Lynda SpiegelProfessional Resume Writer & Job Search Coach

I am a job search coach and resume writer who has extensively recruited, interviewed and hired  thousands of talented individuals during my 15+ years as a human resources executive.  I founded Rising Star Resumes to leverage this background, which affords me a unique perspective on how recruiters and hiring managers view candidates. I collaborate with clients to help them market the value proposition they represent to employers through networking skills, a keyword-rich resume and LinkedIn profile, interviewing, job search and salary negotiation skills.

My articles on careers and job search strategies have been featured in LinkedIn Pulse, Quora, ReWork and TalentCulture blogs. I am also a member of The Wall Street Journal‘s Experts Panel.
