How I help
I design career portfolios for capable professionals who need to do the work they love. I help them nail down their career stories, then develop materials that communicate it to employers. I also coach them through how to use the materials effectively, including how to slightly modify them to suit various roles they may be pursuing. I also help entrepreneurs communicate their value with marketing sheets and related materials useful for clients and presentations.

Here's what Jeff Young, "the LinkedIn Guru," has to say about me: "Managing your career is hard work and many of us need a little help doing it. If you are looking for someone who can help you maximize the value of your job search, you need look no further than Ruth Sternberg! I have known Ruth for over two years now, but and I have been impressed with her Career Development skills from the very beginning. She knows how to help you get your career on the right track and keep it there by making sure you show the value that you bring in an interview, a resume and on LinkedIn."

"After meeting with Ruth in person, I noticed how sincere and genuine of a person she was in wanting to help me discover all that I have accomplished throughout my career, both professionally and academically, and to then to put those skills and talents that I have acquired to paper, so that I would stand out to any organization I applied to. I was pleasantly surprised with how many callbacks I received from my resume alone. I ended up accepting a job at a veterinary hospital, and I know that I would not have even been granted an interview had it not been for Ruth’s guidance on editing my resume. I also strongly believe that Ruth indirectly helped me nailed my interview because I felt so confident in myself after working with Ruth, after I was able to take a step back and look at my resume and see just how accomplished of a person I was. " - L. Weissler

And one more, from T. Goehring:

"I found and connected with Ruth on LinkedIn after an expensive and frustrated failed attempt with TopResume. Working with Ruth was a breath of fresh air. She's as passionate about helping you find your next best opportunity as you are yourself! Chatting with her about my experience was like talking to a best friend, eager to cheer you on and see you succeed. I received feedback specifically about my resume from hiring managers, noting it was unique compared to what many others were submitting."
