  Galen Michaels & Associates | Professional Résumé Writers

About Our Company

Galen Michaels & Associates Professional Résumé Writers is a subsidiary of The Write Touch Professional Writing Services, LLC, specializing in resume counseling, preparation, and ancillary services for the purpose of helping people either attain gainful employment or improve their present employment situation. We increase the probability of a resume getting noticed through a well-balanced, organizational approach to matching talents, abilities, accomplishments, and results with career ambitions and then presenting it all succinctly in a finely crafted document.

We work with experienced writers who have been, at one point or another in their careers, hiring managers. We also have writers who work with students looking to advance after graduation. We empathize with the emotional state of people seeking our services since we have all been in their situations… through layoffs, downsizings, rightsizings, terminations, and poor career decision making. We don’t presume to understand clients feelings and emotions… we know them first-hand, because we’ve been there!

Galen Michaels & Associates Professional Résumé Writers is organized based on the principle that the act of working and earning is a fundamental building block of American society and that anyone who wishes to work should be afforded that opportunity.
