Welcome professionals in transition, career changers, entrepreneurs ready to transition back to the corporate world, new graduates beginning your new career adventure, to award-winning Resumes Etc. We offer personalized over-the-phone, by email, and/or in person consultations, quick turnarounds, and 20+ years of experience writing resumes for all people at all levels of all industries – even you!
The key is simply to make a powerful first impression.
Resumes often get only a five second or less glance from a hiring manager before the manager decides whether to look further into your credentials.
Your resume should easily pass through three potential ‘gatekeepers':
The company’s computer keyword scanner
A human resume ‘screener’ – someone who has been charged with matching up job posting s with resumes that have been received to see if they’re in alignment with the posting’s requirements
And finally, the employer/hiring manager.
If your resume doesn’t pass through each of those ‘doors’, chances are it’s ending up in the ‘No’ pile.
We create resumes that easily get through the three ‘gatekeepers’.

I routinely get calls and emails from people saying, “The resume you made for me got me the job!” which is exactly what a resume should do.
Here are some unsolicited nice notes happy clients have emailed to me:
I just wanted to follow up with you. I had a GREAT INTERVIEW yesterday and wanted to THANK YOU! The HR Manager commented on my resume and said that the third page was indeed a bonus to round out my experience. Your comments through the whole process has really got me charged in a very focused direction. I interviewed with 4 different people in the organization, all executive level, including the CEO. The CEO told me that he wants to bring me on board and I am waiting to see what the offer, etc is. Terrie, I could not have done this without your expertise! I will let you know the outcome. — Marilyn H., Home Shopping Network Executive
This is probably going to read/sound weird, but OMG!!! You did a fantastic job. Choice of wording and organization is spectacular! I am speechless and very impressed and can’t thank you enough. — Ann J., Hotel Executive, Virginia Beach, VA
I have passed on the resume to a friend who is a former sales rep and am waiting for her feedback as to any other changes she feels are necessary. As far as I am concerned it looks rather impressive. I would call me for an interview after reading it. If there are any other changes I need I will let you know. My brag book is all gathered and arranged. Tomorrow I go to have it copied and put together in the leather binder you suggested. I found even more stuff to add — glad I am a pack rat! – James G., Pharmaceutical Sales Rep
Thanks for your help. You are doing a great job. When I get my ‘dream job’ and it goes public I am changing careers I will be sure to pass along your info to others who want to make the leap. — Holly P., Retail Manager / Pharmaceutical Sales Rep, Seattle, WA
I looked over the revised resume and I must say ‘You done good!’ Overall I am quite pleased at how it looks and sounds—at how it turned out—we have a winner! Thank you very much for all of your time and your considerable talent. You really pumped life into a lifeless resume! — Matt J., IT Manager, Detroit, MI
Thanks again for your help in re-writing my resume. In searching for jobs over the past couple of months, I’m positive that’s what got me the interviews. And today I can tell you I have a job offer. — Jeff B., Marketing Manager, Los Angeles, CA
