About Doug Levin

My experience in Resume Writing dates all the way back to 2009. For the backstory, please visit my Personal Website for a historical overview.

Leveraging my drive to pursue entrepreneurship and a deep knowledge in the Resume Writing niche, I launched JobStars officially in January 2013 to provide expert Resume Writing and Career Coaching for entry through executive-level job seekers.

With several years of freelance Resume Writing under my belt and training as a Certified Professional Resume Writer (PDF) and Certified Professional Career Coach (PDF), I put this knowledge into practice on a daily basis to help my valued clients achieve their job search goals.

I am continually striving to improve the experience for every valued JobStars client. This means investing in things like a dedicated client portal to facilitate client services, keeping up with industry trends, preparing countless articles for the Job Seekers Blog, and even offering a free Job Search Organizer tool!

I’ve managed to build a successful Career Services practice by providing high personal touch services at competitive rates. I am able to help lots of job seekers efficiently by using a proven process that keeps me well organized. Today, I am proud to call myself the founder, owner, and operator of JobStars. My daily commitment is to ensure the delivery of top notch Career Services for every valued JobStars client.

Currently working on Resume and Cover Letter for a VP-level Project Manager with extensive experience in the financial services industry. #ResumeWriting

Spoke with @JobStarsUSA client w 21 years outside the workforce. His top credentials are four years of professional experience (late '90's) and a Bachelor's degree. Big age discrimination and employment gap concerns! We talked about 'temp-to-hire' and why it may be a sweet spot.

Just wrapped up client intake call with a recent @UChicago Master of Science in Computer Science graduate, now ready to start applying for PhD programs. #resumewriting #resumeservices #academiccv

The @JobStarsUSA page on @yelpchicago dropped from 17 to 11 reviews in the last 30 days. I spoke with a representative at @yelp to understand why legit reviews from valued my clients were being flagged and removed so rapidly. No good answers. Makes me appreciate @ChicagoBBB more.
