As a Positive Psychologist, I'm truly passionate about identifying and showcasing my clients' strengths, and helping my clients reach their unique career happiness goals. I'm immensely grateful that finding and highlighting what my clients are great at is what I get to do when writing résumés, career coaching, and helping my clients prepare for interviews.

For the last 19 years, I've been writing résumés for clients across the spectrum of career fields. My résumé work is featured in the Gallery of Best Résumés, 5th Edition. I also have a background as a hiring manager and as a professional who has served on a myriad of candidate search committees. I've reviewed hundreds of résumés and know what makes one candidate stand out from the rest.
One of the reasons I love what I do is because I enjoy capturing and telling people's stories. I always ask my clients to tell me about their proudest achievements because telling these stories helps to showcase individual passion, purpose, and personality. It often surprises my clients when I share that I spend anywhere from 10 to 20 hours on each of my résumé projects. I love reading thoroughly through everything my clients share with me and truly getting to know them. It helps me convey who they are in addition to what they've done.
I've coached my clients towards identifying careers where they can express their unique strengths, values, passions, and purposes. And, I've helped my clients gear up for important job interviews and launch small businesses. As career is inextricably connected with the other roles we play, I also coach my clients in creating happiness in other areas of their lives. Whatever your career or life goals are, I'd love to be your partner in ensuring that you reach them!
"Hello Colleen! I wanted to write to you to let you know that without a doubt, the resume you created for me, along with my LinkedIn profile, have created so much interest in my candidacy, that I received multiple interviews with top companies and today I was offered my "dream position at my dream company"! Prior to having you create my resume, I hadn't received many, if any hits or contacts. Also, the other interviewing details you sent me were just great and I used all your feedback. I will “officially” be accepting a Management position with a major Fortune 500 company this week!" ~ Mari B., Management
"I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for updating and redesigning my amazing resume and cover letter! It was only a matter of weeks after I publicly posted my new resume on CareerBuilder that my new employer found me!! Incredible!! I cannot thank you enough for being so wonderful to work with and providing a service well beyond my expectations and within such a short time frame! I went from an Administrative Assistant to now working as a department head and making the salary I have worked so hard to earn! You are amazing! I will refer you to all my family and friends, for sure!!" ~ Eryn G., Office Manager
"Dr. Georges contacted me very quickly and she provided a timeline that she stuck to. I uploaded my new resume and cover letter on 2 well known sites and she even updated my LinkedIn profile. I provided a copy to my head hunter as well and after about 4 days, I have received at least 10 calls from companies and recruiters over the past week. I had an interview on 10/3 and this morning 10/4 I got a call confirming I got the job I wanted in the field I was trying to transition into. Keep in mind this entire process from contacting Dr. Georges to me obtaining my new job has only taken about 2 weeks!" ~ Georgette B., Event & Meeting Management
"Colleen worked closely with me and has done a great job. She was able to create first rate resume & cover letters that have been noticed by recruiters and are key in helping me to get interviews. Several recruiters have pointed out that my resume design and content were very impressive and most important in getting me spotted. I very highly recommend Colleen and know she would do an excellent job for any future projects." ~ Art M., CFO
"Dr. Colleen Georges captured my career story in a concise, visually appealing resume. Through her work, I have obtained multiple high level interviews.
