He's knowledgeable and exceptionally helpful with a warm personality that comes through in all communications. I'm going through a rather difficult career transition and Adam made it so much easier with his tools, advice and the excellent cover letter and resume he produced for me. Hire him now for a modern resume, impactful cover letter and great tips about job searching in general." -Executive Leader, 2021 UpWork Client "There are resume writers and then there is Adam.

Adam is the exception, he was "brutally" honest in his feedback (which was appreciated), provided actionable insights, and spent the necessary time to understand my career goals. Through this process, Adam was able to deliver an A+ resume that has landed me interviews with 25% of the companies I applied for, which in my book is pretty incredible. Results speak for themselves and if you want the right result, work with Adam." -Taylor G. -2021 Client ______________________________________________________________________ PERSONAL INTERESTS: Golf, travel, DIY home projects, fitness, & brew tours

"Adam was a joy to work with. His expertise in career and resume development was apparent throughout every stop of the process. Beginning with our initial meeting to discuss my project goals, Adam was thorough in his explanation of industry trends and laid out a detailed and efficient plan to redevelop my resume, moving from a 9-page academic CV to a clean 2-page resume. The revision process was incredibly helpful and Adam provided detailed comments on every change he made while also addressing all of my questions/comments. The final product was delivered on time and exceeded my expectations. He even provided a bonus tips/guidance document. I would highly recommend Adam for resume development and career coaching."

"Adam did an amazing job rewriting my resume. I applied for a job with the old version of my resume, and while I was still being interviewed by the company (five interviews in total), I got my updated resume from Adam and resubmitted it to the company because I wanted the executive team to have it. When the company's recruiter saw it during a video call, she told me that it looked great and was one of the best resumes she's ever seen. Of course, I got the job! Thanks, Adam. I will make sure to come back to you when it's time to step up again."

"Adam was amazing to work with! He edited my academic CV, my resume, and created a short one page resume for me. He also created matching letterhead for my cover letters. I really appreciated how many edits he did, and how FAST they were done. I have already referred friends to him, and will use him again."
