Résumé Writing For Rapid Results
See what some of my clients have to say about our work together.
“I was recommended to Cathy Lanzalaco by a friend after I mentioned I wanted to update my resume, and position myself to begin a job search. Cathy and I met together and worked through my extensive work history, and came up with a resume and cover letter that showcased the highlights of my career while conveying my personality and passion for my work. She was a pleasure to work with and a real professional. I will recommend her to my friends now!”
— Andrew Schneider
Cathy Lanzalaco is extremely talented in what she does. I would recommend her any time to any professional. She was on time and informative during the entire process. She communicated with me and asked pertinent questions to produce a great resume. All I can say is Wow! I sent my resume to a recruiter after Cathy had completed it, the recruiter looked over my resume he stated that this is by far the best resume he’s ever seen. I have called Cathy on multiple occasions, asking for advise and she has always been very supportive with my goals and objectives that I’m trying to obtain. I feel like I have known Cathy for years and can talk to her about anything. Do yourself a favor and contact Cathy for any executive career coaching needs and/or professional resume, cover letter that you might have.

Cathy is very professional. We had a wonderful session together. She reformatted my resume into a very professional looking one. Every one that I have shown it to was very impressed by it. She also helped me make my LinkedIn profile very professional looking, and how to maneuver my way around it. I am very happy with the session that we had, and would recommend her to anyone looking to advance in their career and needing assistance with resume, cover letter, and professional reference preparation. Thank you, Cathy, for a day well spent.
