How I work with clients
WHO AM I?
Attorney ■ Ranked as #1 Resume Expert ■ 4X Certified Resume Writer & Career Coach for Executives & C-Level Leaders

I've earned the distinction of being ranked as the #1 Resume Expert by Recruiter.com and I'm honored to be the country's *ONLY* Nationally Certified Resume Writer who is an attorney.

Attorneys are trained to think in a systematic and logical way. That training converts to stronger writing, analysis, and savvy problem-solving skills.

I possess over 15 years of expertise in resume writing, essay writing, and professional editing. Writing is my passion and my forte, and I've been published in nearly 20 news sources.

► PERSONAL CAREER HISTORY:
After graduating from a top 100 law school ranked #1 in the country for advocacy and #6 for research and writing, I taught college writing courses that spanned 7 years and focused on grammar, punctuation, and syntax. I simultaneously practiced law for 10+ years as a litigator at top-tier law firms and Fortune 200 companies.

I formed The Writing Guru in 2010 to provide winning career documents for executives/C-level leaders and writing assistance with a focus on personalized service. Since 2010, The Writing Guru has served clients in more than 30 industries, 40 states, and multiple countries.

► SELECTED CREDENTIALS:

MY PROCESS:
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
I provide each client with one-on-one personalized service. I do not outsource projects. I coach you, I write your resume, and I target your job search.

My extensive process after the initial consultation and career assessment includes a detailed questionnaire that seeks to extract information regarding the client’s full employment history, career goals, and accomplishments. I research each company the client has worked for, the positions held, and the positions of interest to ensure proper keyword matching. I include a phone strategy session after the first draft is delivered to make any revisions or changes that are needed. This results in a strategic career document that properly leverages the candidate's skill set and multiple job interviews.
