The CV …your life on two pages.

Developing a top quality CV or résumé is a type of artwork, both evolutionary and adaptive.

This work of art requires creativity, insight, an analytical mind, and a keen sense for language and communication.

To be consistently effective, the CV must have a fitting structure, a reader-friendly layout, and text that is precise, streamlined, and sales-oriented.
The final product is a creation of value …lasting value, ready for repeated use.

Be it the complete development of a CV, the optimization of an existing CV, or the translation of a ‘Lebenslauf’, I work for and with you to ensure premium quality.

Interview training ... customized to fit the specific needs of the individual.

The training, ideally scheduled shortly before the actual interview, enables even highly-experienced top managers to present themselves more effectively and persuasively.

Intensive 1-to-1 sessions are a combination of interview simulation, content coaching, and comprehensive feedback. The client and his/her unique situation with its own mix of demands, pressure, and action steps remain the center of attention.

The goal: to empower the client to present himself/herself in a confident, winning manner that emphasizes personal strengths and core competencies and demonstrates added value.

As a consultant...

  • I shape customized, target-driven CVs, focusing on solid content, effective structure, finely-tuned and reader-friendly wording, appealing layout & design, and absolute accuracy.

  • I promote interview success as a sparring partner and coach who dares to dig deep, to ask tough, even uncomfortable questions, and to provide straightforward feedback.

  • I experience ongoing success largely due to my personal brand:

    • a unique ability to connect with, understand, and respect the individual

    • a comprehensive focus and an eye for meaningful details linked with honest, constructive feedback

    • relaxed professionalism combined with friendly, authentic openness

    • extensive interaction with management from all hierarchical levels and industries.
