I started Virginia Franco Resumes several years ago when I recognized that my 15+ years of corporate communications and web, newspaper and magazine journalism offered me a unique understanding of how to translate the complex into plain-speak with just a 90-minute interview, how people read documents when pressed for time, when reading online and when reading in print.
The bottom line is that reading has changed – and documents written as recently as five years ago today might not get a second look.
I bring my years of expertise influenced by years collaborating with hiring experts, HR leaders and recruiters to write:
Strategically crafted and branded executive career documents for today’s online, small screen readers that translate the complex into compelling, and get interviews in 60 days guaranteed.
Executive Resumes that rank highly by ATS or HR screening software.
Executive Resumes and Cover letters that are 100% unique – never a carbon copy of what’s already on the desk of every hiring manager.
I am proud to hold double certifications in my industry.
I am one of approx. 60 Executive Resume writers certified by the National Résumé Writers Association as a NCRW (National Certified Résumé Writer) and hold a CPRW certification (Certified Professional Résumé Writer) with the Professional Association of Résumé Writers and Career Coaches. I am a member of the Career Thought Leaders Association and Career Directors International.
This training has given me the tools to write your story – no matter how complex or convoluted it may feel. It will be strategically branded, keyword-rich, and position you optimally.
I hold a B.S. in Journalism from the University of Richmond (go Spiders!) and a Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) from the University of Maryland.
