About Kimberly Ben
I started Top Resume Writing & Career Services during the 2008 recession. My goal was to leverage my background in journalism, advertising, and marketing to help job seekers discover the true value of their knowledge, skills, strengths, and expertise; and create customized, marketable career communications that WOW recruiters, employers, and other key decision makers.
After graduating from the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Arts, I immediately secured a position with The Atlanta Journal Constitution as a Recruitment Advertising Specialist (I even won an award!). My job involved assisting corporate recruiters and hiring managers with planning and developing integrated recruitment ad campaigns. I was also involved in coordinating Georgia’s largest bi-annual job fairs sponsored by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
After eight years with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, I was ready for something new. Taking a serious leap of faith, I left the corporate workforce to work as a freelance copywriter. For the next four years, I worked with Metro Atlanta businesses on brand identity and content marketing strategies.
One day a Canadian-based Executive resume service contacted me on the recommendation of a colleague and the rest is history! I really enjoy working directly with people more – educating and helping them position their marketable skills and expertise to achieve their job search goals. Every day I get to utilize my storytelling, branding, and marketing skills to create powerful, personalized resumes, job search letters, LinkedIn profiles, leadership bios, and other career communications that give my clients the competive edge.
Fast forward to today…
I’ve written hundreds of resumes, job search letters, LinkedIn profiles, and other career communications as a contracted consultant for some of the nation’s top-tier Executive Career Management and outplacement firms. My current certifications:
🢡 Certified Professional Resume Writers (CPRW)
🢡 Academy Certified Resume Writers (ACRW)
🢡 Certified Career Enlightenment LinkedIn Writers (CCELW)
🢡 Job Search Coaching Certificate from the Institute for Life Coach Training
🢡 Nationally Certified Online Profile Expert (NCOPE) **currently pursuing**
I have a clear understanding of current hiring best practices, the most effective job search techniques, personal branding strategies, and keen insight on what it takes to stand out and be noticed in a competitive job market. I’m relentless in my pursuit of continuous education, professional development, and training to stay on top of ever-evolving career and hiring trends.
