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.
