Melanie Szlucha

Job Search Coach / Resume Writer / Job Interview Coach

In my over 10 years as a hiring manager and 5 years as a recruiter, whenever I looked at a resume or interviewed a candidate, I wondered, "is this a great person, but they're hiding behind a bad resume?" or "I wish I could see what this person is really like when they're not so nervous."

I started my business in 2008 based on that premise, and between my classes, clients, published articles and audio programs, have helped thousands of job seekers learn what employers are looking for, and how they can better fit those needs.

I have taught job searching to students at Duke University, Fairfield University, Women for Hire conferences in 3 cities, multiple professional associations, as well as to numerous job search support groups since 2008. I've been on both sides of the desk and while the technology has changed, the process of evaluating candidates--that person-to-person connection--remains the same.

I have an undergraduate degree in Marketing and an MBA from St. John Fisher College in Rochester, NY. This background gives me an edge in teaching candidates how to market and position themselves on paper and in person.
