► What I Love About My Job: ◄
Writing is what I call my “occupational instinct.” It’s what is in my soul and what I was destined to do. I didn’t expect to grow up to be a resume writer but that’s precisely where my career path took me at the very young age of only 20.
The first resume I ever wrote was for a Financial Director. I remember thinking to myself that I was totally unqualified to do the resume and spent over a week working on it. He loved it and I was hooked! Thousands resumes later, I still love it.
RESUME WRITING IS SO MUCH “MORE” THAN MOST PEOPLE THINK. It’s all about strategy, positioning, and the power of words to create perception of “who” a job seeker is in a manner that gives them a competitive edge. It’s about how to creatively integrate keywords, project highlights, achievements, responsibilities, and everything else that makes that job seeker unique and a valued asset.
After 6 years, I’ve WRITTEN FOR JUST ABOUT EVERY INDUSTRY AND PROFESSION IMAGINABLE. Want to talk about arbitrage and currency hedging? Supply chain management and ILS? Sales channels and product launches? IPOs, M&As, and LBOs? CIOs, CTOs, & Software Engineers? I have written for people in more than 100 industries and, although not a prerequisite to expert resume writing, it is definitely an added bonus.
AS A JOB SEARCH, INTERVIEW & CAREER COACH, I have 6+ years’ experience solving impossible career problems; finding practical paths through thickets of confusion, and integrating dreams and aspirations into achievable plans of action.
✔ I have unique abilities as a resume writer / coach for:
★ Professionals in transition through choice or circumstance.
★ Professionals on the international stage, EMEA etc.
★ Foreign nationals who want to work for French / Latin-American / Canadian multi-nationals.
✔ I can kick-start your stalled job search, revolutionize your interview performance, solve a single pressing career problem, help you create an intelligent long-term career strategy for navigating the twists and turns of the balance of your career, or any other challenging professional issue you face.

Career Coaching Company
- New Job / Career Coach
2011 - 2013
As a New Job Coach, I offer personalised career coaching for young professionals who want to be happier, more productive and more successful at work.
★ NEW JOB Coaching:
It is a coaching programme designed to prepare and guide you step-by-step through your first year in your new job. One of the biggest challenges when starting any new job is finding someone you can trust to go to bring some perspective to your situation, and support you through what can be a bumpy ride as you get to grips with your new role.
Specifically, New Job Coaching can help you in some/all of the following areas:
---> Understanding the company, its vision, goals & objectives and values, its jargon and culture
---> Building successful and influential relationships with your new boss, your team, and other key partners and colleagues around the business
---> Assessing the challenges and opportunities the business faces, and clarifying early priorities.
---> Securing early wins to give you visibility and build trust early on
---> Assessing your skills, knowledge, strengths and contacts against the requirements of the role and developing a personal development action plan to address these gaps quickly
---> Getting control of your diary and planning the time to think
Most of this you won't want to discuss directly with your boss or your induction buddy for obvious reasons. That's why hiring a trained professional to help you through this year makes so much sense.
★ CAREER Coaching for Young Professionals:
Coaching, guidance and new careers advice for graduates, career starters and mid-career professionals.
Do you feel stuck in a dead end job? Would you love to do something fulfilling but you don’t know what to do or where to start? Is your job having a negative effect on other parts of your life? Do you know what you’d love to do but you can’t seem to make that breakthrough?
► I Have Helped Many Professionals: ◄
✓ Get out of ruts they have been in for years.
✓ Handle difficult bosses, co-workers, or staff members that were making their lives miserable.
✓ Beat out the competition (50 people or more) to win the job.
✓ Leave the corporate world to begin successful businesses.
✓ Re-enter the workforce by starting new jobs or new businesses.
✓ Change careers in 12 months or less while holding full-time jobs.
✓ Find work after being unemployed for over a year.
✓ Secure raises and resources others could not get a hold of.
You're bright and talented at what you do.
► So why would you need a career coach?◄
There are many reasons why you might hire a coach. Here are a few:
- You've recently taken on more responsibility, and/or work life balance is in danger of being lost (or has been lost)
- You're bored and no longer feel as passionate about your work ( something has changed within you and you can't figure out what it is or what to do about it)
- You had your sights on a promotion, but then lost it
- You want more recognition and reward, financially and personally
- You're struggling with a difficult boss, colleagues that don't pull their weight or vicious office politics
Sometimes there's nothing to 'fix' or 'resolve'. Many clients have come to me because they want to do what they do best, better:
☛ You love your job, and want to become even more effective. And to feel totally fulfilled
☛ You've started a new job, and want to hit the ground running. You want to make a great impression!
☛ You've become a manager, and want to develop new skills. For example, how to inspire and lead your team or how to get a great initiative implemented.
Coaching is the fast-track route to meeting your professional (and personal) needs. Coaching helps to turn confusion into clarity.
✓ You'll identify and dispel limiting beliefs that are holding your back.
✓ You'll get new insights and strategies to help you move forward.
