Judy MonacoJudy began her career practicing primarily business litigation at the Philadelphia law firm of Duane Morris, LLP. She subsequently spent 10 years serving as in-house counsel for 2 major corporations in the Philadelphia area where she negotiated multimillion-dollar transactions, managed litigation, sat on executive committees, and oversaw corporate governance.

Tapping into her entrepreneurial spirit, Judy decided to open her own practice. After noticing that so many colleagues were unhappy in their positions, she became passionate about helping them find a better fit. Her experience in and love of writing led naturally to résumé writing.

Judy holds a JD, cum laude, from Temple University School of Law where she was Articles Editor for Temple Law Review, and a BA in Psychology from the University of Delaware where she was a member of the Psi Chi Honor Society. Judy holds 2 professional résumé-writing certifications from nationally recognized agencies—Certified Professional Résumé Writer (CPRW) and Academy Certified Résumé Writer (ACRW).

Because Judy has practiced law for nearly 2 decades—in law firms and corporations—she has a unique, in-depth understanding of the different environments in which her colleagues practice. As such, she is more skilled than most other résumé writers at identifying legal professionals’ qualifications and achievements, and knows what hiring managers seek in a candidate. This affords legal professionals the competitive edge they need in securing the right position faster.

Executives

Having served as Corporate Secretary for several corporations, Judy also routinely participated in board meetings, which emanated within her a deep understanding of business processes, culture, philosophy, and most of all…people. She incorporates all of these elements into the strategy she develops to help position executives on top in their next career move.
