Beverly’s story

This professionally written resume was written to help Beverly land a new position as an Executive Director of a Non-profit. She had a broad geographic range and a broad range of non-profit targets throughout the Midwest.

We wrote this resume while she still was the Executive Director in August of 2009 and by December 2009, she had accepted a new position as Arts Festival Director several states away.

We also wrote her LinkedIn profile to give her the opportunity to network. Her resume showcased her dedication to event management and how many creative ways she had grown attendance and revitalized stagnant events. In her location at the time of her job search, she was very well-known but most of her targets were out-of-state.

For an individual who had landed a tough events management position shortly after college, her resume demonstrated that youth was not a problem that hampered her ability to successfully lead. Since that time, we have revised her resume after she returned to her home state and she successfully landed in new non-profit leadership roles that allowed her to incorporate her love of health and wellness.

To help you find your next Executive Director or management role in a non-profit, you may find it helpful to hire an expert in career marketing to write your resume. Intrigued? Select your resume package.

Client Testimonials

Administrative Assistant

Healthcare, Wisconsin

The pay they offered was on the high end of the range I wanted, and the only thing I had to negotiate was an extra week of vacation. Their benefits are beyond phenomenal--so finally our healthcare costs are going to go down hugely and yet it's the same insurance company we're on now with my husband that we like.

I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for redoing my resume and LI profile, and of course all the pep talks! You went above and beyond!!

Registered Nurse

“A year or so ago I was fired and came to you to do a resume for me, not only did you do an awesome resume but you gave me a glimmer of hope that all was not lost. It was so much more than just a resume to me. You have been an inspiration to me and I can never thank you enough!

Purchasing Manager

Manufacturing, Wisconsin

“Just wanted to let you know that I received a job. I accepted the position of Purchasing Manager. The cool thing is that God brought this job to me when I really did not think they would look at me because I did not have a four year degree. But, because I had the background, I sent in my resume and cover letter.

After 21 months of searching, God provided. I wanted to thank you for all your help, without your redesign of my resume, I do not believe I would have been looked at. God used you to minister to me. When you think about it, it is quite a ministry you have. Thank you so very much!!”
