Who Should ~ and Should Not ~ Read These Articles and Why


If you just want to know what to do to get unstuck in your career and don’t like dogs or a little bit of fun then you do not want to read these articles.

But if you want to know why, get tips that are easy to understand and apply and enjoy effervescent witticism (i.e. light sarcasm) then boy have you come to the right place!

Want to know a secret – I hate writing about myself.  It’s that whole bragging thing … and the ‘not sure what to say thing’ mixed with a few dashes of the ‘I don’t want to sound stupid’ thing.

Sound or feel familiar?  It is how most people feel about writing their resume, LinkedIn, interviewing, networking or job searching.  I get it. I really, really get it.

There are a lot of places you can go online to get advice, type in “how to write a resume” into Google and get nearly 82 MILLION hits in less than a second.  Holy cow!  But what I found is that there is a lot of confusion or contradiction in many of those sources.  One page, no two, Chronological, no Functional and the list goes on.

But what is worse – at least for me – was there was not a lot of why.  I’m a why kind of person.  I do not like to know what to do, I like to know what to do and why.  And I like to have the why explained in an easy to understand way that I can relate it to me personally or at least understand the concept so I can be better at applying it.

And that, my friends, is why I am here.

The whole purpose of this site is to help explain some of the how, what and why of resumes, LinkedIn, networking, interviewing – the whole job search shebang (and sometimes just getting off the fence to do something) in an easy to relate to way. In short – I want to help explain it so you can easily do it.

Here’s the catch: when I write my articles, I am basically sitting down and having a conversation with you.  You will find in my conversations, I relate to dogs, wine, funny situations and looking at life in a positive way with a touch of sarcasm. I poke fun of myself, my son, my family and my dogs, am high energy and am apologetically optimistic.

And if I didn’t have you at sarcasm, easy to understand, dogs or fun to read, here is another reason you might want to read the articles: this is what I do and I love it.  I am an Executive Resume Writer, Brand Strategist & Career Coach who founded Career Polish, Inc. in 2009 to help people free themselves in their jobs to dive into the career they want.

Since then, I have worked with thousands of people from all industries, walks of life and rungs on the ladder create their own personal brand, sell it across all communication and happily move forward.  I love all the transformation that goes with the process.  When not speaking or facilitating workshops I enjoy writing these articles to help get my mantra out to as many people as I can: you are not your title!

If you would like to know more about the work I do and what it is like working together, please pop over to our website: CareerPolish.com or to find out more about me, check out my LinkedIn profile: Lisa’s LinkedIn Profile
