During a recent career transition, I began working with Carl Lackstrom at Polaris Career Solutions. It was a great decision that quickly proved to be very fruitful. From his expertise in improving my resume to his expert guidance, Carl was invaluable. I thought I had an effective resume, but the improvements Carl made were outstanding and led to immediate results. Carl also took the time to explain why he made each change and why it positioned me better in my job hunt. Carl's advice on how to leverage my job search efforts were equally valuable. His guidance, both strategic and tactical, was outstanding, and I saw practical results very quickly in the form of more resume views and more interviews. Carl is also adept at explaining the process and helping his clients feel more comfortable as they face an often challenging situation. He has my wholehearted endorsement.

Background Check

Carl Lackstrom


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

    With my ability to communicate your value proposition and why employers should hire you, you will find that working with me is worth the investment you make in your career advancement.

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

    I like to start with a brief introductory call with a prospective client to confirm project scope and learn a little more about them. I also always have an approx. 1-hour conference call with my client to review their background in detail and ask the questions I need to make their resume as powerful as possible. Once the interview is completed, I usually have enough information to prepare your initial draft and will work through as many rounds of revision as necessary until you are 100% satisfied with your new resume. It typically takes me 3-5 days to create your first draft after we have had our interview.

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

    I am a highly trained professional with over 20+ years of business experience. I regularly participate in continuing education to improve my resume writing skills and keep up with current trends. My certifications include: Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) Certified Professional Career Coach (CPCC) Certified Career Coach (CCC) Certified Executive Coach (CEC) My education includes: M.A. - Yale University M.B.A - University of Baltimore B.A. - St. Olaf College
