HI, I'M STEFANIE
MORE ABOUT ME
more than just a pretty resume
Oy! It’s so hard to write about yourself! But, you know that. That’s why you’re here.
Let me try to introduce myself so you don’t think I’m some fictional character hiding behind a website.
First, I’m a wife and mom. I grew up in the Midwest and met my husband here in Buckeye country.
We have two daughters who are 5 and 7 who keep up on our toes.
We have a Labradoodle named Josie, and we like to spend our weekends exploring new places.
Recently, I joined a fitness cult. It’s called Peloton, and I can’t get out. If you have suggestions about how to escape, please email me. I’m part of the RKSolid and BodyParty teams. IYKYK
Believe it or not, I built this company in the bathtub. After I had my second child, I escaped to my happy place at night by taking hot baths. I would listen to the Smart Passive Income podcast and think of ways to build my side hustle.
Each episode inspired me to keep writing blog posts, creating services to help job seekers, and tinkering with this website until I die.
Some people are great at baking. Some people are great at giving hugs. I’m great at finding and getting better jobs. And I love helping other people do it too. So in 2017, I turned my career growth obsession into this side hustle.
Thanks for reading this far; keep scrolling for more tidbits about yours truly.

STARTED FROM THE BOTTOM
How I climbed the ladder with no help
When I started my career in the early 2000s, I wrote one resume and used it to apply for one job.
Right away, I got an interview. Then quickly after that, I got a job offer. It took only six weeks from the day I graduated from college to the day I started my first professional job.
I thought writing a resume and finding a job was a breeze!
I spent four years in that job before I decided to take my career in a new direction. I went back to school and got a Master’s degree in Marketing…then I hit the job market again.
This time was much different. I submitted resume after resume and heard nothing from recruiters. So, I worked hard to figure out why.
After lots of trial and error, I figured out the right combination of information to put on my resume so that I got called for an interview almost every time I submitted my resume. It was awesome!
Once my friends and family caught wind of how many interviews I was going on, they asked me to review (or rewrite) their resume. And then their networks started asking me…and then I started Resume Revivalist.
I started Resume Revivalist to help job seekers shorten the time it takes between wanting a new job and accepting an offer.
HOW I'M DIFFERENT
Not your average resume writer
Many resume writers left corporate America to write resumes for job seekers. So, they stopped being on the front lines of hiring. By day I read hundreds of resumes every time I’m hiring for a position on my team. I know a lot because I see a lot.
Trial & Error
I’ve put my own skin in the game to move up the corporate ladder for 10+ years. And I’ve done it without a single referral or network connection. My secret? Perfecting my resume and cover letter writing by putting myself in the hiring manager’s shoes.
No Copy & Paste
Resume writing factories that offer cheap services to job seekers often copy and paste resume content from one person to the next. I don’t do that. Ever.
Getting results for job seekers
Why I stopped sharing resume samples
When I first started writing resumes for clients, I often got asked to share sample resumes. Some clients just wanted to know what their resume would look like, and others just wanted to rip off my resume structure and writing style. After a few years of watching prospective clients take my ideas and make them their own, I decided to stop offering resume samples. When you hire me to write your resume, you get all of my expertise and full attention so that I can write about you. Because of that, you get a one-of-a-kind resume that you can feel confident in taking out into the job market. If you’re worried about how your resume will turn out, I offer a money-back guarantee so there’s nothing to lose and everything to gain!
