"Using Rachel's resume service is the best decision I made during my job search! She took my experience and was able to reflect my actual work ethic on paper in a way that I have never been able to, and did so quickly and thoroughly.

The back and forth review and collaboration process was easy and effective. I am so confident in my new resume and am looking forward to continuing to add to it with future experience using Rachel's methods."

"It was such a pleasure working with Rachel who has great insider knowledge due to her background in Human Resources. Her focus is to "humanize" your resume allowing it to not only speak of your professional experience, education, and keys but your personality as well. 


At Career Cultivation, that process begins with a 2 hour phone call to discuss your experience along with questions so they can showcase your BEST accomplishments. I would highly recommend her and enjoyed working with her! Thank you Rachel!"  


"In these crazy times of required personal reinventions, I found myself applying to jobs for the first time in 20 years. Creating a resume which highlighted years productivity and experience was a daunting task. I was not getting any interviews.


Rachel came highly recommended to me. Best recommendation ever!  She captured the important elements of my experience and eloquently placed them to paper- I was even impressed with myself! She also guided me with self-promotion on social media. Every outcome of our collaboration was amazing.  Rachel’s expertise was  valuable throughout this process and she selflessly shares her experience and kindness throughout. Best recommendation and best decision made to engage Rachel’s services to guide me through this Covid professional apocalypse."

"Due to Covid-19, I was furloughed and eventually laid off from my company after 24 years in the travel industry.  This unfortunate situation required that I pivot and seek employment in alternate industries/sectors that I was not familiar with.  I updated my resume to the best of my ability, but after completing 40 or so online applications and either receiving a rejection e-mail, or receiving no response at all, I knew it was time to engage a professional. I was fortunate to have worked with Rachel at my previous company and I contacted Rachel to schedule an appointment-- it was the best decision that I made! 


Rachel’s process is fantastic. She knows the questions to ask you to get to the core of your accomplishments and translate them into meaningful skills/attributes that a recruiter would want to see.  I submitted my new resume, was scheduled for an interview the following week, and ultimately landed the job!  I would highly recommend Rachel’s services; she knows what recruiters are seeking and will help you create that critical first impression with your resume!"

"My experience working with Rachel was enriching and the value of working with an expert like Rachel goes beyond the obvious writing and editing. The way Rachel had me dig deeper into my key accomplishments and work experiences helped me clearly see the value of my experience and how I can contribute in my next career move. The time that Rachel took to review my experience felt like a safe exercise that prepared me for an interview. The value of this exercise well exceeds the cost."

Rob Teran

"Working with Rachel was a great experience.  I wanted to change the direction my career was going in as well as making it current to today’s trends.  That meant my resume had to be totally redone.  Rachel took the time to talk with me about where I wanted to go and asked questions pertinent to get her the information she needed to create a great resume.  Her background in HR also helped in that she knew what employers were looking for in a resume."

Linda B

"Due to COVID-19, I was suddenly placed into the urgent position of having to recalibrate myself toward new employment horizons.  I needed to give my resume a complete makeover to better brand myself and my experiences to highlight transferable skills to a totally different field.


Rachel was on top of every facet of the process.  I appreciated her focus on crafting a message that put me in a good light and a work product that I feel very confident in. We had a lengthy conversation about my goals and work history, and I found her ability to be a delicate wordsmith quite refreshing, all the while taking the time to listen to my input as well.  A kind and down-to-earth person, she is a real pleasure to work with.  I would recommend utilizing Rachel for any resume writing or career counseling services-- I know she will always be my go-to individual from this point forward."

"With so many of us reinventing ourselves in the current climate I was considering a resume writer.

A colleague provided me Rachel Horan's information and from our first communication I knew I made the correct choice.

Her professionalism, enthusiasm and knowledge is stellar.  A true ROCK STAR!  I highly recommend."

"I could not have survived my job search without Rachel. Her insider knowledge is invaluable. She is professional, kind and thorough.  Rachel is the best!"  

Melinda Easley
"One of the most stressful pieces of considering a career change after 20 years is figuring out how to pull together the history of your experience to tell your story.  
Rachel was the stress-reliever I needed!  She listened, asked insightful questions so she could really know and understand me and what was important to me, and tpulled all of that information together into a resume that I feel great about.  She guided me on to make my LinkedIn profile more reflective of my accomplishments and who I am.   
Rachel’s work and counsel have me ready to push the “apply” button with confidence!"
