Lauren was exceptional at helping me craft and build my resume and cover letter. She paid great attention to detail and was extremely diligent in meeting all of my needs. I would recommend her to any college student or a seasoned professional in need of a stellar resume builder.

Lawrence H.

Investor Relations Analyst

Lauren did a great job working with me on overhauling my resumé and LinkedIn. What I appreciated most was her ability to ask incisive questions that got past the jargon, as well as my own preconceived notions about my own experience, to really dig into and reframe what my skills and job history said about me. She listened, questioned when she wasn’t sure about something, helped me reprioritize, and was easy to work with. She challenged me to think a bit differently about my expertise, but also heard my priorities and brought them into the fore. She also showed me how to keep relevant information updated correctly, and helped me rethink the language I use to talk about myself.

Reuben K.

Director, Office of Innovation and Data Management

As times have changed in the way people navigate the world of professional opportunities it is critical to understand the proper way to approach your resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile. I was not naive to think that I knew how to do this on my own so I researched professionals who could provide assistance and guidance. I came across Lauren and am fortunate to have done so. Perhaps the most refreshing and impressive thing about Lauren's approach to her clients is that she has not forgotten that business is about people and relationships. Before embarking on the task, she got to know me and my aspirations and dug into how best to represent me. I came away from the process with outstanding and relevant materials to promote myself to companies; but more importantly I found a life-long collaborator interested in helping me pursue my career objectives. I cannot recommend Lauren highly enough for this type of work and partnership.

Laurence H.

Business Development Manager

Lauren helped me bring my resume in to the new millennium. While I'd updated my recent jobs over the years, the basic outline was the same and it was getting too long due to my 'append only' approach. Lauren did an awesome job of steering the document back on course, freshening the style and adding pop that honestly really never would have occurred to me. She was extremely professional, timely in her responses and kept me honest on keeping up my end of the bargain. If you need some help getting your resume on track, Lauren is a great resource to have on your team.

I would highly recommend to anyone if you want to take your resume to the next level!

Megan H.

Director of Licensing

Recently I was separated from my company and found myself looking for employment for the first time in 11 years. I updated my resume myself, but was not getting any response. I needed a professional and turned to Lauren from Career Connections NJ to get help. Her rates were very reasonable and the turnaround time was really quick. Within a matter of weeks, I was finally getting responses to my resume, which then led to interviews. I found a new position in only 2 months! I am sure that the changes to my resume and networking advice got me in the door. I truly have to credit Lauren and her amazing work for my becoming gainfully employed so soon again.

Lauren is THE best resume coach/builder that I've ever come across thus far, and she helped several people succeed in their job transition and career transformation. Lauren's fantastic insights and passion to support me made her an amazing mentor and resume builder. I'm very happy I got the chance to work with her — I hope to use her services again shortly.

Anna G.

I highly recommend Lauren's resume and LinkedIn profile writing services, particularly for someone who has worked at the same company and been out of the networking / job hunting scene for a long time. She did a great job of translating many years of experience into a modern resume and profile. I was getting views and interviewing and landed a new role in three months. It was well worth the investment. Thank you again, Lauren.

Ralph F.

Lauren was an absolute pleasure to work with. She took the time to understand the various roles I have held over my career, and articulated them in a very succinct way.

I had the pleasure of connecting with Lauren through my search for an expert on LinkedIn. As a member of the Career Services team at Ithaca College, I was searching for an alumnus to provide a virtual workshop to students on how to craft a competitive profile, and found Lauren's profile through the alumni search on LinkedIn. Lauren was very responsive and open to the idea of providing a 50-minute virtual session, and with her friendliness and energy, was just a pleasure to interact with. Her presentation to our students was dynamic, accessible, approachable, and addressed the key points that graduating seniors and those actively looking for internships can use. Her knowledge and comfort with using LinkedIn was solid, and it was obvious that we were listening to an expert. I cannot recommend Lauren highly enough...not only did I walk away with new information, our students were talking about how much her presentation helped them with their profile and how glad they were that they came. Definitely a winning presentation and presenter!

