About Us

Greetings and welcome!

As independent recruiters and professional LinkedIn users, my team and I have watched in awe as LinkedIn has grown to over a half a billion members.  We’ve reviewed tens of thousands of profiles over the years, and had thousands of conversations.  Obviously we know what recruiters look for!  We know what works with companies that are hiring, and we know what doesn’t work.

Along the way, we made a really surprising discovery:  most professionals simply don’t know how to promote themselves effectively.  Even sophisticated marketing and sales executives have a blind spot when it comes to marketing themselves!  We founded ProfileGraderPro to help professionals at all levels upgrade their profiles in every dimension and successfully market themselves using LinkedIn.

We’d love to hear from you and help you get discovered for a career move that you love and that you prosper in!

Wishing you success in your career,
