Resumental is the creative vision of founder Julie Ghatan, who spent years managing the resume-writing department for one of the country’s largest and most well-respected outplacement firms, where she reaped the benefits of over 40 years of extensive research in the employment industry.
In his book, Outliers, author Malcom Gladwell claims the key to achieving world-class expertise in any skill is a matter of practicing the correct way for a total of 10,000 hours. Having written resumes full-time for six years, Julie already had 12,000 hours of resume-writing under her belt by 2012, not to mention all the hours spent writing freelance resumes on the side. To date, she has written over 5,000 resumes since launching her career in 2006.
Julie holds her Certification in Professional Resume Writing (CPRW), and is a member of the National Association of Resume Writers. She also holds a B.A. in Writing.
She has worked extensively with some of the nation’s largest and most recognized corporations, such as PepsiCo, Coca Cola, Nikon, NASA, Marriot Hotels, Walmart, JCPenney, CVS/Caremark, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and Charles Schwab, developing resumes for personnel across every department and at every level of those organizations—from the administrative assistants to the CEOs.
She has also taught resume-writing and personal marketing workshops at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago and SOHO House Chicago.
Resumental delivers those benefits on to our clients at affordable rates. Resumental also fills in the gaps our competition leaves empty; Julie is not geared toward one idea of “professional.” She understands that each individual is unique; that no two people have the same job function and that everyone has something to offer. Julie will work closely with you to better understand what makes you unique, and successfully bring those elements to your resume to secure you an interview, where we know you’ll blow them away.
