  • Our work has been featured on

  • Looking for work leaving you frustrated and "half-baked?"​

    Here's our hot take...

    Rebuilding your resume should be a simple process.

    Customizing your cover letter shouldn't take more than five minutes.

    Optimizing your LinkedIn profile doesn't require a marketing degree.

    Finding a new job shouldn't take months.

     

    But doing these things on your own can feel impossible when you ...

    Absolutely hate writing

    Haven't looked for work in a decade

    Struggle talking about yourself

    Are confused by conflicting advice

    Have a diverse background

    Are making a complete pivot

  • Finally ... a Stress-free, Straightforward Approach​

    Strategize

    We believe the best work comes thru conversations. Before crafting your story, we’ll get to know you, your goals, and your challenges.

    Streamline

    It's time to think beyond bullets and buzzwords. We’ll demonstrate your value without the fluff and with the targeted clarity that attracts attention.

    Serve it up!

    You’ll have more than tools or words on a page. You’ll have an actionable strategy for connecting with the opportunities you’re craving.

  • Meet Aaron Sheppard, Job Search Strategist & Resume Expert

    Drawing on more than 20 years of experience helping ambitious professionals with their career goals, Aaron Sheppard knows how frustrating it is for a resume to hold you back or to live with the sneaking sense that there are other important puzzle pieces that you are overlooking.

     

    Taking the reins of Cake Resumes was a natural next step for Aaron after training and working closely with the company founder.

     

    “Aaron applies the same commitment to ease and clarity to his process that I built Cake Resumes upon. Choosing him to support you with your career goals means working with an expert! You will side-step confusion and land your next opportunity through smarter actions, period. Hands-on, shouting from the rooftops, Aaron comes with my most enthusiastic recommendation.”

    - Erica Breuer, Cake Resume Founder

  • Our client's taste of success

    Jeremy, K.

    Client Success Manager

    I connected with Aaron when I knew my resume wasn't getting the results I needed. A good resume shouldn't just list your background, it should tell your story and entice the reader to reach out to you.

    Having a properly proofed resume produced immediate results. Returned emails, callbacks, and competing offers became a frequent event - not just a wish.

    I would highly recommend Aaron's services to anyone looking for assistance with resume writing, defining a narrative, or narrowing their focus on specific career elements. His inquisitive nature and realistic approach has helped countless others.

    Wade B.

    Instructional Designer

    I am incredibly grateful for the skillfully crafted professional resume that Aaron wrote for me.

     

    Aside from the high-quality product he delivered, Aaron was a genuine pleasure to work with.

     

    He was friendly and helpful through the process, and the resulting resume gave me the confidence to transition out of the only industry I had ever worked in.

    Rhahlene M.

    Consultant, Project Management Profession

    In the first 2 months of my job search, I only had two initial interviews. After working with Aaron on my resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile I was able to interview much more frequently. In the two months after Aaron’s revitalization of my application materials, I received over 15 initial interview requests.

     

    Aaron’s eye for practical structure and thoughtful approach to meaningful narrative throughout the materials is easily the reason I found myself interviewing for experienced project manager jobs.

     

    I highly recommend Aaron’s services and benefited greatly from them.
