Meet Your Writer - Cheryl Milmoe, CARW, ACRW

Helping clients navigate change is the cornerstone of my writing and career advisement business. My job is to identify your marketable skills, showcase your value, highlight your professional attributes, and write a compelling narrative that positions you for the job you want next.

Words make all the difference when it comes to career documents. Your headline, branding statement, summary and overall appearance of your resume has to deliver a high-impact message about you — immediately.

Most resumes state the facts about where you’ve worked and what you’ve done, but ifs your career stories that will sell you to your next employer. Facts tell: stories self. More than twenty years in the careers industry and corporate experience in global HR departments provided a keen understanding of the job market and taught me what companies look for when hiring talent. I hold multiple national certifications in coaching and advanced resume writing which is how I
help my clients get noticed, get interviewed, and get hired.

I write for C-Level executives, senior management, directors, managers, and professionals in diverse industries. Your resume, Linkedln profile, E-Note, cover letter or professional bio will capture the distinguishing details about your professional brand, set you apart from your competition, accelerate your search process, and get your reader’s attention.
