Your resume establishes your brand quickly with prospective employers and recruiters. It must be skim-able but also have the details to show your accomplishments and expertise. Your resume should be designed to get you the next job that you want and not just just reflect where you have been.
Can your resume get out of the black hole and past the more than 200 Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) used by most companies to automate the resume review process?
Do you need a little more 'oomph' in your resume? Or maybe you feel like a fresh set of eyes (not your spouse or neighbor) could help improve this critical document?

I have known Tricia for 16 years. She has been a lifesaver in my professional development over the years. I can't say enough about her ethics, honesty, and expertise. She is my go-to person for career coaching and development.
Tricia invested time to get to know what’s unique about my background, learning what I love to do versus what I can do. She opened up her network to me and made valuable introductions while helping me hone my value proposition based on her experience working with CEOs and leaders impacted by Marketing’s efficacy. Through her coaching, she called out my capacity for leadership and built my confidence. She’s a valued thought partner to me and to all her colleagues and clients. She’s also just plain fun to be around – a meeting I’m always happy to see on my calendar. I recommend her as a thought partner to anyone seeking professional development in the Triangle."
Tricia's approach combines her savvy as a former marketing and sales executive and her passion and deep expertise as an executive recruiter and coach. Her knowledge, expertise, and honesty has been a source of encouragement and guidance throughout my career.
Tricia has helped me and countless others by sharing her professional network and industry knowledge. She took the time to get to know me. I was more than just a candidate and I am pleased to say we have become good friends. Tricia is special and a true Change Agent.
Tricia and I collaborate frequently in our board roles at the Triangle American Marketing Association. She is a trusted resource and an amazing connector of people. She has a unique talent and has counseled hundreds of job seekers over the years. She just keeps on giving back to the community and is highly respected by her peers and her clients.
Tricia helped me transform my resume resulting in a positive career transition that was perfect for my work life balance goals. Her coaching was spot on and she helped me discover my strengths. I recommend her for anyone considering new career opportunities or challenges.
Tricia is not your 'typical' recruiter. Having worked with her on sponsorships at the AMA Triangle and as colleagues in the Triangle technology industry, I have found Tricia to be the 'real deal' when it comes to industry knowledge and developing meaningful connections within her network.
