Recruiter Tested and Approved Executive Resumesapproved

Find Out What an Accomplished Recruiter Thinks About Your Executive Resume

Should you choose to work with me, the resume I write for you will be reviewed by an experienced executive recruiter as part of our process. My recruiter associate has reviewed thousands of resumes and LinkedIn profiles over the years, and interviewed hundreds of candidates.

Unlike a resume writer who might have been a recruiter 10 or 15 years ago, she continues to work in retained search and has the pulse of today’s hiring managers.

The benefit of this recruiter litmus test is that you can walk away from our process knowing how an expert recruiter reacted to your resume before you start using it. If Katherine sees anything in the resume that she thinks should be changed, she’ll let us know!
