I have three glorious children: two songs, 26 and 21, who are soldiers in the U.S. Army; my 21 year old son will wrap up his deployment in Iraq June of this year. My youngest is my 17 year old daughter, who will graduate in 3 months! My kids are my life :) I also have a four legged constant companion, Oscar, who's been with me for 12 years and thinks HE'S MY MASTER!
I have two brothers, one in CA and one in FLA, and a sister in Washington, DC. I am blessed with such a wonderful, loving family!

More About Me
MUSIC--both playing and listening; art--painting once in a while and worshipping the works of Monet, my favorite artist; I'm also into self-improvement (though nothing Oprah--I like to subscribe to my own theories)!
Work Experience:
I've been self-employed as a Resume Writer since 2001; prior to that, I worked several years in the non-profit sector with Developmentally Disabled adults; as a Service Manager, Employment Specialist, and Recruiter. Prior to THAT, I worked as a Personnel Manager and Recruiter.
Couldn't decide on which path to take, so I have two Associates Degrees in Business Administration and Advertising/Marketing.

My Skills

Resume Writer

Category: Services
I create and revise Resumes and CV's for individuals; whether they're re-entering the workforce, changing careers, or just want their resume updated. My prices are 1/3 of what most professional resume services charge, so I stay very busy! I also offer job search assistance and interview coaching. The bottom line is I KNOW what employers are looking for, and I assist people in getting the job they deserve. Since your resume is what gets you the interview, it's extremely important to have an up-to-date, effective resume! My services are NOT limited to the DC Metro area: thanks to modern technology, I have created resumes for individuals throughout the U.S.!
Relevant Education / Credentials
Over 15 years experience both as a Recruiter, Employment Specialist and Hiring Manager.
Years Experience: 15

Interview Coach

Category: Consulting
I assist individuals in preparing for job interviews by asking questions most employers want answered, including Behavioral-Event interview questions (i.e. "Tell me about a time when you..", "Give me an example of a situation where you..") which prove the most daunting to interviewees--and help them formulate direct, accurate, to the point answers.

In order to effectively create a resume, it's extremely important to be as knowledgeable as possible on each individuals past career choices as well as the career field they're interested in. A great deal of research into various job sectors is an integral part of my job.
