Tracy Parish

Tracy Parish is not just your typical Nationally Published Certified Professional Résumé Writer and Conference Speaker – she’s “built a better mousetrap” (so to speak) that helps her clients catch better-paying jobs! She’s doing things on résumés that nobody else on the planet is doing and her clients are getting 90% response rates – even in our current tough economy!

In her exclusive service, she works with only a limited number of clients each month, and so far has served clients around the globe (in all 50 states as well as 53 countries across 6 continents!) She is a top-notch international résumé writing and career development expert who specializes in designing trend-setting résumés, career materials, and job search approaches that you won’t find anywhere else in the world!


To top it all off, Tracy also helps clients learn how to make all ends meet from home with a solid, risk-free, no investment “Plan B” option that won’t interfere with her clients’ lives, day-jobs or dream jobs. Today it seems every job is temporary. So learning how to best diversify with a “Plan B” lifeline is critical in this volatile economy.

As owner of CareerPlan, Inc. and TrendSettingResumes.com, Tracy’s résumés and cover letters have captured a national audience in best-selling career books published by top industry authors including Martin Yate, Wendy Enelow, Louise Kursmark, and Jay Block. Many of her articles and contributions have been featured on top industry career sites such as Monster, Yahoo, CareerBuilder, and America Online (just to name a few) and they’ve also been picked up and published in high-ranking syndicated newspapers nationwide.

Tracy has served as a convention speaker at several national conventions including the NATIONAL RÉSUMÉ WRITERS ASSOCIATION (NRWA) and CAREER DIRECTORS INTERNATIONAL (CDI) as well as numerous universities, colleges, corporations, and professional associations regarding timely career topics and jaw-dropping résumé designs.” In addition, she co-founded, pioneered, and launched the very first college-level “school” for Resume Writers that successfully trained and prepared writers for certification with NRWA, PARW, CDI, and (at the time) CMI, setting a whole new standard for excellence in the industry.

Tracy’s creative résumé styles, top-notch writing skills, and innovative approaches help her stand out as one of the best (world-wide) in the industry, and she holds rare endorsements by top leaders in the career field. She is passionate about raising the bar in the industry and providing her clients with a résumé that masterfully showcases their unique value and personal brand.

Tracy’s Goal:
“When you send your résumé out and it lands in the stack with 99 others and they’ve screened through the entire stack… I want those corporate decision-makers to come down to 2 choices: You… and everybody else! Your résumé should set the standard. When it’s all said and done, they should end up comparing all the other resumes in that stack to yours! There’s always one résumé in the stack that sets the standard, so it might as well be yours!”
