How it all began...
I’m your go-to girl for all things career. But it wasn’t always that way. Before diving head first into resume writing, I was a young professional and a recent graduate feeling the frustration of the job search. (The “three jobs in two years” kind of frustration.) I know what it’s like to read through hundreds of job postings, knowing my resume is being scanned and forgotten (along with all my hyper-relevant skills and qualifications).
Post-college, I found myself bouncing around from sales roles, marketing jobs, and even customer success. But not-a-one of those positions made me happy. So I went back to what I know — I launched (ha!) LaunchPoint Resume full-time leveraging what I studied in school: Writing. Consulting. Advising.
Now, I’ve overhauled more than 350 resumes all across America. With one-on-one consultations and a personalized approach to resume writing, I ensure that your true VALUE shines through that online application portal and lands you the interview. How do I do it? With resumes that grab you at hello. To me, pretense is snotty, so my advice is practical, actionable, and unfiltered.
LaunchPoint Resume is committed to creating a customized portfolio unique to you and your qualifications. A bold one-two punch that ensures employers notice your attention to detail, showing them that calling you for an interview would be their best decision yet.
My goal? Inspire confidence and reignite the spark that comes from working a job you love! Let’s put the future in your hands rather than some anonymous recruiter. What do you say, you in?
