Hello, I'm Gayle Howard.
As a professional resume writer embarking on my 29th year in the resume writing sector, I know one thing above all else. Trends come and go and goodness knows, I've seen them all!
Friends will tell you how resumes need to be one page; except they need plenty of detail too—and they need to show your 'personal brand'—but not too much 'fluff'.
Your neighbour is adamant charts and graphs are mandatory (he knows a guy who was a manager once). Graphic design is crucial another friend will say, and those infographic resumes—wow, they're amazing—oh but they don't score well in applicant tracking systems so graphics are in—but they're also out!
Some things never change: powerful writing, strong value propositions, contextual achievements, and of course, correct spelling and grammar.
And, that's what I teach in my training courses—how to write compelling resumes that elicit that must-have response from the reader without the self-congratulatory pats on the back, the purple prose, or a dizzying array of irrelevant graphics.
So whether you're a professional resume writer, who wants to lift his or her game, get acknowledged as an expert and get paid what you're worth; or whether you're a job seeker, with a weekend to spare, a Monday job application deadline, and the passionate desire to advance your career, I have designed my training for you to give you your best shot at living the dream.
