I am a career services professional and my company is based in Atlanta, Georgia but currently in Savannah, Georgia. I specialize in various career services, including but not limited to résumé writing, salary negotiation, interviewing skills and dressing for success, amongst other career services.
I learned I had a niche for critiquing résumés shortly after I began working on my own with my career counselor towards the end of completing my undergraduate degree. I learned to identify what employers look for when reviewing résumés as well as how to create a clean and professional finished product. I also learned how to perform job searches, apply for jobs and prepare for interviews. They referred me to their friends and so on and the rest is history. That is how RésumAides was created.
One of my goals in life is to help others discover their hidden talents and use those to create a better livelihood for themselves in whatever way possible. I believe that everyone wants to live their best life and become a better version of themselves while doing so. Although it may not seem to go hand in hand with career services, it does. When seeking employment, you are looking for a position that is the best fit for YOU. As an individual you have to know who you are and what you are seeking, you have to know your strengths and what you can bring to a company. Some have to work hard to overcome anxiety while interviewing. Ultimately, you must know what separates you from every other applicant and you must use this to sell yourself during the entire interviewing process. It takes time but it is well worth every minute that goes into doing so. There are so many who have not yet experienced being able to secure the best position with the best pay simply because they were not taught how to do so. I am here to share what I have learned with as many people as I can. If I only reach one it's enough for me knowing that I have helped one person change their situation for the better.

WRITING IS LIFE In my spare time, I enjoy writing as it's how I express myself. I also love to travel. When I am not doing either of those things I am shopping for home decor. I recently relocated to Savannah from Atlanta so I am often still in Atlanta handling any unfinished business and visiting friends and family. I am blessed to say that I have met some awesome people along this journey called life that share many of the same interests and have some of the same aspirations that I do. They definitely are few and far in between but they have supported my vision since day one and I am appreciative for them.
