I'd like to help you get more interviews and better job offers.​

As a professional resume writer, I create compelling, achievement-based resumes for retail field leaders in the United States and Canada, including assistant store managers, co-managers, store managers, district managers, and regional managers.

I've written resumes for thousands of retail leaders since 2005 and I have 500+ written recommendations on LinkedIn from clients and recruiters. I've listed a few below - check out my LinkedIn profile for more.

Here's a quick look at my qualifications and how I differ from other professional resume writers.

If you'd like a quote for a new resume, a free assessment of your existing resume, or simply have a question or two, send me an email and ​I'll get back to you ASAP:
