May I help you land your dream job?

You may be halfway across the country or the world. When you work with me, we share coffee, laughs, and concerns. This turns the scary job search into creative, consultative resume writing, and learning sessions.

I hold multiple certifications, the most recent is the Certified Graphic Resume Architect. This credential was designed by Career Directors International specifically for professional resume writers who love giving executives and leaders the invaluable edge of dynamic, visual resumes to stand out from the competition. I value my involvement in the career industry and the continued availability of resources to grow.

Though I write resumes, when you choose to work with me, it is much more than that. I'd love to tell you more.

Susan Barker - Design Resumes TestimonialJulie is one of the best in the resume and coaching business that I have ever met and I recommend her to my business colleagues on a consistent basis without hesitation. She has a unique approach and doesn’t simply provide an exercise where she has you complete some type of form.

Julie gets to know her clients and, in a collaborative fashion, she creates your story while helping you to understand your strengths. For Career Marketing, there are none better than Julie!

Dave FrigenA very successful friend recommended Design Resumes, it was great advice. Working with Julie has produced three positive career advancements.
Not only does Julie design killer resumes, she coaches on what to anticipate during interviews. In my experience, the Design Resumes process produced consistent results with way more in first paychecks than invested.  
Beyond the money and success, the best thing that ever happened is loving what I do. Design Resumes comes highly recommended for a reason!
