A Focused, Nuanced Approach

Resume Strategists provides results-oriented career guidance and career communications tools to clients across varied industries, job functions and levels of experience. We engage each client in detailed conversation and take the time to really listen, which then helps us create strong materials. Applying this nuanced strategy, we synthesize career experience into highly effective resumes, cover letters and LinkedIn profiles that articulate a client’s true and full value. With a unique and highly personalized approach, Resume Strategists helps clients enhance their professional image and make powerful first impressions on prospective employers.

The Resume Strategists Team

The company was founded by Alyssa Gelbard, a leading career consultant and personal branding expert. She directs a growing team of skilled career strategists with backgrounds in strategic marketing and communications, career counseling, academic advising, recruiting, coaching and corporate training and development. Members of the Resume Strategists team are also experienced in hiring, interviewing and developing staff, as well as in public speaking. The team is committed to helping clients navigate the next steps in their careers through highly personalized, professional and confidential service.

About the Founder

Alyssa Gelbard has been enabling clients to confidently market themselves in an increasingly competitive job environment for 14 years.

Before launching Resume Strategists, Alyssa had a multi-faceted career in strategic marketing, branding and communications and held senior positions in the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors. In each of these roles, Alyssa hired many staff and therefore understands exactly what employers desire in potential candidates throughout all stages of the recruiting/hiring process.

Alyssa’s interest in helping people achieve their professional goals occurs in other arenas as well. She is a recurring featured speaker on career development (resumes, interviewing and communications skills) at NYU’s Center for Career Development and has been an alumni interviewer for prospective students for almost 20 years as part of the Tufts University Admissions Program. Alyssa has also been a mentor and speaker at the non-profit Dress for Success, providing career and professional development guidance. Alyssa brings an open, engaging, energetic and conversational style, making her a popular speaker in these roles and for other speaking engagements as well.

Staying current on the job market and career development trends is a priority for Alyssa, and as such, she belongs to numerous networks including NY Women in Communications, Ellevate, Tufts University Alumni Admissions Program, Tufts University Career Network, NYU SternConnect, American Marketing Association and the Public Relations Society of America.

Alyssa has an MBA in Marketing from NYU’s Stern School of Business and a BA in Sociology from Tufts University.
