About Me

I'm a multi-certified Executive Resume Writer, Coach and Storyteller whose documents help clients to land interviews.

I founded Virginia Franco Resumes years ago when recognizing my years of corporate communications, journalism and social work offered a unique understanding of how people read, communicate and share information. 


I help clients all over the world to tell their stories and test the job search waters – often for the first time in years or after deciding to make a career change.

I've shared my insight as the host of the Resume Storyteller podcast, a member of the Forbes Coaches Council, and in various publications and podcasts – including Job-Hunt, Ivy Exec, HuffPost, Business2Community.com, Career Sidekick, MedReps, Career Cloud, Blue Steps and NotActivelyLooking.com.  


I've served on the Board of the National Resume Writers Association, the only nonprofit organization supporting the resume writing industry, for four years.
