ALL ABOUT RESUMES SINCE 2009

Our Owner and Founder, Mir Garvy, began writing resumes in 2009. Rather than expanding into limitless markets, Mir has kept her company’s growth to markets she knows well and frequents regularly. Today, Mir directs a team of expert resume writers who have each been personally mentored in Mir’s specific style and methodology of resume writing. Our designs are progressive, our messaging is tailored, and our writing is clean. Next to the competition, our resumes are better, more effective, and give our clients a distinct competitive edge.
