Introduction: I am Arlen Crawford, Resume Writer and Employment Consultant. My background includes working as a director of recruiting, executive search recruiter, and contract recruiter, as well as business owner and operator. I specialize in writing resumes with key word optimization to get through an Applicant Tracking System (ATS), career transitions from one discipline or industry to another, re-entering the workforce after time away, attracting recruiters’ attention, and enhancing your presentation (standing out). I sincerely enjoy helping clients prepare for their job searches to enable them to improve their work situation, to better enhance their career progression, their financial possibilities, and their general happiness with their working life. Many of my clients have reported great success with a more results-oriented resume. They have gotten more responses leading to more interviews, and ultimately better career choices. I also offer interview counseling and job search tips for greater success. Also, I would like to emphasize that I do not charge extra for a cover letter, thank you letter, or linked-in help. I also provide counseling as needed concerning your job search. We also offer quick turnaround of approximately 48-72 business hours. Please see reviews for clients' kind words concerning their satisfaction with the process.

Arlen did a great job on my resume. He was professional, took the time to talk with me, and gave me advice. I would highly recommend Arlen for your resume writing. He also provides a cover letter, a thank you letter, and a LinkedIn profile. If you need to ask him any questions after he is through writing your resume, he is available. He is awesome! Stephanie

I liked the fact that Arlen seemed genuinely interested in helping me find the job that suits my needs. There were other offers of very high quality sounding work..but it seemed like their end goal was to write me an excellent resume, not help me find suitable employment.
