be bold

I can’t think of a better way to spend my days than harnessing the power of words to bring the story of your career to life!

If you’re ready to turn your resume into an interview-winning machine, we should talk.


Hey there, I‘m so happy you landed here.

I’m Tammy Shoup, a multi-certified, breakthrough resume writer focused on serving you, the bold  business leader who has worked hard to attain success within your industry and I’m ready to pen your path to prosperous employment.

Since 1997, I’ve been on a mission to help job seekers from all backgrounds bring the story of their career to life.                    

My signature resumes are: Branded … Easy to read … Informative … Engaging … and ATS friendly.

Here’s my backstory …

I’ve been in your shoes and I know what it takes to land a new role. I’ve been laid off due to a slow economy and budget cuts. I’ve taken the reins to seek out new employment after a great management team was replaced with new leadership leading to a toxic culture. And, I’ve sought out new challenging roles without tipping my hand.

I am familiar with that overwhelming feeling of dread that washes over your entire being when faced with trying to find a new job. I also understand how time-consuming and frustrating it is to figure out what pieces of your career you should use and what information won’t work for your current career goals.

My own job search taught me that a strategically crafted resume would open the door to more interviews giving me a competitive edge. The same holds true for you!

My career breakthrough came after I left a position as an Executive Assistant with an innovative, renewable energy manufacturing facility and launched an executive support firm. From there, I leveraged my love for the written word and turned my focus toward writing words that change lives –and that’s how BreakthroughResumes.com was born.

It took a while, but I finally found my calling. Over the years, I’ve written miles of words –resumes and other job search documents for emerging business leaders and senior executives who want to transition into a new role by transforming the otherwise bland details of your employment history into an engaging narrative that helps you stand out and land a new role faster.

Building a strong, branded resume is like taking all the pieces of a puzzle and fitting them together to create a beautiful work of art. I can’t wait to help you craft your masterpiece.

Here we are two decades later and I’m still penning a path to prosperous employment for industry leaders just like you! Helping them go from invisible to the top of the pile by defining their unique value proposition and highlighting their strengths, skills, and expertise –making it easy for their target employer to quickly grasp who they are and why they are the answer to their prayers!

You don’t have to struggle with crafting your own resume. As your career storyteller, I will

… help you gain clarity, confidence, and control of your job search from day one.

… help you identify your strengths and unleash your career story to help you reach your job search goals faster.

… help you articulate your unique value proposition via a branded resume, cover Letter, executive bio, and LinkedIn profile.

Investing in yourself could be the most profitable investment you’ve ever made!
