Does Your Resume Do You Justice?


As an academic, I’ve noticed that much of academic writing is valuable for other researchers, but far less valuable for managers and business people. As a business writer, it’s always been my goal to produce material that people in business find important and useful. I cannot describe the intrinsic reward I earn whenever I get positive feedback from a business person who has enjoyed my work.

That’s why, in addition to my “real job,” I have been offering resume writing services “on the side.” And that’s why the following quote from an actual client was so great to read:

“If any of you are looking for someone to design a professional resume, see Doc Phil. Seriously. I thought he was exaggerating when he stated it was great, but that actually was an understatement.”

My exact words to him before I handed it over were a quote from Adrian and Mickey in Rocky III: “It’s beautiful. Definitely a thing of beauty.”

Let me know if you want me to transform your resume from a simple document into a “thing of beauty.”
