Hello and welcome! I’m Cristina Freeman. I help my clients stand out from the crowd and get to the next step in their careers.
Writing about yourself should be easy, but it’s not.
And actually telling your career story—a unique story that conveys your personal brand and value proposition so that it strikes a chord with your target audience— is even harder.
But I’m here to help! It’s what I love to do.
I craft interview-winning CVs/resumes, cover letters and LinkedIn profiles that showcase my clients’ unique value through the use of clear and concise writing, targeted keywords, and formatting. The result? Candidate profiles that open doors to new opportunities.
I would love to help you tell your career story. Are you ready to get started?

A few years ago, a client who had taken a hiatus in her career for family reasons saw the final draft of her CV and said to me, “Is that really me? I never realized I had done so many things.”
“Of course,” I told her, “It’s the same information you gave me—and it is indeed exactly who you are!”
Job searching can be one of the most stressful times of a person’s life. I’m here to help.
Everyone deserves to have meaningful, fulfilling work that pays well. I help my clients land that kind of job faster by crafting a clear message about who they are and how they can solve a prospective employer’s problem.
In the end, that’s what you, as a job candidate, are doing: offering a solution that a company cannot find elsewhere. With that clarity and the right keywords, doors begin to open.
This is what makes writing CVs, cover letters, and LinkedIn profiles so satisfying. I am an Academy Certified Resume Writer (ACRW), a Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) and member of the PARW and Career Thought Leaders.
Since 2004, I have been helping professionals from every industry take the next step in their career.

Cristina has helped me with my profile last year, which turned out to be key for getting the job I wanted. Together with her truly kind empathy, her professional way of delivering a CV and LI profile at the right time, makes it easy for me to recommend her services to anybody whose aim it is to get an excellent CV that addresses the really important issues that matter to recruiters.
Frank, CEO, Germany
I’ve received and accepted an offer for the Market Manager role this week. Thanks to your guidance, I was well prepared in my interviews with specific examples to support challenges and situations.
Keith, Market Manager, New York
Cristina helped me greatly with my LinkedIn profile. We had several online sessions and she even took time out during her holidays to visit my office in London so I had the lovely pleasure to meet her. She helped me to deliver an excellent profile summary that I am very happy with. Though English is her native language, she speaks fluent Spanish, which made it so easy to work with her as I am a native Spanish speaker. She is extremely professional and I highly recommended her.

If you need to be coached, you look for a coach. If you have a problem with the water pipes at home, you look for a plumber. Do you think you are good enough to write your resume on your own?
Salvador, Regional Director, Madrid
I have had the pleasure to work with Cristina creating several CVs and the content for my company’s website. Her ability to synthesize relevant information to make a CV stand out is impressive. She also gave my website a clear and appealing way to communicate with potential clients. She delivers excellent products in a timely manner and I give her my highest recommendation

Simplemente comentarte que he cambiado de posición y empresa…quería hacerte partícipe porque sin duda, el nuevo CV que me ayudaste a construir tiene un magnífico resultado y me ha abierto puertas que hasta ahora tenía cerradas simplemente por no saber transmitir todo mi potencial y que tan bien has sabido plasmar tanto en el CV como en el perfil de LinkedIn. (¡Ojalá te hubiera encontrado antes!)

More about me
I’ve lived back and forth between the United States and Spain throughout my life. I can write in either English or Spanish and translate between them. Most importantly, I understand the nature of the job markets on both sides of the Atlantic and can support your job candidature in Europe or North America.
Why I do what I do:
If you’ve ever been to one of my workshops, I speak about real people whom I have come across in my writing and career advising. The stories of David, Luis and Karen most likely will strike a chord with you. They, like most people, had trouble identifying their own value and talents, achievements and milestones, let alone those that really speak to their target audience. That means that before we met, they were conducting job searches in which their wow factor, their proudest moments, rarely made it onto paper, LinkedIn or into recruiters’ hands. And the job search just dragged on, chipping away at their energy and increasing their self-doubt: I thought I was qualified, but why am I not getting any calls for interviews?
After I listened to their stories, I was left thinking this:
Why didn’t David mention that marketing plan on his CV? He designed and executed it for the small start-up, with dramatic increase in online presence, followers and the start of online sales?
Or didn’t Luis realize that his patented product was evidence of his innovative thinking? Why did he just say “innovative thinker” in that list of skills that people include in their CVs without any evidence to support their claims? (Hint: no recruiter pays them too much heed if skills are just thrown into a list with no connection to real contributions.)
And Karen…what an incredible increase in her client portfolio, so why didn’t she have the starting figure on her CV? The comparison over the relatively short period of time speaks volumes about her talent, and it would have helped her really stand out from her competition.
If you’re like the above clients, you are not acknowledging your own value, and therefore, you will not be able to communicate it to employers. The result is falling short of your potential. And how sad for you and companies! You are not accessing the best opportunities for your talents and they are missing out on people like you who can really make a difference.
It’s my job to foster and inspire the self-awareness, language and self-marketing tools to link clients like David, Luis and Karen (and maybe you too) with better opportunities for personal and professional growth.
And more about why I love to do what I do:
The quote below links the kid in me with my passion working as wordsmith to help professionals develop and achieve their goals. It tells why the power of words and storytelling are important for everyone, no matter their profession, whether real or imagined.
“…If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer…
If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
(Just a quick note: I generally don’t work with magic bean buyers and prefer not to work with liars. But dreamers, wishers and hopers abound in my work and are welcome!)
