High Tech High

I was asked to co-host a series of resume workshops at High Tech High in San Diego. HTH has evolved into an integrated network of sixteen charter schools serving approximately 6,350 students in grades K-12 across four campuses. This is not the High School learning environment we grew up in folks! It was amazing and the kids were extremely receptive. I worked with 5x groups of 11th graders, presenting, advising, and giving insight into the working world and of course info on the topic of resumes. The highlights for me were working one-on-one with them and a per/session 2-minute transfer of knowledge about the Japanese concept of “Ikigai” a fascinating ideology that helps you find and realize your life’s purpose.

Career Transition Services

Case Study: Résumés, Career-Counseling Services (Transition via lay-off), Thirteen Employees including the branch General Manager. 

Sky West Airlines was closing a location at the Palomar Airport in North San Diego county.

They benevolently decided to provide the thirteen long-time employees with career transition support services. I contracted with them to provide each employee with a résumé , cover-letter, and career counseling services. They’re roles ranged  from the branch General Manager down to Customer-Service Representatives and Operations/Baggage Handlers.

All the employees loved their résumés, and I have received repeat business from quite a few of them as they grew into new roles and transitioned further in their careers, requiring more services liked LinkedIn and salary negotiation.

The New Temp Economy

Reported by Karla Murphy

It is in everyone’s best interest to be aware of your rights and safety when considering taking on temp work. It is important that you look carefully over your contract and know the expectations, as well as limitations, that the temp agency may present to you. I am available for consultation regarding these matters. I can also navigate you in the course of actions to take, if you desire to make a temporary position a permanent one.

Take advantage of hiring peaks



Major hiring initiatives may follow close on the heels of the holidays and summer. “The big months for hiring are January and February, and late September and October,” says Testa. “Job seekers who make contact right at the start of these cycles have the best chance of being hired.”

— John Rossheim, Monster Senior Contributing Writer


I have a unique insight into these hiring cycles. Let’s prepare you for all of all the opportunities this upcoming hiring season. When there is any downtime in the year, that is also the best time to present yourself to hiring managers. They often have the extra time available to view your application more extensively.

Resumes done right nurse



I have had a large demand for my services from healthcare workers, specifically nurses.

I have put my pen to work and created a custom curriculum for nursing professionals that includes: Résumé + Cover Letter,  Interview Preparation, and Custom Job Search.

  1. Great Résumé:  My proprietary and unique way of presenting your info to hospitals, clinics, and other employers has resulted in great success within the field.  New Grads take note!
  2. Interview Preparation: I will help you distinguish yourself as the best nursing candidate by teaching you what to say, and how to say it, in the highly competitive interview process. Behavioral and Skills-Based preparation
  3. Job-Search: My custom job-search methods work extremely well, and very quickly.  Saves hours! This will help you make the best use of YOUR time.
  4. LinkedIn Profile: A digital version of your Résumé on the world’s most utilized job/career related business networking platform. A must-have for the serious job seeker. Let recruiters find you more efficiently.


I have worked with nurses from all levels: brand-new graduates fresh out of nursing school to thirty-year master practitioners. They get their “dream jobs” at some of the top hospitals and clinics in California and in sixteen other states!

Placement, staffing, and recruiting services are all constantly evolving and developing into bigger business segments of my company and I will look forward to enhancing the relationships I have as well as creating new ones with with amazing healthcare practitioners around the country.

I also enjoy seeing my clients progress in career and role, coming back over the years to get their resumes updated as they add certifications., experience, and titles!

“With modern technological advances and growing competition for the best nursing jobs, a vague, uninspiring resume just won’t cut it. The opportunities are vast, employers have diverse needs, and every nurse is unique. In this ever-changing world of online applications, writing a strong nursing resume that portrays your skills and accomplishments in an impressive way can be a daunting task.

Think of your job search as your own personal marketing campaign. And the product is you! Your resume is essentially an advertisement for your brand. A brand is not simply a logo, it’s the overall impression you give your audience. In this case, your audience is the potential employer.

As with any advertisement, the goal of your resume is to pique your audience’s interest. It does not get you the job. It gets you an interview. Once you’ve been invited for an interview, your audience is already partially ‘sold’, but it’s up to you to close the deal.

Just as an advertisement has a few seconds to capture the attention of an audience, your resume also has limited time to express your value to the reader. Or, in many cases, a resume-reading robot.” This is from Nurses.Org and I agree with a lot of the content expressed.
