Meet Your Professional
Resume Writer

Hi, I’m Rebecca McCarthy,
a professional resume writer and career branding expert.

This is my mission:

“Helping professionals showcase their passion and potential, and open doors of opportunity throughout their career.”

Why I Do What I Do

A student called me during the summer of 2019 and asked how he could become a professional writer—what should he major in? What college should he go to? How should he start?
Immediately I answered, “Well don’t make the same mistake I made! I thought I would work any day job to make money and then write my masterpiece at night. Know what that led to? Pain. Misery. I never worked on my book and I hated my job. It was years before I finally figured out how to make a change.”

No sooner had I spoken those words that I realized I had stumbled upon my “why.” Today, I help aspiring writers become published authors because I know the pain of carrying a book inside that needs to be written. I help business professionals land their dream job because I’ve seen firsthand how a life can unravel due to a career out of alignment. The wrong job can make you feel disconnected from everything that makes you feel alive.

Today I live and work at home with my husband and two sons, and couldn’t be happier. Not that there aren’t ups and downs—of course there are—but I’m living on my own terms, doing work I’m passionate about, feeling like I’m making a positive contribution to humanity, and enjoying good company along the way.

If you have a life inside you that’s not being lived, NOW is the time to make a change.

My Vision:

I envision a world where every person is working in an environment that brings out their personal best and supports a harmonious life.

A Bit about My Background

My approach to writing, editing, and coaching is based on 20+ years of experience as a professional writer in both the publishing and marketing industries. I’ve published more than 50 books—some selling more than a million copies—with Penguin, Simon & Schuster, and Scholastic. I’ve also worked with licensors such as DreamWorks, Disney, Warner Bros., and Paramount.

I’ve written for Vistage International, the largest CEO membership organization in the world, I’m a Nationally Certified Online Profile Expert through the National Resume Writers Association, and I’m an Authorized DISC Administrator and Behavioral Consultant with ProfilingPro. My clients advance their careers in numerous ways including finding their dream job, landing a promotion, publishing the book they’ve dreamed of writing for years, and more!
