  • Innovative Resume and Cover Letter Writer for Today's Job Market

    Many people now hire resume writers, so even a professionally written resume often looks average. I'm uniquely qualified to make your resume stand out in today's market: 1. I have worked on resumes in many disciplines and helped people from C-level executives to new graduates. As a seasoned resume writer and member of the National Resume Writers’ Association, I'm an expert in this field’s current practices. 2. I have also been a recruiter, so I know how hiring managers select a resume from hundreds of others, and I understand the full hiring process. 3. I’m up to date with applicant-tracking software (ATS) systems. More than 70% of the resumes sent for a typical opening won’t be seen by human eyes because ATS systems first screen them. They require effective use of keywords and certain types of formatting. There are more than 140 ATS systems and they change quickly. 4. I have been a voracious reader for 30 years (with an 8,000-volume home library). Reading intensively on a daily basis has made me a more astute critic than writers who read less are--I can notice more of a resume's shortcomings. I can also see more nuances in a resume's language and understand how they will affect the hiring manager's impressions. 5. I’m an unusually versatile and creative writer. I have written resumes, web pages, a book about creativity (it will be published in January), and articles about art, travel, world cultures, creativity, business, and religious studies. I’ve traveled extensively in 34 countries. Extra creativity and the ability to look at people and their resumes in novel ways, with a larger range of ideas, make a big difference now that resume writing has become more competitive. I will be able to see all of your strengths in more ways than other resume writers will, and my versatility as a writer will allow me to give them more impact. I'll be happy to give your resume a free critique and tell you what I can do to improve it. This is the best way to test a resume writer because it allows you to see his ability to evaluate a resume and think of ways to distinguish you. It also enables you to see his knowledge of the job market, which has recently undergone several profound changes--many resume writing techniques that worked in the past often fail now. I have also learned how to craft resumes in ways that can influence the interview in your favor, and I can provide interview coaching. I also write cover letters, LinkedIn profiles, webpages, personal bios, and articles. TESTIMONIALS I'm new to oDesk, but I've had many happy clients in the past: 1. “I heard more innovative ideas from Brian about how to craft an effective resume than I have from anyone else. He understands how the rules for finding a job in this market have changed more than anyone else that I have worked with. I would emphatically recommend him to any professional who is looking for a job.” Dan M. 2. “I got much more intelligent advice from Brian about my resume than I did from anybody else. I got a job within one month of his consultation, and his work had a lot to do with it.” Prasad S. 3. “I had been working on my resume for two years and after numerous revisions and feedback from people, I had a resume that I thought was as good as I could get, but that was still not working for me in this market. I am impressed and relieved that in working with you, it took less than one hour to significantly improve my resume in ways I never imagined possible.” Anna S. 4. “I previously worked with two consultants about resumes, and Brian was more helpful than both put together. He sat down with me, analyzed my experience, and discovered several ways in which I stand out from my competition that I wasn’t aware of. As a recruiter, he has worked with many hiring managers, and he knows what they are looking for in candidates, and on their resumes. I would recommend him to anybody who wants to greatly increase his or her chances of getting interviews and jobs” Leonard S. 5. “Brian offered some ideas that added interest and clarity to my resume. With Brian’s help, my revised resume helped me stand out among the competition to get me my current job.” Brad B. 6. “ATC’s Brian Holihan really knows what he’s doing. He gave me lots of insights into the job market in Silicon Valley that I haven’t heard before. He also teaches some great interviewing techniques I haven’t heard anywhere else.” Harlo L. As a resume writer and an explorer of world cultures, I focus on discovering the richness in people, and I've found that each person is unique and infinitely deep. I love to find more wonders in people and societies and write about them. I look forward to giving you a great new resume and many ideas about taking the next step in your career.  less

    Blythe Chambers, I/O Psychologist, marketer, commercial real estate and tax sale professional, business writer, as well as author of the upcoming "Gig Bag Guide: Copyright Law", has a single purpose in her consulting practice: to get behind your business to make you more successful. I am a trained masters-level industrial/organizational psychologist with over 10 years of real-world experience outside of the classroom applying tried and true principles of psychology, business, and creative design and intuition in the fields of sales, human resource consulting, management, real estate acquisitions and asset management, marketing, and advertising. I'm a driven, creative perfectionist in all I do. I work best with professionals who clearly know what they want and who are also open to suggestions based upon my expertise, who already understand that true business success takes planning and does not happen overnight and neither do projects, and who trust in my experience, vision, creativity, and skill set to make it a reality. A full menu of services in detail will be available as a PDF in my portfolio shortly. While I have a broad portfolio of experience, the four key service areas I provide business expertise in are: 1. ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT & BEHAVIOR CONSULTING - including, but not limited to, organizational assessment, marketing and business plans, custom salary surveys, training, employee motivation, compensation, professional presentation planning and creation, administrative management, business writing, etc. 2. REAL ESTATE - including, but not limited to, real estate writing, commercial due diligence and assistance, tax sale research and advising (tax deeds and tax liens), legal (contracts, leasing), management, marketing, listing presentation creation, due diligence for acquisition, representation at auction, etc. 3. WRITING FOR PROFESSIONAL PUBLICATIONS - including, but not limited to, article writing, biography writing, professional interviewing for publication, contract drafting, research, document review and editing. 4. DESIGN, MARKETING, and MEDIA - including, but not limited to, graphic design for newsletters, posters, CD and DVD covers and inserts, brochures, and books; interior design and model home staging; etc. How may I help you?  less

