About The Job Search Advisor

Marcia Hancock, The Job Search Advisor. Resume & Biography help in the Bay Area.

Marcia Hancock

My commitment is to help people discover the means they need to change their lives. My belief is that a resume, CV and/or a biography are tools, and creating these tools are the first steps toward making that change happen. Creating a resume, CV or a biography can be a life altering and career changing experience! And give you the confidence to move forward. That is why I do what I do.

I bring to my commitment a background that includes:

  • Piloting four (4) successful Career Transitions from musician to healthcare practitioner, to Equestrian to Human Resources/ Recruiter to self-employed. Moving from one job, career, field and/or industry to another can be the most intimidating for a client. Making the decision is the first step in what can be a very fulfilling and rewarding process.
  • My clients are from all walks of life, jobs, careers and professions, yet they share a desire and a need to move forward. My clients are smart, talented people who are at a crossroads in their work lives. My role depends on the needs and expectations of each individual client: creating a new resume or a quick brush-up to an existing one. Or an introspective journey into where they have been and what new direction they want to go! What I offer is my ability to recognize undiscovered accomplishments, translate achievements as filling a need, helping clients find new direction, gain new drive and discover true value!
  • Sixteen (16) plus years ‘in-house’ Recruitment experience: My clients benefit from my experience ‘on the other side’ of hiring having sourced, screened, interviewed and selected candidates for a divergence of professions and job levels:
    – Students and Interns
    – Engineers & Research Scientists
    – Healthcare Clinical and non-Clinical
    – Accounting and Finance
    – Sales and Marketing
    – Administrative & Executive Assistants
    – Equestrians
  • Multiple Industry Recruiting experience includes Biotech and Medical Device, Manufacturing, e-Commerce, High-Tech, Insurance, Retail, Non-Profits, and the Horse Industry.
  • Self-Employed and Private Practice experience providing resume writing services, CV and biography writing and job search strategy advice based on personal knowledge of the challenges faced by anyone with the desire to change their work lives, careers and professions!
