Resumes that get noticed.

Whether you’re a seasoned professional or seeking your first job, you’re returning to the workforce or making a career shift, you need a resume and a killer LinkedIn profile that gets you noticed.

HRMeg creates career marketing documents – resumes, cover letters, and LinkedIn profiles – that tell your story in a compelling, articulate manner, increasing your odds of getting interviews and landing your dream job.

Hi, I’m Meg!

You’ve probably heard it said that recruiters spend 7-10 seconds (at most) reviewing each resume they receive. When faced with a huge stack of applications for each job opening, that’s all they can devote. They scan each one to look for the basic requirements, and they’re also looking for reasons to further consider you, or to rule you out.

You know you have the skills, the experience, and the personality to land your dream job. Once you get the interview, you’re sure they’ll fall in love with you, and the rest will take care of itself. But you’ve been submitting resume after resume, and silence has been the only response. How can you be sure your resume will make them do a double-take, landing you on the “yes” pile?

I can help! I spend time getting to know you. I dig deep to understand your career goals, which enables me to articulate your unique offering to prospective employers in your chosen industry. In short, I can transform your resume so that it conveys your personal brand and career story with elegance and precision, enabling you to land those interviews.

Not only that, but a professionally-prepared resume boosts your confidence by showcasing your qualifications. It makes clear to prospective employers that you have the ability to make a positive impact on their business. And when you feel confident in your resume, you’re in prime position to land your dream job.

So, why work with me? As a 30+ year HR professional, I’ve guided countless hiring managers through the recruitment and selection process. I’ve screened the resumes; I’ve conducted the interviews; I’ve managed the job offer process. Simply put: I know what hiring managers want. When you work with me, this inside information will be at your disposal.

I’m a SHRM-certified Senior HR Professional (SHRM-SCP) and a proud member of the Society for Human Resource Management and the National Resume Writers’ Association. I’m also a Nationally Certified Online Profile Expert (NCOPE), with in-depth knowledge of how to write a LinkedIn profile that’s optimized for job searching and gets noticed.

Decoding your job offer letter

After receiving a verbal job offer, seek a written confirmation outlining the role, schedule, salary, and benefits. It should detail position, duties, pay rate, classification (exempt/nonexempt), additional compensation, benefits, company policies, and at-will employment terms. Check for contingencies like background checks. A response deadline will be indicated. Review and understand before committing.

The Case for Pay Transparency

The Case for Pay Transparency

I play poker semi-regularly with a group of women. We all buy in for $20 and play 5-card games. It’s not all that serious, but we do play by the rules. We like to say there aren’t many other ways you can have an evening of fun for a mere twenty bucks. Everyone antes, cards…

I have happy clients!

Here’s what some of them had to say about HRMeg:

I couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t getting responses to my job applications, so I hired Meg to review and revamp my resume. Meg solicited a lot of information at the outset, then distilled and focused my resume so that it was more descriptive and better targeted towards my job of choice. I am thrilled to have just accepted a new position, and thankful for Meg’s help in achieving that goal.

Meg asked insightful questions, provided valuable feedback, and gave me confidence that I was submitting a resume and cover letter that reflect my experience and enthusiasm for the position. I encourage anyone at any stage of their career and job search process to use Meg – she’s professional, efficient, up to date on all that goes into showcasing what makes you a good candidate for a position, and delightful to work with.

Meg overhauled my 23-year-old resume.  She articulated my professional summary in a way that really reflects my unique value proposition for my next employer.  The formatting was perfect and it was 100% error free.

Meg revised my entire resume and placed it into an eye-catching format, with a matching template for my cover letter. She also critiqued my LinkedIn profile and recommended some great updates. I’m ready to start sending out my new resume and feel confident doing so, thanks to Meg’s help.

At a friend’s recommendation, I contacted Meg to help me update my resume as I wasn’t getting much interest on LinkedIn and for the positions I applied for. She spent an amazing amount of time getting to know me, my work history, and the types of positions I was applying for. Meg produced a concise, well-written resume that conveys the depth and breadth of my experience and coached me on improving how I engage with LinkedIn content and other members.

Meg did a great job of breaking down my experience and reframing it for the marketplace I was seeking to enter professionally. She worked closely with me to identify the most relevant traits I possessed and successes I had achieved to create a great new resume. Highly recommend her services.

I think the main thing I would want people to know is that you’re so much more than a resume expert. For anyone concerned about the cost, they should consider it an investment in themselves and their future. For me, it was worth every penny and I would do it again in a heartbeat. 

My finished resume is an accurate presentation of my professional self. Equally important was the clarity you brought to my job search. I wasn’t just looking for a new gig, I was attempting to reboot my life, which is daunting at 45. Your compassion, combined with your HR experience, was invaluable.

For [college seniors] looking for internships or starting the search for a career, Meg needs to be your first contact. She has taught me how to market myself, and she’s such a wonderful person to be by your side during the process. I’m convinced that I wouldn’t be as successful and set up for my future without her.

My resume now reflects me, and my skills, in a creative, eye-catching way. I struggled for years trying to find the right wording and in a matter of a month or so you nailed it! I feel I’m now presented in a cohesive, positive way.

 A long-time employee in my company applied for our developing CEO program. I noticed Meg’s Twitter posts, got her contact information, and connected the employee with her. Meg transformed the employee’s resume to feature her extensive experience with our organization, highlighting her leadership achievements and abilities in a way that makes her a well-qualified candidate for our program.

After I experienced a layoff and decided on a career change I turned to Meg for help with my resume, interview tips, and just general knowledge of today’s job market. Her advice was spot on. I value her help and opinions! Can’t say thank you enough.

Instead of a laundry list of my previous jobs (One of Meg’s initial comments was that my resume looked like an itemized receipt), I now have an aesthetically pleasing document that concisely and accurately sums me up.  Meg has helped me brand myself.

Meg and I worked together in a collaborative way; I didn’t want to just hand something off with no input from my end. It took a few weeks. Once I received the final version of my resume, along with updated LinkedIn profile, I used it for my next application. I received a call back within 2 days and an offer within 2 weeks (which I accepted). Thank you, Meg!

Meg is very personable and is a great listener. She hears things you aren’t even aware you’re saying. I underestimated the questions she would need ask to be able to write my resume, but she did it unobtrusively and with a great deal of respect. Meg extracted skills and experiences from me that I’d long forgotten about. I was transitioning out of a position at the time and she couldn’t have been more supportive.

Meg was very easy to work with and did a great job of helping me transform a list of jobs and responsibilities into a clear story about who I am, what I do well, and what kinds of roles I’m looking for.
