Read carefully:this is your resumé. Your full name must be in your settings. Tell us about yourself with thoughtful answers. Be descriptive, put your best foot forward. Proofread! What is the name of your business? Do not sign in via Facebook!!

Applying a holistic approach to personal branding, I help my clients identify and articulate their unique value with professional resumes, cover letters and LinkedIn profiles. To improve their job search results, I help them stand out from the competition with job search coaching and interview preparation. I founded The Resume Resource in 2009 after writing effective resumes and cover letters for more than 15 years on a volunteer basis. I enjoy helping people and wanted to provide a cost-effective alternative to the resume mills that mass-produce generic resumes that do not actually help jobseekers. I left the corporate world because I wanted to build a more balanced life that is meaningful and satisfying - and I now have it! I feel truly fortunate to be able to make a living doing what I love. I am passionate about helping my clients find a rewarding career, rather than just a job that pays the bills.

Tell us about your business and why you want to join. Do you have networking experience? Please describe. Do you plan to attend our events? Please understand that this is a friendly, in-person group and we have face-to-face meetings.

I have been networking quite a bit since May 2011 when I left the corporate world to run my resume writing business fulltime. I was pleasantly surprised by the dynamic of a women-only group and enjoy the friendly, supportive atmosphere.

What are you hoping to find in this group? What would you like to contribute? Why would we like to meet you? Please, no one-word answers. Note: submitting your profile does NOT RSVP you for anything. You must wait for approval before you can RSVP.

I am looking to make connections and learn from other small business owners, so that I can grow my business. I love to barter, so if anyone needs to establish their online presence, I would be glad to discuss trading an optimized LinkedIn profile for their services.

This is a very serious question! Do you have a favorite type of chocolate or dessert or food? It is OK if chocolate is your daily vitamin.

Chocolate mousse, macaroons and apple crisp, yum!

Important: Did you answer all questions? Proofread? Please submit a HEADSHOT photo of just your face- no cars,dogs or parties. Sorry- incomplete profiles are really time-consuming and will be rejected. As a volunteer organizer, time is limited.
