Natalie founded Best Foot Forward in 2009, and in 2013 she purchased purchased Virtual Résumés, a company she'd been working for as a freelancer. She works with a team of experienced writers available across Canada to serve your needs, with extensive writing experience across all industries, but specialties in military to civilian transitions, as well as firefighter, police, and paramedic positions.
“Together, we have over 30 years’ experience on the 'other side of the desk.' As experienced hiring managers, we know what works. We really get how recruiters and human resources professionals think and the résumés we create reflect this knowledge.
Over the years we have conducted more than 3,000 face-to-face interviews and have screened more than 15,000 candidates over the phone. So, if there is one thing we know better than anyone else, it’s how to write interview-winning résumés for our clients."
