Do you need a professional solution to help polish your career image?

That's exactly what I do: Helping you better brand yourself on the job market!

I love helping people move their careers forward through my custom writing and editing services. For 10+ years I've specialized in resume writing and consulting for executive, specialist and academic clients in Europe, North America and around the world.


Let me help you market yourself or your business identity more effectively with social media profiles, resumes and cover letters that stand out in the global or local job market.

Grab the added value of a makeover

I write, edit, improve and polish your job application documents and social media texts. With me, you'll always receive completely customized documents based on your individual needs, special achievements and your specific background. My clients see and appreciate the "before and after effect" of my work. When clients know that their personal brand comes through authentically, and they've highlighted the qualifications that match employer needs, it not only will help open the right doors, but will also greatly boost your overall confidence.

Originality is guaranteed.

I never use templates or recycle stockphrase, pre-formulated material you may find elsewhere. Cut-and-paste jobs, copying others, using stale, clichéed or standardized texts? No way. You can't possibly stand out from the crowd if you use the same old, average, plain vanilla texts and phrases that everybody else does. This won't get you far, and it's easily spotted and definitely not impressive to your target audience (busy and highly selective HR recruiters, hiring managers or other decision makers). 


Instead, what you need are texts that are written with 'heart and soul'. And this is exactly what I provide you: texts and documents that are customized, creative and unique, best highlighting your special combination of professional skills, achievements and personal strengths.


I deliver to you high-power, keyword-rich texts and business profiles to help you generate the contacts and interest you want.

For job applications across all professions and sectors, from academic to executive

Each year I receive hundreds of requests from people to review, edit and optimize their job application documents. A very great number of resumes, CVs, cover letters and profiles pass through my workspace. For over 10 years I've been in contact with hundreds of professionals across many fields of industry, including core clients and decision-makers in senior and executive management positions. I know how to adapt the trends and styles used by top career achievers and other successful professionals. I use my knowledge and passion for my craft to create polished, authentic and original texts in the English language for my clients.

Confidentiality is guaranteed.

I don't run an agency and I don't farm out your documents and information to anyone else. All correspondence and documents are handled with 100% confidentiality. I'm your exclusive contact person and I'll personally handle your project from beginning to end, including all follow up. I will never share your information and contact details with anyone, that's my promise to you. 

 Your Niche is Unique

Your personal career image (your "self-branding") is about creating, using & mixing your own special recipe of key ingredients.  


There's no one who's taken the same exact path, offers the same background and has the same voice as you.


So now it's time to  identify and focus on your unique combo of strengths & talents and feel more confident in your market niche.


Let me help you do that!


Your Words Count

Polishing your image through words is key, because your written communication is most often the first point of contact and first chance to impress.


Let me help you create an improved image first, so you gain confidence in knowing you have above-average, stand-out texts to get the positive responses you deserve.



Attitude is Huge

The first step in creating your own brand flavour is all about attitude: a positive and confident mind-set that comes from understanding yourself and properly highlighting your skill set and uniqueness.


Then you can position your customized flavour in the market while considering the needs of decision-makers at any type of company or organization.







Your Smile Is Your Logo. You Are Your Own Brand.

Thinking Globally for Globally-Minded Clients

I help people to position themselves in local markets, and I also work with people who are making career pivots across the country or internationally. New career situations can include a project or long-term work abroad, studying or interning internationally or a transfer to a new country within a large multinational corporation. Anywhere you go, international recruiters and multicultural decision-making teams will require stand-out, above-average application documents.

Custom Writing Projects, Editing, Proofreading, Ghostwriting...
Delivering creative, effective results for clients at all levels...

Customized learning workshops, personal sessions & mentoring, creating globally-usable documents...

Let me put my energy, expertise and enthusiasm to use for you. With the results I deliver, you'll feel more confident in moving your career into an exciting new direction.

Are you serious about taking your career to the next level?  Are you looking for quality, confidentiality and creativity combined with originality, diligence and a clear added-value?


If you are, I look forward to hearing from you!
