HRMeg knows something about resumes.
Hi, I’m Meg! I’ve spent the last three decades working as an HR professional in the greater Washington, DC area. I’ve worked with companies of all sizes in a variety of sectors. I’ve been a solo practitioner, an HR Director, and a consultant for numerous smaller businesses.
I’ve worked with countless hiring managers to fill jobs at all levels of seniority and in many functional areas, from senior management to administrative support, executives to interns. My experience helped me develop a deep understanding of what hiring managers want. I can review a stack of resumes and recognize that special something in just a few of them. And, I know when a resume needs some help to effectively convey a candidate’s unique offering and demonstrate their potential to contribute to their employer’s mission.
In short: I know how to write a resume that gets noticed. Whether you’ve got decades of work experience or you’re just beginning your career, I can help by transforming your resume so that it tells your career story and ends up on the top of the “yes” pile, enabling you to achieve your career goals.
I’m a SHRM-certified Senior HR Professional and a member of the National Resume Writers’ Association.
