the story of

Bang! Resumes

The deal

For almost ten years, I’ve been transforming under-performing resumes into eye-catching (dare I say job-getting) CVs. The funny thing is, I never had any intentions of becoming a “resume writer”…

The Beginning

Years ago I re-wrote a friend’s boring CV and helped him land a coveted role. Many happy job hunters later, what started out as a favour is now a business where I help give clients just like you a shot at career success.

The Rest

As the name suggests, Bang! Resume Works specializes in, well…resumes—but that’s not all. From kick-ass covers to brilliant correspondence and more, I make you look good on paper. Or online. Whatever.

the big three

services

testimonials

Throughout the process of re-writing my resume, Joanne brought a fresh perspective to my work narrative, helping me to hone the document into an effective tool, which has since helped me land several hot new writing clients. Thanks a bazillion.

Jesse Corbeil – Writer & Editor

I was really struggling with creating a resume that would grab a potential employers’ attention. Joanne made my resume pop and look much more attractive to potential employers; it helped me land a great job with a wonderful company and I have her to thank for that!

Deborah Calvitto – Administrative professional

Working with Joanne was an absolute pleasure; it made an otherwise stressful process into a fun, easy activity. I love the work Joanne crafted for me, but the greatest part was the experience of telling her my background. Not only did she do a great job of pulling all of the relevant details and skills out of my stories, but she also made me feel so confident and self-assured.

Kasey Dunn – Community Program Coordinator

Looking to advance further up the career ladder, I had Joanne apply her talents to my resume and cover letter and I could not be happier with the result. Adding polish to substance, she greatly enhanced my ability to “sell” myself and my expertise. She possesses a very nuanced understanding of how to present on paper in a way that employers take notice. My resume has received compliments from managers who I have sat with for interviews. Ultimately, I achieved my goal of a better position with greater responsibility thanks in great part to Joanne’s help.

Harold A. Robertson – Project Office Specialist

I’m so thankful for Joanne’s excellent résumé writing skills. She met with me to really get to know my personality and my goals, then crafted a résumé that truly made me sound professional, capable, and in-demand. Her word smithing made my résumé a captivating read and since then, I have had several quality job interviews, including with the company I currently work for, a progressive growing technology corporation. Five stars. Oh, and do yourself and favour and get her to work on your LinkedIn profile as well!

Jenesse E. James – Administrative professional

I consider myself to be pretty good with my words, but cover letters are admittedly my weak spot. Joanne was able to capture how I would like to come across to employers; she really made a point to ask all the right questions in seeking out the details to also make my resume stand out. By far the best resume I’ve ever had.
