2008–present: Crystal Resumés

Resumé writing based on intensive interviewing, highly individualized for the client’s industry, specialty, and goals. (Interviews typically take two to three hours.) Most clients are executives in all sorts of industries, and senior IT people and engineers. I then take the information I’ve gathered, develop an overall strategy, and write and structure the resumé so that it works at multiple levels, at every stage of the hiring process:

• keywords for scanning by applicant-processing systems.
• prominent main points for a quick scan at the first-cut stage
• bullet points that combine into stories for an in-depth reading by a hiring manager
• content that will speak to every member of an executive team considering the short list

I’ve also done resumé-related consulting projects—templates, procedures, training, and documentation—for a large staffing agency.
