Since its inception in Burbank, CA in 1958, CareerPro has helped hundreds of thousands of individual and corporate clientsdramatically reduce their job hunting time, and obtain more lucrative jobs of choice.
Since I purchased the Sandy Springs location in 1991, CareerPro Resumes has helped tens of thousands of clients continue to improve upon their job hunting success, and have helped CareerPro Resumes build upon its stellar reputation.
Our corporate clients have included: AT&T, Keiser Permanente, Holland Corporate, Axial Corporation, and many others. Additionally, CareerPro Resumes has served as the go to resume company for veterans and downsized professionals, with various public and private outsourcing agencies sending their highly trained and experienced outgoing talent. Our clients have come to us from throughout the continental US and Hawaii, and have obtained highly lucrative positions nationally and globally, including high paying contracts in Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Kuwait, and other areas of strife and resurgence.
Our clients seek and obtain jobs of choice in diverse working environments including: government, corporate, academic, non-profit, and NGO. Our clients span the gamut of the entire working population: from young college graduates with little to no experience, to mid-career applicants seeking to upgrade jobs and maximize their salary during their peak earning year, to upper and executive level leadership seeking their dream job, to senior applicants seeking a less stressful retirement job.
Money is not the only parameter of success for many individuals who seek out our expertise for their resume writing and career consulting needs. Many nurses or healthcare practitioners, for example are seeking to leave the high-productivity, high-stress hospital environment for more relaxing home healthcare environments.
Teachers who have paid their dues in tough, inner city schools are either seeking more supporting work environments outside of the city, or they want to get out of teaching completely, and get paid for their expertise. Others are trying to escape non-supportive corporate environments, or just want to try a new career. A larger percentage of the workforce than most people would imagine, or attempting to switch industries, and seek us out for our unparalleled ability to identify and highlights their transferable skills.
Nobody should write their own resume.
Many of our clients are repeat clients, sometimes from decades earlier. One client recently came back to see us as said, “This is the fourth time I have had you write and update my resume. Each of the first three times you’ve worked on my resume, I’ve gotten high paying contract jobs from Atlanta to San Antonio. This is my fourth visit to you, and I’m trying to go four for four.”
We are also proud of our high rate of referral business. One of our clients was the Police Chief of Dahlonega, Georgia, and has since become the Mayor of Dahlonega. His resume helped him formulate his public selling points, and he was so appreciative that he referred his wife, then his son in to see us.
A client recently sent in three of her friends, when they saw how good her resume looked, and a co-worker sent in two more of her associates when they saw how fast she got hired to a great new company.
We have had thousands of success stories, and some clients have even doubled their salaries, or have obtained the exact jobs they were shooting for. We obtain a lot of satisfaction from each of our clients successes, and take great care to make the next client even more satisfied as the last.
My father, a New York Native and former Judge in my home town of New Orleans, always reminded me of how he had built his own career from Social Worker, to Juvenile Court Probation Officer, to Attorney, to Juvenile Court Judge, to State Court of Appeals Judge. “As an attorney, I was only as good as my last case,” he said. “As a judge, I was only as good as my last judgement.
As a journalist, you were only as good as your last article, and as a resume writer, you are only as good as your last resume.” I have taken his Yankee pride in his work ethic to heart. I know how much energy needs to go into each resume in order for my clients to blow past the competition, and I try to do that and more for each and every client, whether individual or corporate.
