Creating your career story – one word at a time
With creativity, passion and expertise


Words that Work

Words affect us in different ways. They make us happy or sad, thoughtful, inspired, curious or angry.  They can make us laugh out loud and they can make us sit up and take notice.  That’s the mission of The Résumé Wordsmith. To have headhunters and recruiters sit up and take notice of you and your career story.

Your résumé is a marketing tool – an ad or brochure that says, “Here I am and this is what I can do for you.” In today’s challenging job market, jobseekers need every advantage possible whether following the same career path or transitioning to a new career.

Developing your career story and the tools needed for you to embark on your job search is comparable to putting together a jigsaw puzzle.  One piece or one word at a time positioned in the right place presents a comprehensive picture of your work history when completed.

As we work together, we’ll create a customized résumé and a portfolio of documents that validate your expertise, communicate your achievements and showcase your strengths to illustrate to perspective employers the value you will bring to the company.

So here I am.  Ready to help create your career story, one word at a time!
