Introduction: I am passionate about helping people learn how to compete and win and today's job market. My background includes over twenty years of HR experience, interviewing and hiring thousands of people. I launched my consulting business and work 50% of my time with job seekers just like you and 50% of my time with business leaders and recruiters. This is very rare-most people are resume writers or career coaches or HR consultants. Being all three positions me well to write your resume as a marketing tool for your next role and in a way that recruiters like to receive information today. Each resume I create will pass ATS systems (online filters). My resumes do not look like a graphic designer made them. You can't have it both ways, sadly, they either look really cool or they pass ATS systems in use by 95% of employers. And there are 22 ATS systems on the market! My resume template pushes the envelope on design and can pass every filter. I'd be happy to send you a sample to review. I'm proud to be considered by Thumbtack in the top 4% of resume writers. My prices are not the lowest because, with each resume I write, you get my Job Search Playbook free and access to the online learning library with dozens of tips, worksheets, videos, and articles to help you through each step of the process. And, I'll invite you into the Deep End Job Search, my exclusive Facebook group for job seekers with free advice daily and weekly training. Let me know how I can help your search today.

Resume Writing

Working with Shawna was wonderful. She was very responsive, she worked closely with me and I found her rates to be very reasonable. She revised my very old resume from the 90's; editing and revising the look, and really clarifying my skills and my job experience. As I am a woman of a certain age, I was concerned that my resume would age me out of the current job market. With the resume that Shawna created for me, my resume contained the facts about my education, skills and work history while NOT making age an issue. My new resume worked ! Despite the current job market, I recently secured a new job. Shawna is great. You will NOT be disappointed.

Shawna was a complete lifesaver! She helped revise my daughter’s resume, write a basic cover letter and also helped her with interview prep. So kind and professional and she did this all during the busy holiday season! I have never hired anyone online before and I am so happy with Shawna, I will use her again and recommend her to everyone I know.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Ask about bundled services between coaching, the resume, cover letter, LinkedIn advice. Bonus for all resume clients: get free access to my Job Search Playbook eBook and access to my online learning library of videos, worksheets, articles, and advice for each step in your process. I can also administer the Strong Interest Inventory to help people find career possibilities that match their interests, motivations, and personality. I offer a 20% discount when the inventory and/or coaching are bundled with resume services. Military discounts for active duty and retired personnel.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I want to understand your goals and working style. A complimentary call can be scheduled to talk through your unique situation. It is important for clients to know that I do not meet in person for resume work or coaching, I work over the phone or videoconference.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have 20 years of HR experience and the founder of Deep End Talent Strategies offering full-service talent management services.

Many of my resume clients are in sales, IT, HR, and healthcare, education, and nonprofits.
