Don’t Rank Me in The 5 Best Resume Services in Salt Lake City, UT
I’m not happy to have been ranked in The 5 Best Resume Services in Salt Lake City, UT. In saying this, I don’t mean I don’t wish to serve my community or the executive job seekers in it in the best way possible.
Fake Find My Profession Reviews Are No Honor
However, I just learned today that I have received the dubious honor of being reviewed in The 5 Best Resume Services in Salt Lake City, UT, by a subpar resume writing competitor who ranks himself the #1 resume writer in 50+ United States geographies. Mike Podesto of Find My Profession is a thorn in the side of a very serious and profoundly dedicated resume writing industry. Mike Podesto at Find My Profession reviews resume writers by region, including Salt Lake City, UT, and routinely places himself first in every category. I don’t know Mr. Podesto, but I am confident he’s not in my region (he’s in the Denver area). I have no idea if he’s a great executive resume writer, but he clearly thinks he is. In any case, ranking oneself first against a pantheon of experts is the height of hubris, and any experienced resume writer can tease apart baseless boasting from profound expertise in an instant. Thus, Mike Podesto reviews resume writers–like Five Strengths Career Transition Experts–because he doesn’t know anything about my work yet isn’t afraid to comment on my professionalism.
If you’ve hired me, you know my dedication to my craft and my clients. I am confident that my expertise and experience serves the hundreds of clients who have hired me in every way. If you and I have not met, let me briefly state that I am a Certified Master Resume Writer, MBA (Boston College), and have worked in editorial management and writing for 28 years. I’ve won #1 and #3 Best Executive Resume Writer in the global TORI Awards (Toast of the Resume Industry, sponsored by Career Directors International), and I currently serve as a judge in this esteemed annual competition. I’ve paid my dues, and I’ve earned my street cred, which means everything in this industry.
Therefore, again, I’m not thrilled to be compared to Find My Profession through Mike Podesto’s reviews in my home market of Salt Lake City, UT—nor, I imagine, would my very fine local colleagues want to be compared to him, either. He’s made an unsavory name for himself by slamming businesses and expert resume writing colleagues he doesn’t know through false rank lists and outright fabrications. In fact, I’ve never seen him at a resume writing industry conference, participated on an industry committee with him, or even exchanged ideas with him informally as I do often with my resume writing colleagues across the United States. Clearly, his chief offering to job seekers is his ability to write articles that uniformly rank his own business #1 in the top 5 resume writers in Salt Lake City, UT, and across the country.
