Meet Irene Marshall

My name is Irene Marshall, and if you are looking to land a new job or start a new career, you’re in the right place!

When you work with me, you are guaranteed a personalized experience that will jumpstart your career search. I know how to create professional career documents that work, giving my clients the edge they need to find jobs faster than they ever expected. As I’ve worked on both sides of the table as an interviewer AND recruiter, I know exactly what employers are looking for on a resume.

No two resumes are the same, so I don’t believe in using templates. Instead, I start by really listening to who you are, your experience, and what you need from your resume. Over the course of my career, I’ve helped thousands of people regain confidence in themselves and land the job of their dreams. Let me help you find yours!

About Me

I had a very eclectic career until the age of 50. Throughout my life, I worked in a variety of different industries, with a career spanning accounting, finance, sales, marketing, business development, small business consulting, and running two family business. I was very successful, but it just never “felt right.” I never felt like I was doing what I was meant to do. It was like everything I had done so far in my life was preparing me for my real work.

When Robert Half hired me as a recruiter in 1999, everything started to click. As a recruiter, it was my job to help fill positions at companies across the country. The very first time I received a job offer for someone who accepted it — Voila, that was it! I suddenly understood what my real work was! Since then, I have never looked back. Helping people get jobs and build their careers is my way of making a difference in people’s lives.

How I Can Help

Since 2003, I have written over 3,000 resumes and other career documents, and have reviewed thousands more. I also discovered that I had a real talent for career coaching. Not all resume writers coach and not all coaches write, but with my deep understanding of the hiring process, I excel at both.

My time as a recruiter taught me what employers are looking for when they are hiring. I have a laser-like focus on what employers want to see in resumes, interviews, and follow-ups. When combined with my wide experience and career coach credentials, I can help put you on the fast path to success!
