About Virginia Franco

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.

I’ve shared my philosophy on writing Executive Resumes and supporting career documents as the host of the Resume Storyteller podcast, and in various publications and podcasts – including Forbes, Huffington Post, Job-Hunt, Ivy Exec, Business2Community.com, Career Sidekick, MedReps, Career Cloud, Blue Steps and NotActivelyLooking.com. 

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.

My Credentials

I am proud to hold four industry certifications:

  • 1 of <60 Executive Resume writers certified by the National Resume Writers Association as a NCRW (National Certified Resume Writer)
  • 1 of <30 to earn the NRWA’s first NCOPE certification (Nationally Certified Online Professional Expert) – everything you ever wanted to know about LinkedIn but were afraid to ask!
  • 1 of <25 to hold the Master Resume Writer designation by Career Thought Leaders
  •  CEIP (Certified Executive Interview Professional) & CPRW certifications (Certified Professional Résumé Writer) with the Professional Association of Résumé Writers and Career Coaches.

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.
