Hiring an Executive Resume Writer: Catalyst Resumes LLC

If you want to work with a professional executive resume writer to get a great resume and LinkedIn profile, you’ve come to the right place.

Most importantly, when you hire Catalyst Resumes, you’ll work directly with me, Phil Hurd.

Phil has a thorough process for uncovering what makes you unique as a candidate, highlighting the achievements that showcase that, and weaving it into a compelling narrative.  After working with him I not only had an effective resume that landed meaningful interviews, but a better sense of how I stood out in the talent market.

J.M., Regional Sales Director, software company

Firstly, I’m one of fewer than 100 people worldwide who hold the Nationally Certified Resume Writer (NCRW) certification from the National Résumé Writers’ Association. You should strongly consider hiring an NCRW, because this means your resume writing professional meets a high standard of professionalism and ethics. He/she demonstrates strong competence in modern resume strategies, design, writing for impact, style, compatibility with applicant-tracking systems, and—last but not least—grammar and English. It also means they’ve had their work critiqued and graded by a jury of senior resume writers, and they must pass this with an above-average rating. Additionally in 2021, I won the NRWA’s ROAR award for best resume in the Executive category.

Second, I’m one of the few NCRWs who’s also been a successful executive recruiter for more than 30 years. I know what hiring managers want to see in your resume.

And third, when you hire me to write your personal branding documents, you get me! I’m doing all the writing. While I do work with a professional proofreader and editor, I do all the interviewing and interfacing with you, and I write all the project content myself. Unlike many resume-writing services, I don’t front-end the project and then hand it off to a subcontractor to do the actual writing. You get direct access to my expertise as an executive resume writer.

Phil’s work stands in a class of its own. He is able to transform a jumbled mass of ideas into a world-class resume, highlighting the unique characteristics of the client. Phil’s work has been invaluable to my professional growth and to my being offered—and accepting—an exciting new job with a top tech company.

V.P., Technical Program Manager
