Sizzle Sheet providing the career overview of the Resume Writer

My name is Joy Cohen. Welcome!


I am a Subject Matter Expert on the topic of Résumé Writing and work in private practice as a Career & Human Resources Consultant and Employment Counsellor. I deliver personalized coaching, outplacement, and effective job search strategies to empower diverse, socially complex individuals. My work inspires clients to identify the best career options, and to develop self-marketing, interviewing, and negotiation skills to capture the attention of prospective employers. I am the author of a best-selling book: Take Aim: How to Get Noticed and Hired in Tough Times. I am privileged to provide services Canada-wide, to job seekers, and to companies, primarily in Alberta’s oil and gas sector, and across the US, UK and UAE.

I love my work because it decreases stressors, promotes life-long psychosocial wellbeing, empowers people to overcome barriers to employment and self-sufficiency.
