Resume Writing


Thank you for all of the hard work that you put-in to develop my resume and cover letter. I really appreciate your advice and expertise regarding these matters. I admire your work ethic, drive, expertise, professionalism and quest to continually improve your skills/marketability as a resume writer and career coach.


J.M., environmental consultant

Thanks SO MUCH for all your efforts. I believe you have brought my resume and cover letter to true perfection status.

P.V., v.p. product management

Sherry, you've helped me make a seamless transition from college to the career I've dreamed about since third grade! I can't thank you enough for listening so carefully and helping me organize my thoughts to write a compelling personal statement for a post-graduate position with a professional theatre company. I've just accepted a fellowship to the prestigious Westport Country Playhouse!

A.C., freelance designer

Just had an interview with the UK company and he gave me-- no, really you -- a compliment. He's worked in HR all his life and said if more candidates would submit a resume and cover letter like mine, his job would be much easier. 

C.H., international sales manager

It was extremely helpful to step back and read my resume through the lens of a prospective hiring manager. You gave me the tools I need to confidently market myself professionally.

S.K., design professional

Talking to you was a shot in the arm and I look forward to improving my resume and getting results.  You've helped me to see remedies and a way to re-position myself.

K.B., executive assistant

Thanks so much for a job well done. I am very pleased with the final version of my resume and feel confident (and relieved) to be out there networking. Will keep you updated.

L.S., regulatory compliance manager

Your resume got me in the door!

For over a year Sherry selflessly spent her Saturdays volunteering her resume critique services at the 67th Street Branch of New York Public Library. She helped countless people to improve their resumes by making them more effective and appealing to employers. With Sherry's help, many of these patrons landed their desired jobs and came back to tell us about it. Sherry is an expert in her field and passionate supporter for the public good.

M.B., library manager

Thank you so much for your time, your expertise -- and patience! Your focused, thoughtful and thorough efforts in helping me rewrite my resume and craft a compelling cover letter has launched me into a confident job search -- landing me my first full-time job interview in 10 years of raising a family -- and I can't thank you enough. Your expertise was instrumental in my feeling confident, in having a resume that highlighted my strengths and in helping me think through all my professional options. I would say you are the perfect meld of coach, advocate, and mentor. To anyone else I would say: "Run, don't walk, to hire Sherry!"

R.F., writer, editor, researcher for multiple platform audiences

Sherry provides a lot of useful information and is always willing to lend a helping hand. She assists job-seekers with enhancing their resumes while allowing them to take ownership of the process. This guidance has placed me on a clearer path to finding a job that I'll enjoy while being an asset to the organization.

J.S., human rights advocate

Sherry, a big thank you for all your help! I'm learning that although I may spend hours improving my resume, it still may not communicate what I want it to say about me. With your tips and more practice I hope to get better.

M.M.O., life coach

Sherry is so knowledgeable and has so much great advice to offer. She really knows how to help you think in a different way, especially when dealing with language and ideas for your resume. Thanks Sherry!

W.R., museum programming

Sherry is very diligent, knowledgeable, and dedicated to the success of her clients. Having her rework my resume and cover letter from scratch eased my mind in the struggle to obtain employment.

YW, investment banker

I was struggling to update my resume and hired Sherry to finish the job. To my surprise, I started getting interviews right away and shortly thereafter found a good job in my field.

M.P., IT project manager

Thanks for doing your job so well. I am so grateful and proud of my resume and ready to be a part of the Gig economy.

J.C., management consultant

I guess I thought my resume was pretty together. Unfortunately, or I guess fortunately, after your comments about its lack of focus, I went back and looked at it without the rose-colored glasses, and realized that you were right.

S.L., loan administrator

When my position was eliminated last summer because of the pandemic, my friends helped me get my resume in shape. After nearly a year when I still hadn't gotten a job -- I am 67 -- a friend said I should get professional help and recommended Sherry Natkow. After one session with Sherry I had a significantly rewritten resume. I followed a model she gave me to create a lean, contemporary resume that I felt confident sending it out. Within two months I had my dream job. I am grateful I found Sherry, who is knowledgeable and caring. I highly recommend her services.

R.B., M.A,, M.F.A,, writer/editor 

Thank you again for your invaluable expertise. I have spent the last 2 days crafting with the “resume language” and intention you taught me and I’ve seen the light! I think it will present me far more effectively. If I had only met you 3 weeks ago when I first started this process. Brava!
