Hi! My name is Tammy Kabell, and I'm the Founder and CEO of Career Resume Consulting, an internationally recognized executive career firm, known for shaving months off of our clients' job searches, finding them their perfect job and helping them to be paid what they are worth..

Our executive and senior level professional clients are currently getting six-figure positions in 10-14 weeks, not the 12-18-month national average. A large majority receive offers for $80-$250K jobs. In 2014 they have received an average 20-30% increase in compensation over their previous position, proving that you CAN be paid what you're worth in this job market.

I have been marketing our clients successfully into new careers for over 12 years, giving them both the competence and the confidence to win the high-paying position they love and deserve.

But I have also been on the other side of the desk, having 18 years of hiring manager experience for both large corporations and small companies.

I am considered a national authority in the hiring industry, having been featured as an expert multiple times in The Wall Street Journal, NBC News, Bloomberg Businessweek,,,, The Kansas City Star and dozens of other online and paper publications. I am currently the go-to job search expert for Fox News affiliates.

I am also author of the books, "The Job Search Accelerator Blueprint" and "Resume Reboot." We serve the greater Kansas City area and the U.S., as well as many international markets globally.

    Tammy is extremely professional and knowledgeable. She has developed a logical process to "brand" yourself for the market or position you want to move into. All you have to do is trust the process and do the work. I went from a mid-level management position to an Executive VP in under a year. Results speak.

    I don't normally like to write negative reviews but;

    First impressions are important in business and this one has left a poor one.

    Left two voicemails and one email over 5 work days with no response from her.
    She is either so good she doesn't need the business or just unprofessional which would now have me wonder just how good she truly is.
    When your business is helping people it would seem to me a courtesy email saying "sorry not taking on new clients" is not too much to expect.

    I contacted this company and never heard back. Extremely disappointing.

Question and answer

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. When you hire my firm, you can feel confident you are working with the best in the business and have full access to my knowledge, experience and expertise based on 12 years of success in the career field and nearly two decades being on the other side of the desk in hiring talent. In an industry with 50% turnover in the larger career search firms and many of the small firms and sole proprietors using stale and outdated methods that garner little success, it is essential that you put your investment in professional services to the best use by hiring someone who knows the current job market, your competition and how to rise above the other 38 million other job seekers to win your next position fast.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. I would be remiss if I left out what my clients tell me is one of the keys to their success. Whether working with us as an executive search client or a resume client, very quickly into the resume preparation process, within a week of beginning our relationship, our clients consistently start to change their perception of themselves and their value in the marketplace. One of our strengths is being able to articulate your worth relative to your competition, define your strengths and your unique selling proposition to potential employers. This includes a profound change in our client’s overall attitude in their job search. Then, equipped with the knowledge of exactly how to contact decision makers and what they’ll say in interviews once they get a response, they evolve from a frustrated, lost job seeker to an excited, confident one. It happens every time.

Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?

A. "Before hiring Tammy and her team, my view of the job market was extremely negative. I had been burned by another executive search firm that didn’t deliver what they promised. Their resume and the lack of response I saw in the market motivated me to seek additional assistance. My new resume is very upbeat – reads with more ‘excitement.’ And Tammy has introduced several websites and options for a job search that I had not encountered before. She has injected some energy and hope into my job search with her multi-faceted approach.”

Within a week after starting her new career change search, Sherry was approached by several recruiters for their open VP of Operations positions, and was contacted by her dream company within her 4th week of searching for a Divisional President position.
