Executive Resume Writing that puts You and Your Value into your Resume and LinkedIn.

Knowing you need a resume is one thing - writing it is another

Most people's frustration comes from a combination of trying to translate an entire career into a document that someone will actually read, knowing what to say - but not how to say it, confusion as to the latest 'trends'  and/or having a branding piece that feels outdated. 

But that's not what holds back inspiring, accomplished leaders

After 20 years in leadership, coaching and development and over a decade as a Certified Professional Resume Writer and Career Coach, Lisa McDonald discovered their one common tripping point: And after 20 years in  leadership, coaching, and development including over a decade of career coaching, Lisa McDonald discovered  this commonality:

Aversion to bragging

Transformational professionals who love what they do are terrible at talking about themselves. This is why anything you write on your resume or LinkedIn that speaks to your value, no matter how true it is, makes you feel like you are bragging. 


Safety is using a job description as their bullet points, which only details the job responsibilities. Decision makers do not care about what you were hired to do, they want to know what you did.

Working with Career Polish makes the difference.

She  is also an expert storyteller who weaves your voice and value into your career tools seamlessly to pass through the three critical audiences:  ATS systems, screeners, and decision makers. You will only be working  one-on-one with Lisa, she does not subcontract any writing or coaching.
