If anyone is looking to build a new resume or seriously upgrade your existing one, I highly suggest reaching out to Shirl Gerlach for help. What a wonderful experience it was working with her. She did everything from really getting to know me, my background and experience to providing best practices for interviews. As soon as I posted my resume to potential employers, I started receiving contacts immediately for interviews. Honestly, if you want that new job, please contact Shirl. She is the ultimate professional and really knows her stuff.
