Feeling I needed experience in
interviewing and hiring personnel, I then spent the next three years
doing this for Dunhill Personnel Systems and Express Personnel. Then I
opened and managed my own personnel agency. During this time I
interviewed thousands of applicants and placed hundreds of people in
jobs with major Northwest employers. However, I missed working with
people and coaching them. So I changed careers and became a Career
Development Instructor with a leading business college.
In 1994 I finally finished my first book, Proven Resumes and Confidence
Builders. I then went to work as a Job Placement Specialist for the
University of Washington, Bothell. My presentations on resume writing
often resulted in comments like, "Gee, this is the best presentation
I've every seen!" Responses like this came from everyone. In less than
4 years my materials had been sold to over 60 colleges and more than 40
Employment Security and Worker Assistance programs. I gave
presentations for Boeing Re-Employment Centers, Employment Security
Offices, United Parcel Service - HR Department in Oregon, Northwest
Educational Conferences and The City of Seattle. Based on the success
ESD offices were experiencing as a result of my materials, I was
recommended by a Regional Administrator to the Governor's Board on
Employment Issues as a trainer for a state wide program.
Being hailed a Master Trainer by college instructors and career
development professionals, I soon became busy enough that I focused all
of my time giving presentations. Then in 1996 I began writing the
Career-Specific Booklets offered in this site. Having given hundreds of
resume writing seminars I learned first-hand what excited and motivated
job seekers as they watched my presentation. Armed with this
information I wrote Proven
Resumes: Strategies That Have Increased Salaries and Changed Lives! and
packed it to the brim with all the information I knew that job seekers
wanted the most and that I had seen land the most interviews and
highest salary offers! It received immediate acceptance and even more
success stories came rolling in from job seekers who have purchased it!
As you move through this site you'll find these testimonials.
All in all, I estimate that about a million people have been taught the
Proven Resumes System via this website and by the pool of instructors
and worker assistance programs who use my materials! Over the last ten
years, I also estimate that I've spent well over 12,000 hours working
directly with job seekers writing their resumes and hundreds of more
hours teaching resume and job search classes.
So that's my background. By integrating my love of marketing and
advertising and blending it with confidence building strategies the
Proven Resumes System really has taken on a life and success of it's
own. As you navigate through my site, I think you'll find that the
strategies presented here (and remember they're just little tidbits)
are far superior to other resume information you'll find.
I encourage you to buy my materials because they really do have a
strong history of success - which is documented by the testimonials from
job seekers, academic deans, directors of Workforce training and worker
assistance programs, college instructors and career counselors. All of
whom, have provided written signed testimonials... and to me these endorsements from
real job seekers and career professionals say much more than I can say
in pitching my materials to you!!
Good luck on your journey! And thanks for visiting!
