Woman Creating ResumesIf you are like most of the passionate, talented resume writers out there, you are confident in your writing abilities and your ability to craft compelling, persuasive resume copy that showcases your clients’ impressive achievements and qualifications.

But you are NOT SO CONFIDENT and get a SINKING feeling of INSECURITY in your stomach when you see the beautifully designed resumes produced by some of your peers.

In fact, you have really started to WORRY that you could be LOSING BUSINESS to your competitors who know how to create modern, eye-catching resumes.

Things have changed SO much…color, graphics, charts and graphs, fancy formats. And on top of it all, you need to worry about ATS compatibility. Ugh!

Sound about right? Then you probably recognize yourself in one or more of the following:

  • You are SO SICK AND TIRED of over-spending hours hunched over your keyboard worrying yourself sick about a resume you are creating for a client, WASTING TIME, and falling further and further behind in your work because you just CAN’T GET IT RIGHT!

  • You WASTE precious time tweaking fonts and tabs and color schemes, getting more and more FRUSTRATED trying to get everything lined up properly, experimenting with charts and graphs and graphic elements, but are NEVER HAPPY with the end product.

  • You are committed to creating ATS-friendly resumes for your clients but are CONFUSED about what is acceptable and what is not and are concerned about MESSING THIS UP for your client because you aren’t sure about the ATS compatibility of all the design elements.

YOU AREN’T ALONE!

As a professional resume writer myself, with more than 25 years in the industry, I TOTALLY understand!

You know your writing skills are top-notch, but you know that writing alone isn’t enough anymore…you need to take things up a notch (or two or ten notches) but you DON’T KNOW HOW!!

I felt the same way when I first began to notice the trend toward more graphical and colorful resumes. What a CHORE to keep up-to-date with constantly changing trends!

Writing the content for resumes is hard enough. Graphic design and technical skills were NOT part of the job description!

What if I couldn’t learn and keep up with all the changing trends and requirements?

How would I stay competitive?

Would my clients stop getting results?

Would my business eventually dry up and have to close?

I admit that I had my moments when I wondered if I was cut out for the profession. But I’m pretty stubborn and when I’m faced with a challenge, I usually just double down to surmount it.

That’s why, since that initial realization, I have spent YEARS experimenting, taking online classes, reading, studying, and researching…learning what works for my clients and what doesn’t work.

Happily, in the process, I learned I had a rare talent.

I actually grew to love the challenge of creating unique, eye-catching custom designs that were thoughtfully structured and strategically formatted.

And in return, my clients began reporting AMAZING SUCCESS in their job searches. I have COUNTLESS notes from clients telling me that the resumes I had created for them got awesome reviews from recruiters and ultimately propelled their careers ahead faster than they ever thought possible.

And guess what…my ability to produce such unique, custom-designed career documents gave me an INCREDIBLE EDGE IN THE MARKET because I was giving my clients an incredible edge too. My services are now so in demand that I can easily charge and get $7K for working with just a single client. I create custom-designed resumes, infographic networking resumes, cover letters, executive biographies, and more.

The Difference Between a Resume Writer Who Makes $40K/year and One Who Makes $100K+/year is a Combination of EFFICIENCY and EXPERTISE in Your Craft

Resume Design Examples

Wanting to share my love of design with my colleagues, I have presented at multiple industry conferences and webinars.

I’ve done my best to teach other resume writers the fundamentals of resume design, and more importantly, ATS-friendly resume design. My resumes have also since been featured in countless books on the craft of resume writing and have won multiple awards.

The problem is that most resume writers want to WRITE! This is what they love and this is what they do best, and they know their income (in most cases) is dependent on the number of clients they work with. It takes time away from paying clients to deal with all this other “stuff.”

After every presentation, my inbox would fill with questions. Even with instruction, most people find document design challenging. And it makes sense. After all, Microsoft Word is a word processor. While it also includes powerful design capabilities, this isn’t the primary function of Word and most people don’t know how to use even a tiny fraction of its capabilities. Many struggle to learn the basics of design and the ways in which design impacts ATS compatibility.

That’s why I began turning my favorite designs into templates. So that YOU don’t have to go through the same grief.

So that you can DO WHAT YOU DO BEST…WRITE while feeling confident you are delivering to your clients eye-popping, custom-designed, ATS-friendly documents that will get them extraordinary results.

Successful Employment Industry Professionals Have Been Using Distinctive Resume Templates To Create Resumes That Are Getting Rave Reviews From Their Clients While Earning Back Their Investment Over and Over and Over!

Bob Janitz

I love Michelle’s resume templates! The designs are eye-catching and easy to use. I highly recommend these templates for anyone who finds that designing a creative, contemporary formatted resume is a challenge. They’re a huge time-saver.

