About Resumes by Rosa - Elite Master Resume Writer Credentialed

"Welcome to my online CV. As an experienced, creative, and professional resume writer, I am fortunate and excited about empowering careerist with compelling resumes, cover letters, and bios that capture the toughest job interviews. And, perhaps the most valuable part of my job is that each polished marketing document infuses my clients with pride and validates their career life from a favorable and fresh perspective they had not self-examined prior." What is special about resumes by Rosa? I truly consider myself a resume branding specialist because what I do best is find that special you within the content of your old resume, your interview comments, and by probing you for additional information. I then gather all that rich data that describes that special YOU and create a sincere –but dynamic vision of what your personal brand is and how that will produce measurable results for your clients and or employers! I convey your brand via the rich, sometimes colorful, and fresh resume design -- resumes are distinctively modern and succinct. Moreover, the content of each resume is coherent, powerful, and strategically written; unique qualifications are prioritized and targeted to employers’ needs with a focus on substantiated value."

Selective Success Stories:

Ashlee McConner, who was a recent graduate, captured an interview in one of the most competitive entertainment companies in America (Universal Music Distribution). Leveraging a resume that immediately ignited interest, seemingly defined her academic qualifications, and outdistanced other students by promoting her unique value and early-borned passion-- she was the only one to earn a much-sought-after internship!

Early A. Gardner went back to care for the sick as a RN after more than ten years out of the nursing field. She was nervous and doubtful about being able to lure quality job interviews. However, after we crafted a resume that focused on her hands-on experience, guided attention to her exceptional work performance, and shed light on her practices to keep abreast of the latest in healthcare, she re-entered the workforce at more than 65K per year!

John Werternback, an executive manager in the competitive area of NYC, netted a top-level management position at the famous “Top of the Rock” after months of dead-end job searching. His resume was engineered to highlight action-provoking career achievements; the resume was designed to imprint a memorable image in under 30 seconds, and value-laden $$$ was implemented throughout the resume to prove his talent in generating millions in a challenging market.
