Active Search Assignments

Resume and LinkedIn Refresh

Do you need a resume or LI refresh that will impress employers and advance your job search? 


As a high-profile recruiting firm in the CPG space, we will evaluate your profile and candidly guide you on what a recognized recruiter or employer wants to see. We have teamed up with a professional resume writer and added a supplemental career consultation service. Our service offers an honest evaluation of your resume and LinkedIn profile and provides a high quality revamp so that you can impress employers and get a foot in the door. 


Why are we offering this service?


There are a ton of resume and LinkedIn services out there and they are a minefield to navigate, charging anywhere between $5 to over $1500. The cheapest services are using boiler templates with a box-ticking philosophy, and the expensive ones tend to be superfluous, providing lengthy backgrounds and bios. While that's fine for a website or a blog, it's more than the average recruiter, who looks at hundreds of profiles a day, has time to read. 


From our expertise in the field, we know what your future employer wants to see. We will discuss your background and needs, will coach you on how best to effectively convey your unique character and proficiency to recruiters and employers, and provide an impressive revamp of your resume ready to shoot off to your dream job. 


Our simple 4-step career consultation and resume revamp process: 

  • Contact us (below) to schedule the initial consultation (15-30 mins) to discuss your background, skillset, career ambitions, and job search. 

  • After the initial chat, Michael will consult with the professional resume writer, to view your current resume and LinkedIn profile, and discuss changes to tone, content, appeal, and relevance to your job search. We will keep in touch with you during this process to make sure that we continue to convey the appropriate message.

  • Within one week, we will turn around a new resume, and LinkedIn profile suggestions, tailored to your specific job search and utilizing all of your relevant experience. 

  • We will call you once the final resume is delivered to discuss the improvements and give our feedback and answer any questions you may have. 


If interested, packages average $499 for the consultation, resume rewrite and LI recommendations.  Similar to our recruitment solutions, there's not a one size fits all package so we will give you an honest quote based on your current personal marketing materials etc. To get the conversation started or receive a quote click below and send your resume, LI profile and contact info for review. Or just email the info to



"We reached out to Michael for a high-end, specific need. He was able to find candidates that directly met our requirements and he presented both sides well. He managed the entire process with professionalism, patience, and tenacity. He was a pleasure to partner with - I would hire Michael again and highly recommend him."
