So today we’ll unpack those burning questions with a really amazing guest who knows her stuff. Her name is Andrea Gerson, founder of Resume Scripter.

She then went on to earn her Master's degree in Social Work at NYU while working full-time as a career counselor in the NYC non-profit sector. It was during this time that she founded Resume Scripter, and since then she has created impactful resumes for nearly 7,500 professionals.  Many of her clients have secured competitive roles at top organizations including Microsoft, Google, Facebook, and the United Nations.So let’s geek out about resumes.
