I’m a triple-certified resume writer and certified job search strategist. My desire to help clients progress from where they are to where they want to be in their careers drives everything I do. As has often been said, “life is too short” to spend it doing something you’re not happy about or missing out on good career opportunities because you’re not prepared to take advantage of them. I want to have a part in making good things happen for my clients.
For example, here’s what just one of my clients had to say about our work together:
“Georgia is in a class of her own when it comes to resume writing. I was so impressed with her recommended changes that I hired her to revise my entire resume, update my LinkedIn profile and draft a cover letter. To say that I could not be happier with the results would be an understatement….Georgia has a passion for delivering the best product that she can.”

MY CORE VALUES:
As a careers industry professional with a commitment to maintaining a high level of excellence, I hold several certifications, including Master Resume Writer, Academy Certified Resume Writer, Certified Professional Resume Writer, and Certified Job Search Strategist.
My written work has appeared in 12 books, including Executive’s Pocket Guide to ROI Resumes and Job Search. I’ve also authored numerous articles for print and online publications, including the blog and member newsletter published by BlueSteps (Association of Executive Search Consultants).
During the Great Recession, I was interviewed by reporters from two San Francisco TV stations, CBS (Channel 5) and ABC (Channel 7), regarding resumes and the tight job market.
As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, part of who I am “on the job” is the person I am outside of work. The care I put into my professional work is on a par with my commitment to giving my best in other areas of my life.
Also, just as I encourage my clients to allow themselves a break now and then, even when they’re in the midst of an intense job search, I also try to take one myself occasionally. For the past several years, I have shared a home with one or two active little dogs (on December 12, 2016, we had to say goodbye to the younger one, a male; we still have the 12-year-old female). That reminds me to take a break when I’m engrossed in client projects—dogs don’t let you forget!
