Crafting Optimized Résumés To Help You Land An Interview.  

Who We Are

 

Writing With A Flair was founded in 2014 on the premise that by focusing on crafting keyword-rich résumés and career marketing documents, we could showcase your qualifications, results, skills, and key strengths to match the requirements of a targeted industry or profession.  We have found the more effectively you can tailor or optimize your résumé keywords to be an exact match to what is found in a job description will increase your interview opportunities and chances your résumé will be seen by a recruiter or hiring manager.  Also, add variations of keywords to account for recruiter searches.  Focus on creating a resume that clearly conveys your most important, recent, and relevant experiences to the reader.  Click here to see other résumé tips.

Delivering exceptional service starts from within the company; and having a knowledgeable, supportive, and engaging certified résumé writer that lives up to the standards established by the PARW/CC, a group that requires testing before one can become a Certified Professional Résumé Writer (CPRW).  

As Senior Writer, Margo holds an Executive M.B.A. from George Mason University, a Master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of Oklahoma, and completed a comprehensive six-month senior executive leadership program from Georgetown University in Washington, DC.  She has 15+ years experience in crafting résumés and is a certified résumé writer accredited by the PARW/CC.  Margo is a LinkedIn profile writer accredited by the NRWA, a group that requires annual training and testing to show expertise in crafting engaging, conversational, and value-based profiles before one can become a National Certified Online LinkedIn Profile Expert (NCOPE).  She received recognition from the NRWA for her résumé writing responses that were published on the Ask the Experts blog.  

At Writing With A Flair, we have taken résumé development best practices and infused it with a results-focused approach.  ​Today, over 98% of Fortune 500 companies use Applicant Tracking System (ATS) portals to analyze and scan applications, résumés, and CVs to rank and filter best-suited applicants for the vacancy criteria they are seeking to fill.  From students or entry-level jobseekers to mid-level professionals seeking a career change or promotion, to military service members transitioning to the public or private sector, to executives or senior leaders seeking to refine accomplishment-focused résumés, we can create you an optimized résumé that gets results.  When companies do not have an automated scoring system, recruiters tend to skim resumes in a matter of seconds.  Ensure your top skills, qualifications, and keywords are displayed prominently.  Click here to see what clients are saying about our services, résumé content, and design.  

Writing With A Flair proudly supports the American Cancer Society for their mission to rid cancer and the Wounded Warrior Project for their programs, services, and events offered to wounded veterans of military actions after September 11, 2001.  We also support community partnering with the charming town of Middleburg, located in northern Virginia.  Because of it's small-town feel, local shops, wineries, dining, and mountain scenery, it is these amenities this location was chosen for the business.
