Are you experiencing some of these common challenges our clients face?

  • you've been sending out resumes for the type of job you want but are receiving no response.
  • you feel frustrated, confused and losing hope that you’ll ever receive a response.
  • you've already tried what all the gurus say about keywords and formats but your phone still isn't ringing.
  • you've been 'out of the game' for so long that you don't know where to start.
  • you wish you could have a resume that expresses all the great things about you and gets you the job you really want!

If you're nodding your head,
we get it and we completely understand.

You've probably been sitting in front of your screen wondering how and what you're going to write this time that will really make a difference.

It may have been years since you've last done a resume, or this may be your umpteenth time sending out applications.

But you know something is missing and that's why you've ended up on this page. There's got to be a better solution, you're thinking. And you're right.

See, in the last ten years or so, everything changed in the job searching world. Employers and organizations have embraced social media and the internet dominates communication. It's not uncommon to have entire hiring processes done completely virtually.  

As a result, hiring managers have their pick of applicants, sometimes 100's or even 1000's to one opening.

Now, more than ever, it's so difficult to have your resume shine through and be noticed and chosen over so many others.

Not only do your words have to pop off the page, but you do too.  

If your personal brand doesn't shine through then you'll look just like everyone else and that's not going to help a hiring manager or recruiter choose you.

Ok, so what are you supposed to do?


In the 12 years we've been doing this, here's what we found works:

  1. clear, lucid copywriting from someone who knows exactly how to write for a hiring manager or screener to notice you! 
  2. a laser focus on what sets you apart from the competition.
  3. an eye for impactful design and quick, easy to digest content.
  4. a shining brand and personality that exemplifies your key values and how you'd fit into an organization.
  5. relevant and relatable stories that showcase your talents and accomplishments and make your resume and marketing materials irresistible to the reader!

 WHY TRUST US?

  • Branding isn't just a buzzword. You need a team of professionals who know how to leverage your strengths and have a proven track record in design and writing copy to do just that.  
  • You also need to talk things over with a branding professional, to help formulate and market your strengths and accomplishments.  This is not an easy task to do yourself and getting insight from a seasoned copywriter who knows the right questions to ask is essential.  We all have blindspots and uncovering them could turn your situation around.  So without further adieu...

MEET NADIA QASMIEH M.A., 
YOUR BRANDING SPECIALIST


Hi, I’m Nadia, a Harvard-trained confidence-building, career-boosting, image-polishing copywriter.

I’m passionate about helping people see their true potential and assisting them in presenting themselves genuinely yet artfully - especially in writing.

I’ve revamped 100s of personal documents, and helped people from diverse backgrounds express themselves – backgrounds ranging from the arts, finance, marketing, and education, to sustainable development, engineering, and a variety of medical and scientific fields.

I understand how important first impressions are and since a resume, an email, or a statement of purpose may be your method of first contact, I can help you turn your thoughts and ideas into perfectly molded words.

For over 13 years, I’ve been reviewing documents, interviewing clients, and digging deep to find that wow-factor in each.

I will ultimately focus on building your image by developing content that reflects your personal brand and promise.

Now you know my story. Let me help you write yours.

HERE'S WHAT WE OFFER

Nadia will work with you 1-on-1 to revitalize your marketing materials.
We know time is critical in a job search so each service
comes with a 3 business-day turnaround guarantee.

Custom Written Resume

  • We'll start with your existing resume and a sample job description that you provide us with.  
  • Our service starts with a 45 minute 1-on-1 virtual call. Nadia will then rewrite and revamp each section of your resume to provide you a cohesive, professional look which will serve to catch the eye of your target company.

Custom Written Cover Letter

  • This is your chance to connect with an employer and you don't want to miss it.
  • You need to establish your authority and stand out from all the other applicants.  
  • Nadia will get to know you in your initial 45 min virtual call and will ask the right questions so that she can frame you in the best possible way to an employer.

LinkedIn Profile Development

  • Where's the first place an employer will look once they're interested in your application?  That's right, LinkedIn.  
  • Your profile has to shine and not only be congruent to what you've presented in your resume & cover letter but also provide further evidence and proof to an employer that they're not taking a risk by interviewing you.
  • Nadia will provide you with a creative, eye-catching headline to attract the attention of recruiters and hiring managers. She will also craft a powerful summary that will keep them reading on and convince them that you're the one they have been looking for. Nadia will also review your LinkedIn profile and provide you with some practical tips on how to amp it up.

Personal Brand Profile for
Networking

  • This is a bonus, only available in our Premium package and only available at Careers by Design.
  • It's a one-page showcase collateral piece (shown in the top image, right-most document) with an attention-grabbing, professionally-written profile summary of your achievements and successes.  It includes your professional colour photo so that you can easily be remembered. 
  • Leave this with your employer after your perfectly executed interview, or anywhere where you are networking your way to success.

YOUR SUCCESS IS OUR SUCCESS

"When I was interviewed for my current job, the interviewer said: 'Very unique and spicy cover letter!'”

After Nadia updated my resume, I was able to land an interview in a matter of weeks. My resume was accurate and concise. It highlighted my past experiences and accomplishments that related directly to the industry I wanted to work in and the job I was applying for. My resume stood out to HR for me to be selected for a position that is traditionally open for in-house hires only.
 
Nadia also crafted a cover letter to go with my resume. She focused on small details and keywords in my field that made my cover letter sound professional and savvy. When I was interviewed for my current job, the interviewer said: “Very unique and spicy cover letter!”
 
It was not traditional in any way, whether it was the vocabulary used or the overall tone. My past experiences sounded very dynamic. It set me apart and shaped the first interaction with the interviewers before they even met me. In my opinion, they got to know what value I can add to their business. Just to emphasize, the way Nadia formatted the content of my cover letter was something I have never seen in any cover letter writing class or online. The service was also fast and very friendly.
 
As I plan to progress in my career and higher education, I have no doubt that Nadia will play a key part in helping me reach new highs with her vast knowledge of different industries, and her unparalleled experience with self-branding (through my resume, cover letter, and personal statement).

"...allowed me to stand out from other candidates to be called in for interviews very fast.”

I was able to land several interviews after Nadia helped me rewrite my resume. My previous resume was too crammed with a lot of unnecessary information, which I guess made it difficult for recruiters to scan. 

But when Nadia worked on my resume, she highlighted my previous experiences and helped me emphasize my relevant job skills in a simple and effective manner. This allowed me to stand out from other candidates to be called in for interviews very fast.

100% Satisfaction Guarantee

The purpose of a resume is to get you noticed, make you stand out, and, ultimately, help you land an interview. The resume we will provide you with will be keyword-rich with industry terminology and abundant with your most impressive accomplishments. This will allow tracking systems to find it and, in turn, increase your chances of getting an interview. While we cannot guarantee an interview or a job, here's what we can guarantee: 

  1. your new resume will detail accomplishments that highlight your skills and abilities - accomplishments that Nadia will uncover during the interview, ones you didn't even know you had.
  2. your new resume will not only reflect who you are, but who the hiring organization is specifically looking for as well. It will mirror the hiring organization's vision and needs. It will communicate the fact that you are perfect person for the job and increase your chances of getting that call.
  3. you will be fully satisfied with the final version of your new resume and be proud to share it with others. If you are not fully satisfied, Nadia will make the desired changes until you are. You have the chance to ask for unlimited changes for 45 days after receiving your new resume.