Insiders

Appearances matter, even with the written word, and how a document looks can make an immediate impact on the decision to read it or toss it aside. I train and mentor many excellent resume writers who have mastered the art of crafting highly effective resume content, but who lack the basic MS Word skills to create eye-catching, ATS compatible and uniquely branded documents. Distinctive Templates are the perfect solution for easily transforming well-written content into works of art that capture attention, generate interest, and motivate the recipient to read every word.

Phil Hurd

While I primarily write resumes from scratch for each of my clients, I have also used Michelle’s templates and received great feedback. I find the templates are especially helpful to organize my thinking for those clients who have an overabundance of important information that still must fit in an ATS-friendly, 2-page format without looking cluttered or disorganized.

amber fernandez

I used the “Pivot” template to create a combination functional/chronological resume for my first big client. Her words when she saw the finished product: “THIS IS AMAZING!” I’m a writer, not a designer. My resumes aren’t unprofessional, but they needed a “wow” factor – and now they have it. Thank you, Michelle, for offering such affordably priced tools!

Do you work in a profession that involves writing resumes for job hunters or helping job hunters rewrite their resumes? If so, YES!

Let’s talk numbers.

If you use our templates to create resumes, they can easily save you one hour per resume, and often MUCH, MUCH more. Let’s say you use them for just two clients per week, eight per month. That is 8 hours of time savings.

Plus: with the competitive edge you will gain from the templates, you will be able to easily raise your prices. Let’s say you raise your fees just $50 per resume. That means, you only need to sell one resume per month, to earn your money back and start earning a profit too!

Or, maybe you use our templates to begin offering services that you have never offered before. For example, executive biographies or infographic profiles. With a minimal charge of even (and this is really low…you could charge much more) $350 per document…the sky is the limit!

You will get lifetime access to all the materials provided to you during your membership. You will be able to use these templates with your own clients indefinitely. However, if you fail to renew your membership, your online access will be revoked. That is why we encourage you to download the templates you wish to use directly to your computer when you join, and then make a reminder on your calendar to log in once per month and download the newest templates.

Note: If you have purchased multiple seats for multiple writers in your organization, your ORGANIZATION owns the lifetime rights, not the individual writers. Your writers may not use the templates for any of their personal clients. They may only use them for clients of your organization. If the writers granted membership no longer work for your organization, you may reassign the membership or contact us to cancel the seat.

Yes, your subscription will automatically renew every month or every year from the time you signed up, depending on the option you choose, to avoid interruptions with your service. You don’t have to worry about signing back up again or losing access to any of your downloads as long as your membership stays active.

If the renewal charge fails or if your credit card needs to be updated, you will receive an email and will have a short grace period to update your payment before your account is closed.

Oh! We love and appreciate you so much for that.

Here’s the scoop. We have the price for this program set to be affordable, plus we include special bonuses, so although we’ve thought about this, we’d have to increase our prices to cover the additional support.

Our promise is that you’ll love this program so much and save so much money since you won’t have to buy our templates separately, that that old expense will be a tiny portion of your overall savings.

No problem. While we hope you will LOVE our program and stay with us, YOU are in control of your account. Simply login to your billing account and cancel your subscription at any time.

Unfortunately, we cannot give refunds on this program because you get instant access to hundreds of dollars of templates that you can download and use immediately, therefore your purchase in non-refundable.

Yes. These are Microsoft Word templates. Many people already have this application, but if you don’t I’ll tell you how to get it for approximately $9/month. Microsoft Word is a necessary application for all job seekers, as many recruiters and employers require that your resume be submitted in this format.

I’ve seen other resume templates and virtually all of them are NOT ATS compatible. This is a major reason I was finally convinced to make these templates available. ATS compatibility is a necessity for almost every job search. As you probably know, if your resume is not compatible, it may be rejected from the ATS and you’ll never even know it (except that you never get a call!). I

This is why I have done everything in my power to ensure my Distinctive Resume Templates are ATS “friendly.” There may be a few exceptions, but I will make sure you know about it if there is. There are many different types of applicant tracking systems and it is impossible to ensure compatibility with every single one of them. However, my templates are mostly ATS-friendly and will work well for you in most cases.

Insider members are invited to ask all the questions you want about this in the private Facebook group and I will answer you personally, to the best of my ability.

Absolutely! In fact, I include some videos along with the templates to show you how to easily change colors or fonts or add or remove sections as you need them. You are also encouraged to ask me in the private Facebook group if you need support figuring out how to customize something.

Due to the digital nature of these templates, there are no refunds. All sales are final. We are here to help. If you have any issues after your purchase, please email us at services@distinctivecareerservices.com

What Can You Do with the Templates You Have Purchased from Us?

You can customize and change the design and/or content as you wish.

If you are a resume writer or career coach, or create resumes for clients in another capacity, you may use the templates with your clients on an individual basis.

What Can NOT be Done with the Templates You Have Purchased from Us?

Except on an individual basis for your own personal resume, you can not use the templates or images of the templates or resumes created using the templates on your website or blog, newsletters or emails, live or recorded trainings, or membership sites.
