Executive Resume Writing,
LinkedIn Profile Development, and More

for ambitious, serious, career-minded job seekers

I work with you to create compelling career documents that align with your job search strategy. These marketing pieces are an investment in your future.


A typical ROI-producing career package includes…

  1. Strategic assessment – an evaluation of your situation and needs.
  2. Personal brand development – identifying what makes you unique to differentiate you from the competition.
  3. In-depth interview – an engaging 60- to 90-minute information-gathering and strategy consultation to explore your qualifications, accomplishments, and unique value. (Sometimes we’ll do two sessions, depending on the project.)
  4. Keyword selection – I work with you to identify keywords to include on your resume that will increase your chances of getting interviews.
  5. Resume writing & revisions – after I provide you with your initial resume draft, if you want any changes, I’ll work with you to revise it until you love the document (up to 5 rounds of revisions included, with each round covering as many changes as you’d like).
  6. LinkedIn profile content – I’ll create a compelling, search-optimized LinkedIn profile content for you, and we’ll also work on giving your profile visual appeal that will make it attention-getting, memorable, and on-brand.
  7. Recruiter review – an accomplished executive recruiter for Fortune 500 companies with 19+ years of experience, Katherine Moody, will review the resume and share her feedback. Her expert insight is invaluable.
  8. Electronic files of your resume in Microsoft Word, PDF, and plain text, e-mailed to you and also stored electronically by my firm indefinitely.
  9. LinkedIn training / coaching: We’ll touch base on nuances of LinkedIn that most job seekers don’t know about. This component can range from a 10-minute screen sharing to an extensive “LinkedIn Boot Camp” program.
  10. Job Search Strategy Session – a coaching/training conference call with a small group of other clients to go over job search trends and best practices, pitfalls to avoid, and secrets to help you land faster.

I also provide a plethora of related services and products, including:

  • Cover Letters & Networking Letters
  • Strategic Career Bios / Executive Bios
  • Interview Coaching (with executive recruiter Katherine Moody)
  • Job Search Strategy Conference Calls
  • Job Search Coaching
  • Networking One-Sheets

I’m happy to counsel you on which solutions might make sense for your situation.


Every package is custom-quoted. Your investment in yourself and your career will vary depending on your career level and specific needs. Every project is unique, so I need to assess your situation before giving you a quote (I can do this very quickly, though!).

Typical client investments for services and packages without coaching:

  • $900 to $1,500+ for individual contributors/managers
  • $1,300 to $1,800+ for executives

Coaching services to help you land faster can be added to your package (ranges from $200 to $1,000+ depending how much coaching you invest in).

If you’re considering going with a low-cost provider, you might want to read these words of caution.

"I had four headhunters find me on LinkedIn and contact me, and my resume did a great job of showing what I can bring to a company. I'm very excited to be starting my new job. I highly recommend Kelly's services and will be referring friends to her." -Phil F., Director of Business Development, Los Angeles area (via LinkedIn)
