Maria E. Hebda, CCMC, CPRW
I am a nationally published Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW), Certified Career Management Coach (CCMC), and job search strategist specializing in career marketing and management.
At Career Solutions, we work one-on-one with our clients and take the time to learn about each one's career needs, what his or her goals are—and we take a personal interest in each one's career success. My writing talents and ability to uniquely design resumes and cover letters have proven my expertise in resume and cover letter development. (Professional affiliate and client testimonials.)
As a result, my work is featured in numerous career publications, and I was personally recruited by David Opton, Founder and CEO of ExecuNet, due to my strength and ability to write and effectively market professionals to their fullest potential. ExecuNet is a premier executive job, career, and networking organization.
As an authorized DISC Administrator and active member of ProfilingPro, I am qualified to provide my clients with behavioral analysis assessment materials to help them learn which unique values their behavioral style brings to the workplace—and how they can utilize this information to communicate it to appropriate hiring authorities.
In addition, I am a member in good standing with several career organizations, adhere to the code of ethics of each organization, and attend annual career-related conferences to continue my personal professional development.

What does it mean to be a CPRW?
The CPRW certification is awarded by the Professional Association of Resume Writers & Career Coaches (PARW/CC). Resume writers must pass a timed examination comprising four modules. The examination tests the writer's industry knowledge and understanding of the resume-writing field, command for grammar, punctuation, spelling, and proofreading skills.
To test resume and cover letter writing ability, the resume writer is required to create each document based upon background information provided by the PARW/CC. The resume and cover letter are developed for a hypothetical client. Certification examinations are evaluated by three CPRWs who are members of the PARW/CC Certification Committee Board.
A CPRW must be a member in good standing with the PARW/CC and must also continue professional development to maintain writing skills and knowledge of the careers industry. The CPRW credential was established in 1991 and is recognized as the standard of the industry.
What does it mean to be a CCMC?
The CCMC is awarded by the Career Coach Academy. Career coaches completing the CCMC program undergo a rigorous and distinctive 3-month training program that includes practical application of coaching principles.
Coaches must pass a written examination and live-coaching evaluation conducted by a professional, certified coach. CCMCs learn core coaching competencies aligned with the International Coach Federation guidelines that help clients to find focus, unravel road blocks, and achieve change.
Coaches are trained across the career continuum, incorporating principles of career development theory. To maintain the CCMC credential, coaches must earn 10 continuing education units devoted specifically to techniques and innovations in career coaching and accepted by the Career Coach Academy.
I have worked professionally in the career management area for more than 25 years, and my work is published around the globe. In this time, I have reviewed many resumes and cover letters, both for my review and for inclusion in my best-selling resume and letter books. Maria Hebda and I are professional colleagues, and I have included some of her resume and letter writing work in these books. Why? She has a knack for creating clear, concise, and convincing word packages; she's a great ally in a job hunt.

You can get free reviews almost anywhere on the Internet, the value added is that the writers who do the reviews for our members are those who have "vetted" and who we know work to the highest ethical and professional work standards. At ExecuNet, we were fortunate enough to be able to work with Maria as part of our resume review team for more than nine years, which in this day and age of shorter and shorter business relationships, all by itself says something about her professionalism. It isn’t just that she is an excellent and accomplished resume writer; that goes without saying. The standard of performance that she sets for herself in what she does consistently translates into satisfied clients.”
David Opton, Founder & CEO - ExecuNet
"There are thousands of resume writers in the U.S., but there are only a very few with the quality of writing skills that Maria Hebda consistently displays. Every time I write a resume or cover letter book that includes contributions from other writers, I anxiously await for Maria's contributions, knowing that they will be some of the best that I will receive. Her grasp of language is extraordinary, and her ability to translate an individual's career history into a powerful marketing document are exceptional. She has reached the top of her profession and will be there for years to come."

"... and they reviewed my resume and concluded that my background, accomplishments, and experience were exactly what they had to have to move the company to the next level. No way would that have been possible without the work you did on my resume. Further, the Disc assessment results enabled me to see that I'd compromised much of what I valued. I can't remember when I invested in myself as I did with you...but, I'm sure glad I did."
— Matt K. - Business Development Executive, OH
"I have to tell you Maria, everybody that has read my resume has been very impressed. I had owners and CEOs at a couple of different companies read the resume that you wrote for me, and I'm very happy about my decision to have you help me with my resume. What you provided me was worth far more than I could have ever paid you. Thank you so much for your help! I want you to know that you can definitely count on me as a return client. Thanks again, and I look forward to working with you more in the future."
— Bob C. - Entrepreneurial Business Executive, IN
"I sent my resume out to recruiters, I never posted it on any job search board. I got called back from every recruiter to the point where I was turning many down. Everyone that I was interviewed by was very impressed with my resume. You did an excellent job in focusing on what they were looking for. Needless to say, the company I selected is where the lowest paid sales-person made $105,000 last year! This is an incredible opportunity for me, and I have you to thank!"
— Chad G. - Sales Professional, MI
"Just wanted you to know that the company I interviewed for made me an offer yesterday which I accepted! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your help."

— Alfred B. - Technology Management Executive, NJ
"I would like to acknowledge the professional manner on how Maria handled my project. I will certainly recommend my friends and colleagues."