    My unique approach to financial management is designed to reveal both insights and opportunities. Building upon a background of National Account Management, Commercial Banking, Brokerage Services, and Senior-Level Financial Consulting, I draw upon a wealth of practical, first-hand experience to benefit clients in the ways that matter most: A broad-based understanding of business finance that achieves defined, sustainable goals. A common theme linking disparate industries at different stages of development and maturity comes courtesy of an understanding of the flow of every dollar, from sales to expense to operating income. Examined through a lens that is customized for every client and each business, and reflects their unique challenges and competitive advantages. The result is what I call Functional Financial Management. It’s not merely the numbers, but the story inside the numbers. Customized, relevant, and with a practical utility that can be nothing short of game-changing. These are also the hallmarks of financial management guidance provided through Business Expedition Partners, the financial consulting firm I founded to offer clients around the world specialized financial consulting. From start-ups to mature companies, it is an honest, hard-working, unrelenting attention to detail that delivers results exceeding expectations. Top 5% Odesk Contractor!  less

    Every business has a meaningful story to be told. Finding meaning and expressing it is what I do. I am a meaningmonger or rather I am the meaningmonger. I am the only one in the world. Why? I coined that term, meaningmonger. Remember you first heard it here. Enough about what I do. Here's what I am not and what I don't do. 1. I am not the world's best copywriter. I try very hard to be. As the bard said, "Only a fool thinks he is the best, the wise man knows himself to be a fool." 2. I don't watch TV. I read (I didn't mean to sound like a snob but that's the truth), I think (and stare into space at the same time) and I get out a lot, watch people, eavesdrop on other people's conversations (I hear that's where comedians get their material. If it's good for funny people, I think it's good for me). 3. I don't waffle (sometimes also known as SEO), or write empty, meaningless stuff. Most people (not machines and engines) enjoy reading what I write. If you didn't so far, don't read any further. 4. I don't use spellcheck. I don't just use words. I use them meaningfully. More than a mere writer or wordsmith, I prefer to think of myself as dispensing meaning. Meaning is important. Words are not. (If you agree, read on.) ‘Are these fortune cookies?’ asked Jill. ‘Yes,’ said the waiter ‘with compliments from the chef.’ Jill broke open her cookie and frowned at the strip of paper inside. ‘What does it say?’ asked Jack. ‘It sounds cryptic and rude,’ said Jill. Jack took the strip of paper from her and read, ‘Be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless.’ ‘If I eat lunch like this every day, I will be formless and shapeless,’ said Jill. ‘It’s Bruce Lee,’ said Mark. They both looked at him with incomprehension. ‘It’s what Bruce Lee said,’ explained Mark. ‘Meaning if you flow like water, you will never get stale.’ ‘And I thought they were calling me empty-minded and shapeless,’ said Jill with obvious relief. ‘If you do this and that, what you will get is diddlysquat,’ read out Jack from his fortune cookie. ‘What does that mean?’ said Jill. ‘It means that whoever is writing these fortune cookies needs to be more tactful,’ said Jack throwing down the strip of paper. ‘They are not going to get repeat customers saying stuff like this.’ ‘There’s a message for you, Jack,’ said Mark. Jill looked at him askance. ‘Look at Jack,’ said Mark. Jack’s phone was wedged between his left ear and shoulder while typing on his Blackberry. Jill shrugged, ‘What?’ ‘He is multitasking,’ said Mark. ‘So?’ said Jill. ‘If you do two things at the same time, you can do neither of them well and hence you get zero results, ergo diddlysquat,’ said Mark. ‘I have to go,’ said Jack getting up. ‘Me too,’ said Jill. ‘See you later, Mark.’ ‘Don’t you want to know what my fortune cookie says?’ called out Mark as they left the restaurant. (If you want to know more about me, read on. If you only want to know what was in Mark's fortune cookie, scroll down to the footnote at the end.) Messages are nothing without meaning. Do you think that Jack or Jill will lunch again at the Chinese restaurant? It's unlikely unless Mark insisted on taking them there. It would be great to have more friends like Mark. It would make our jobs much easier. Unfortunately, the Jacks and Jills of this world outnumber the Marks. Fortunately, some of us know this and ensure words are used not just to fill up space or fortune cookies but to mean something. I've been using words and infusing messages with meaning for over 17 years. As a full-time freelance copywriter on oDesk since August 2012, I've written content for blogs, websites, copy for sales letters and response-driven direct mail content. I've also ghostwritten books in the fiction and self-help categories that have been successfully published and sold on Amazon.com. I focus on enabling advertisers, brands, marketers as well as individuals and entrepreneurs find a singularly unique and engaging voice to express their message in a memorable manner. I've been writing effective, persuasive advertising copy and marketing communications content since 1993. Before freelancing, I worked as a copywriter with international companies such as Qatar Airways, artobrand.com, gpradvertising.com, Kamerad-News and MAA-Bozell. So, when you hire me, you are not only getting an experienced copywriter who delivers quality but also content that is meaningful and makes relevant sense to the reader. 'Keep Smiling and everyone will wonder what you are up to.' That's what Mark's fortune cookie said.  less
