A Better Way Resume


The Career Experts has been an asset to my career transition practice from the very start. ABoldt1The referrals from this website more than pay for the membership fee and Maria has done a great job marketing resume writing and career coaching services online. She continues to innovate to bring more value to the site, which leads to more “click-throughs” to member web sites.

The Internet has become a key component to any effective marketing strategy. The Career Experts is a cost-effective way to augment one’s Internet presence. Even as a somewhat passive user, I still benefit from several referrals each year, and one or two solid clients gained through this site more than pays for the modest cost.

DeCarlo, LauraMaria Hebda’s websites are an institution in the careers industry. She started The Career Experts several years ago with the emphasis on helping career professionals to promote their credible credentials. By credible, I mean that Maria goes to great lengths to screen career professionals and make sure they have earned the credentials they claim. The services provide a ‘safe’ service for job seekers to find a career professional and feel confident they have avoided any scams — something that we at Career Directors International find very important.
