About Me

I left a job I was miserable at without another position lined up, and it was the best decision I’ve ever made! Getting denied from a position I thought would be a perfect fit enabled me to take the time to figure out what I really wanted, which caused me to start my own business and take control of my career. I understand what it’s like to feel turned around and unsure of where you should go next, and I want to help you figure that out! I have a passion for helping others present the best version of themselves, both on paper and in person, and as the 6th generation born and raised in San Francisco, I thrive within organized chaos. If there is one thing I’ve learned as a Certified Professional Resume Writer, it’s that people almost always sell themselves short. Let’s face it, it’s hard to write about yourself! It’s easy to forget little details, or undervalue your success, but it’s important to know your worth and highlight it when you’re in the market for a new job or looking for a career boost. Confidence is the best accessory, and if you’re confident in your abilities, prospective employers and industry professionals will be confident in you too. As a Certified Professional Resume Writer, it’s my goal to give each of my clients individualized attention to help with career optimization, resume review, and overall industry insight! I’ve worked in recruiting and understand how hiring professionals think, giving you inside knowledge on how to make your documents and your application stand out! Have questions about resumes? Want help gaining direction for your career? Need to figure out your next career move? Want to know what it’s like to start your own business? I’ve got you covered, and am here to be your resource! I don’t make promises I can’t keep, but I can promise you this: I will help you gain self-confidence and produce your best application package to go out into the world presenting the best version of yourself.

Reviews

"Michele was so incredibly kind, helpful, insightful, and efficient in helping me optimize my resume and cover letter. She answered all my questions and gave amazing and immensely helpful career advice. Michele is friendly and personable, and really cares about helping you improve not only your resume and cover letter, but overall professional and personal growth. Michele took my resume to a whole new level and really gave me the tools to succeed in my job search and was so happy to answer all my questions, help me prep for interviews, give me tips for optimizing my LinkedIn, and overall job search tips so I can be as successful as possible in my job search! I loved my first session with her so much and found it so helpful that I booked a second one the following week to further our conversations and mentorship. I would highly recommend Michele to anyone seeking career advice, resume help, or overall mentorship as you're trying to grow professionally and make any transition!!"
