WHAT I OFFER
I specialize in traditional ATS-friendly and modern Hybrid résumés. ATS-friendly résumés are proven to beat algorithm-based Applicant Tracking Systems that recruiters use to scan and vet résumés. (You can learn about the importance of ATS here.) My new Hybrid style combines ATS best practices with eye-catching infographic and graphic design elements to deliver a résumé that is both visually-striking and proven to beat ATS. I also offer Cover Letter and LinkedIn Profile services.
 
WHY RESUME GOAT
I am well-versed and up-to-date in the top industry standards and emerging trends. Formerly an English Teacher, Marketing & Communications Specialist, and Graphic Designer, I pull from my unique background and expertise to create visually impactful ATS-friendly résumés that are proven to beat ATS, get your résumé in the hands of hiring managers, and most importantly, land you interviews.
 
I'm a strong believer that your résumé should be a reflection of who you are, which is why I take special care in designing a résumé that takes into account your individual personality, experience, and expertise as well as the best practices for your specific industry. All of my résumés are 100% from scratch and tailored to your individual needs. If you’ve come across a résumé writing style you’d like, I would be more than happy to create something comparable.
