Get to know the other resume writers in our community with our “10 Questions” series!Today’s profile is Laura Slawson, MRW, CCM, CPRW of The Creative Advantage, LLC.
I love to write and always had a knack for it. I worked in corporate America for more than 20 years, and did technical writing, corporate policy and procedure writing, and composed documents for the c-suite. I started my career as a working Word Processing Supervisor and learned about word processing when no one even knew what it was! When friends and family asked me to do their resumes and I saw they were successful using the documents I created, I knew I could do this as a business.
3. What do you typically wear when you’re working?
Sneakers, leggings, a comfortable top and make-up. I’m always ready to meet clients virtually.
5. What’s your favorite object in your office? Why?
I sit on my deck in the sun with a cup of tea. My yard has so many trees, I love to just sit and listen to the birds.
When I was in my 20s, I worked for Panasonic and my boss told me, “Never come into my office with a problem unless you have a solution!” This stuck with me all these years.
8. How do you unplug?
I call my 90-year-old mother and my daughter every day. They are both strong, capable women who inspire me and give me great advice! I also like to sit on the deck and chat with my husband. I read and love to walk.
9. What ONE thing would you change about your business or the career industry, if you could?
I truly love what I do. I don’t think I’d change anything. I love helping others, working at my own pace, setting my own schedule and I’m never bored.
