Steph Cartwright, CPRW // Executive Resume Services

You’re in the right place if…

  • Your 4+ page, dense resume makes it difficult to hone in on your unique value,

  • You’re lost when it comes to translating your diverse experience into a focused resume,

  • Your decades of experience draw more attention to your age than your qualifications, or

  • You fear you haven’t achieved financial results that a Board of Directors wants to see.

Frequently Asked Questions

I've never needed a resume until now. What if I'm starting from scratch?

Many executive job seekers advance through multiple promotions or recruitment. If you haven't needed a resume until now and don't know where to begin, no worries! I'll have you complete an Employment History Outline immediately after the Introduce Yourself form to get us started.

What's the process look like?

All new clients start with an Are We A Good Fit & Introduce Yourself form with a resume upload option on my website. The Introduce Yourself form will also give me a better idea of where you are at in your career and job search.

I'll likely need more information from you before I can get started which will be collected with a Work History Examples Worksheet and a 30-minute Onboarding Call. Once I have all the information I need and payment collected, I'll get started on your first draft.

Do you make any guarantees?

I do not guarantee interviews, job offers, or any career outcomes. There are simply too many factors involved in the job search. Results will vary based on:

  • How active you are in the job search process
  • Whether or not you're applying for positions you are qualified for, and
  • If you use the resume, LinkedIn profile, cover letter, etc. as advised

I do, however, guarantee 100% satisfaction through unlimited revisions. If you neglect to requesting revisions or stop communicating with me about your resume project, I’ll send your final documents and consider the project finished.

If you return weeks or months later wanting revisions that alter the focus of the resume, this is considered a New Job Target Revision ($399 for Executive Resumes).

What if I just need a few things added or updated?

I don't offer quick edits or updates because your resume likely needs more work than you think.

If you're researching and comparing resume services, then you already know your resume isn't working. A quick change to a paragraph or two or adding your most recent position/certification won't make a difference.

If your resume isn't working, it's either because:

  • You're applying for jobs online with a resume that isn't ATS-compatible
  • You're applying for every job online with the same resume
  • Your resume has no focus which tells employers that you don't know what you want or what you offer, or
  • Your resume draws more attention to your age and away from your qualifications

I ask the right questions to really get to know you, establish your personal brand to make it visible in every aspect of your job search, and write targeted resumes presenting you as the best fit for the job you want.

Can I see some examples of resumes you've worked on?

Yes, but please keep in mind that these samples are best for previewing my resume design style only. A job-winning resume's content will be 100% unique to that job seeker's background, skills, and job target.

The resumes I design have clean, flat designs with minimal to no graphics. I take into consideration what is appropriate for the client's industry, the client's career level, and the client's personal branding preferences.

Looking for something more bold? A custom Graphic Resume can be designed for you and delivered with your final documents for a $99 upgrade fee.

Applicant Tracking software can't read graphic resumes, so creating a content-focused resume should be the top priority when you're applying to jobs online. Graphic resumes can, however, boost the impression you leave on recruiters and HR professionals when:

  • You are in a creative field such as Graphic Design or Digital Marketing.
  • You will be attending job fairs and applying to jobs in-person.
  • You are relying on your professional network to refer you to the “great fit” position.
  • You are looking for a way to stand out at a job interview.
