I grew up near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and received my bachelor's degree from the George Washington University in DC.
My first job out of college was copyediting technical manuscripts for the American Psychological Association, publisher of the APA Style Guide, the standard for professional and academic writing.
In the mid-'90s, my wife and I moved to San Francisco, where I found a temp job formatting resumes for an IT recruiting firm.
I spent the next 20 years in the recruiting industry, specializing in financial services, retail, and technology.
I won state, national, and global recognition as a top performer, with a reputation for discovering new clients and opportunities during extremely challenging job markets, including the dot-com crash, post-9/11, and the 2008-2009 recession.
I launched Way Beyond Resumes to combine the kind of highly engaging writing absent from most resumes with 20+ years of inside knowledge about the hiring process.
The techniques used by the top recruiters to uncover hidden opportunities can be adapted by anyone seeking a career change or improvement to generate viable job leads.
I provide the strategy - branding, tools, and process - to help people find the greatest number of opportunities with the least amount of time and effort.
