Stand Out and Get a Call Back

Did you know that employers look at resumes for only 6 seconds on average? You have 6 seconds to stand out and get that call back!

At Ama La Vida, we understand that and offer a high touch and personalized service to help you land that dream job. Our experienced resume writers will work with you to understand the most important components of your work experience, what you’re looking to transition to and the specific jobs you’re applying for. They will work with you to make sure you stand out and translate your skills to best speak to the roles you want.

How Does This Work?

We Work With You Until You're Satisfied

We get it! The process of finding the right career can be overwhelming. There is so much competition out there and to get a call back requires you to stand out in just 6 seconds. It can be difficult to put years of experience in only one page. Our resume review specialists will do in-depth research to understand the skills you currently have, the specific role description of the jobs you’re applying for and put together a personalized way to help you stand out.

All of our resume services include:

  • One 20 minute pre-review consult with your resume specialist
  • One 20 minute post-review consult to walk through resume updates
  • Comprehensive resume review with edits from an experienced ALV resume specialist
  • Word document version of your resume to use for online applications as well as an optional stylized PDF for sending directly to recruiters ($100 extra)
  • Unlimited access to our proprietary eCoaching module to help you learn the skills to update and polish your resume for the future

At Ama La Vida, we take a unique approach. Rather than just taking your resume and giving it back to you full of red mark-ups, we also want to help you learn how to get your resume into the best shape possible.  This serves three purposes:

1. You’ll know how to do it for the future (chances are, this isn’t the last job you’ll ever apply for, and you will want to customize your resume for each role)
2. You can use the tips and insights to also update your LinkedIn and other online profiles
3. It ensures that the time our Resume Specialist spends is as valuable as possible – taking your resume not just from “bad” to “good” but rather from “already good” to “rockstar-stand-out-always-gets-noticed”

It is for these reasons that we also provide you with a comprehensive eCoaching module.  Using the new tips and insights you learn in the module, you can update and tailor your resume to future roles.

They said it, not us...


I contacted Ama La Vida through their free consultation. I connected with their CEO Nicole for my consultation and came away thoroughly impressed with the organization. I felt valued as I was also contacted by client relationship manager Randalyn, who also sent me a hand written card :) This really meant a lot to me in an age of impersonal digital contact. I worked with Melanie who completed a rewrite of my resume. Melanie was very thorough and we had multiple phone meetings to discuss my past and future in regards to my resume. Since the rewrite she has also followed many times since. She went above and beyond just a simple rewrite. I want to thank everyone at Ama La Vida as I feel that going the extra mile is standard for their organization.

I worked with Mel - She re-worked my resume and answered all my job search related questions. Well worth the money, I truly felt like they were there every step of the way. It was a very personal experience that I truly appreciated. I never felt like I was "just another client", but rather it was a partnership to help get me to my next step in my career. I will definitely be going back to Ama La Vida if I need any other help moving my career forward.
