Why You Need a Strategy Before Writing Your Resume

Many business leaders and others struggle to write a compelling resume, even those who make multimillion-dollar decisions on a daily or weekly basis.

About Anne Marie Segal

After 15 years as an attorney – including an AmLaw 100 firm, private equity/hedge fund, smaller entrepreneurial law firm and solo practice – I shifted gears and became an executive coach, author and resume writer.
