When you engage me to write your resume, you will benefit from my hard-won expertise in the domestic and international recruiting world where I led search assignments for major Fortune 500 companies on two continents, including Shell, Chevron, Encana Corporation, Teck, Fluor, IBM, Motorola, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, British Red Cross, and many more.

I acquired insight into how they recruit and what they look for in an applicant. I know what you’re doing wrong with your resume. I have reviewed over 40,000 resumes and interviewed over 6,000 people over the course of my career.

Leverage my hard-won, real-world business experience developed in the recruitment consulting and executive recruiting trenches to give you the edge you deserve with your resume writing project.

Work Directly With Me

I will never outsource your resume project.  When you engage me, we work together from start-to-finish and I will personally write your executive resume and cover letter.  Unlike many ‘big box’ resume firms who use the owner as nothing more than a figurehead to attract business, I do not outsource the work to junior staff or low-wage overseas workers.

Client Testimonial

Ken produced an extremely high quality product in my executive resume. He was able to bring together essential components of my professional experience and highlight them in a manner that opened the door for a targeted application.

His knowledge and experience helped brand my professionalism and expertise exactly as required; my new executive resume afforded me the opportunity to compete for one the highest positions within my field and community.

His interview coaching then ensured that I was able to maximize this opportunity through creating a dialogue within the interview and with the hiring committee to showcase all the added value my skills, experience, and passion brought to the position I was seeking with this premier organization.

I strongly recommend Ken and his services for those wishing to create lasting employment success and advancement opportunities.

Client Testimonial

Ken did an outstanding job with providing me an up to date resume and cover letter in less than a week.

I have been at the same company for 10 years, but have had so many different roles and positions, it was hard to articulate my key skills in a three page resume. From our interview session, Ken was able to capture my key competencies and skills, and focus on what will attract me to employers.

A small investment to secure a great career. Highly recommend!
