Question :

Read what others are saying about Tim:

I was just getting back into the job market after many years of raising children. I had written my resume and began sending it out, however I wasn't getting a great response from employers. Then I decide to contact Tim.

Tim told me the content was good and I had many significant accomplishments but we needed to update the format. This is when I found Tim to be an amazing help. Through our discussions he made me realize I had accomplished so much more than I had highlighted in my resume.

Not only did my resume improve but so did my self confidence. Tim truly understands what employers are looking for and can help you create a resume that will catch their attention.

The true test came when I started receiving more responses from employers. Then shortly after that I got a job. I would highly recommend Tim!

I have been a legal professional with over twenty years experience. I, along with 32,000 of my co-workers found myself out of work in early 2009. Once the shock wore off, I needed to refocus, regroup and most importantly move forward with finding a new position. That is where Tim came in.

Tim spent a lot of time (and I mean god bless him, a LOT of time) reviewing my resume, and most importantly speaking with me to get a better understanding of my experience, my career strengths and my goals for the short and long term. Anyone can write words on a resume but Tim was able to take the words and our discussions and literally transformed my resume into a working piece of excellence.

I appreciated his blunt questions and I also thanked him for asking me questions that caused me to think about what I have done and where I want to go. These discussions forced me to spend some time thinking about my career and how to become a better professional in my line of work and helped me to prepare and interview well.

I will recommend Tim to anyone who asks. Why? Because he is the consummate professional. My resume is the first introduction to who I am every time I submit it; and just like when you put your best foot forward in an interview, my resume represents who I am professionally. Tim has made sure that my resume is a reflection of my experience and growth potential.

I am employed now and absolutely due to the help that Tim provided me. In addition to my resume, his positive coaching style and allowing me to put some thought into my next move was a huge bonus in the overall job search.

After I graduated college I contacted Tim to help me with my resume. Not only did he help me with my resume, but he gave me so much advice about the job hunt and how to make yourself stand out that within two months I had landed a very nice job and have now been there for about two years!

Tim's advice and guidance not only helped me land a job but has also helped me succeed at this company.

He was honest and very blunt when giving advice which made working with him very beneficial and efficient. I loved working with Tim and now the advice he gave me I will be able to use throughout my career!

Tim is a tornado, a force of nature . . .in the best way.

After I met Tim, and he heard the sad tale of my job search gone "bad," (way stale,) Tim requesting my resume and I thought, "Sure, whatever". . . I sent it.

I had already been through the "out-placement Therapy, with Resume Makeover" offered by the large company that had laid me off along with1,800 co-workers. In addition I had succumbed to an online resume writing service. The well meaning young man online suggested I eliminate most of my expansive, and I must say impressive, work history! in an effort to confine me to a single page and appear "less experienced," (i.e. "younger" ?) . What a mess.

I then heard about Tim.

Immediately after Tim received my sad little resume, he e-mailed me back with "we've gotta bring this resume into this millennium - starting NOW."

Following two brief, painless Skype sessions, Tim unveiled my brand new resume. It's bold. It's direct. It's engaging and absolutely truthful - just like Tim.

I can't say that I've found a job just yet, but Tim gave me a timely "kick-in-the-pants" to just get out there again with a strong resume, to help me get a little closer to the goal.

Thank you, Tim. You deliver - in the best way.

Recently I found myself needing to write a resume because of changes in my industry. I found this to completely overwhelming, and to think of writing a resume a real daunting task.

After viewing the free video chapters at, I decided to contacted Tim and began to learn how to write a resume that would show my experiences along with what a hiring manager is looking for.

Tim and I went back and forth, and to be honest, without his help I didn't think I could do this. Whenever I needed help Tim was always available, I can't say enough about how my experience turned from "Oh My God, how do I do this" to it's done, and I already have received responses from hiring Managers. Anyone who needs help with their resume should definitely contact Tim at

I was stuck in a horrible, dead end job and was getting absolutely nowhere in my job search. I reached out to Tim, and after looking over my resume he immediately was able to identify several problems.

With his help, I was able to overhaul my resume to not only be much more dynamic and eye-catching, but something able to cut through all of those filters that bigger companies use.

I truly enjoyed working with Tim throughout the entire process, and he was always there to offer his advice and give me the confidence I was missing.

With his expertise, I was able to get back into the industry I wanted. I am now on a MUCH happier career path.

I have known Tim for years and have heard time and time again about how he has helped numerous college graduates with their resumes. So when it was time for me to graduate and go on the job hunt, I too reached out to Tim for some help.

Not only did my resume come out amazing (according to my Universities Career Center Advisors) but it was an easy and simple process. Unlike many of my fellow students, I did not have to spend countless hours frustrated and confused about how to develop an articulate and professional resume.

When I first went to Tim with my list of previous job experiences, I was almost embarrassed that I had barely anything to work with. From that short list, Tim created a lengthy detailed resume which demonstrated my ability to be a responsible employee and a competitive applicant.

I am now two for two on the job search thanks to Tim!
