En Route: A Career Blog

Darlene Z.

ResumeEdge Managing Editor, SME

Darlene joined ResumeEdge in 2001 as its Managing Editor. Having authored several thousand resumes at that point and with the CPRW (Certified Professional Resume Writer) designation, Darlene was charged with full oversight of the business, which included recruiting, hiring and directing its resume writers, developing style guides, templates, and determining protocol. Within six months of hire, she had 15 writers to serve an ever-increasing clientele and assisted upper management in growing the business. This included serving as the company spokesperson at the Wall Street Journal Diversity Career Fairs and radio/print interviews. Today, ResumeEdge has 50+ writers who have authored tens of thousands of resumes for our clients. She maintains a 98% client satisfaction rating at ResumeEdge, writes a popular weekly resume blog, and answers resume/job hunting questions on LinkedIn daily.

Prior to joining ResumeEdge, Darlene was a resume writer at a major relocation firm in the Midwest and was the editor of an award-winning Midwestern newspaper.

A Resume Tip from Darlene Z

Modern resumes are accomplishment focused, not task focused. You must convey to hiring managers how you will make their companies succeed.
