Behind the Resume

Meg Applegate, Certified Professional Resume Writer, LinkedIn Profile Writer, Job Search Strategist.JPG

As a natural opportunity visionary and encourager, I am a matchmaker for people and their next best opportunity through writing and design. I hold the Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) credential and a Master's degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs (M.S.Ed). My career journey has been anything but straight, nevertheless, my passion for the last decade has been connecting people to their passion. A native Hoosier and enthusiast of antiques and old homes, I am driven by my faith, family, dark chocolate and my morning cup of coffee.

I felt clueless and inadequate to write a professional resume. I didn’t know how to begin. Meg had no fear. My favorite part was the personal coaching. Meg is confident, professional, timely and knowledgeable. I feel prepared to begin submitting my resume after working with Meg.

Meg is extremely interested in learning about you as a person and not just finding out details to complete the service (although it was accomplished professionally and in detail).

— Katie L., Senior Marketing and Operations Manager

 
 

It all started when...

I sat down as an overwhelmed high school student with my Dad to write my first resume. His guidance was simple. It was a Q & A about an elephant and eating habits:"How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time."

Since that first sit down, I've written many resumes with the same method. I use my utensils carefully in crafting resumes: attentiveness to detail, packing a punch with keywords, and telling career success stories with care and creativity. My goal is to fill up on elephant so you can be fulfilled in life.
