I would like the opportunity to work for you as your Personal, Professional Writer. I specialize in writing job getting cover letters and resumés that results in offshore employment. No matter how good you think your current resumé or CV is, I can make it better, and in the majority of cases much better.

Over the years, I've found the element most often left out of a resumé is the element of SELL. Another word for "sell" is marketing. Marketing YOU to offshore oil rig job recruiters is what I do, and do it quite well. I will market (SELL) why YOU are the best choice to fill the position you are applying for.

I spent most of my adult life working in the offshore oilfields of the world. If I were going back offshore, the following resumé is what I would use to get the job of my choice. The resumé I write for you will look much like the one below but with your own personal details posted. I can have a first draft in your hands within 48 hours.

Do yourself a favor. Remove the anxiety, worry and stress of trying to write your own resumé. HIRE US to take over your cover letter / resumé preparation. Not only will we write a professional resumé that will blow your socks off, we will keep it up to date at no additional cost to you.
