Global Marketing Director

Fortune 500 Company, Pennsylvania

“Hey Julie, Just a short note to say thanks for your help with my resume. It was a great help for me in landing a couple of opportunities that led to offers.”

Senior Vice President

Banking, Maryland

“It has been a whirlwind since you completed my resume, a lot of changes to the organization in light of the merger, a busy market, and as well a lot of folks making decisions to leave versus stay.

For me, an offer was made that I will be accepting. I can tell you my resume has been met with rave reviews so I trust you implicitly, have recommended you, and will be a customer for life as I may need to re-engage you.”

Office Manager

New York, NY

I wanted to find someone who will work with me live, so I can explain all my responsibilities and accomplishments to a literate professional, who will then be able to put it into right words and create a “WOW” resume for me.

Next day I woke up and for some reason my gut told me to work with Julie, so I called her, and boy was my gut right. I am so happy with my new resume and cover letter, I have a second breath for job search. We worked live on Skype all the time, I could see exactly what she was doing, and I couldn’t ask for a more personalized experience for my money.

Executive Vice President, Marketing

Boston, MA

I wanted to reach out and let you know I landed my next exciting opportunity! On March 28, I'll be joining ABC Company as their EVP Marketing. The fit couldn't feel more perfect! I'm so excited and can hardly wait to get started. Thanks so much for everything you've done to help make me look good! :) It worked. (again!)

"My first walk-in transportation company (ABC Freight) and my first job opportunity! I can't thank you enough!"
His goal - the transportation industry. He was ready to leave a successful career selling Manhattan real estate to follow his passion!

Instructional Designer

University, Wisconsin

“I highly recommend Julie as a professional career management consultant. Her ability to assess her clients needs and desires, and then creatively collaborate with them to create an overall digital profile that truly represents “who they are” is amazing.

It was time to give my professional profile some pizzaz, and create a professional online presence, and the first person that I thought of was Julie. After working with Julie as a professional, I can say that the service Julie provides is nothing short of the way to (as her web site states) “find your perfect career marketing strategy”. Give her personal face-to-face strategy a try!”

A quick and easy tip when your resume file gets too big

A quick and easy tip when your resume file gets too big

A quick and easy tip when your resume file gets too bigWhen I start with a new resume client, I use a new document and write from scratch. I know some professional resume writers will use the old document but then I find that I am stuck with hidden formatting code and strategies that get in the way of my design and can even have a more undesirable effect of creating bloat in the document and enlarging the document file size.

However, when I am doing an update for one of my own clients, I don’t always follow this process. If I just insert new positions, education, and new resume strategies, I can save time by using my own old file. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always create the same file size as if I had started with a new blank document. It can create the same file bloat as using someone else’s old file and make it difficult for clients to upload on job applications or Applicant Tracking Systems.

For job seekers who don’t live on computers, this problem can cause panic!

How to get your resume back to the right size to upload

I have learned that there is an easy fix to get the file size back to normal.

  1. In the old document, select all (Control A)
  2. Copy all (Control C)
  3. Open a new document.
  4. Paste all (Control V)

When you check the file size, you will find that the file that could have previously morphed to 2,000+K is now a manageable 40K and will upload just fine again.
