Professional Resume Writing Services Testimonials

“Heather helped me rethink and refresh my resume after it had collected dust for a decade. She listened, understood, and provided excellent counsel. Her insightful, pragmatic and strategic approach worked wonders and produced results. She flat out “gets” it, as she understands the employer side of the hiring process and, equally important, has the gift of empathy for you at the individual level. That unique perspective worked seamlessly for me.”

Professional Resume Writing Services Testimonials

“Heather was amazing! She answered my initial contact within an hour. We actually met in person, but she will talk over the phone as well. She was quick, to the point, asked the appropriate questions and got me. Within about 48 hours (far less than she quoted), she had created not just one, but two great resumes for me.”

“It was such a pleasure to work with Heather on our annual senior management 360-degree reviews. She came to the project with a willingness to work around our list of requests and requirements yet still provide some very insightful guidance and adjustments to our process. Her professionalism towards confidentiality, meeting tight deadlines, and presentation exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend Heather’s services and hope to work with her again on our next 360-degree project and more.”

“Heather was instrumental in collaborating with our non-profit behavioral health agency to bring relevant, effective training to staff that addressed challenge and change related to health care reform. She recruited excellent presenters, coordinated the training with the local community college, and ensured that each detail was appropriately managed. I found her to be cheerful and communicative, checking in periodically while able to move forward independently.”

Resume Writer

Note from Heather McBride, SPHR

I receive calls every day from individuals who share with me that the idea of even writing their resume is the bane of their existence, and gets in the way of moving their job search forward or making a career change. With all the conflicting information and guidance about what should and shouldn’t be in a resume, it can be very confusing, especially if you haven’t been job shopping in a long time.

I have written targeted and generalized resumes for individuals in all careers and industries across the nation. In addition, I have been on both sides of the aisle as a hiring leader and human resources professional for over twenty years, and also has a recruiter and resume writing professional for just as many years. I know what employers are looking for in a resume.

Every person I work with is at a different stage of the process. Some have no idea where to begin. In these cases, I pull their experience, education and skill sets out of them with a variety of interview and document methods. Some have written their resume and it just isn’t saying, or looking, how they want it for the job(s) they are going after…and they might not know how they want it to look. Whichever one you are, or somewhere in between, my passion and goal is to make your resume experience easy and enjoyable.

Employer Confession Time – In this current employee market, HR and hiring leaders are  desperate for qualified candidates. This is great news for you! If you have an outstanding targeted resume, and you believe you have the experience the job requires (even maybe transferrable skills), your chances of getting interviewed and hired have increased exponentially!

Here is also a little secret. What your resume looks like isn’t as important as the content. All that matters is relevant-to-the-employer content, “moving” their eye on the paper they way you want them to see it, and no spelling or glaring grammatical errors.

Being very direct, I would love the opportunity to write your resume and help you achieve your career dreams.

But, if you still aren’t convinced, or you are the DIY kind of person, my upcoming 10 unit, online, resume writing course (launching December 2018) will teach you how to write a targeted resume for any job, with templates and support. And, included in the enrollment as an option, I will review your completed resume and give you feedback/suggestions, if needed, for total peace of mind. Once you take this course, you will never have to pay a resume writer again!
