The Top Candidate Resume


No question, a stellar resume is an absolute necessity. But in today’s highly competitive environment, it’s just one piece in the puzzle.

Regardless of what you call it—resume, curriculum vitae, abstract or bio—we’ve all had some version of it for our entire professional career. It’s most likely what helped you land your first job and it’s where you still track your professional experiences, timelines and achievements. But it’s never been harder for your resume to stand out in a crowd of experienced candidates than it is today. We can help.

At The Top Candidate, we begin with a personalized consultation to learn more about your professional goals and to co-collaborate a strategic plan of action. We engage you in an in-depth discovery process that mines your experience for resume gold. And then our award-winning, expert resume creative team builds your resume, professionally written and custom-designed to maximize impact and effectiveness in today’s dynamic job market.


Professional LinkedIn Profile


More viewed than your resume and more important than any other social media presence, your LinkedIn profile plays a vital role in your professional success.

Where’s the first place you look to scope out a potential business connection? If you’re like most industry leaders, it’s LinkedIn, and for good reason. More than just housing your resume essentials, LinkedIn is the ideal place to establish professional personality, passion and perspective; it’s also one of the most overlooked and underutilized opportunities for prospective opportunity-seekers.

We’ll strategize, write and design your LinkedIn profile from the ground up, helping you optimize your use of the platform and leveraging its premier professional networking capabilities. From your work experience to getting recommendations and much more, we know the tricks to making LinkedIn work harder and smarter for you.
