I'm Gayle Howard. Business owner and chief writer of Top Margin Executive Resumes—and trainer of professional writers and job seekers.
I started my business, Top Margin, in 1990. Wow. 1990! Back then, the first known World Wide Web page had just been written, Australia’s total population had not quite reached 17 million, the average annual salary was $27,227, and the unemployment rate was 5.8%.
Twenty-eight years is just a blip in the grand scheme of time, but in job seeking terms, it's an eternity.
And in those years, Top Margin has grown to become one of the busiest and most respected career marketing and personal branding consultancies in Australia. I have been fortunate in many ways—winning 30 TORI awards from 54 nominations, and second place award in the World’s Best Resume Competition. I've written more than 15,000 resumes for clients worldwide, and my resumes are published in 24 international resume writing and career advice books.
My personal profile has also steadily grown across the resume-writing community. Training and examinations have cemented my reputation as a leader through international credentials such as Certified Master Resume Writer, Reach Certified Personal Branding Strategist, Certified G3 Coach, Certified Tough Transitions Coach, Certified Credentialed Career Manager, Master Career Director, Certified IT Resume Specialist, and Certified Online Networking Strategist.
For almost 30 years, I've watched the career marketing industry grow more sophisticated as traditional lists of duties, dates and job titles have made way for personal marketing and branding strategies enriched through power wording and high-impact strategic formatting crucial for capturing the attention of today’s business-savvy decision makers.
Today, social media rules everything from reputation management through to the way we communicate electronically and, as a result, the opportunities to sell an individual's talents and experience are virtually limitless.
I'm proud to be the service of choice for the best and brightest people who share my passion for planning and sustaining a fulfilling career, and I'm passionate about showcasing people's talents in ways they've never dreamed possible.
