I founded Reed Résumés in 2014 after spending many years as a New York City-based recruiter.
As a recruiter and résumé writer, I have viewed hundreds of thousands of résumés. Unfortunately, very few are absolutely flawless and the vast majority are stunningly underwhelming. They typically under-sell the applicant.
Most résumé writers (and there are lots of excellent ones out there) are fantastic writers but they do not have recruiting experience.
I am a talented and highly-qualified writer. Equally as important, I also understand the psychology of recruiting and how a résumé is consumed.
Additionally, I have been awarded the Certified Professional Résumé Writer credential by the Professional Association of Résumé Writers & Career Coaches and am also a two-time winner of their Elite Circle Résumé Contest.
My experience includes presentations and workshops at Suffolk County Community College-Riverhead, North Babylon HS, Sayville HS, Locust Valley HS, Girl Scouts of Suffolk County, Smithtown Library, Patchogue-Medford Library, Hauppauge Library, South Country Library, and NYC non-profit organization Grace Institute.
I reside in Smithtown, Long Island with my wife Lisa, daughter Charlotte, son Anthony, and French Bulldog Rosie. Active in the community, I currently coach an 8-10 girls softball team in the St. James-Smithtown Little League and previously served on the Smithtown Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors, leading their Young Professionals group.