Kerry S.

Assistant Director for Industry & Community Engagement

I recently worked with Lauren to improve my resume and LinkedIn profile. The process was incredibly easy and the results were fantastic. Lauren was always easy to communicate with and was effectively able to put my ideas on paper. I love my new resume and have had nothing but compliments from the people I have sent it to. Since working with Lauren I have received a lot more job interest and have already been on a couple of interviews.

Lauren always brings her "A" game. Even in her off time, through LinkedIn, she responds to inquiries in minimal time, always in a cheery mood and willing to help.

Kudos to her for setting people at ease at a most hectic time in their lives.

Wally F.

Lauren is professional, approachable, and resourceful. In the short period of time, I felt as if I was working alongside a colleague from work and not someone I hired to aide me with my resume. Lauren has a strong knowledge of what recruiters are in search of for prospective employees. She is very clear with what she can or cannot do for her clients. She's a great person to know and hire. I would definitely recommend her work to others. Best of luck to all job hunters.

Jackie E.

Kindergarten Teacher

Being a seasoned professional, I thought that my resume was very good. That is until Lauren and I sat down at Starbucks. Although my content was there, it was not in the proper format, ie. layout, bullets, type, etc. But most important, it was not a selling tool. It did not jump out my strengths, achievements, etc. Lauren made it into a professional resume. Lauren was sincere, easy to work with and a professional with great skills.

Herb B.

Lauren is extremely knowledgeable and a real professional to work with. She meets deadlines and is accessible to discuss and review matters. To anyone looking for guidance on how best to update a profile, she is an expert and I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

Adam P.

Portfolio Analyst

I met Lauren at the National Council of Jewish Women in Livingston while attending a Linked In Course. I was one of her students. While I had some knowledge of Linked In, I wasn’t sure how to truly tackle this necessary job search tool. Because of Lauren’s teaching style, my Linked In Profile came to life quickly and thoroughly and with a style that reflected my professional personality. Attending Lauren’s classes was probably one of the best sessions I’ve had relative to my new job search. This wasn’t a seminar or a discussion with a power point presentation on Linked In. This was a HANDS ON course in which Lauren physically instructs you on how to make your profile dazzle walking you through each step along the way. She is thorough, patient, and portrays true mentoring spirit. This session was seriously crucial for my job search and Lauren made the process both simple and rewarding. Any curriculum would benefit from having Lauren on staff.

Jaimie E.

Lauren Markon, MS is a fantastic Executive Resume Writer as well as expert LinkedIn guru and trainer.

I cannot give anything but praise for Lauren's services throughout the years. When I first entered the workforce several years ago after I finished my Master's degree, as well as entered a period of transition in my career a couple of years ago, I consulted with Lauren for fine tuning my resume as well as discussed career possibilities for myself. She was incredibly thorough, personable, and patient throughout the entire process. I highly recommend Lauren for rookie entrants to the workforce as well as those undergoing career transitions and/or setbacks, as I so have experienced. Thank you very much! 🙂

Lauren is an amazing consultant. I had always thought that in today's knowledge economy more is better. She was very quickly able to edit and refocus my 3 page resume into a just over 1 page resume. She turned it into a document that not only made me want to hire myself, but led to a job within a month. To anyone looking for help with their resume, you couldn't do better than Lauren!

Within ten days time, I went from being unsure how to position my professional experience, to having a well-structured story I am confident represents me very well, and am looking forward to telling. The current approach, style, formatting, and keen editing skills is what has earned Lauren my recommendation. All in all, it was a very efficient and pleasantly consultative engagement.

Lauren prepared a presentation on resume writing , networking and interviewing skills. I found her presentation to be professional, informative and chock full of information especially for people who are not use to navigating the web and who have been out of work for a while. In addition, she is very upbeat and consultative, so most of the attendees felt very comfortable taking her advice. I have been in recruiting for 25 years, and would highly recommend Lauren.
