A list of professional resume writers recommended by IT executives in the Heller Search community.
Recently, we asked readers of The Heller Report to share the names of professional resume writers they have worked with in the past who they would recommend to their peers based on the client experience and results. Here is a list of the responses we received, including the reasons for each recommendation.
The firms and or individuals below (listed alphabetically) all help clients with their resumes, and some of them offer career coaching and related services as well. Contact them directly for details.
Many readers recommended executive coaches who do not necessarily specialize in resumes. We have published a separate list of recommended executive coaches here.

"Kim has a process that pulls details and outcomes together to make an IT leader's career highlights show through. My resume went from not getting noticed to getting interviews."
Donald Burns, email@example.com
"Due to a reorganization in my company, my role was in jeopardy (after 27 years of service). Although I had kept my resume updated over the years, it was 'old school' and needed a real makeover, and I needed it fast. A colleague of mine recommended that I get in touch with Donald, and I don't regret the contact and the small investment for a second. I have a wonderful resume now that is really helping me sell myself in a much better way. "
