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:
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.
Lisa is triple certified as a Professional Resume Writer, Career Coach, and Social Media Brand Analyst. She specializes in helping her clients replace bragging aversion with confident communication in an easy and comfortable manner.
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.
Beyond an exceptional resume, you learn the tips, tools and techniques to tailor your resume to any opportunity including keywords and phrases analysis, scoring your resume, and integration.
Today a one-size fits all resume does not work. It is necessary to tailor your resume to each position. As a Coach, this is where Lisa distinguishes herself and the process. Lisa will customize the final resume and create a cover letter for a position of your choice - then - during the resume relevance strategy session, she will guide you through the tools and methods that will prepare you to confidently tailor your resume for future opportunities.
