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.

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.

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 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 a executive resume writer.

To create a good resume and LinkedIn profile, it’s crucial to have good content. Hiring managers want to read about your accomplishments. You have done many things over your career. But is your resume just a dry list of facts? I will work with you to find out all the ways we can make you stand out.
