Ken Docherty, Owner, Resume Writer, and Experienced Executive Recruiter

“When you partner with me, you benefit from front-end expertise and never have to worry about your resume project being outsourced to anonymous ghost writers with unknown credentials or expertise.

Unlike many of my competitors who use the company owner as nothing more than a figurehead to attract business, you’ll work with me from start to finish. Remember, if the owner of the company isn't actually writing your resume, then who is?"

As the only Certified Master Resume Writer in Canada, experienced executive recruiter, and former employment agency owner, I bring a skillset to your project not readily found in the resume writing industry. I have managed search assignments for top employers in Canada and Europe, including Shell, HSBC, Honeywell, IBM, Teck, Ivanhoe Energy, and Chevron, and have coached job seekers through each phase of the hiring process.

I am skilled at crafting exemplary resumes that impress even the most intransigent of hiring managers and intimately understand the skills and core competencies employers crave. As a behavioural interview specialist, I know how to extract essential information about past employment history and performance - all vital, expert abilities you need to tap if you are to put your best foot forward!

When you partner with me, I will leverage the very same skills and abilities that made me an award-winning recruitment consultant and search agency owner, to analyze your resume, identify the key skills employers crave and develop a strategy to set you on the road to your dream job.
