Resumes That Brand You & Deliver Results

  • I have over 15 years of experience writing resumes, LinkedIn profiles and developing branding.
  • I work with executives, managers and individual contributors. Our work together is designed to help you get phone screens, interviews and job offers.
  • I collaborate 1:1 with you in person to brainstorm the resume content and achievements that hiring managers look for and that differentiates you from other candidates.
  • Your resume will talk directly to the requirements of HR, hiring managers and recruiters through strong branding, messaging and keywords optimized for a specific job description.
  • Having been a Manager, Director and VP within multiple industries, I have interviewed and hired many professionals at all levels. I know what other hiring managers look for in resumes and LinkedIn profiles. I work at a more strategic level beyond just the resume, helping you achieve your career and life goals.
  • My approach is personalized to your needs and desired career direction; which I can help you clarify through career coaching. I personally write the resumes and optimize them with keywords and search terms, enabling yours to survive ATS filtering systems and rise to the top for consideration.
  • Though I’m based in San Francisco, I work with clients around the U.S. and across the globe via Skype.

“I’ve started the (job) application process and I’ve received a lot of positive feedback about the work (Nick’s) done for me. During a recent interview, I was told that my resume stood out and looked very professional.” — Sarah R., San Francisco, via Yelp   

Interview Training That Gets You Job Offers

  • Walk into job interviews with confidence and the best answers to convince managers and HR to hire you.
  • Learn and leverage best practices in interviewing from an expert.
  • Develop strong answers to difficult questions and how to turn a negative in your career history, such as a layoff or employment gap, into a positive.
  • Discover techniques that allow you to turn the interview into a dialogue, where you can communicate why you are the best fit for the job. A dialogue will also enable you to gain more insight into the opportunity and the manager, the challenges of the job, and pros/cons to consider.
  • We will conduct a series of mock interviews, 1:1 live, using the job description and a list of the most difficult questions you expect to be asked. We work together to improve every answer you give, so that you will gain confidence.
  • Get feedback on image, eye contact, body language and articulation (such as use of ‘uhs’ and ‘ums’) and how to engage interviewers successfully in a competitive market.
  • Learn how to get the feedback you need from interviewers about your performance and to correct any misconceptions that might eliminate you. Also learn how to identify post-interview next steps for company.

“I was able to land a job offer with Nick’s guidance. I wouldn’t be able to do it without his help. I believe it was money well spent for the Interview Coaching…I would definitely recommend Nick to my family and friends.” — Jennifer L., Walnut Creek, CA., via Yelp

LinkedIn Profile Optimization to Get You More Interview Opportunities

  • LinkedIn management heard my KGO-810 radio program on jobs and invited me to their headquarters for 1:1 training. I learned directly from LinkedIn how to create a compelling profile based on what hiring managers, recruiters and HR want to see.
  • LinkedIn profiles, according to both The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, are the no. 1 method hiring managers use to find job candidates like you, and they’re the no. 1 method professionals use to market themselves.
  • I will optimize everything from your photograph, the content under your name, your summary, and career history to match what your targets are requiring. I work with you to ensure your LinkedIn profile will communicate you with authenticity.
  • I’ve written hundreds of LinkedIn profiles. My clients, including professionals, managers and executives, tell me they get the desired results and increased traffic to their page.

“Nick…is very experienced with LinkedIn and knows exactly what recruiters are looking for and what keywords to hit.” — Max B., Emeryville, Calif. (via Yelp)
