Triple Certified Resume Writer

Amped Up Resumes, that Tell Your Story
By a 3x Certified Resume Writer
With 18+ Years’ Experience

As a Rising Star in Your Career Field,
you need a competitive edge.

You have to do something different.

You have to be different.

Whatever season you are in – transitioning into a new career, overcoming a layoff, or moving up the ladder – I am here to tell you that having a powerful, polished resume that communicates your unique brand and sets you apart from other candidates is mandatory.

Help in gaining a competitive edge is well within your reach!

If you’ve tried writing your own resume, you know just how difficult it is to decide what information you should include and what you should leave off of your resume. You also know how challenging it is to write about yourself!

Your resume MUST build the hiring authorities confidence in you as a candidate.

Your resume is your gateway to interviews, and, as such, your document needs to clearly communicate that you are “the candidate” for the job! If you’ve written your own resume (or had someone else prepare one for you) and you are not getting interviews, either YOUR RESUME or YOUR JOB SEARCH STRATEGY is holding you back.

What is the #1 Piece of Information Most Self-Written Resumes are Missing?

With just under 20 years’ experience writing resumes, I have created interview-winning resumes for thousands of career search documents for CEOs, COOs, CFOs, CIOs, Presidents, Vice Presidents, and Directors of Operations, Finance, and Technology.

Do you want a customized resume that will set you apart?

Are you ready for a resume that will help get you results?


Let's Talk Resumes...

Take an objective look at your current resume. Is it an older style that opens with an objective statement? Is it a template that looks like someone else’s? Does it list your duties rather showcasing a compelling value proposition?

Does it look like Samuel’s original?


Most people struggle with putting together a resume and the #1 piece of information missing from the most self-written resumes is the candidate’s accomplishments. Job candidates are married to the idea of older resume styles – an objective rather than a summary; duties rather than accomplishments; excessive details from their employment history or trying to limit their information to one page. And the #1 piece of advice I can give you is: Your resume should be targeted toward your future!

HOW CAN Tammy Shoup, Certified Professional
Resume Writer HELP?

As a triple-certified resume writer with (just shy of) 20 years’ experience, I help C-Suite Executives field more offers by creating high-impact career search documents.

I work directly with my clients – that is one-on-one with you from start to finish – to define your experience, skills, and accomplishments in a manner that helps highlight the value you offer an employer.

By working directly with my clients, I create dynamic content that aligns your experience with your career goals.

Remember, employers receive hundreds of applications. So, your resume needs to be laser-focused and employer-ready. Trying to put together your own resume could ultimately cost you — time (longer job search) and money (lost wages).

Still Trying to Decide?

Consider the numbers! After the average 37-weeks of unemployment, YOU LOSE …

$71,000 (based upon annual salary of $100,000) – that is approximately $1900 weekly and $274 daily

Job seekers are 40% more likely to get noticed with a professionally written resume (Forbes Magazine, Goudreu).


“YOU ARE AMAZING AT WHAT YOU DO!! Sent the resume you prepared for me. Won the interview! Got the job!!! Thanks!”

“The resume she created for me got me a number of interviews within weeks of sending them out to potential employers. Were it not for her help, I may not have gotten as far as I did in those interview processes.”

– Sales Executive

“…the results were amazing … an incredible transition using an updated format and targeted words…I landed the first position using (her) resume.”

Let’s Start Today

I work directly with you. Most communication is via email so I can focus on what I do best, WRITING! Why email? Written communication allows both of us to focus on what is being said AND busy lifestyles and time zone differences make it more convenient for clients to communicate according to their schedule.

Along with my Certified Professional Writing Certification and membership in the leading career industry associations, I have also written for big-name job boards and know what format to use and what information needs to be highlighted to set you apart from other candidates!
