How I Write

Put Yourself in Control of Your Career

  • I use a career storytelling process to understand technical achievements. Since interviewing is all about storytelling, my clients are better positioned to do well.

  • Selecting the right resume writer, particularly for those with technology backgrounds can seem like a daunting task, especially since many writers proclaim themselves to be leaders in the IT Resume Writing industry.  It is difficult to know who to trust so it is important to have a discussion with the actual resume writer, rather than a sales agent, to understand the writer’s qualifications. 

  • I personally speak with each potential client to talk through their questions and see if my background and qualifications are a good fit for their project. In these calls, we’ll talk through your career goals and experience, discuss the approach I would take, and begin to formulate a resume plan to highlight your strengths.

  • Why do I use a basic resume format?Most resumes are first parsed into an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) and all the formatting is removed. I provide a basic format which is more easily parsed into the database.

  • Resume templates are available from many companies, including MS Word. Please be cautious when using columns, text boxes, and graphics.

  • My clients write narratives about their work, answering such questions as the following

    • :What was the project?

    • Who funded the project and what did they expect to get from it?

    • How big was the team and what was your role?

    • What did you do?

    • What went wrong and how was it handled?

    • What went well and why?

    • What was produced and delivered?

    • Who uses it and what is their impression?

  • There is an advantage to using an IT resume writer who understands technology ecosystems and best practices in technology and team management, while also staying updated on trends. I’ll understand how to position you in today’s marketplace.The job market right now is hot, and competition is fierce, so your IT resume needs to describe more than just the technology implementation. There are many people implementing solutions that seem to have similar results

 

I often find that the true differentiator is when we describe the journey to getting to those results that the individual’s competitive edge emerges.

Testimonial

Lisa is amazing! I have never had my resume professionally done before but she made the process easy. She really took her time talking to me about my experience and my career goals. She is extremely easy to talk to and was very forthcoming with great advice outside of just the resume. I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking to get their resume redone or for any career coaching! ~Sophie M.
