About this pro

How does your business stand out?

My knowledge of job requirements and responsibilities, organizations and the recruiting environment are a part of what makes me stand out from other sources. I take a very personal approach to helping you; I am dedicated and care about you as a client. I want to make your experience positive in what can be a complex and frustrating process.Perhaps most important, I know what organizations are looking for. Additionally,after a successful career in human resources management and consulting, I have strong writing and editing skills, perfect for creating resumes and introductory letters. I taught management classes in Interviewing,Recruiting and Workforce Planning for several years, which provides me with an additional perspective not often found.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I enjoy working with people so they can be successful, whether it's a building a new custom resume and introductory letter or coaching designed to provide them with a leg up as they interact with organizations and/or recruiters. The entire process can be stressful, and there are many well-prepared candidates out there, so competition is a challenge. All in all, helping my clients to be confident and well-prepared makes me happy, too!

    Cathy was instrumental in helping me update my resume and create a cover letter and LinkedIn profile that I am proud of. She was extremely knowledgeable, took the time to understand my professional goals, and was very easy to work with. Cathy leveraged her previous experience as a recruiter to help me understand how I can make myself more competitive in the job market. Cathy is very responsive and flexible; I was extremely satisfied with my experience. I highly recommend Cathy!

    Cathy and I haven't finished all our work as I've pushed more work her way since I was so pleased with our experience. She's very timely, professional and offered me some excellent advice in switching my career. She even offered some of her time at no charge for interview prep. Thank you, Cathy!

    Cathy was very professional and it's easy to see how much she really knows when you work with her. She was also very timely and very affordable. I saw immediate results with my new cover letter and resume she helped me with. I highly suggest using Cathy's skills as you get great service and a very skilled craftsman.

    Cathy is a resume pro, with lots of experience from many perspectives. I know she has just joined Thumbtack, but has a lot of business. She is great to work with and interested in you and how to have the most impact. She is very flexible and knowledgeable about the entire resume/interview/coaching process. I highly recommend her

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I do have a standard pricing package. Typically, I need to speak with the potential clients to determine if they currently have a resume, as well as how complex their search may be.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First, I determine what the client currently has and ultimately will need. Some clients have a resume that needs updating, while others need to create one from scratch. I have a simple questionnaire to start the process and design rolling. For those clients who need interview preparation and coaching (one of my specialties), that makes a winning package which provides them with the tools they need.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
With a diverse background, I am well qualified to provide excellent services. My clients are my priority, and I do everything I can to make their resume and job search successful. I have my Senior Professional Human Resources Certification (SPHR), and have worked with almost all types of industries and people at different levels in organizations. My most recent work was as a Senior HR Consultant at Mountain States Employers Council. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism from The University of Colorado and a graduate degree from The University of Denver, plus 20 years of experience in HR in positions ranging from Technical Recruiter to HR Consultant and trainer.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I began my career as an Assistant Buyer in Retailing. One day management came to me and said we need someone to train our Assistant Buyers, would you be interested? . Training was part of Human Resources, so it went on from there-to a variety of industries and jobs.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with all types of clients with multi needs. This experience ranges from Banking and Information Technology to Healthcare and hospitals to a variety of small and medium sized businesses. I feel fortunate to have this range of perspectives.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I have several. Working with people to help them become successful is my goal-- and that makes me happy, too! A recent project was helping a client transition from one type of job into a new industry. Part of the process was determining his current skill and talent base and how those abilities could apply to a new career.
