How I help
Kathy Keshemberg has assisted job seekers and career changers successfully achieve their goals for more than three decades. Working virtually (phone & email), she has provided job search services to a diverse range of clients across the U.S. and internationally in most any industry.

Before you launch your job search, consider these questions:

~ Does your resume meet the current standards that recruiters and hiring managers expect?
~ Does your resume “sell” you as an ideal candidate (i.e., marketing piece) or is it simply describing your background (i.e., obituary resume)?
~ Will your resume get past electronic scanning software (ATS) so that human eyes will review it?
~ Does your resume promote your features & benefits (i.e., relevant experience and accomplishments)?
~ Is your resume eye-appealing, succinctly written, and grammatically correct?

Are you ready for a helpful consultation? Complete the form found here: - and we’ll provide a complimentary assessment, useful suggestions, and recommendations that will accelerate your search.

Board Position
Board Bio
Kathy Keshemberg is a Nationally Certified Resume Writer (NCRW) and Nationally Certified Online Profile Expert (NCOPE).

For more than 3 decades she has developed resumes and LinkedIn profile content and provided job search coaching. Her company, A Career Advantage, serves job seekers in all industries and at all levels, primarily focusing on mid-management, blue collar, and entry level candidates. While based in Wisconsin, her passion is travel which is possible with a virtual business model. In the early 2000s her home base was a 5th wheel trailer which allowed her to work from many U.S. destinations. In late 2019 she spent 6 weeks in Australia and New Zealand, and is anxious to embark on more extended international trips.

Kathy served on the original board of directors of the NRWA when it became a national association, was one of the first NCRWs, and planned six NRWA conferences. She has been a grader on the Certification Commission for years, and has recently tackled several special projects including co-writing new test profiles and collaborating with a team to revamp the NCRW Study Guide.

Believing in the value of the NCRW credential, she is committed to protecting the integrity of the Certification Commission and continuing to train and develop graders and leadership.
