Thank you for your interest in my resume writing services. I have been servicing professionals from all career paths throughout the Greater New York Area (NYC) and on Long Island to around the world for more than two decades. Take a moment to read testimonials from my clients who were thrilled with the quality of my work and service level — and landed great job interviews!
I opened the doors to Best Resumes of New York in 1993. Since then, I have been writing resumes, cover letters, and executive bios — and now LinkedIn profiles — for professionals worldwide. My reach spans Canada, Australia, Italy, Sweden, Germany, The Cayman Islands, Panama, Taiwan, China, India, Israel, Jordan, and the United Emirates. Nationally, I service all of the U.S., both locally and out-of-state, including New York City (NYC), Brooklyn, The Bronx, Staten Island, Queens, New Jersey, Connecticut.
As you read this page and navigate my site, you will get a good sense for who I am and what I have to offer. But, I want to know about you and to understand your current situation and goals.
When we speak, I would like to know why you need a new resume. Are you frustrated with your current job? Have you been stagnant and want to explore your options? Has opportunity knocked? Are you looking to change fields? Did you recently relocate? Did your employer just downsize? What industries have worked in/are currently working in? Are you specialized? What qualifies you for your next move? What kind of work interests you? What defines your personal brand?
My Approach – In addition to creating a profile, selecting the right keywords, and, like a good journalist, creating a backstory to frame your experience, I want to know about your achievements. That is what we collaborate on: Your experience. Your backstory. Your achievements. I take care of the design, wording, and strategy. As any good team, we collaborate on the process from the get-go to the finish line!
Resume writing requires critical thinking and lots of creativity in terms of how the information should flow, what the messaging should be, and how the resume should be designed – from modest to modern (charts, colors, etc.). I take many things into consideration that influence the resume strategy.
I place an emphasis on achievements, core competencies, and the types of industries and business infrastructures headed — such as startup, early stage, and high-growth, as well as brick ‘n mortar, brick ‘n click or virtual/cloud only. I also focus on your brand. For example, are you a turnaround strategist? Maybe you are an industry trailblazer who has taken risks to drive the success of new business ventures. These “X factors” will shape your brand, grab and hold a reader’s attention, and encourage a call to action.
Corporate Contracts: Services bulk writing of resumes for corporate outplacement and RFPs under tight deadlines and developing a cohesive strategy working with HR managers. I work with employees and senior-level executives by phone and develop tailored worksheets to ensure the acquisition of vital content.
Personalized Service – This is my business and I care about my clients – many of whom are still my clients after two decades and gladly refer me. I take pride in my work and have the experience and skills needed to develop great career documents — and extensive client testimonials to back it up.
I take the time to understand your career needs and remain on hand as your career partner. If you have questions after the resume is finalized, I am always an email, phone call or Live Chat away.
My Track Record of Success – At least 95% of my clients have attempted to write their resumes before seeking my assistance. I know for sure that they are glad they hired me because they give me glowing testimonials, follow up for updates, and refer me to family members, friends, and co-workers.
