Jamie Phillips, Resume Coach

My work as a resume writer & job search coach draws on over eight years of working in executive search for the international development and for-purpose sectors.

Through recruiting senior-level and hard-to-fill roles all over the world, I’ve read thousands of resumes and cover letters for all kinds of roles. I know what hiring managers are looking for and how to stand out from the pack.
