My Story

After finishing undergrad in 2005, I worked for CareerBuilder (2005 to 2011) as a full-time employee in a few different roles. During the final 2+ years I served as Operations Manager for cbResume (now defunct), the company’s Resume Service. I led every aspect of day to day operations for the business. Quickly, I developed an interest in the Resume Writing niche and began learning as much as I could.

During this time, I was taking classes in Roosevelt University’s MBA program. Soon after graduation, I decided to quit my job and began working as a freelance Resume Writer on a full-time basis. I pursued and earned my Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) and Certified Professional Career Coach (CPCC) designations and steadily improved my craft over several years of freelance Resume Writing.

Concurrently, I launched JobStars.com in January 2013 to provide Resume Writing Services and Career Coaching for entry through executive level job seekers, and I’ve been steadily building the business since!

Doug’s Top 3 Tips for Job Seekers

  1. Diversify your job search. Quit relying on “apply and pray” so much.
