finance, real estate, logistics, and mining.
When you partner with me, you benefit from front-end expertise and never have to worry about your resume project being outsourced to anonymous ghost writers with unknown credentials or expertise. Remember, if the owner of the company isn't actually writing your resume, then who is?
Unlike many of my competitors, I do not farm out resume writing projects to anonymous ghost writers or inexperienced staff writers. With me, you know exactly who will write your document, and the skills and experience that will be at your disposal during your resume writing project, or interview coaching session.
I will engage you in an hour-long telephone consultation, utilizing the same information collection and behavioural interviewing skills that were developed over 15 years in the recruiting, executive recruiting and resume writing industries. As such I have no need to rely upon two-dimensional worksheets and questionnaire templates that are designed to have you do all the work!
Why Recruitment Industry Expertise Is Key!
If a resume writer has never worked in a consulting recruitment environment, then how can they truly know what hiring managers in many different industries and professional specialties look for in a job seeker, resume, or interview?
To do your resume or interview project justice, you should be looking to partner with a resume consultant who has extensive experience in the executive recruiting and staffing consultancy industry, in addition to being a proven expert resume writer. My recruiting experience is drawn from several years owning a successful Canadian search firm in addition to consulting for Robert Half International, the world's largest finance recruiting firm, and the Edmonton headquartered David Aplin Recruiting.
When you engage me, you will have a unique opportunity during your resume writing or interview coaching project to ask for expert advice about the best way to market yourself to a Calgary employer, what they really look for, how they score your interview, or perhaps why you've not been successful in your job search thus far.
Partnering with an award-winning recruiter and well known resume writer, with diverse cross-functional knowledge in the various ways Fortune 500 companies and small owner managed businesses conduct their hiring process, could make all the difference for your resume writing project, your interview coaching workshop and ultimately your career!
